Liverpool target Real Madrid and Genoa wingers but do they need more?

"I'm happy to be linked with the club".

Valverde's men completed a ideal pre-season on the field with a fourth straight win by sweeping aside Chapecoense 5-0 on Monday in a match to raise funds for the stricken Brazilian club who lost 19 players and 24 club officials in a plane crash a year ago.

Isco has signed his contract renewal with Real Madrid, a reliable club source has confirmed to Diario AS.

Asensio joined Madrid from Mallorca for just £3m in 2014 and he's developed in to one of the hottest properties in Spanish football over the past three years.

FC Barcelona are reportedly plotting a shock bid for one of Real Madrid's up-and-coming stars.

Madrid, as champions of La Liga last season, play the second fixture at home against Copa del Rey winners Barcelona, who will be featuring in their first competitive match under new coach Ernesto Valverde. "I'm happy for working so well with my staff".

Tottenham Hotspur were believed to be circling at the start of 2017, and Isco regularly hinted to the press that he could leave Real Madrid at the end of the 2016-17 season. And the objectives are always the same: trying to win every single game and every single title.

But whoever comes in will play very well too. The staff are doing a great job, we do not fail because of the relationship in the dressing room.

Lionel Messi، Jordi Alba، Samuel Umtiti and Arda Turan were all pictured training with their Barcelona team-mates as they aim to build up their fitness levels and sharpness ahead of the upcoming campaign.

Zidane has also overseen a Club World Cup win and two Uefa Super Cup successes, with the most recent of those coming against Manchester United.

Real manager Zinedine Zidane is gradually starting to hand the starlet more first-team responsibilities at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, but Barca would likely look to hand him more starting chances after Neymar's departure. "If we think it is going to be easier tomorrow we will be mistaken".
