Ronaldo availability unknown for Man City clash

Cristiano Ronaldo has suffered a thigh muscle injury, but Real Madrid have given no indication if he will be fit for their Champions League clash with Manchester City.

The 31-year-old came off the pitch moments before the final whistle during Madrid's 3-0 Primera Division victory over Villarreal on Wednesday night after falling awkwardly.

Madrid face a trip to Rayo Vallecano on Saturday before Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first-leg clash at the Etihad Stadium.

Previously, Ronaldo had played every minute of every league game this season for Los Blancos, but there were fears he could miss some of the title run-in.

Ronaldo posted on Instagram that everything was "All good" on Thursday, but a statement from Madrid read: "Following tests carried out today on Cristiano Ronaldo in the Sanitas La Moraleja University Hospital, he has been diagnosed with a muscle strain in his right thigh. His recovery will continue to be assessed."

Man City sell every ticket for Real Madrid semi-final

Only a limited number of hospitality tickets remain for the first leg of the glamour tie at the Etihad Stadium next Tuesday.

City attracted criticism as tickets for their previous home game in the competition, against Paris Saint-Germain earlier this month, sold slowly.

But, despite complaints about prices from some fans, that game did eventually sell out with a new club European attendance record of 53,039 being set.

This time, with a discount scheme in operation for loyal supporters, tickets have been snapped up a week in advance with no general sale taking place.

Ronaldo hits late Clasico winner in the Nou Camp

Cristiano Ronaldo hit a late winner to hand 10-man Real Madrid a shock 2-1 win in a fiery El Clasico and end Barcelona's long unbeaten run.

The Portuguese star pounced five minutes from the end of a pulsating La Liga clash at the Nou Camp, just moments after his captain Sergio Ramos had been sent off for the 20th time in his career.

Real had already come from behind with Karim Benzema scoring a superb equaliser to cancel out a Gerard Pique header early in the second half.

The defeat, on what was an emotional occasion for Barca in their first outing since the death of Johan Cruyff, was the Catalan side's first in 40 matches in all competitions.

It also provided a potential twist in the Primera Division title race, with Barca's lead over Atletico Madrid at the top now cut to six points and with Real just another point further behind.

It was Real's first win at the Nou Camp for three years and came in Zinedine Zidane's first Clasico in charge of the team.

Cristiano Ronaldo hits four against Celta Vigo

Cristiano Ronaldo scored four second-half goals in Real Madrid's 7-1 thrashing of Celta Vigo at the Bernabeu.

Gareth Bale marked his return from a hamstring injury by scoring in his first appearance in 50 days, while Pepe and Jese also got on the scoresheet for the Merengues.

Iago Aspas got Celta's only goal in their worst defeat of the season, but the afternoon really belonged to Ronaldo, who moved on to 26 Primera Division goals for the season, one ahead of Barcelona forward Luis Suarez.

De Gea's Real Madrid contract leaks online

David de Gea was set to earn £9.2million a year on a deal to 2021 at Real Madrid had he completed a move from Manchester United last summer, according to the Football Leaks website.

United and Madrid in August agreed a £29million transfer that would have seen the goalkeeper swap Old Trafford for the Bernabeu, but the proposed switch fell through after the requisite paperwork was not submitted before the Spanish deadline.

On Monday, Football Leaks published a document it claims is the contract De Gea was due to sign at Madrid.

It shows the Spain international would have received a figure of 11,818,182 euros (£9.2million) for each season from 2015-16 to 2020-21.

There is also mention of a break clause of 500million euros (£388million), which De Gea would have been obliged to pay if he walked out on his contract.

Only a few days after the move failed to materialise, United announced De Gea - who joined them from Atletico Madrid on a five-year deal in 2011 - had signed a new four-year contract, with an option to extend for a further year.

That deal was reportedly worth £200,000 per week. The figures from the Football Leaks document equate to around £176,000 per week.
