Is La Masia losing its power?

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.

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...

Montoya exit another example of disturbing trend at Barcelona

The ESPN FC panel discuss the recent reports that Paul Pogba may be on his way to Camp Nou, and what implication this move would have.

It isn't controversial to say that Martin Montoya's departure from Barcelona for Internazionale last Friday passed with minimal fuss.

The shadow of Dani Alves has blocked the younger right-back's path to the Blaugrana first 11 for a couple of years now, and when a reunion with his old Barca B boss Luis Enrique still wasn't enough to push him up the club's pecking order, it felt like the final nail in the player's coffin had been hammered home.

Montoya's tale is a cautionary but familiar one,...

TOP STORIES: Barcelona's Munir to join Arsenal over Chelsea?

If there's one thing Arsene Wenger likes, it's a bargain. After splashing out £11 million on 33-year-old goalkeeper Petr Cech already, the Frenchman is probably a little dizzy and needing to sit down.

However, he still wants to reinforce...

Steven Gerrard treats L.A. Galaxy fans to free beer before grand unveiling

Steven Gerrard is introduced to the fans at the break.

As you're no doubt aware, Steven Gerrard was officially unveiled as an L.A. Galaxy player during the interval of his new side's 4-0 thrashing of Toronto FC on Saturday.

However, unable to wow the Galaxy faithful on the pitch for another two weeks while he waits to make his debut, Gerrard embarked on an altogether different, more direct charm offensive before his halftime introduction.

Indeed, Gerrard treated each of the three main Galaxy supporters' groups to a mountain of complimentary beer before...
