"Pochettino's threat to leave Tottenham if they win the Champions League is a real one and Levy should be taking it very seriously", said Anderton.

The Argentinian also joked that Perez had offered to let him stay if he ever chose to coach the Spanish giants.

In whatever tone Pochettino's comments were meant to be received, Real Madrid have taken a dim view and on Friday issued a strongly-worded statement.

"All requests submitted to Real Madrid have referred only and exclusively to the use of the training camps of the Ciudad Real Madrid and its changing rooms".

"Real Madrid want to underline also that the accommodation for the Champions League finalists is assigned by UEFA following criteria of organisation and security, and in no moment was our club asked by these teams if they could stay at the Ciudad Real Madrid residence".

Thus, Liverpool plan to train at our facilities on Saturday, June 1 in the morning.

Their opponents Liverpool, who are now training in Marbella, are set to train in Madrid on Saturday morning, 1st June.

Tottenham have been told they must meet Marco Asensio's mammoth buy-out clause if they are to sign the Real Madrid star.

It was a great year with 97 points in the league, but unfortunately, we didn't end as champions, so that's why we want to finish this season with a trophy.
It can happen once [against Roma last year] but it should never happen in back-to-back years, not when you have the chance to be in a European final.

Messi was clear that under-fire Valverde, who has already been backed by president Josep Maria Bartomeu, should remain in his post despite a second successive humiliation in Europe.

Despite winning 97 points in a season that only saw the club lose on one occasion, City pipped them to the title with a one-point advantage, which saw Liverpool break numerous records for having one of the most successful seasons without winning the title in Premier League history.

Klopp has also taken Liverpool to the Europa League final and League Cup final in 2016 where the Merseyside club suffered defeats to Sevilla and Manchester City respectively. "However, no bet would've chosen Tottenham in the final".
