Lopetegui wants to ‘reinvent’ Real

Here are the latest rumors from around Europe.

That means he will miss a clash against the Major League Soccer All-Stars in Atlanta in the early hours of Thursday morning in addition to a swift reunion with former employers Real Madrid at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland at the weekend.

While it was previously reported the Brazilian would not be part of the first-team squad this season, his display in the 2-1 defeat has given manager Julen Lopetegui some food for thought. This move would be a solid step for the ex-New York Red Bulls star, as he looks for more playing time in Europe. "After one day, (I thought) maybe it is possible".

The 29-year-old's frustrations sparked rumours of a move to Manchester United but Zidane has since departed the Santiago Bernabeu and replaced by Lopetegui, while Ronaldo completed a sensational €112million transfer to Juventus. "He's with the team, he's happy, he's in line with our goals and it's a start of a new exciting path for us that I'm looking forward to". He is an extraordinary player who will give us his best version. "He showed his intention to leave and the club facilitated his exit recognising the extraordinary legacy he left".

The Welshman's career in Madrid has been blighted by injury and occasional dips in form, which saw him become a bit-part player last season under Zinedine Zidane .

Ronaldo's is expected to make his first competitive match for Juventus in Serie A opener against Chievo on August, 19.

"I would say [my introduction was] great".

On Thursday he was showing off some of his tricks and flicks that have enabled him to remain at the top of the game for so long.

Madrid, meanwhile, have been linked with a host of stars as they attempt to replace five-time Ballon d'Or victor and all-time leading scorer Ronaldo. "We want to keep enjoying these performances that Keylor has given Madrid".
