Marcelo called Ronaldo, 'the best in the world, ' demonstrating just how much they miss the Portuguese global. Bale has emerged as Ronaldo's closest replacement after a season or two on the sidelines under Zinedine Zidane, and he scored against Girona.

And how do you do that for a side that sold Cristiano Ronaldo without replacing him?

The Brazilian was hauled out and Nacho introduced when Madrid was leading 3-1 and accepted that he was surprised by the change made by Julen Lopetegui. I didn't understand the change but I respect it.

"I wanted to continue because I was fine, I was 100 percent".

"It's a decision made by the manager".

Modric's debut as an official Real Madrid player took place two days after his presentation in a match against Barcelona in which ended in Los Blancos lifting the Supercopa de Espana.

In an ironic twist, Variety reports that Argento's ex-husband, Italian pop singer Morgan , is her likely replacement. A growing number of Italians had taken to social media demanding that Argento be pulled from the show.

Real Madrid had preferred to use their goalkeeper, Keylor Navas than using the Belgium global.

But the former Spain boss has come under-fire for not handing a start to new arrival Thibaut Courtois.

"I've got some really good options in goal and there are no problems in that area", Lopetegui explained. "In a hard moment of the game we have shown we know how to play".

"If we are conscious of the fact and have the mentality to play as a team, we have players to go far and have a great league campaign".

This means that he might not get any playing chances this season except if the Los Blancos decide to rest Keylor Navas.

"I've got some thoughts in my mind, but I'm not going to share them".
