TRIBAL TRENDS - TOP 5: Luiz gives Chelsea an ultimatum; Yerry Mina doesn't impress Real Madrid; Why Man Utd must sign Joao Mario?;

Overall, for the past week, our Top 5 trending articles have seen Tribal readers mainly interested in Barcelona, Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Willian caused a stir last week when he revealed his displeasure at riding the Chelsea bench this season.

He told reporters after his stellar performance against Huddersfield Town: "Of course, I want to play every game - everyone wants to play every game - but only 11 can start."

When Jose Mourinho was in charge at Stamford Bridge, the Brazil international became a star. Could he reunite with the Special One at Manchester United?

A transfer headline that has kept Tribal readers coming back is that of David Luiz and his future at Chelsea.

The Daily Express claims Luiz has held crunch talks with Antonio Conte and told him that if he doesn't start playing, he wants to leave the club.

A brazen, and often-criticised defender, the Brazilian has flourished under Conte - but is his time in west London over?

Another ongoing transfer saga from across the pond seems to be intriguing the Tribal faithful.

Don Balon claims Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is happy for fierce rivals Barcelona to sign Yerry Mina.

Apparently, Perez has rejected the endorsement given by Mina's Colombia teammate, James Rodriguez, and is trusting his own scouts in their assessment that the defender isn't up to the Real standard.

Meanwhile in Catalonia, two-time World Cup winner Andreas Iniesta is delighted that Ousmane Dembele has returned to Barcelona training.

The Frenchman is returning from a serious knee injury he sustained against Getafe in September.

Iniesta posted a photo on Twitter with the caption: "Looking forward to your return to the team."

And finally, a Tribal feature piece has unsurprisingly caught the eye of Manchester United fans.

It presents a persuasive case as to why United should be aiming to sign Inter Milan midfielder Joao Mario in next month's transfer window.
