MARCELO: REAL HAS LOST THE WORLD'S BEST
The world's best player is no longer in Real Madrid according to Marcelo. Ronaldo and Marcelo got a special band in Real Madrid, where they won two La Liga titles and four Champions League trophies before Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid in favor of Juventus this summer.
''Winning four Champions League trophies in five years seems normal to me, but it's not. There are some big teams who have only won two, one or none. - Cristiano is my former teammate but also my friend. Obviously, if the world's best player is no longer on your team then you will miss them. Any team would like Cristiano, but eventually Madrid will be Madrid and we have the best players in every position, says Marcelo, according to the Club del Deportista. Next task for Real Madrid will be in the World Cup for club teams where they meet Japanese Kashima in the semi-finals on Wednesday.

CHELSEA CHASE MORATA'S REPLACEMENT
According to English media, Chelsea is interested in picking up German attacker to Stamford Bridge. It is the 22-year-old Timo Werner, who, according to the media, should be in mind at Maurizio Sarri. Werner has long shown that he can perform at a high level and so it is indicated that Chelsea believes the German can replace Morata, as a front figure at the English club.
It is clear that Timo Werner could replace Álvaro Morata, who has been disappointing in the Chelsea shirt. For Moratas, it has been to five scorings in 14 Premier League matches, which has not been flashy. In this season, Timo Werner has made eight scores in 14 Bundesliga matches. The German is at the same time just 22 years old and is therefore expected to have some good years back on track.
