Relaxed FFP rules fair to City?

Manchester City

Is La Masia losing its power?

Relaxed FFP rules leaving Man City fans smarting

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Tommy Smyth talk Manchester City's continued interest in Fabian Delph.

There aren't many industries in the world where a business's profits and losses are dealt with like they are with football clubs and Financial Fair Play Regulations (FFPR). In any other line of work, what the company can spend is largely dependent on the money they have made and the projections of what funds will be coming in over the next few years. And, of course, the owner can invest whatever they like in order to make it grow.

Which makes football bizarre. Certain losses don't count -- such...

Liverpool have plenty to prove after nightmare 2014-15 campaign

The ESPN FC crew answer your questions regarding whether Christian Benteke will move to Liverpool and who will score in the Women's World Cup final.

Liverpool return to preseason training on Monday, anxious to put last year's disappointing campaign behind them. Few emerged from the wreckage of the 2014-15 season with their reputations intact, but some have more to prove than others this coming year. There have been changes over the summer on the playing and coaching side of things, but manager Brendan Rodgers remains in place and heads the list of those with much to prove this year.

The manager is undoubtedly the man under...

Improved Pastore must maintain consistency for PSG in 2015-16

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti gives his read on the likelihood that Manchester United's Angel Di Maria joins PSG this summer.

Argentina's 4-1 penalty defeat to Chile in Santiago in this summer's Copa America final means that La Albiceleste's 22-year wait for international success continues.

The South American nation have now lost six finals -- including last summer's FIFA World Cup in Brazil -- in that time and Gerardo Martino and his players must now try to regroup from yet another heartbreak.

Despite the painful nature of their penalty loss to host Chile, there are a number of positives that Argentina can take...

Montoya's arrival another piece to the Inter Milan puzzle

With Martin Montoya set to join Inter Milan, ESPNFC's Janusz Michallik assesses whether their summer transfers can propel them back into the UCL.

Martin Montoya is the latest addition to the Inter squad following the arrival of Geoffrey Kondogbia, Joao Miranda and Jeison Murillo. The Inter rebuild is certainly taking shape and the signing of the Barcelona full-back will certainly reinforce a weak area for the Nerazzurri. The squad is now taking shape under manager Roberto Mancini and there will be more additions to come. While fans can feel optimistic about the upcoming season, there perhaps should also be a little bit of caution too.

Stephen Keshi exits as Nigeria manager after a tumultuous reign

Stephen Keshi's tumultuous time as Nigeria manager appears, finally, to be over.

Stephen Keshi's on-today-off-tomorrow relationship with the Nigeria Football Federation has finally been severed. 

A meeting of the NFF executive committee, which ended around 10 p.m. Saturday, resolved to terminate Keshi's contract after it concluded that an application was sent on his behalf to the Ivory Coast football federation seeking to replace Herve Renard. 

The report, a copy of which was viewed by ESPN FC, contained Keshi's CV and cover letter, both of which were obtained from...

Rapper Drake shows Didier Drogba how it's done!

Didier Drogba has been able to list Drake as one of his bestest celebrity chums for a number of years now, with the Canadian rapper attending several Chelsea games in that time as a guest of the former Blues striker.

Sadly, the burgeoning friendship may now be on the rocks after Drake comprehensively destroyed Drogba's footballing credibility by scoring a penalty against him during a backyard kick-about on Saturday.

As he begins his run-up, Drake announces: "Didier I'm your biggest fan ... sorry...
