- Real Madrid managed to get an sloppy draw against Olympique Lyonnais this Wednesday night. Morata and Casemiro scored Real's two goals after Lyon managed to get a 2-0 lead. If you didn't watch the game, Chris got it covered for you.
- The club officially announced Jesé's new contract. This deal will be extremely valuable for Real Madrid as Jesé is the most promising prospect in the club. He then tweeted the following:
Muy feliz por renovar y jugar en el mejor equipo del mundo!!! Daré todo por este escudo saludos!!— JeseRodriguez10 (@JeseRodriguez10) July 24, 2013
- According to 'As', Real Madrid has also renewed Cheryshev's contract after the player impressed Carlo Ancelotti these ten days of the preseason. Both him and Jesé were ending their contracts in 2014. Cheryshev has been used as a left back so far. UPDATE: The club released the statement about Cheryshev's renewal as well.
- The club sent a message to support the Galician families that could be involved in the train wreck outside Santiago de Compostela.
- Asier Illarramendi had to leave the match against Olympique Lyonnais because of his muscle strain. This is a minor injury, so he should be fine in the short-term, but he might be cautious and miss the match against PSG.
