Zidane anxious as AC Milan unsettle Real Madrid ace Modric

Zidane anxious as AC Milan unsettle Real Madrid ace Modric

Cristiano Ronaldo played just seven minutes in the victory over United as he made his return having missed Madrid's pre-season preparations as he was given an extended break after his exertions for Portugal in the Confederations Cup.

Valverde's men completed a ideal pre-season on the field with a fourth straight win by sweeping aside Chapecoense 5-0 on Monday in a match to raise funds for the stricken Brazilian club who lost 19 players and 24 club officials in a plane crash past year.

It is said no player in the Madrid first team has a release clause lower than €500 with players in the youth tea, already on €300.

Of course, that means that Real Madrid would have to win the head-to-head tiebreaker, given that goal difference is not the first tiebreaker in La Liga.

Numerous combatants on both sides wore helmets and held shields, and some in the crowd brandished wooden poles. Eventually, more protestors arrived, carrying flags along East Market Street.

From one Real prodigy to another, Diario Gol (h/t Jack Otway of the Daily Express) reported United manager and former Los Blancos chief Jose Mourinho failed in an attempt to sign 16-year-old defender Gutierrez.

Since joining Real Madrid, Isco has won three Champions League titles and La Liga once, the Super Cup three times and the Club World Cup twice as well as one Copa del Rey.

Zidane had cut his teeth with the club's B-team before he was promoted following Rafael Benitez's departure, and will hope to stave off new Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde in remaining the dominant force in Spanish football this term.

Gerard Deulofeu went off with a knock in Monday's match, but he should be fine for the Supecopa test and looks set to start after Neymar's move to Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month.

Barca have added more pace to their side with the return of winger Gerard Deulofeu after stints in England and Italy although the Spaniard can not be expected to be a replacement for Neymar. "This is going to be a hard year because already on Sunday we have a complicated match".
