Football rumours: Real trouble - Bale to leave Madrid for Manchester United? Ronaldo or Benitez ultimatum? Chelsea chasing Southampton star Mane?

It was a bad weekend for Real Madrid, with a chastening defeat by bitter rivals Barcelona and rumours of departures.

Gareth Bale is said to be a Manchester United target once more, as reported by The Sun.

But worse still, Cristiano Ronaldo was said to be ‘furious’ after the 4-0 humiliation at the hands of Barcelona, and the Daily Telegraph say that the 30-year-old has issued an ultimatum to the club - either manager Rafael Benitez goes, or I will.

In the Premier League, The Mirror report that Chelsea have joined Manchester United in pursuit of Southampton star Sadio Mane.

Meanwhile in the Championship, David Moyes has said he would like to take the Leeds job should new owners come in at Elland Road - again reported by The Mirror.

And The Guardian suggest that West Ham’s Manuel Lanzini is’honoured’ to be linked with a move to Liverpool.
