Managing Madrid brings you the two biggest news of the day so far. According to Marca (careful there), Pepe and Xabi Alonso will miss the game against Manchester United. The Spanish tabloid reported that Mourinho realized Pepe isn't 100% ready, so he will line up Varane instead.
Xabi Alonso remains questionable after missing Spain's friendly match against Uruguay and Real Madrid's 4-1 win over Sevilla. He will be a game-time decision.
