Real Madrid join Juventus in Emre Can's chase

Former Brazil Under-20 coach Ney Franco believes Real Madrid's Casemiro has established himself as one of the world's best defensive midfielders.

The midfielder impressed for Real in victory at Malaga yesterday, scoring against his former club for the win.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Raphael Varane were also spared the trip to La Rosaleda. Bale has won three Champions League trophies during his five-year stay in Spain and will hope for another title this season with Real Madrid facing Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

Against Juve, Karim Benzema made way for Bale by dropping to the bench but Zidane says neither player feels sidelined by recent selections.

AS don't explain how much that offer would be, but they point out Casemiro's buyout clause is €200m and PSG aren't going to match that.

"Managing the team? It's not easy, I wanted to do it as best as possible, rotating the squad and resting players, even though not everyone can rest". "He has to score goals of course, he knows that - he knows he can do other things but he has to score goals".

"It is just a little blip he is in at the moment - we had that as a team earlier in the season but we kept working".

As Ronaldo completes his transformation from winger into striker, a new left winger wouldn't go amiss and given Chelsea look set to miss out on Champions League football, Hazard could be tempted by the glamour if becoming a Galactico.

"Vidal is an important player but nothing will change", Zidane said.

"We must learn to live with these remarks and accept that this is what they want to focus on".
