Real Madrid have not had the best of seasons so far, and Jose Mourinho knows that only a miracle will help to retain the title of Spanish champions. All the focus now is on the Champions league, though, and the visit of Manchester United to the Bernabeu tomorrow. Madrid have not lost a home game in any competition this season, and Alex Ferguson will be well aware that his best chance of overcoming Mourinho will be at Old Trafford.
Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez apparently said that Jose Mourinho “would not go down in football history.” The Real Madrid has responded by urging the Spanish midfielder to stick to what he knows, namely “playing football.” In a subtle swipe, he also claimed that Xavi did not need to be a nice person to be an idol at Barcelona.
There is a crazy story that claims that AC Milan may be preparing a 200 million euro bid for Christiano Ronaldo. The money would come from the Sheikh of Dubai who wants 25% of the club, according to Corriere dello Sport.
