Lionel Messi always a target for Argentina, says Pablo Zabaleta

Lionel Messi edged out Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo to be named the UEFA Best Player in Europe for the 2014-15 season.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes share their thoughts on Lionel Messi winning the UEFA Best Player in Europe award over Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona teammate Luis Suarez.
The ESPN FC team discuss Lionel Messi's role at Barcelona and speculate as to whether or not he is being overworked by the Spanish side.

Lionel Messi is always going to be criticised when Argentina lose, says Manchester City right-back Pablo Zabaleta.

Four-time Ballon d'Or winner Messi said last month that he has no plans to let harsh media criticism from back home in Argentina affect him following the tough Copa America final loss to Chile over the summer.

The Barcelona star is training with the team in Houston in preparation for two friendlies in the United States. Argentina play Bolivia on Friday in Houston and meet Mexico four...

Man City's Eliaquim Mangala: Valencia would have been a step back

ESPN FC's Stevie Nicol thinks Manchester City's stellar start is more than just a fluke; he says manager Manuel Pellegrini's transfers this summer have all made sense.
Kevin De Bruyne has finally put pen to paper and joined Manchester City from Wolfsburg for £55m.
The ESPN FC panel takes questions from twitter concerning Manchester City's early lead in the English Premier League and Memphis Depay as Angel Di Maria's replacement at Manchester United.
Nicolas Otamendi and Eliaquim Managala will compete for a starting role in Manchester City's defence.

Eliaquim Mangala has revealed that he refused to join Valencia because leaving Manchester City would have been "a step backwards."

The Spanish club wanted to sign Mangala, 24, on loan as part of the deal that took Nicolas Otamendi to City.

But the France international had no intention of leaving the Etihad Stadium and has vowed to fight for his place with the newcomer.

"I refused because it would have been a step backwards," he told reporters. "I felt good enough to win my place."

Man City's UCL adventure comes too soon for Iheanacho and Roberts

ESPN FC's Stevie Nicol thinks Manchester City's stellar start is more than just a fluke; he says manager Manuel Pellegrini's transfers this summer have all made sense.
Kelechi Iheanacho has missed out on the City squad.

Manchester City may now be relatively free of the constraints placed upon them by their punishment under the financial fair play regulations, but -- as the club announced its Champions League squad for the group stage of this season's competition -- there actually seems to be little change in how they're setting up. Perhaps this shows how ineffectual the reduction in squad size was for the last campaign, or perhaps it's more a demonstration of astuteness on the club's part to cope.

Either way, Manuel...

As the transfer window shuts, the ESPN FC panel take a look back at Arsenal and Manchester United's inability to secure a marquee signing, Chelsea's new additions, Kevin De Bruyne joining Manchester City to bolster Manuel Pellegrini's attack and much more
Alexis Nunes sits down with ESPN FC's Paul Mariner to discuss the possible advantages of VfL Wolfsburg signing the young winger Julian Draxler from Schalke 04.

Bayern Munich backed out of an approach to sign Kevin De Bruyne from Wolfsburg before the midfielder joined Manchester City, according to the player's agent.

De Bruyne, 24, signed for City from Wolfsburg on Sunday for £54 million, bringing to an end a summer-long transfer saga.

The Belgium international's agent, Patrick De Koster, said Bayern and Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain were also keen to acquire his services.

"We had heard that Bayern had an interest," De Koster told sporza. "I then...

Kelechi Iheanacho left off Manchester City Champions League squad

Kelechi Iheanacho won't take part in Manchester City's Champions League campaign.

Manchester City have been forced to leave striker Kelechi Iheanacho out of their Champions League squad.

The 18-year-old Nigerian has not been named in the 21-man squad City submitted to - and now published by - European governing body UEFA, because it already includes the maximum 17 foreign players.

Iheanacho has been elevated to the first-team squad by manager Manuel Pellegrini this season and made a brief substitute appearance in Saturday's Barclays Premier League win over Watford.

But he will...
