"Sometimes Cristiano and me have disagreements" — Ramos

As such, amid suggestions of a growing Spanish presence in the dressing room leaving Ronaldo feeling marginalised and claims that he and Ramos are no longer seeing eye-to-eye, Ramos has sought to rubbish talk of a feud.

His return currently stands at 417 efforts in 410 outings, with the promise of more to come while working under a contract until 2021.

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane (pix) warned Cristiano Ronaldo's critics not to write-off the Portuguese, who is expected to pick up his fifth Ballon d'Or this week.

Real may be missing Morata as on Saturday, for the third time this season, they failed to find the target in a 0-0 draw at Athletic Bilbao. We both have a lot of character, and different opinions, but we are rowing in the same direction. There has always been a great friendship between us.

Atletico Madrid took advantage of Barca's stumble as Antoine Griezmann's winner against his former club two minutes from time earned a hard-fought 2-1 win over Real Sociedad to move to within six points of the leaders. "We must remain calm because, even if we did not have a great start to the season, we can still fight for every title".

It's reported that two of the club's biggest players, Cristiano Ronaldo and Sergio Ramos, fell out following that defeat.

Luiz, now 30, had a bust-up with Antonio Conte after he questioned the Italian's tactics during the 3-0 Champions League loss to AS Roma.

Those results opened the door for Valencia, who visited Getafe on Sunday afternoon, but on a dry and bumpy pitch and in the face of some determined defending, the side second in the table were unable to break down a rival ttat played with 10 men after just 25 minutes after Mauroo Arambari was shown his second yellow card.
