Real Madrid live updates
Real Madrid rewrote the club's record books after beating Malaga 2-1 to record their 16th successive win in all competitions.
Goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale proved decisive as the European champions continued their phenomenal run of form which has seen them brush aside every opponent since going down to Atletico Madrid on September 13.
Madrid were made to sweat a bit at the end after losing former Malaga midfielder Isco to a red card before seeing Roque Santa Cruz pull a goal back in stoppage time, but they held on for a win which lifts them five points clear at the Primera Division summit.
Real Madrid are keen to keep Arsenal reported target Sami Khedira after next season, according to club coach Carlo Ancelotti.
The Germany international has yet to sign a contract extension with the European giants with his current deal ending next summer.
Khedira has been limited to just six appearances in all competition for the Merengues this season, and has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months.
"The club wants him (Khedira) to sign a contract extension," Ancelotti told Spanish radio station RNE. "We consider him a reliable player, who is serious and professional."
Germany international Christoph Kramer says it was an "enormous honour" to be linked with a move to Real Madrid, although he is keeping his options open for next season.
The 23-year-old midfielder is in the second of a two-year loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, who want to make the deal a permanent one when he is set to return to Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.
Following suggestions in a new book that Cristiano Ronaldo made offensive remarks about Lionel Messi, the Real Madrid star took to Facebook last night to deny the claims.
The Portuguese captain told his 101 million Facebook fans:
– Cristiano Ronaldo
News is circulating that I allegedly made offending remarks regarding Lionel Messi. This is absolutely false and I have assured my lawyer takes action to sue those responsible. I have the utmost respect for all my professional colleagues, and Messi is obviously no exception.
In a new book about Messi, it is claimed that Ronaldo regularly refers to Messi with offensive remarks, an allegation the Portuguese international strongly denies.
