Players Real Madrid Have To Buy After Atletico Madrid Super Cup Defeat

Players Real Madrid Have To Buy After Atletico Madrid Super Cup Defeat

However, a Cristiano Ronaldo-less Real side hit back when Gareth Bale teed up Karim Benzema to equalise shortly before half-time.

The long-serving defender was questioning comments from former team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo, insisting that the dressing room at the Santiago Bernabeu is "a family".

A name linked with a host of top European clubs throughout the summer, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic was not signed by any English clubs last week, so it's now Real Madrid's job to try and get the signature of the world class global, as the 23-year-old would surely relish a move to the Spanish capital.

But Ramos questioned those comments.

The defeat to their neighbours in the Super Cup clash has exposed the team in the attack.

"We can not talk about Cristiano to cover things up, because any team would miss Cristiano".

"It's true they have won a lot but we have to focus on the season without thinking about what has happened in the last few years", added Lopetegui.

"A Ronaldo replacement? That is the decision of the president, not us".

But the coach said he was certain the team were still full of hunger to win silverware.

Lopetegui is the first Real Madrid manager to concede four or more goals in his first competitive game in charge since Michael Keeping against Celta Vigo in February 1948.

The Daily Star claim Los Blancos are looking to reinforce their defence and have identified Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso as potential target.

Juventus are hot favourites to defend their title and start the new campaign against Chievo Verona on August 18 at the Stadio Bentegodi.
