Man Utd transfer news: Toni Kroos puts Jose Mourinho on alert as Real Madrid consider cashing in

The home side continue to push for a way back into the encounter and they went agonisingly close in the 34th minute when Mariano Diaz hit the crossbar with header.

Real Madrid have reportedly opened talks with former Chelsea and Juventus manager Antonio Conte as Julen Lopetegui's role at the European champions is looking increasingly uncertain.

Levante held on after scoring twice in the opening 13 minutes, as Jose Luis Morales and Roger Marti capitalised on mistakes by Raphael Varane. They suffered a two-goal swing as a result of the Video Assistant Referee, one against called as a penalty, and one ruled out for offside. At the start of next month, they face Inter again in Italy, Atletico Madrid and Real Betis.

Lopetegui had thrown Bale on at the interval while Benzema and Dani Ceballos were introduced on the hour.

Marco Asensio was the last player to find the net for Los Blancos, when he scored four minutes before half-time in a 1-0 home victory over Espanyol on September 20.

After making a bold team selection that included naming Bale, Toni Kroos and Benzema on the bench, another awful result here, coupled with an historically bad goalscoring streak, has him on the brink of the sack.

Trump says 'my biggest threat is the Fed'
Under Powell, the Fed has been gradually raising rates as the economy has strengthened as a way to prevent a run-up in inflation. But as a sitting member of the Fed Board, Quarles is also a voting member of the Federal Open Market Committee.

The team have struggled this season especially in attack and their goal drought did eventually come to an end with Marcelo hitting the back of the net in the second half.

Recall now that real Madrid has a four-game series without scoring in all competitions.

Wins against Levante and Plzen will mean Lopetegui is still in charge against Barcelona, but a failure to win and convince on Saturday could see next weekend's press conference given in Italian. This season they are now seventh, a point behind Madrid.

Messi was taken to a clinic for tests, but the injury couldn't have come at a worse time as Barcelona plays Inter Milan in the Champions League on Wednesday and then hosts Real Madrid in the clasico on Sunday.

Los Blancos, under coach Julen Lopetegui are now ranked fifth, having won only four of their eight La Liga games.
