Real Madrid are made a decision to upgrade their attacking line sooner than later, and there could be a huge move getting ready ahead of what will likely be a busy summer for Los Blancos.
"Could Sanchez and Ronaldo to Man United be enough for them to nick the league off City?"
In addition to this, Ronaldo's ego was increased even more (yes it is possible) as he beat arch-rival and nemesis Lionel Messi to win his fifth Ballon d'Or title and draw level with the Argentinian. Used to being at the very top of the table in La Liga, Real Madrid is now in fourth place and 19 points behind leader Barcelona.
It was a game which should have been won, but wastefulness and an inspired performance by Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo consigned last season's league champions to a third home league defeat of the season.
Wall Street hits new highs but European stocks flat
Glenveagh Properties rose 0.7 per cent to €1.24 on a day when it announced four senior management appointments. In companies a big gainer was Blackhawk Network Holdings Inc (NASDAQ:HAWK) which rose over 23% to US$44.98.
An inability to kill off teams?
One from a little earlier in the day as Real Madrid apparently target Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi to, you know, score some goals and stuff in the absence of anyone else doing it.
But he is in the midst of his worst La Liga campaign since he arrived to the Bernabeu stadium in 2009, with his worst numbers since December 2005 when he only scored one goal for the Red Devils.
"They always tell me tomorrow, tomorrow", Mundo quote a source saying of Ronaldo's frustration, with the anger "not a matter of money, but of status".
Bangladesh, Myanmar agree to complete repatriation of Rohingyas in two years
There has been no worldwide effort to ensure the safety and welfare of Rohingya should they be repatriated to Myanmar. But the latest deal - like the one in 1992 - does not guarantee citizenship and it is unclear how many would qualify.
Madrid president Florentino Perez wants to sign a new No.9 at the end of the season due to the disappointing form of Karim Benzema this term.
There's also talk that Madrid are planning to make a move for Neymar at some point in the near future, and there's unlikely to be room on the wage bill for both at the Bernabeu.
Ronaldo is surely frustrated with how things have gone in La Liga, but he's been destroying opponents in the Champions League.
The last time Real played a league match at the Santiago Bernabeu, Barcelona won El Clasico 3-0. However, Real would love to see a fight between Paris Saint-Germain and Man United, but the situation is more complicated than simply being interested in the player.
