Man United's defensive target shifts from Gerard Pique to Ezequiel Garay

Ezequiel Garay, a World Cup runner-up with Argentina, is a major coup for Zenit.
Could Ezequiel Garay be shopping for new red shirts just six months after joining Zenit?

There's a big Saturday of football ahead. Start if off right with a healthy breakfast of the latest batch of transfer-related rumours from around the world!

Garay of hope for Man United's defence

We're two months into the season and Louis van Gaal is still searching for answers in defence. With centre-backs Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling all less than impressive, the Dutch master has turned to Argentina's Ezequiel Garay to shore up Manchester United's back line.

New chapter added to Van Gaal's fluid football vs. Mourinho's pragmatism

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho says his team are prepared to play Manchester United this weekend.

Louis van Gaal had only been Barcelona manager for a few months and, although he already knew the young Jose Mourinho offered much more than just being a translator, he hadn't realised just how much. That would come, but thanks to an unlikely source.

It was September 1997 and the Catalans were preparing for a Champions League away match with Newcastle United. Before the game, Van Gaal's then assistant, Gerard van der Lem, had been discussing the English side's attack, and was rather dismissive....

Relationship between managers won't matter in Man United vs. Chelsea

Huge game this weekend in the Barclays Premier League, as the past greats of English football, Manchester United, take on the champions-elect, Chelsea. Ian Fiveankles explains EXACTLY what happens in this match, so you don't even have to watch it.

A meeting with Manchester United is always a grand occasion yet Chelsea's visit to Old Trafford on Sunday has an extra degree of grandeur due to the men at the helm of their respective clubs.

Jose Mourinho may well be master of all he surveys in the football world though he owes much of what he has become to the tutelage of Louis van Gaal. The pair spent three years as close colleagues at Barcelona in Mourinho's formative years and the Portuguese has only always spoken in glowing terms of his Dutch...

Result needed for Pardew's Newcastle against weary Spurs

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew noted after the 1-0 win over Leicester City how vital the victory was.

After Newcastle's first win of the season last week, beleaguered manager Alan Pardew admitted that there was a long way to go for his struggling football team.

"This isn't going to be the be all and end all for us, beating Leicester. We need to beat some top teams," he said in the postmatch news conference. They have a chance to do just that when they head to White Hart Lane to face off against Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham on Sunday.

The fixture will be Tottenham's fifth home game of the...

Exclusive interview: Gerard Pique on El Clasico, Luis Suarez and Barcelona

Alison Bender explains It's all about Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi ahead of Real Madrid and Barcelona's clash in El Clasico.

Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon d'Or in January, and since then his form has only gone even further off the scale. Thus he's currently the world's No. 1 player by a still greater distance.

Just as a matter of interest, his record in Clasicos is: played 21, won five, drawn six ... lost 10.

His former Manchester United teammate, Gerard Pique, on the other hand, can boast a ridiculously good stat. Since returning to Barcelona, the 27-year-old World Cup-winning defender has lost only four of his...

Real Madrid took the lead over Barcelona at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium after 16 minutes when star forward Cristiano Ronaldo dribbled past two defenders and passed to French forward Karim Benzema,...
