Real Madrid


Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has denied reports that he will be taking over the Portugal job. It had been suggested that the Real Madrid boss could take temporary charge of his homeland for a Euro 2012 double-header against Denmark and Iceland in October.


Jose Mourinho is keen on being re-united with Ricardo Carvalho by bringing him to Real Madrid. The defender, who was with Mourinho at Porto, joined him at Stamford Bridge in 2004 for a fee reported to be £19.85 million, going on to make over 200 appearances for the west London club.

But in recent times, the Portugal international has fallen down the pecking order at Chelsea - with previous reports indicating that manager Carlo Ancelotti may be looking to pair skipper John Terry with Alex in the heart of his defence next season.


The new coach of Real Madrid, Jose Mourinho, has singled out the areas of the team he feels needs strengthening.

The former Inter tactician has wasted no time in assessing his squad as he begins his newly-signed four-year contract at the Real Madrid.

One of the main areas he wants to strengthen is the full-back position, despite the La Liga runners-up spending £6 million on Liverpool’s Alvaro Arbeloa on a five-year-deal last season.

"Real have a right-back that I like very much in Sergio Ramos," Mourinho told Spanish radio station Cadena Ser.

MAdrid Still Hope

Real Madrid coach Manuel Pellegrini has warned Barcelona they are not champions yet, insisting the Blaugrana's El Clasico victory at the Bernabeu won't be enough to secure the Liga title.

"We said before the Clasico that whoever won the match cannot afford to think they are the champions and that whoever lost cannot believe the league is over,” said Pellegrini at a press conference today.

“The season ends on May 16, so we will try to cut into the lead until the very last match.”

Real Chase Silva

Real Madrid are reportedly ready to rival Premier League sides Manchester United and Liverpool for winger David Silva.

The slight Spaniard has been courted by a handful of clubs in recent years, with both United and Liverpool thought to be just two of the leading clubs chasing a signature.

Silva and Valencia team-mate David Villa are continuously courted by the cream of europe, with Los Che suffering serious financial difficulties that threatened a mass exodus from the Mestalla only a year ago.
