Mourinho admits he could return to Real Madrid

Asensio was able to pull one back for Real on 70 minutes, but Ajax's Lasse Schone cancelled that out soon after with an incredible free kick from the left side of Madrid's area to restore their three-goal lead to secure the historic win.

Isco has only scored one goal and made one assist in 16 La Liga games this term, and he has only started five times in the Spanish top flight for Los Blancos.

If reports are to be believed, Real Madrid are set to make a stunning deal to bring a Premier League star over to the Spanish capital.

Real did have chances throughout the second half but couldn't find the killer pass or finish to get back into the game and Ajax kept plugging away.

Fellow Madrid daily AS wrote: "Madrid give up" on their front page, and also spoke of it being the end of an era for numerous club's players who appear to be beyond their best, such as Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Marcelo.

The hosts also saw Nacho sent off for a second yellow card as their rule as kings of Europe came to an ignominious end.

"They've lost to teams they'd never normally lose to".

Marco Asensio came on for teenage winger Vinicius as Madrid - already without suspended captain Sergio Ramos - looked to rescue the tie.

After all, they were already pretty much through, right?

Their only bright spark again was 18-year-old Brazilian Vinicius, although he was forced off with injury before half-time.

"It's probably the end of an era".

The night that Ajax imposed their will on Real Madrid in the Spanish capital will be remembered for a long time, not because of the painful nature of a 4-1 loss, but rather because it means saying goodbye to a team that has declined to an nearly unthinkable level when you assess the individual names on the team sheet.
