Bernabéu Bites, 11.24.2013: Ronaldo is Fine and Probably Deserves Some Hardware

New, comments

Sunday roundup time. How 'bout that Ronaldo fellow, huh?

Following a 5-0 drubbing of lowly Almería and with the weight of the recent international break likely still in mind, the majority of the Real Madrid squad trained indoors today. Meanwhile, those that did train outdoors partook in everybody's favorite training exercise: #futvoley

Cristiano Ronaldo, one of those who trained indoors today, was substituted in yesterday's match only as a precaution.

According to a madridismo.org tweet, and reiterated only -- to the best of my knowledge-- on a blog named Spanish Football Sports, Álvaro Morata will be loaned to Tottenham in the winter transfer window.

The Guardian has a glowing review of Cristiano Ronaldo's newest heights, which really are nothing short of spectacular. It's certainly expected around places like this, but will the voting follow suit and crown Ronaldo with this year's Ballon d'Or?
