Julien Lopetegui has asked Monchi to try to sign his former defender, Nacho Fernandez. The manager has worked with the Spaniard both at Spain and Real Madrid and he is very keen to re unite with him once again at Sevilla.
Nacho Fernandez, 29, and Jesus Vallejo, 22, may both be forced out of Real Madrid in the summer following the arrival of Eder Militao from FC Porto. Real Madrid appear to be in the midst of a clear out with a whole host of players seemingly on their way out of the 13 times Champions League winners.
Luis Enrique announced his Spain squad for their upcoming fixtures and recalled Jordi Alba to the squad. Despite this, there have been some high profile omissions including Marcos Alonso - '90min' selected their best XI who miss out.
It is never just another match, and this next edition of the clash between Barcelona and Real Madrid presents some rather varied scenarios to consider. Will there be strange team selections? What will be the first big test for VAR? Will the outcome prove to be a guillotine or a springboard for the under-fire Lopetegui?
