Ronaldo inspires Portugal past Algeria

Ronaldo inspires Portugal past Algeria

Luka Modric last weekend became the latest squad member to appear to suggest Neymar would be coming to Madrid in the future, following club captain Sergio Ramos, Casemiro and Marcelo all saying in recent months that they would all welcome the former Barcelona star with open arms.

Also, Cristiano Ronaldo is expected to see the pitch in this one, potentially starting and playing an hour or less.

According to reports, Ronaldo is said to have "various dissatisfactions" with Real - including his wage packet which is said to be lower than Lionel Messi and Neymar's.

The Paris Saint-Germain winger, who is reportedly attracting interest from newly-promoted Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, netted either side of half-time to give Portugal a timely confidence boost eight days out from their opening Group B clash against Spain. The best players in the world should play in Real Madrid. Portuguese newspaper A Bola had reported that the forward wanted to leave the club as he was not happy with how he had been treated by Real.

The developer preview of iOS 12 is available now and a public beta programme will be available to iOS users later this month. Along with these new third-party apps, Apple has also introduced four new apps: Home , News, Stocks , and Voice Memos .

Similar reports of Ronaldo leaving Real had emerged previous year as well after the Spanish club beat Juventus 4-1 in the final. "Cristiano wants to return to Manchester United alongside Mourinho". Although sources in his camp have since told ESPN FC that agreeing an improved new contract to stay at the club remains another possible resolution of the situation.

Mourinho isn't looking for top-class competition for Romelu Lukaku and Ronaldo would likely join the club as a central striker, so doesn't fit the billing.

Deals for Fred and Diogo Dalot have already been secured, with Mourinho envisaging Bale as the ideal fit for United's problem at right wing.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo set up one goal and had another disallowed against Algeria on Friday. It might be a mistake to let go of Pogba, who has far more long-term potential, before we develop a system that allows attacking individuals to flourish.
