Real Madrid sports chief Pedja Mijatovic will hold crisis talks with coach Bernd Schuster today in London.

Stunned by Schuster's claims yesterday that he wasn't 'in the loop' over Real's transfer plans, Mijatovic will seek an explanation from the German this morning, says AS.

The Real coach is adamant he has not been kept informed of their pursuit of both Manchester United winger Cristiano Ronaldo and Hamburg's Rafael van der Vaart.
