Real Madrid Update: Ancelotti Not Signing Yet, Morata Shines With Spain U-21

A new week starts and Real Madrid has not found a coach yet. Meanwhile, Arbeloa, Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas helped Spain earning a comfortable 2-1 win against Uruguay. Luis Suárez scored a brilliant free-kick goal. Morata will play in the U-21 Eurocup Final this next Tuesday trying to win the top scorer award.

Carlo Ancelotti Update

This must be tiring. What seemed to be a matter of a few hours is three days after the same exact thing. PSG wants to find a replacement for Carlo Ancelotti and Florentino Pérez simply doesn't care at all. If the coach signs on August 31st, that'd be good enough for Florentino, it seems. Then, Real Madrid will complain about the lack of a correct preseason like we heard about Luka Modric. I really expect Ancelotti to be Real Madrid's coach this week, but Florentino Pérez and his patience could prove me wrong.

Spain Beats Uruguay 2-1

Iker Casillas started the game and so did Ramos and Arbeloa. Casillas didn't have to save a single shot by the Uruguayans thanks to the brilliant work by Arbeloa and Ramos. The Spanish right back didn't let Uruguay have a single counterattack with his good pressing effort. Ramos didn't have a lot of work neither but fought all night long against Cavani and Suárez in the air and succeeded. Edinson Cavani just couldn't touch the ball throughout the whole game. Casillas picked up the ball from his net after this incredible goal by Luis Suárez in the 88th minute:

Morata Is The Current Top Scorer In the U-21 Eurocup

Real Madrid canterano Álvaro Morata has scored four goals in four games with Spain's U-21 National Team. He hasn't earnt a place in the starting lineup though, and he will probably start this Tuesday's Final against Italy on the bench. Morata is fighting to earn a spot in 2013-2014's Real Madrid.

Isco Could Be the MVP

Málaga's Attacking Midfielder Isco Alarcón is outplaying everyone in the U-21 Eurocup. It might be good for Real Madrid to buy him, after all. He's just dominating and it seems that he's playing against 10-year old kids. Florentino Pérez and Zidane are reportedly interested in bringing Isco to Real Madrid, but so is Manchester City. Florentino will keep calm and wait until August 31st, as always.
