10:49 AM ET 08.18 | Real Madrid coach Carlo Ancelotti has confirmed defender Fabio Coentrao has asked for a transfer. Portugal left-back Coentrao was left out of Ancelotti's squad for their La Liga opener against Real Betis on Sunday, with the Italian boss revealing 'he has asked to leave'. Coentrao has been linked with a number of Premier League teams, although he has indicated a desire to play in the Champions League, which could make life tougher for Tottenham to sign one of their targets.
