Carvalho's Real Betis host a Real Madrid team that hasn't been at its best so far this season something the man born in Angola feels is down to the absence of Ronaldo's goals.

The man who was part of Portugal's victorious Euro 16 squad said that no amount of money could make up for the absence of the five-time Ballon d'Or victor, Ronaldo.

"But now he's fine, he's good in Juventus and he'll score many goals there. Not for €200 million, no".

'He insisted on keeping Cristiano and transferring Bale, and the president did completely the opposite.

Former president of Real Madrid Ramón Calderón has spoken about the main factors behind Zinedine Zidane's decision to quit days after winning the Champions League final against Liverpool in Kiev.

"It was very interesting in the summer that Allegri went public with the news that Florentino Perez had called him to see if he would be interested in taking over from Zinedine Zidane", Horncastle told BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast.

And Calderon has claimed that Zidane wanted Ronaldo to stay and instead sell Gareth Bale, adding that the reason the Frenchman left Madrid was down to current president Perez overseeing the club's transfer activity.

Real Madrid head into Sunday's match fifth in La Liga, outside the Champions League places and ten points behind league leaders Barcelona.
