Ronaldo rested and ready for Barca in Spanish Super Cup

Real Madrid head coach Zinedine Zidane

Gracenote's computer-generated Euro Club Index is predicting that Real Madrid will finish as champions again this season, in an even closer title race.

Liverpool and other top clubs have been linked with Spanish worldwide and Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio this summer.

The range of talent in Real's squad explains why their recent transfer activities have been geared towards building for the future rather than the immediate present, bringing in 19-year-old full back Theo Hernandez from Atletico Madrid and Spain under-21 midfielder Dani Ceballos.

REAL MADRID boss Zinedine Zidane has been rewarded with a new three-year deal, according to reports.

The survey called for a further drop in interest rates - now at 6 percent after a 25 basis points cut last week. He said structural decline in inflation and inflation outlook create scope for lower interest rates .

Asensio joined Madrid from Mallorca for just £3m in 2014 and he's developed in to one of the hottest properties in Spanish football over the past three years.

Real Madrid have conducted lengthy negotiations with the playmaker and AS claim they've inserted an astronomical €700m (£647m) release clause into the Spaniard's new deal. I'm happy to be working so well with my staff.

Tottenham Hotspur were believed to be circling at the start of 2017, and Isco regularly hinted to the press that he could leave Real Madrid at the end of the 2016-17 season. We have worked well and then the goals are always the same - we want to win every game and every possible title.

That means Ronaldo should be back in Madrid's starting lineup on Sunday, when it visits Barcelona's Camp Nou in the opening leg of the Spanish Super Cup.
