Real Madrid defence suffer as Raphael Varane 3/10, Sergio Ramos 4/10 stand out
ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer look at how Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui can turn things around after a fifth-straight game without a win. ESPN FC's Craig Burley has his say as to who should become Real Madrid's next Galactico signings. Are Real Madrid preparing to swap managers? Gab Marcotti and Sid Lowe weigh in on the reports linking Antonio Conte to the Bernabeu. Another embarrassment for Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui as his team went 2-0 down and made the second longest run without a goal (481 minutes) in their entire 116 year existence before Marcelo's late consolation. Madrid could claim some bad luck: two VAR decisions went against them, they hit the woodwork three times and had a late possible equaliser ruled out for offside. But this was a shambles of a performance, and president Florentino Perez could pull the trigger on Lopetegui even before...

Luke Shaw signs contract extension with Manchester United

MANCHESTER, England — Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has signed a contract extension that ties him to the English club until 2023 after getting back in favour with coach Jose Mourinho.

United says Shaw has the option of extending his deal by a further 12 months.

The left back, who became the world’s most expensive teenage player when he joined United for $46 million in 2014, has struggled with injury problems over the last two seasons and also has been publicly rebuked for his performances by Mourinho.

However, Shaw has been one of the few players to impress at United in its underwhelming start to this season and he recently got a call-up by England for the first time in 18 months.

Shaw says "I’m still very young with a lot more to learn and I can’t wait to continue my progress under Jose Mourinho."

Manchester United make David De Gea new contract main priority with Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw set to sign deals

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly made David De Gea’s new contract a priority.

The Standard claims Old Trafford chiefs are working frantically to tie the Spaniard down to a new deal with his current one expiring at the end of the season.

United do have an automatic one-year extension clause they can take up.

But that still wouldn’t solve the dilemma of where De Gea’s long-term future lies.

And the club believes offering the goalkeeper a lucrative, long-term contract will keep him at the Theatre of Dreams for more years to come.

However, the report adds that De Gea is now focusing on adding to his trophy cabinet, having won just one Premier League title in five years.

The Red Devils have got off to a terrible start this season and they may need to prove they are capable of challenging for major trophies in the near future before De Gea commits.

Meanwhile, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw are both close to extending their contracts.

Like De Gea, they are both free agents next summer and are highly regarded by United’s hierarchy.

It’s reckoned they’ve been offered five-year extensions, guaranteeing both of them a major pay rise.

Draxler warns Germany: Mbappe has 300 hp!

Draxler warns Germany: Mbappe has 300 hp!
Kylian Mbappe boasts "300 hp" and is almost impossible to stop if he is given space to run, Paris Saint-Germain team-mate Julian Draxler says. Germany head to Paris on Tuesday to take on world champions France in the Nations League, hoping to bounce back from last weekend's 3-0 defeat to Netherlands in Amsterdam. Mbappe helped France rescue a 2-2 draw with Iceland in a friendly match last time out, taking his tally to nine international goals in 2018 in the process. And Draxler admits Germany will need to be at their collective best to stop the explosive 19-year-old from running riot against their defence. "If he has space to get started, it's almost impossible to catch him with his 300 hp," Draxler told T-online. "His speed and his finishing [are his biggest weapons]. We must not allow him to use either, by defending very compact." 10 - Kylian MbappĂ© is the first player ever to reach the 10 goals scored for France before turning 20. NoWords. pic.twitter.com/vfy7IzZHNp — OptaJean  (@OptaJean) October 11, 2018 Mbappe has enjoyed a strong start to the domestic season, too, with eight goals in just four starts in Ligue 1. PSG are firmly on track to defend their domestic trophies and have lost only one match in all competitions under head coach Thomas Tuchel – a 3-2 Champions League reverse to Liverpool. Draxler says Tuchel's response to the team after that defeat at Anfield highlighted the demands he places on the players, but insists the former Borussia Dortmund boss has created a positive vibe in the dressing room. "He spreads a good atmosphere, inside and outside. He lets us play attractive football, he has clear ideas and he gives these to us very clearly," Draxler added. "After losing to Liverpool, he told us very clearly what had gone wrong. Not everything is 'peace, joy and pancakes' on the way to success. But that's also why he does very well and has the team on his side."
