Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster admits he's keen to avoid transfer speculation linking them with Chelsea pair Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard.

Both Blues players have been linked with Real in the Spanish press this weekend, but Schuster said last night: "These things are never good. Each person must know what he wants, good preparation or difficulties.

"There is no good club that talks about the future just two months into the new season. It is something unusual."
