Real Madrid negotiating with Tottenham Hotspur manager

According to, Real Madrid are setting aside as much as €300m (£262m) for their summer expenditure and plan to use the bulk of it to tempt the side into a sale.

In a remarkable night, goals from Javier Eraso and Gabriel advanced Leganes into the semifinal of the cup.

It's now a full-blown crisis in Madrid.

Cristiano Ronaldo remains the biggest obstacle to the deal. The team's poor run of results are refusing to dissipate.

It was not a complete showing from Madrid, who let Valencia back into the game in the second half via Santi Mina's header, but they came on strong again in the final quarter hour and sealed a hugely important victory thanks to late goals by Marcelo and Toni Kroos.

The race for the three Champions League spots could take a crucial turn tomorrow, when third-placed Marseille host reigning champions Monaco, who sit just a place and one point adrift.


Valencia lost 2-1 to Las Palmas in their last game.

Neymar was absent for the 2-1 loss with an apparent thigh problem and hasn't played since returning from a rib injury for the thrashing of Dijon, while reports in Spain have claimed Real Madrid are hopeful of signing the 25-year-old.

Will there be a victor this time around?

The reigning Spanish and European champions travel to Valencia this weekend where defeat would leave the Frenchman hanging on to his job after the midweek Copa del Rey knock-out.

MADRID, SPAIN - SEPTEMBER 20: Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid CF reacts as he fail to score during the La Liga match between Real Madrid CF and Real Betis Balompie at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on September 20, 2017 in Madrid, Spain.

Zidane has admitted his future may well depend on the outcome of that tie and Real beating an in-form Valencia at least proves they are still capable of delivering when it matters most.
