Man United goalkeeper David de Gea is on PSG's radar ahead of a potential summer move

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al Khelaifi is reportedly due for crunch talks with star striker Neymar, in the wake of a Champions League defeat to Real Madrid that has left Los Blancos better placed than ever to land the Brazilian.

Real Madrid opened the scoring in the 34th minute when Ronaldo produce a good finish after a good ball in from Luka Modric.

Before kick-off, Atletico Madrid and Barcelona had been the only two sides to leave Eibar with all three points since the end of October and Zinedine Zidane's side struggled to get to grips with their wingers during the early exchanges.

Zidane´s own future appears more secure following Real´s triumph in Paris, which pushes the club one step closer to an unprecedented third consecutive Champions League success.

Madrid was six minutes away from dropping points when Ronaldo came through with a powerful header to send in Dani Carvajal's cross and grab victory at Eibar.

The two goals from Ronaldo make it 13 goals in his last 7 games.

"(Ronaldo) is from another galaxy", Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said.

Reporters and supporters were very curious about what happened to their captain late on in the game and Zidane didn't mind letting everybody know, in graphic detail, what had gone down.

'The numbers speak for themselves and I'm just glad he is with us.

After the intermission, and with a goal in their pocket, Real Madrid tried to slow the game's pace, but Eibar did not allow them to.

And so off he went to find a bathroom, spending minutes 73-78 off the pitch before returning to witness Cristiano Ronaldo head the winning goal.

Real skipper Sergio Ramos is said to have found out about Ronaldo's discontent and has passed his concerns onto president Florentino Perez.

"The important now is to keep picking up three points in every game".
