Next Match: away to Osasuna, December 14
Speculation that Angel Di Maria wants to leave Real Madrid has increased further after the player's agent Eugenio Lopez hinted that not all was well between his client and the club's president Florentino Perez. He told radio station La Red: "Angel has a contract until 2018. A lot of clubs want him. There's an issue with the president there. But I don't want to talk about it." The Argentinian winger has been confined to the shadows of the Madrid team in recent weeks due to the sparkling form of Gareth Bale. The player has been linked with a move to Monaco in January, but Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has indicated that the club will not sell any players before the end of the season. He told a press conference: "I think he's happy. If he has a problem or isn't happy, then my office door is always open. If he does have a problem then now is not the time to bring it up. Perhaps in the summer (he may be allowed to leave the club) but not now."
