Liverpool's next generation under threat as Real plot transfer swoop

Spain's under-18 captain, Pedro Chirivella, represents Liverpool's future at the heart of midfield. But now Real Madrid have come knocking...

With just over a month to go until the transfer window opens, the chatter and gossip continues. Today's Transfer Talk awaits...

Real after Liverpool wunderkind?

Times are tough at Liverpool, with the loss of the inimitable Luis Suarez being keenly felt at Anfield as Daniel Sturridge's thighs are shot and Brendan Rodgers' defence struggle to remember what they are paid to do.

It's not about to get any easier for the beleaguered coach to build a new generation, however, as the Daily Mail reports...

Plenty for Ancelotti to consider as Real prep for Basel

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno believes Carlo Ancelotti needs to focus on the bigger picture for Real Madrid rather than have Cristiano Ronaldo chase a goal-scoring record.

Real Madrid travel to Basel on Wednesday as one of the six sides already qualified for the knockout stages of this season's Champions League. The defending champions have little at stake in the St Jakob Stadium -- avoiding defeat by four goals or more will secure top place in Group B for Carlo Ancelotti's side -- while Basel have it all to play for. If the home side is victorious, and Liverpool fail to beat Ludogorets, the Swiss league champions will qualify themselves.

On current form, the...

Five accomplishments and five challenges ahead for Real Madrid

After securing yet another win in La Liga, this time over Eibar, Carlo Ancelotti wants his Real Madrid team to carry on their rich vein of form.

Right now, Real Madrid look like the cream of the elite. League leaders in Spain, breaking records left, right and centre and prime candidates to become the first team to retain the Champions League. They're perhaps even in a group of only three, at best four, sides -- with Bayern, Chelsea and perhaps Barcelona -- capable of lifting that famous trophy next June in Berlin.

But they ran out of gas domestically last season, right at the crucial point of La Liga, and there have always, always been...

Carlo Ancelotti's new contract a necessity for roller-coaster Real Madrid

After securing yet another win in La Liga, this time over Eibar, Carlo Ancelotti wants his Real Madrid team to carry on their rich vein of form.

When Sergio Ramos headed in a dramatic late leveller in the final of the 2013-14 Champions League against Atletico Madrid, he wheeled away in celebration, swiftly followed by his ecstatic teammates. Real coach Carlo Ancelotti, however, remained calm.

The club's coaching staff, led by the mercurial Zinedine Zidane, could not get off the bench and onto the pitch quick enough to celebrate. Ancelotti remained relatively static: A look down, a fist pump and another chew of his gum showed the job was not...

Player Ratings: Kroos sets table for Real romp in Eibar

Real Madrid were rarely threatened in their first ever league visit to Eibar's quaint Ipurua Stadium.
Real Madrid were rarely threatened in their first ever league visit to Eibar's quaint Ipurua Stadium.

Eibar had waited 74 years for the chance to host Real Madrid and while the eventual 4-0 outcome was rarely in doubt, the side with the smallest budget in La Liga -- roughly equivalent to a year's wages for Cristiano Ronaldo -- once again proved that they have sufficient mettle to expect a second season in the top flight.

Going toe-to-toe with Real Madrid was admirable, and true to the ethos that Gaizka Garitano has instilled at Eibar. But the gulf in class proved too much for the home side,...

Ancelotti does 'The Ronaldo' goal celebration

As the old adage goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and given Cristiano Ronaldo's white hot form for Real Madrid so far this season, it's fair to say that manager Carlo Ancelotti has every reason to butter up his main man.

After Ronaldo put Real 2-0 over Eibar on Saturday evening (his 19th goal of the campaign...in November!) -- the Portuguese superstar celebrated in customary fashion, only for his coach to follow suit on the touchline with his very own diet version.
