Denis Suarez's Barcelona block could be a blessing in disguise

Bayern Munich and Germany defender Jerome Boateng addresses the moment when he slipped and fell when squaring off with Lionel Messi in the Champions League.

Denis Suarez could be forgiven for feeling let down this month.

Despite suggestions that a Europa League-winning season at Sevilla would be capped off with a dream chance to play for the team who went one better when it comes to European trophies, the youngster has just learned that he will not be making an early return to FC Barcelona.

Though he signed for Barca two years ago now, Suarez's relationship with his parent club has been a convoluted one. He joined from Manchester City on the understanding...

Paul Pogba is Barcelona's most logical signing this transfer season

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti talks Paul Pogba transfer rumours, and how the Juventus midfielder will eventually move for the right price.

Only three weeks have passed since Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez and the rest of their Barcelona teammates lifted the Champions League trophy in Berlin. Contrary to what many would believe, such a remarkable achievement has not managed to keep fans fully satisfied for even a month.

Inevitably, Culers have already shifted their focus toward finding ways to improve the current squad. Despite the Blaugranas' being banned from signing any players until January 2016, due to their breaching the rules...

Six reasons why Lionel Messi is the world's best

Bayern Munich and Germany defender Jerome Boateng addresses the moment when he slipped and fell when squaring off with Lionel Messi in the Champions League.

His impressive...

The Argentine arrived at the Camp Nou in 2000 when he was just 13 and has grown into the world's best player, perhaps the best ever. Here is how Barcelona celebrated, with a Vine of their man throughout the years.

International soccer star Lionel Messi turns 28 years old on Wednesday. Here are some notes on Messi, already one of the most accomplished soccer players in history:

-- Messi has scored 412 goals for Barcelona in 482 games, 180 more goals than any other player in Barcelona history, having broken the club record back in March 2012. Messi is 52 goals shy of doubling Cesar Rodriguez's previous club record. The argentine holds career scoring records in La Liga (286), UEFA Champions League (77) and...

Defensive forwards a common trait among Europe's elite

ESPN FC's Mark Donaldson and Steve Nicol assess Man City's potential transfer targets and predict which ones will end up at the Etihad.

Ask an Arsenal supporter about their memories of the "Invincibles" season of 2003-04, and they'll probably mention Thierry Henry's goal return, Dennis Bergkamp's creative genius or Robert Pires' tricky wing play. But one of the most exhilarating parts of Arsenal's play was, somewhat surprisingly, when their star man conceded possession.

Henry's poor touches were few and far between, but when a misplaced pass went to an opponent rather than a teammate, the Frenchman made it his own personal mission...
