Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly wants Real Madrid to sign AC Milan striker Andre Silva in the January transfer window. With Karim Benzema struggling for form and Gareth Bale beset by injuries, the Portuguese is said to be concerned by his side's lack of goals. Real currently sit in fourth place in La Liga, already eight points behind leaders Barcelona and face a tricky last-16 Champions League tie against Paris Saint-Germain in the New Year.
Real Madrid will this week go for their fifth trophy of 2017 when they bid to retain the FIFA Club World Cup . Zinedine Zidane's side have already won La Liga, the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and the Supercopa de Espana this year but now head out to Abu Dhabi to claim yet another piece of silverware before the year is out. A win for the Spanish and European champions would make be their third win in the competition, which would put them level with rivals Barcelona for the most ever.
West Ham host Arsenal on Wednesday night looking to build on their morale-boosting win over Chelsea at the weekend. David Moyes saw his side better the Premier League champions thanks to Marko Arnautovic's early strike, but still remain in the relegation zone on goal difference. Arsenal sealed a last-gasp draw when Olivier Giroud netted a late equaliser against Southampton, meaning they have claimed only one point out of their last six available.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
