Man United's Gareth Bale hopes ruined by David De Gea, Real Madrid saga

The ESPN FC team wonder if Man United may ever get Gareth Bale but it looks like that ship has sailed...

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest rumours and gossip -- even on the day after the window closes. See all the latest deals from this summer right here.

TOP STORY: Man United's Gareth Bale hopes are ruined

The summer transfer window may be over but the fallout is spreading across the footballing world. Manchester United and Real Madrid have been at war since David De Gea's failed move to the Bernabeu, and the Daily Star now reports that the collapse...

Real Madrid's squad can now be dissected with transfer window shut

Real Madrid failed to land a trademark multi-million pound signing this transfer market despite spending nearly 90 million on others.

Real Madrid's surreal end of the transfer window and the no-less surreal statements from both Los Blancos and Manchester United regarding the failed move of David De Gea to the Bernabeu may have hidden the most relevant point: the squad is complete, at least until December, and its strengths and weaknesses can now be dissected.

The most intuitive way to examine whether or not the team has enough depth and balance to fight for all competitions is the classic "Do they have two players per position?"...

Fans suffer as Socceroos' soap opera plays out ahead of World Cup qualifier

Australia head coach Ange Postecoglou sits down for an exclusive interview with ESPN FC's Jason Dasey to discuss the Socceroos upcoming World Cup qualifiers and rising star Tom Rogic.

This week's Socceroos camp has had all the markings of a soap opera. A plot twist came in the form of captain Mile Jedinak and star goalkeeper Mat Ryan withdrawing from the squad due to injury, but the real drama involved the ongoing power struggle between the governing body and the players' union.

Football Federation Australia (FFA) and Professional Footballers Australia (PFA) are bickering due to the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) expiring on June 30. This protracted row has, of course,...

Barcelona's stars will get little rest over the international break

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains Barcelona's transfer ban and their lack of depth because of that.

The all-important wins may be on the table but with only two goals scored in two games, FC Barcelona have produced their lowest-scoring opening to the La Liga season since 2008. The sharpness of mind that influences such things isn't quite there for the Catalans, and just when Luis Enrique would have ideally liked to tailor some training sessions toward improving that deficiency, the international break has hit.

Only seven first-team members will work at the club's Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper...

Saido Berahino's negative tweet toward West Brom could affect career

The ESPN FC crew discusses Saido Berahino's tweet saying he 'will never play' for Jeremy Peace, chairman of the striker's current club, West Bromwich Albion.

For a long while throughout the summer, the transfer speculation surrounding West Brom's Saido Berahino looked like it would remain just that. It was only in the final two weeks of the window that Tottenham made their move for the England under-21 forward, and things have been tumultuous ever since for the Baggies.

Ultimately, a deal couldn't be done, and Berahino still remains at the club. But it isn't as cut and dried as that, as shown in his tweet on the final hour of the transfer deadline.

Why the transfer market is a cult of promises, trickery and misdirection

The Exploding Heads run through the 10 strangest things that happened this transfer deadline day.
While transfer deadline day may have lacked a marquee signing, take a look at the more memorable moments as Manchester United's saga with David De Gea came to a solution while Southampton bolstered their defence.

The plans were in motion before the transfer window had even closed: there would be a protest outside the Emirates Stadium at 7 p.m. sharp on Tuesday. Arsenal's fans were fed up. They finished 12 points behind the Premier League champions last season. Now Arsene Wenger had gone through the entire summer and, uniquely among the top five leagues in Europe, he had not bought a single outfield player. Enough was enough. Out went the rallying cry: #wengerout.

Things were only slightly better at Manchester...
