There is little doubt about the quality of Real's nucleus of players that last season won the league and became the first team to successfully defend the European Cup since 1990, however, and they looked as unbeatable as ever in their 2-1 win over Manchester United to win the European Super Cup.

Liverpool and other top clubs have been linked with Spanish global and Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio this summer.

Probed on how close he is to agreeing fresh terms, the 25-year-old told reporters: "It will be done soon, we're very close".

Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, has said that Neymar is "irreplaceable" for Barcelona, but admitted that his exit might not make life any easier for his team. In one year, maybe I won't be here.

There is a huge amount of promise in his ability, and Real Madrid are unlikely to want to sell him, especially to a rival, but money talks.

Liverpool have been linked with two wingers to add to their squad this summer, with Diario Gol claiming an offer has been submitted for Real Madrid's Marco Asensio, while Transfermarketweb reports Diego Laxalt of Genoa is also a target. "I'm happy for working so well with my staff".

Tobacco stocks crushed as FDA targets nicotine in cigarettes
However, the tobacco industry is already experiencing the blow on the stock market. More than 480,000 deaths occur each year in the US from smoking-related illnesses.

Zidane has also overseen a Club World Cup win and two Uefa Super Cup successes, with the most recent of those coming against Manchester United. And the objectives are always the same: trying to win every single game and every single title.

That means Ronaldo should be back in Madrid's starting lineup on Sunday, when it visits Barcelona's Camp Nou in the opening leg of the Spanish Super Cup.

Barca have added more pace to their side with the return of winger Gerard Deulofeu after stints in England and Italy although the Spaniard can not be expected to be a replacement for Neymar.

"Whoever is going to play instead of Neymar he will do it well".

"I think we have had a good preseason, but the real thing begins Sunday", Valverde said this week.
