TOP STORY: Bale willing to wait for new deal

Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale is in no rush to pen a new contract at the Santiago Bernabeu, with the Mirror reporting that the Welsh wizard is prepared to wait for the best possible deal.

Chelsea fans won't let Jose Mourinho's return overshadow the game

What tactics will Manchester United use to beat Chelsea away at Stamford Bridge?
The ESPN FC crew have little faith in Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte sending their squads out to attack on Sunday.

The last time Jose Mourinho came to Stamford Bridge as the away manager, there was a telling exchange in the stands near the press box. With his Inter Milan side leading, one Chelsea supporter turned on his then-manager Carlo Ancelotti and urged him in colourful language to look along the touchline if he wanted to see what a proper football manager looked like. But if he had been hoping to strike a chord with his fellow fans, he was much mistaken. A number of Chelsea supporters turned on him and...

Mexico's competition for places heating up ahead of clash vs. U.S.

ESPN FC's Ciro Procuna delivers the inaugural edition of Mexicans abroad, with Memo Ochoa and Javier Hernandez in the spotlight.

One of the central tenets of Juan Carlos Osorio's philosophy is fostering as much competition for places as possible for a spot in the Mexican national team. And exactly three weeks out from the Nov. 11 World Cup qualifying match against the United States in Columbus, Ohio -- a location El Tri has lost 2-0 on each visit -- the Colombian will be quietly optimistic with what he has seen of late.

Players like Andres Guardado, Jonathan dos Santos and Raul Jimenez have returned from injury, while Marco...

With another hectic Liga MX weekend ahead, Nayib Moran runs through the storylines you need to know before kick-off.

This week's games to watch will take place in Monterrey, Guadalajara and Mexico City. All of the teams involved are directly immersed in the playoff hunt. Chivas-Pachuca or Tigres-Pumas could be regarded as the game of Week 14.

Arsene Wenger knows exactly what he would say upon meeting God

Arsene Wenger explains how he survives in 'the jungle' that is management.

Arsene Wenger has previously shared his thoughts about how his first conversation with God could go.

However, the Arsenal manager never had an answer if he were asked what he did during his life outside football.

But on the day before he turns 67, Wenger reflected on his life and 20-year career and revealed that he now has a pretty good idea of how he would respond.

Wenger told reporters: "I've said if God exists and one day I will go up there, he will ask me, 'Do you want to come in here?'

Real Madrid ready to test their sparking form vs. Athletic Bilbao

Real Madrid's attack is impressing ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, despite Cristiano Ronaldo's struggles early in the season.
After signing a new contract with Real Madrid, Luka Modric says it's time he finally wins La Liga with the club.

Real Madrid host Athletic Bilbao in the Bernabeu on Sunday in a match that will truly test the mettle of Zinedine Zidane's Plan B in the absence of injured key players Sergio Ramos, Casemiro and Luka Modric.

Victory at Real Betis set Zidane's side back on track in La Liga after three consecutive draws, but Gus Poyet's Betis side were more than accommodating hosts, and the Uruguayan still hasn't come to grips with his side's obvious defensive frailty, calling into question his choice to mirror...
