Real Madrid

 By Rob Train

Real Madrid must win convincingly in order to avoid another 'crisis'

The ESPN FC team cast their votes for FIFA president, discuss who will win the UEFA Champions League and reveal the team they would most like to play for in the MLS.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Cristiano Ronaldo's two-game ban for kicking an opponent.

It doesn't take much to whip up a crisis at Real Madrid, even if they are predominantly created by the more hysterical sections of the pro-Bernabeu media.

At the outset of the current season, a 4-2 loss at Anoeta and subsequent defeat at the hands of Atletico had headline writers locking the caps button in barely disguised horror: with three matches of the Liga campaign played, Carlo Ancelotti's side sat in 13th place with three points from a possible nine. Catastrophe was written large on the front...

David Moyes is like Jose Mourinho, says Real Sociedad's Esteban Granero

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno talks David Moyes' chances of upsetting a Real Madrid side without Cristiano Ronaldo.

Few players in football have worked under as many top managers as Esteban Granero. Still only 27, the former Real Madrid starlet has already taken tactical instructions and listened to motivational speeches from the likes of Michael Laudrup, Manuel Pellegrini, Jose Mourinho, Harry Redknapp and now David Moyes at Real Sociedad.

Granero's winding career path has already taken him through the Bernabeu youth system, a breakout spell at Getafe, three up-and-down seasons in the Madrid first team, a less...

Chelsea to test Real Madrid's resolve with audacious move for Sergio Ramos

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses the Lucas Silva move to Real Madrid, where he will serve as a defensive specialist in the centre of the park.

The winter window is now open, and that means the LIVE transfer blog swings back into action. Find out the latest news, gossip and deals here.

TOP STORY: Chelsea in talks with Ramos' agent?

Sergio Ramos is never one to back down from a confrontation, and it seems Chelsea might look to capitalise on his current contract impasse with Real Madrid.

The Daily Express reported Jose Mourinho will seek to add Ramos to his leaky back line, with the Blues inquiring with the player's agent as to whether...

Bale capable of plugging gap left by suspended Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo has received a 2-match ban for lashing out at an opponent at Cordoba on the weekend, but will be available for the Atletico Madrid clash.

It took Gareth Bale six minutes to step into Cristiano Ronaldo's boots and save Real Madrid from a surprise stalemate at struggling, albeit in-form, Cordoba at the weekend.

Carlo Ancelotti's side looked set to drop five points from a possible 12 in La Liga since the turn of the year with the clock ticking over to 88 minutes and the league leaders without talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, who had been sent for an early shower for lashing out at Cordoba defender Edimar. Madrid were frustrated, arguably...

Cristiano Ronaldo impression, as performed by Francesco Totti

Cristiano Ronaldo is so famous that even his footballing peers like to do impressions of him. The Real Madrid maestro emitted a rather odd noise when he won the FIFA Ballon d'Or earlier this month, but evidently there is someone who is keen to take the crown of "social media king" from him.

That man is Roma legend Francesco Totti who, after his selfie antics, has now taken to doing some rather funny impersonations, as noted by teammate Marco Borriello.

Illarramendi damaging his career by not leaving Real

Lucas Silva has been officially unveiled as Real Madrid's latest signing, insisting he feels he has a debt to repay to the club.

Despite all the milestones Asier Illarramendi has reached, the next five days might be the most important of his career. The Basque defensive midfielder has fallen so far out of favour at the Bernabeu that it seems impossible he will be able to turn his Real Madrid career around; at least while Carlo Ancelotti is in charge, and all signs point to the Italian staying at the club for quite some time.

The only sign Illarramendi should be taking note of at this stage of the season is the one pointing...
