Real Madrid vs Melilla: how and where to watch

Reports: Real Madrid slap whopping €700m price tag on Chelsea target

Santiago Solari declared himself pleased with Isco after he was restored to the Real Madrid starting line-up and produced a fine double in their 6-1 Copa del Rey win over Melilla.

Thursday's game will be the first since Luka Modric won the 2018 Ballon d'Or, making him the first player to beat Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to it since Kaka in 2007.

Real Madrid have quietened down the whispers surrounding star midfielder Isco's exit in the January window by demanding clubs meet his release clause which stands at a whopping €700m.

Llorente gives the team a different dimension, as he offers them a platform to build play from the deep, unlike Casemiro, but he also fulfills his defensive duties in helping out his full-backs and defenders during their attacking forays.

Trump intends to nominate William Barr as next attorney general
Barr not only said that an investigation of this would be above-board, he claimed it was necessary in the interest of justice. That person said those advising the president viewed Barr as someone who knows the department well, and is a good manager.

It remains to be seen if Ballon d'Or victor Luka Modric will be rested, but Solari was full of praise for the Croatia midfielder.

Gareth Bale is also available despite being withdrawn after an hour against Valencia.

However, Solari is expected to be on top of his game, to ensure the Los Blancos improve on their fifth spot before the turn of the year. "He deserved this prize after a marvellous year with Madrid and the Croatian nation team". It seems to me that at that age it's more lovely because he can truly value it. "So, we are very happy for him".

This match will not be broadcast live on UK TV.

But Real's 4-0 first-leg win had already guaranteed a party spirit.
