Real Madrid, Manchester United battle for Athletic Bilbao's Aymeric Laporte

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti explains the reported move of Gabriel Paulista to Arsenal, where the 24-year-old defender would prove to be a valuable additional to the Gunners' defence.

The winter window is now open, and that means the LIVE transfer blog swings back into action. Find out the latest news, gossip and deals here.

TOP STORY: Real, United to battle for Bilbao's Laporte

Manchester United have been linked with young Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane due to his struggles for first-team football at the Bernabeu. Even though Real Madrid have one defender struggling to find time,...

Klinsmann's U.S. national team January camp his most intriguing yet

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol breaks down the top 25 most important players of the United States, where Tim Howard was left off.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses the top 25 most important player for the United States, which include a few younger players such as Julian Green.

Jurgen Klinsmann doesn't have a state of the union address to give, but if he did, he might point out that if ever there was an exception to the apparent hysteria under which January U.S. national team camps usually operate, it might be this year.

Yes, we can look at the debutante's ball feel of the January camps; for every fringe player who introduces themselves and goes on to play in Russia in 2018, there will be five destined to become trivia answers. But it would be a mistake to assume these...

The United States' 10 best players under the age of 21

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses the top 25 most important player for the United States, which include a few younger players such as Julian Green.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol breaks down the top 25 most important players of the United States, where Tim Howard was left off.
USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann comments on how younger players are meshing with the senior squad.

The end of every World Cup cycle brings about major change in the composition of the U.S. national team, and the retirement of Landon Donovan and DaMarcus Beasley means that this time around has proved no different.

For that reason, eyes will be cast on prospects beginning to emerge and, given the quest by U.S. manager Jurgen Klinsmann to find the holy grail of an attack-minded, proactive playing style, it will require contributions from some rising stars if that goal is to even come close to fruition.

Ranking the United States' top 25 players

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol breaks down the top 25 most important players of the United States, where Tim Howard was left off.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses the top 25 most important player for the United States, which include a few younger players such as Julian Green.

It's a never ending debate, in part because it's so darn subjective. Who is the United States' best soccer player right now? Ask five U.S. soccer players, coaches or fans, and you might get five different answers. We get that -- because before compiling this final ranking of the Top 25 Yanks, we sought the counsel of other close followers of the American game.

Of course, there was no consensus, which is part of what makes the subject so fun to discuss. Everyone has different criteria. Some weigh...

UAE have no answers to Australia's early surge in Asian Cup semifinal

Australia will be making their second Asian Cup final appearance, having done so in 2011 when they lost 1-0 to Japan.

It might have been another wet night in Australia during this Asian Cup but in terms of football, drama and excitement, it was very much the Newcastle calm before the Sydney storm.

Amid a subdued semifinal atmosphere, strangely so considering this is by far the biggest football tournament the country has ever hosted, the Socceroos defeated the United Arab Emirates 2-0.

Australian defender Trent Sainsbury, whose pre-match "jibes" against UAE star Omar Abdulrahman may not have been as strong as the...

Premier League rules Deloitte rich list, so why isn't the league getting better?

Manchester United have risen to second in the Deloitte Annual Football Rich List.

Two things happened on Thursday. The first was predictable. The second was more of a surprise. To some extent, both explain each other.

The one we knew was coming was the release of the annual publication of Deloitte's so-called football rich list. It was topped, for the 10th year in a row, by Real Madrid -- another decima, of sorts, for the European champions -- but the most intriguing finding was lower down: half of the richest clubs in the world are in the Premier League. All 20 of the division's...
