Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has admitted that he and his coaching staff being careful with Cristiano Ronaldo, despite insisting that his knee injury is "forgotten".

Ronaldo has not played in either of Madrid's pre-season friendly games against Inter Milan and Roma in the USA, as a result of the knee injury he picked up towards the end of last season.

We have to be careful. He is taking things very carefully, but the problem is forgotten.

He is training well by himself and today he did a double training session. We are going to see over the next few days whether he can play against Manchester United.

Levante boss in dark over Keylor Navas future

Levante coach Jose Luis Mendilibar says he is in the dark regarding the future of coveted Costa Rica goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

Navas has been linked with a €10m move to Real Madrid following his impressive form at the World Cup but no move has been confirmed.

Mendilibar told pro-Real paper Marca: "Nobody has told me anything about Keylor. He's still ours.

"I don't know him personally, but they tell me he's a great professional… It's close to the date for his return and I only hope that things are resolved before then."

Rumour: James Rodriguez flies to Madrid - to finalise Real Madrid move?

Someone snapped World Cup star James Rodriguez apparently getting on a flight from Medellin in his native Colombia to Madrid (see Tweet below).

What can it mean!? It means Real Madrid could play with a front four of Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo, Golden Boot James and Karim Benzema next season.

Sound a tad cavalier? Well, they would be protected in midfield by World Cup winners Toni Kroos (a new signing of course) and Sami Khedira. Not too shabby.
