TRIBAL TRENDS - TOP 5: Inter Milan rejected Cristiano Ronaldo; Suarez coy on Coutinho's Barcelona move; De Gea makes Real Madrid demand;

It's that time of the week again where we look back over the past seven days and check out what articles Tribal readers have fancied the most.

Overall, we've got stories from all of Europe's biggest clubs, including Real Madrid, Liverpool and Chelsea.

Unsurprisingly, Spanish legend Luiz Suarez's revelation about Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo was the most popular article amongst readers over the past seven days.

The former Barcelona star recalled to Mediaset a story about how Inter Milanrejected a chance to sign the five-time Ballon D'or winner while he was still a youngster at Sporting Lisbon.

You don't have to be Einstein to know how the Nerazzurri fans would've reacted to this news.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has assured the club's supporters that he has a perfectly good relationshipwith David Luiz.

The Brazilian has been out with a knee injury, but the emergence of Andreas Christensen has made his absence less significant.

Some have even argued the Dane's presence has made Luiz expendable at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile up north, any news connecting Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the 2018 World Cup was bound to attract Tribal readers.

This time it is Sweden team manager Lars Richt who has suggested the 36-year-old must play more to increase his chances of making it to Russia, despite him being retired from international football.

But remember: lions don't compare themselves to humans.

Ibrahimovic's teammate David De Gea has delivered a new demand to Real Madrid president Florentino Perez.

According to Diario Gol, the Spaniard will only leave Manchester United if Perez makes him the second highest paid player at the club behind Cristiano Ronaldo.

No wonder fans from both clubs flocked to this story. One club could receive arguably the best goalkeeper in the world, while the other could potentially lose their best player.

And lastly, Luis Suarez has revealed he is in the dark about any new players arriving at Barcelona.

The noise of Philippe Coutinho's departure from Liverpool just won't seem to go away.

And with January fast approaching, both sets of supporters are eager for the ongoing saga to be resolved one way or another.
