Sergio Ramos Isco Real Madrid Valencia La Liga 2019

Real Madrid could sell Thibaut Courtois or Keylor Navas this summer after head coach Zinedine Zidane said on Tuesday the club will have a clear first-choice goalkeeper next season.

Bale had started each of Zidane's first two games, offering hope there might yet be a future for him in new era, but his relegation to the bench suggests the Frenchman's old doubts may linger.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup victor is said to be a target for Real head coach Zinedine Zidane within a new wave Galacticos in their rebuilding plans and former United midfielder Paul Ince feels it will be hard to keep him away from the 13-time European champions.

A ninth La Liga defeat of the season leaves Madrid now 13 points behind La Liga leaders Barcelona with eight games remaining - and also already out of the Champions League and Copa del Rey.

The win extended their unbeaten run to 17 games in all competitions, their longest stretch without defeat in their 100-year history.

And when the Otay Mesa, California, entry port closed for the night Monday, 150 trucks were still waiting to get into the U.S. Trump administration officials are pulling back the president's threat to shut the southern border as soon as this week.

"We were in control for the first half then they scored and got more confident". We will keep trying to improve.

Zidane reiterated his previous comments that he does not regard the closing weeks of the season as an audition for his squad.

"It's Ole's job to do some convincing now, convince players like Pogba and David de Gea that they're better off at Old Trafford". We have to be proud of our players. This is a team who always battles and fights, even if we do not play as we want, even if the season is hard like this. "We have these games left and we want to do well. Solidarity and playing as a team were our strengths". It's a defeat and defeat always hurts.

The 13 time European champions reportedly set for a squad overhaul in the summer, these last few games of Madrid's hard season are a good opportunity for Zidane to see which of his current crop are worthy of a place in his squad next season. We lacked a bit of punch up front, the first half hour we played very well, pressing them up top, but we did not find the first goal, did not get create enough. He is an important player and I like how he plays. "We must also live the bad moments, it will not change anything".
