      Cristiano Ronaldo was subjected to 'insults and beatings' from Arsenal when the former Manchester United star tried tricks.

      Former Gunner Robert Pires told Record: "Cristiano made feints and the English didn't like it. It was just a beating. 

      "You can't play like that against the English and you couldn't do that at Highbury, Arsenal's home. It was just insults and beatings. 

      "At first he didn't stand it very well, it was complicated for him. Football in England is completely different.”

      According to The Athletic, a bid as little as £40million could persuade Real to sell up after talks with the player's representatives.

      Man United legend Roy Keane revealed he drank ‘six or seven’ pints the night before his Nottingham Forest debut almost thirty years ago.

      Keane said: "I went over pre-season and was obviously doing a lot of training with the reserves.

      "Forest had played their first league game at home on the Saturday against QPR and I went to watch it, and I was on the bench for the reserves on the Monday night.

      "I got on for the last ten minutes and the first-team were playing Liverpool on the Tuesday night.

      "Went out that night with the players, as you do after a reserve match, I didn't drink too much – maybe six, seven pints after the game. Came in on the Tuesday and was told 'get dressed up'."

      Maguire said: “I know everyone wants to play well and create numerous chances but teams are well drilled and organised.

      “It’s not all perfect, we can improve but you can’t argue with seven points from three games.

      “Can we play better? Of course we can. Will we improve? We will do everything we can to improve.

      "The fundamentals are there and now we’ve got to tidy up in every part of our game when we’re on the ball and there is a little bit more we can get out of each other and push each other.

      “If we are going to progress in this tournament we’re going to have to do that.”

      Former Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho assessed Harry Maguire's return to football.

      He said: "I keep saying when you have an option to take 26 players, you have to risk, gamble and take an injured player if the player deserves that. Maguire is one of those players.

      “He was confident, he was stable, he was intelligent, read the game well, and has a good partnership with [John] Stones.

      “[Tyrone] Mings is doing a fantastic job, you could feel he was happy to come in for 10 or 15 minutes, he is a team player.

      “I wouldn’t be surprised if the next game is against Germany, the way they play with three at the back – I wouldn’t be surprised if England went with Stones, Maguire and Mings at the back.”
