The Spanish giants host Girona who added salt o their wounds in Real's poor start to the season as the Catalan side had their biggest win in their history as they were 2-1 victors.

And the France worldwide has stoked the flames of a potential transfer after admitting that contact between him and Mourinho has happened. "There were contacts [with Mourinho], but not directly".

Speaking about the type of opposition he prefers to play against, he namechecked Romelu Lukaku as one of the most hard strikers to deal with in the game.

"I feel more comfortable with fast players because I try to control the depth well, the back", the 24-year-old added.

Los Blancos have joined the race for Willian and Don Balon say Florentino Perez is desperate to beat Mourinho to the Chelsea star this summer. "For my qualities, it's what I prefer". Like Lukaku, for example. It is pure power. He is the strongest forward in the world. "I hope that it happens but the other strikers have been playing well for longer than me, I'm just starting out".
