GETTY Real Madrid star Gareth Bale is still a target for Manchester United

It appears Manchester United are free to pursue their interest in Juventus' Alex Sandro unchallenged, with Chelsea reportedly dropping their interest in the fullback. The Costa Rican has redeemed himself after giving away the penalty kick in the first instance. "But I am not that type of coach".

That left the champions 14 points adrift of Barca - albeit with a game in hand - and knowing they will need something approaching a miracle to overturn the deficit to their arch rivals.

Zinedine Zidane's side fell further behind runaway La Liga leaders Barcelona after Maxi Gomez scored late on to claim a 2-2 draw for Celta Vigo on Sunday night. All signs point towards Conte leaving Chelsea at the end of the season, and Löw may fancy a change after the World Cup, which will be his sixth tournament in charge of Die Mannschaft.

Ronaldo had a powerful header kept out by Blanco and Madrid's failure to build on its lead looked set to cost it dearly when Navas brought down Aspas in the box.

Zidane, however, insists his side will get back on track with collective hard work and is adamant there are reasons to be positive for the rest of the season.

Real Madrid's hopes of retaining their La Liga crown are over. Teams are not fearing them anymore. So it's true that it hurts him when they don't support him, but provide that help to players who aren't as good a shim.

What's more, the front line just isn't working. And every time they stumble, like they have done this campaign, there is inevitably a massive summer of spending to follow.

"What we lacked? The second half and playing for 90 minutes", the Coach said after the game.

"We're sad and we're f***ing sunk", he said.

Casemiro then stung the palms of Bravo with a strike from distance, but it was Celta that made the breakthrough in the 33rd minute following a quick counter-attack.

Furthermore, it is being reported by our source that Real Madrid were willing to offer Liverpool far more for the attacking midfielder than Barcelona actually paid for his services.

Is Cristiano Ronaldo now approaching the winter of his career - or does he still have a lot more in the tank?

Ter Stegen 6. A quiet afternoon in goal for the German, with Levante managing to send most of their few decent chances off target, but he did make one excellent save with his foot to deny Moore.
