Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has refused to rule out the possibility of signing goalkeeper Victor Valdes
If El Clasico was won on Facebook likes, Barcelona (77m) would edge it over Real Madrid (75.5m). But when you look at a world map to see which club is the most popular in each nation, it's clear that Real has some serious catching up to do.
Crystal Palace defender Brede Hangeland remains happy at Selhurst Park despite struggling to make the first team under Neil Warnock.
"I haven't played as much as I'm used to but I'm at an age now in my career that personal ambitions are not as high as they used to be, I just want to be a part of a good club and play when called upon but if not I'll support the lads from the sidelines," Hangeland told the club's official website.
"It's a different experience for me, I've been used to playing all of the games all of the time but now it's about being realistic.
"I played around 50 games a year for 10 years running and my hips seem to know so!"
Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has confirmed that Luis Suarez will make his Barca debut during El Clasico at the Bernabeu on Saturday.
Suarez's return from his four-month ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini at last summer's World Cup adds spice to the classic encounter.
The manager now has a decision to make as to whether he starts his marquee signing on the bench or goes with a three-pronged attack with Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi.
Enrique is highly unlikely to split the Argentinian and the Brazilian, who have scored 13 goals between them in the last five games but he has revealed that Suarez will definitely feature in some capacity on Saturday.
"Today I cannot play this game but you will have assurance he will play minutes," he told Spanish media at his pre-match press conference. "How many? I do not know.
"It's an important occasion for him and he will have minutes."
Wayne Rooney will miss Manchester United's game against Chelsea on Sunday as he serves the final game of a three-match suspension.
Angel di Maria has overcome the slight thigh injury he suffered in the 2-2 draw against West Brom, but it looks unlikely that midfielder Michael Carrick will feature this weekend as he has been released to the Under-21 squad for their game at West Ham on Friday night.
Defenders Jonny Evans (foot) and Paddy McNair (hamstring), as well as midfielders Jesse Lingard (knee) and Antonio Valencia (hamstring) are out.
Provisional Man Utd squad: De Gea, Lindegaard, Amos, Johnstone, Rafael, Shaw, Rojo, Blackett, Thorpe, Smalling, Jones, Pereira, Blind, Fletcher, Fellaini, Anderson, Carrick, Young, Herrera, Mata, Januzaj, Di Maria, Falcao, Van Persie, W Keane.
