  • Cristiano Ronaldo has received a wonderful present for his 30th birthday, as a poll conducted by PA Sport has named him the best player in the Premier League's history. The former Manchester United striker was followed by Thierry Henry and Ryan Giggs.

  • As we have already reported, James Rodríguez will go through surgery this evening in Murcia, Spain, to get his foot injury healed. According to Marca, if everything goes well, our #10 will be back for the Champions League quarterfinals, around April 15th. Our very own Lucas Navarrete wrote a magnificent piece for beIN Sports USA reflecting on how good James' performance has been so far with Real Madrid.

  • Real Madrid midfielder José Rodríguez, currently loaned to Deportivo de la Coruña, spoke to Marca today confirming he is happy at Dépor and that he understands and accept that he will likely stay there next season as well, although he admits that going back to Real Madrid and continue his career as a merengue would be a dream come true.

  • As you already know, Martin Ødegaard made his debut with Real Madrid Castilla yesterday, in a friendly match against Beijing Gouan. Real Madrid have announced they will air a spectacular report about our Norwegian wonderkid this evening, at 20:00 CET, which I strongly recommend you to watch if you have the chance. The report will be accessible via the club's official website and Real Madrid TV.
