Asensio comes to lethargic Madrid's rescue in late win over Leganes

Following a Spanish media report saying the majority of Real Madrid supporters want Ronaldo to leave the club, Gab Marcotti and the FC panel dive into the implications.

Real Madrid fans vote for Cristiano Ronaldo to leave in online poll

They say there is not much gratitude in football -- but even still it is startling that two thirds of Real Madrid fans want rid of the club's all-time leading goal scorer, according to an online poll conducted by Spanish paper AS.

Since moving to Madrid in 2009, Ronaldo has scored 422 goals in 418 games, helped the team to 15 major trophies including three of the last four Champions Leagues, and brought glamour to the Bernabeu with a host of individual prizes including four of the five Ballon d'Or...

Girona became the sixth club in...

Why don't Real Madrid buy the world's best players anymore?

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether time is running out for Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.

As clubs around Europe look to strengthen in the January transfer window, it has been strange to see Real Madrid happy to sit this one out, especially given the team's clear need of a shake-up.

For many years, Madrid president Florentino Perez dominated the transfer market with a determined policy to spend huge sums to ensure the world's best and most marketable players were at the Bernabeu.

However, something has changed. Even as Barcelona have added the €160 million Philippe Coutinho to...
