13:00 – Awards ‘not an objective’ says Varane after FIFA, UEFA snubs

Real Madrid and France defender Raphael Varane says he is unbothered by snubs which saw him left out of the final three-man shortlists for both the UEFA and FIFA awards for best men’s player.

In 2017/18, Varane became just the ninth player to win the Champions League and World Cup in the same season, starring for Madrid as they won Europe’s premier club trophy for a historic third time and then guiding a solid France defence in their triumph in Russia.

“I’m glad you told me about it, but it’s not a topic of debate within the group,” Varane said.

11:00 – Real Madrid track Napoli star Zielinski

Real Madrid have joined Liverpool and Manchester City in the hunt for highly-rated Napoli midfielder Piotr Zielinski, reports Calciomercato.

The 24-year-old was a vital cog in the Partenopei machine last season, netting seven goals in 47 games in all competitions.

His impressive showings in Serie A led to interest from Los Blancos, as well as Liverpool and Man City, but Napoli remain adamant that the player is happy at Stadio San Paolo.

Three times Champions League winner Zizou

According to The Mirror Zinedine Zidane has already told friends he is expecting a call from Manchester United about replacing Jose Mourinho.

The former Real Madrid boss is reportedly high on the short list to take over from the Portuguese at Old Trafford if current results do not improve.

Mourinho has endured a battling few months at the Red Devils, with high profile spats with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over transfers and on-going drama with want-away Paul Pogba.

On the field, United have made a disastrous start to the Premier League campaign with shock defeats to Tottenham and Watford, although the last up win against Burnley lifted spirits until Pogba plunged the club into more uncertainty.

Zidane is on high alert to arrive at United despite reports Woodward is still backing the manager and awaiting to see how the side progress in the Champions League.

The French legend has been out of management since departing the Bernabeu following his third straight Champions League title.

The Mirror speculates that Zizou has already begun compiling a list of targets he would like to transfer to United if he were to take over the helm, which of course would include a number of his former Real stars.
