http://i4.mirror.co....1186133Plotting Fergie's downfall: Jose Mourinho and his Real Madrid players will train at the Etihad on Monday

Manchester City are lending Real Madrid a helping hand in their bid to knock their local rivals Manchester United out of the Champions League.

Madrid have abandoned their original plan of training at their own complex in the Spanish capital on Monday, the day before the decisive second leg of their last 16 clash with United at Old Trafford.

A baggage handlers' strike in Madrid means Jose Mourinho and his squad are flying to Manchester on Sunday - rather than on Monday afternoon as originally planned.

But they are training at City's ground rather than at United in order to preserve the playing surface at Old Trafford, which has cut up on several occasions already this season.

A Madrid source said: "The decision to train at the Etihad is in order to preserve the surface at Old Trafford so it is as good as it can possibly be for the game on Tuesday.

"It's nothing to do with keeping training secret, as it's virtually impossible to stop people watching your sessions these days, unless you train behind closed doors at your training ground.

"The decision to fly out on the Sunday was because of the planned strike in Spain. We didn't want to take any chances so brought forward our travel plans by a day."

Fair play to them. It's not like they need the facilities for their champions league campaign. In fact they are that busy with concentrating on doing the Harlem shake, they probably don't need to train at all.
