TOP STORY: Neymar tells Barca teammates he is leaving

Neymar's move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain is all but a done deal, according to Le Parisien.

Alvaro Morata vs. Diego Costa: Which Chelsea striker has the edge?

The FC panel discuss the imminent arrival of Alvaro Morata to Chelsea and how he lines up with Antonio Conte's style.
The ESPN FC panel take stock of Diego Costa's latest activity on social media.

Alvaro Morata's transfer to Chelsea, for a reported fee of £58 million, surely means the end for Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge.

After Costa informed Chelsea of his interest in moving to China during their title-winning campaign last season, manager Antonio Conte informed the 28-year-old he was no longer in his plans via text this summer.

In truth, Costa's future at the club has not looked secure since he was left out of the match at Leicester after a training ground row back in January, but...

Liga MX predictions: Apertura winner, top scorer, biggest surprise

Chivas won Liguilla last season in thrilling fashion. Who will claim the title this time around?

Liga MX is back! The 2017 Apertura kicks off on Friday night as Morelia take on Monterrey and Tijuana host Cruz Azul. ESPN FC's writers preview and predict the season ahead.

Who will win the Apertura regular season?

Tom Marshall: Tigres. It's the best team in Liga MX at present and you expect the rest and preseason to mean that squad will come back rejuvenated. The loss of Guido Pizarro is significant but there is still enough time in the transfer window for them to make significant moves.

New York Red Bulls' Jesse Marsch sticking to his ideals in MLS

Jesse Marsch discusses New York's win over San Jose, the transfer window and facing Minnesota United for the first time.

While pragmatism is the default setting for in Major League Soccer, Jesse Marsch, coach of the New York Red Bulls, has been wedded to his singular philosophy through thick and thin. Marsch describes it as "transition football x100."

Broken down into layman's terms, his system involves a high and dedicated press, red-and-white shirts in opposition faces even when -- especially when -- the other side have the ball deep inside their own half.

Deployed with the requisite focus and intensity, the...

Five fixtures to watch: Degree of difficulty in Real Madrid title defence

The FC panel talk the Alvaro Morata deal from a Real Madrid standpoint.

This year's La Liga fixtures draw was even more sensational than usual, taking place amid chaos in Spanish football with long-serving RFEF president Angel Maria Villar and three other senior figures from the federation having been arrested on corruption charges this week.

There was more drama when the dates for the 2017-18 Primera Division were announced, and Real Madrid were handed what looks like a very challenging fixture list as they look to defend their title.

Here's the five key fixtures to...

Mascherano on Valverde, Neymar, the World Cup and playing in MLS

Lionel Messi, Neymar and other Barcelona stars arrive for their medicals ahead of the upcoming season.
Ernesto Valverde says Lionel Messi will continue to function in different roles with Barcelona.
We take a look at how a tour of Mexico and the United States in 1937 may just have saved F.C. Barcelona from disappearing.

PARSIPPANY, New Jersey -- Javier Mascherano is wise enough to know the benefits of visiting the United States this summer. Former Barcelona coach Luis Enrique may have preferred to avoid long trips during preseason, but Mascherano is aware of the importance of spreading the Barca brand across the globe.

Plus, as the 33-year-old tells ESPN FC, there are worse ways to prepare. During their 10-day mini-tour, Barca will take on Juventus on Saturday in New Jersey, then Manchester United four days later...
