PLAYWITHALEGENDReal Madrid transfer news Clinton Morrison says Gareth Bale could replace Eden Hazard at Chelsea

Ronaldo's spectacular effort in Real Madrid's 3-0 first leg victory in Turin in early April was immediately hailed as one of the greatest goals of all time, only for Bale to score an nearly exactly similar goal on an even bigger stage in Saturday's 3-1 victory in Kiev.

"But hopefully he will come back quickly and hopefully he can [play in] the World Cup for his national team".

Karius made a post on social media yesterday, writing: "Haven't really slept until now".

In between all that he got buried by maybe the best goal the Champions League goal ever scored, Bale again catapulting himself into the Kiev night to fire an overhead kick into the top corner from a ludicrous height and distance.

Liverpool can not compete for a title with the 24-year-old in goal and so they are reportedly looking at AS Roma's goalkeeper Alisson Becker for a "record free".

For the first he tried to roll the ball out with Karim Benzema standing too close to him and allowing the France global to divert it into the net, and he then let Gareth Bale's long-range drive slip through his grasp.

Television replays also appeared to show Ramos being pushed toward Karius by Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.

If Liverpool land Alisson, then Karius is expected to remain at the club as back-up with Simon Mignolet the man set to leave after falling out of favour under Klopp last season.

"He is the kind of player that I would have always selected first in school to have him on my team because he is an absolute leader who works with all measures", he said.

"I mean a deal as in 'look, we'll do you a favour here, but we want first option on Kane in a year or two'".

"It's even worse as we all felt that we could have beaten Real Madrid and we were in the game for a long time".

"If you go back years and you saw somebody crying on the pitch, they'd have had a whole load of stick for it".

Former Arsenal midfielder Merson believes De Gea is the world's best goalkeeper despite the Red Devils' disappointing season.
