Liverpool eye Real Madrid's Denis Cheryshev; Man Utd rush De Gea deal

The ESPN FC crew weigh in on Mario Balotelli being left out of Liverpool's pre-season trip.

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to all the latest rumours and gossip. See all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Liverpool move for Denis Cheryshev

Denis Cheryshev plays for Real Madrid. Well, apparently anyway as he's hardly first-choice and spent last year on loan at Villarreal where he made 26 La Liga appearances.

The Russian winger admitted last month he was unsure over his future, saying: "I don't know where I'll be next season." And now Liverpool are...

Manchester City can fix defence without dropping Vincent Kompany

The ESPN FC crew give their opinions on who will win the Premier League this season, and while predictions vary, everyone agrees that Chelsea will be the side to beat.

The Manchester Evening News offered its readers a choice of six different centre-back combinations for the start of the season in an online poll Monday. It is perhaps a sign of the times that the sixth option might well be worth dwelling on longest after a strangely unfulfilling preseason for the club.

That sixth option involves the pairing of steady Martin Demichelis with young gun Jason Denayer and there's something to be said about it. Vincent Kompany's injury-ravaged 2014-15 season does not tell...

D.C. United and Orlando rookie Cyle Larin the big stars in MLS Week 22

Relive the top moments from around Major League Soccer in week 22 as the Wright-Phillips brothers propelled the Red Bulls, DC United triumph in a ten goal thriller and more.

D.C. United's personality throughout the 2015 season has been one of grind, grind, grind. It sounds like a slight, but United's unflashy play has served them more than well enough to put them clear of the pack and solidly in first place in the Eastern Conference.

Ben Olsen's team was built around solid defense and timely goals. No one quite knew whether this United team was good enough to clear the hurdle that tripped up last year's side, but for the time being, there was no shame in getting the...

Tottenham make early signings but still thin at midfield and forward

Will Tottenham be able to improve upon their fifth place finish? The FC guys don't think so.

Tottenham moved quickly at the start of the transfer window -- just as manager Mauricio Pochettino had hoped -- and Kevin Wimmer and Kieran Trippier were both at White Hart Lane before June 20. When Toby Alderweireld arrived in early July, it seemed Spurs really had learned the lessons of previous summers, when they had habitually started the Premier League campaign with important business still to do.

But, almost one month on, the strengthening process has slowed. Unwanted players have continued...

Diego Costa's ongoing injury issues might force Chelsea to buy

The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets about the upcoming Premier League campaign and why managers continue to be baited by Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea's pre-season results may have been less than inspiring to date, but they pale to insignificance when compared to the nagging doubts about centre-forward Diego Costa's ability to maintain match fitness.

Saturday sees the Blues begin the defence of their Premier League title with a home game against Swansea, and they may have to manage without the services of their talismanic striker, who hobbled off early in the second half of last week's friendly against Barcelona in Washington and hasn't...

Ronaldinho debuts for Fluminense and shows a glimpse of his former genius

Ronaldinho's much-anticipated debut for Fluminense passed with little fanfare but a key contribution.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- "How many today, Joao? Thirty thousand?"

"They said 40 on the radio. Fifty, even. Everyone will want to be there."

Two metro stops from the Maracana and there is an energy in the train carriage that cannot merely be put down to it being game day. The Fluminense fans are out in more force than usual ahead of the battle of the Tricolors against Gremio. Indeed, it's not just any match, for there is to be a special guest; a royal visit in footballing terms. Ronaldinho...
