Bloodied Ronaldo Scores Twice in Real Madrid Rout

De Gea refuted suggestions he is unhappy in Manchester and praised the'special club

Real Madrid are having one of their most deceiving seasons in a long time as they are now ranked fifth in La Liga and now aren't in a position to make the Uefa Champions league next year.

However, Nacho's equaliser and a double from Gareth Bale either side of half-time set the scene for a rampant conclusion.

The Portugal worldwide left the field with blood streaming down his face after being caught by defender Fabian Schar as he dived to head home Real's sixth goal at the Bernabeu Stadium.

Real Madrid's physio rushed onto the Bernabeu pitch to treat Ronaldo, who then proceeded to ask for a mobile phone to look at the head injury.

Villarreal had temporarily taken fourth place with a 2-1 win over Levante on Saturday after beating Real at the Bernabeu for the first time ever last week.

TALKING POINT - Will the return of the BBC revive Real Madrid?

Zinedine Zidane did not feel Real Madrid's performance in a seven-goal demolition of Deportivo La Coruna was radically different to those from more underwhelming results of late. It only lasted 15 minutes or so, with Bale subbed off after Benzema had been brought on, but the spark was there for those 15 minutes. Stranger things have happened.

And according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Real Madrid want to respond to Barca's big transfer acquiring the services of Salah's former teammate Coutinho, by attempting to sign Mohamed Salah. A number of conclusions can be drawn from that, but it illustrates just how important the Welshman has become to the Spanish and European champions.

Jurgen Klopp, however, has made no mention of Bale as a potential target, nor has the Welshman made any indication of a desire to join the Reds.
