Marcelo blasts Los Blancos after shock home defeat to Villarreal

Real Madrid retains an increased interest in star striker PSG Neymar

While Real Madrid's form in Europe has been solid, and beating Paris Saint-Germain to reach the quarterfinals wouldn't be stunning, relying on beating the other 15 best clubs in the world to a continental title isn't the most efficient manner of qualification.

With Real Madrid now 19 points behind LaLiga leaders FC Barcelona, new reports suggest that Los Blancos have already identified a replacement for manager Zinedine Zidane.

Mundo Deportivo went on to claim "Villarreal beat them at the Bernabeu and risk their place in the Champions League".

Coach Marcelino Toral seems to have found the right chemistry for his players as they remain the side with second most goals scored in the league; 40 behind FC Barcelona with 52 goals. Villarreal had gone into the Bernabeu and came out winners, jumping up to fifth place in La Liga, a point behind Real Madrid (at least for the moment).

The Real Madrid superstar believes that Klopp would bring with himself a sense of attacking impetus that has been missing under Zidane this season.

Salah's sensational form this season has caught the eye of the Merengue, who have struggled to score goals.

The polling stations will close at 22:00 on Friday night and the election will continue from 8:00 till 14:00 on Saturday. Polls close at 2 p.m. on January 13, and the first results are due later the same day.

Real controlled much of the first half, and had the first sight of goal on 17 minutes when Marcelo lashed a strike from distance which Sergio Asenjo turned away with a strong fingertip. I can't criticise them for anything.

The hosts were unhappy, and things almost got worse in the first few minutes of the second half when substitute and former Real player Denis Cheryshev dispossessed Casemiro and danced through the defence, only to drag his shot wide of Navas' post.

This was unheard of last season.

Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal said his side were in the eye of a tornado after losing 0-1 to Villarreal in LaLiga on Saturday, but was at a loss to explain his side's predicament.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski is reportedly plotting a move to Real Madrid as well. They also led Celta Vigo at half-time in their early January league game, only to drop two points after the interval and it was a second-half collapse that saw them lose 3-0 at home to Barcelona in El Clasico's most recent instalment. The latest result was the fourth time Madrid lost this season. At United, Ronaldo won three Premier League titles, the FA Cup, two League Cups and the Champions League, scoring 118 goals in 292 matches.
