Real Madrid open to selling Manchester United's midfield target

Real Madrid open to selling Manchester United's midfield target

Levante will hope to pile the pressure on Julen Lopetegui and Real Madrid by taking at least a point from their upcoming fixture, however amidst reports of tension in the Spanish capital the former Porto coach has made clear he feels supported by those in power at the club.

"Today we will see, it is the last training session before the game", he said.

"He has had bad luck with injuries, results, players that are not in the best moment". "We are just really looking forward to tomorrow's game".

On Isco, Lopetegui said: 'He's a very important player, no doubt about that, like many of them, he's had appendicitis, it's hard to control.

While Bale may be fit, Lopetegui also has concerns over Marcelo (calf) and Dani Caravajal ahead of what is a must-win match for Los Blancos, though Isco has recovered from appendicitis to return for Real.

'He's obviously someone that will come in to play and help us out in the near future. This season is only beginning, nobody knows yet what will happen.

"I understood what you were asking", Lopetegui said.

Vinicius returns to Madrid with the wind firmly in his sails after an global break that has seen the starlet further stake his claim for a regular first-team role at the Bernabéu.

"I have full confidence in the squad that I have, I'm convinced of what we're trying to do", he admitted. Each season has ups and downs, but I am sure we will arrive strong at the end.

Lopetegui was sacked just two days before Spain's opening game in Russian Federation as he agreed a deal with Real Madrid without their permission. There are three points in play, which could bring us top of the table, and we must focus on that.
