James Rodriguez begins house hunting ahead of potential move to Juventus

Alejandro Moreno says that James Rodriguez's performance at Real Madrid might be due to his relationship with his manager.

TOP STORY: James house hunting in Turin

Confirmation that James Rodriguez could be set to swap Real Madrid for Juventus has come from an unlikely source. Italian estate agency Proto Group Ltd. have released a statement confirming that they are working on behalf of the Colombia international...

Ronald Koeman on track to fulfil Ross Barkley's immense potential at Everton

Ronald Koeman refuses to speak about transfer rumours, amidst talks about Joe Hart's potential loan deal.

A comeback win at West Brom and comfortable victory against Yeovil in the League Cup has Everton well set for the visit of Stoke City on Saturday as the Blues chase a first home league success under new manager Ronald Koeman.

The home side are up against a visiting team that saw the best and worst of Everton in the previous campaign. In a fashion typical of Roberto Martinez's tenure, a disjointed mess ended in 4-3 home defeat, while a thoroughly dominant away showing resulted in a 3-0 win that threatened...

Dos Santos doesn't make Mexico squad, Zaldivar a surprise inclusion

LA Galaxy and Mexico forward Giovani dos Santos opens up about his Mexico future and his relationship with head coach Juan Carlos Osorio.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio named his squad to play El Salvador and Honduras in World Cup qualifiers on Sept. 2 and Sept. 6 in El Tri's first outing since the Copa America Centenario ended in a 7-0 defeat to Chile at the quarterfinal stage.

Backbone of squad the same

This isn't a huge shake-up from Osorio. It wasn't ever likely to be, even if there were some immediate and rash calls for an overhaul after the Copa America disaster.

The team is recognizable as the core that we've seen really since...

Frank de Boer, Inter need pragmatism to compete for Champions League

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the influence of dutch football in Italy and whether Frank de Boer can work his magic at Inter.

Inter Milan's defeat against Chievo on Sunday had all the makings of a summer friendly. Having had only one exhibition game against Celtic -- the Borussia Monchengladbach tie was called off -- to prepare, manager Frank de Boer lined his men up in a 3-5-2 formation, only to be rewarded with a limp, lifeless performance, not to mention an embarrassing 2-0 defeat.

Everything seems to be going wrong at once for the Nerazzurri: the defence was a disaster, the midfield far from a cohesive unit and Mauro...

Transfer business could suffer as West Ham flame out of Europa League

The ESPN FC crew analyse West Ham's failure to reach the Europa League group stage, falling to a 2-1 aggregate defeat against Astra Giurgiu.

West Ham were dumped out of the Europa League for the second season at the final playoff stage, losing 1-0 to Rumanian side Astra Giurgiu (2-1 on aggregate), in front of a frustrated crowd at the London Stadium. The Hammers wasted a stream of chances and saw others well saved by visiting keeper Silvia Lung. But there was no doubting that, without their injured players, West Ham look a very ordinary side indeed.

With the match billed dangerously as "unfinished business" by the club, this was more...

Pochettino and Klopp are driving the Premier League's pressing revolution

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino admits he will pay extra attention to Liverpool striker Sadio Mane when the two sides meet on Saturday.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Tottenham are convinced in their style of play.
Philippe Coutinho and Harry Kane were the goalscorers last time around. Who will pen the next chapter in this matchup?

It has been 10 months since Jurgen Klopp's first outing as Liverpool boss, a goalless draw at Tottenham Hotspur. He returns to White Hart Lane this weekend in a match that will inevitably prompt comments on Liverpool's progression during his period in charge.

From the outset, it was obvious that Klopp's No. 1 priority was recreating the intense gegenpressing that became his trademark at Borussia Dortmund and made him revered across Europe. The shape would come later -- the attacking cohesion needed...
