TOP STORY: Man United bombard Real with bids

Manchester United have been one of the prime movers in this year's summer transfer window as Louis van Gaal splashes the cash from the "massive war chest" that the United board have given him.

How the Bundesliga ended up with 18 teams and why it won't change soon

Christian Heidel's push for Bundesliga expansion would bring in more money but at a price to the league.

Ever since the Premier League announced its monster new television deal in February, the Bundesliga is talking about money. To be exact: about how to generate more of it. Christian Heidel, the business manager at Mainz, has used this debate to re-introduce an idea that has been making the rounds for more than ten years: the prospect of adding two more teams to the Bundesliga.

Ashley Young shows Angel Di Maria how to fight for Manchester United

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says 2015-16 is a pivotal campaign for Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.

The tattoo on Ashley Young's arm -- "If it's not worth fighting for, it's not worth having" -- neatly summarises his and Angel Di Maria's attitude toward playing for Manchester United.

Young and Di Maria have both seen their Old Trafford careers come under threat but while one has chosen to fight the challenge head on, the other appeared to give up, suggesting the chance to become the latest iconic No. 7 was not worth the bother.

Unforgivably, PSG-bound Di Maria failed to join up with his United...

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel says Louis van Gaal's men should sustain a title challenge this season.

Louis van Gaal has spent big money at Manchester United and after finishing fourth, it's time for him to mount a serious title challenge. Here's a look at what to expect from United as we approach the new campaign ...


After finishing seventh under David Moyes, United have spent around £300 million since Louis van Gaal took over. Fourth was the bare minimum last season and after another summer of spending, Van Gaal needs to justify the huge outlay. He will also have to negotiate the...

Real Madrid will use Audi Cup to give young attackers chance to shine

ESPN FC's Dan Thomas and Paul Mariner discuss the Audi Cup tomorrow and what the teams will offer with leagues starting up so soon.

Real Madrid's long and winding preseason is drawing to a close with a European leg taking in matches against Tottenham, Milan or Bayern Munich and, finally, Valerenga. The expedition to Australia and China reaped resounding wins over Manchester City and Inter, as well as two goalless and soulless draws against Roma and Milan. Seven goals were scored by seven different players and new goalkeeper Kiko Casilla has settled in well, providing Rafa Benitez with a viable option between the sticks.


Premier League fantasy football: New names to consider for your squad

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson presents the best fantasy Premier League signings for the upcoming 2015-16 season, placing high importance on Petr Cech, Raheem Sterling and Georginio Wijnaldum.

Every new Premier League season brings with it an influx of some of the planet's finest talent.

The world is a smaller place these days, but talk of foreign arrivals still manages to seem more exotic and exciting than the news that your club has just acquired the services of a homegrown player who's been banging them in for Accrington Stanley.

The truth is that however talented the international player might be, it's still going to take him time to adapt to the unique demands of the English game.
