Almeria's Negredo blocked from facing Real Madrid

Alvaro Negredo will be missing for Almeria in this weekend's big match against Real Madrid.

The former Castilla striker is ineligible to face his former club thanks to a clause included in his transfer to Almeria over the summer.

Negredo is on a five-year deal at Almeria, but can be re-signed by Real inside the next two seasons, which also prevents him from facing the Madrid giants during that period.
