Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez lays down roots in Madrid

El diario El Mundo reveló la nueva residencia del mexicano en Madrid
On-loan striker Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez is renting this exclusive home in Madrid.

To prove his case that he will be more than a 'super-sub' for Real Madrid, striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, on a season-long loan from Manchester United, has laid down roots in Madrid's pricey Alcobedas district, renting a four-bedroom home worth a reported 7,000 euros ($9,000) per month in the exclusive area known as La Moraleja.

The 500-square meter home includes a gym,...

Power Rankings: Clasico win moves Real Madrid into first place

ESPN FC's Spain correspondent Sid Lowe agrees that Real Madrid's two-goal victory over Barcelona was one of their best performances in El Clasico to date.

It's all change at the top after a big weekend in Spain, while in-form but unfancied sides from Germany and England also make new entries.

1. Real Madrid (+3)

Carlo Ancelotti's men were dominant in the Clasico and made a mockery of certain people -- mentioning no names! -- who predicted Barcelona would win ... Madrid still trail their great rivals in La Liga but, if they maintain their current form, that may change very soon.

2. Bayern Munich (-1)

Days after shellacking Roma, Bayern came back to...

Raphael Varane's towering headers lead Real Madrid in Copa del Rey

The FC team debate whether or not Isco will remain in the starting XI once Gareth Bale returns from injury.

Real Madrid began their defence of the Copa del Rey, the first trophy Carlo Ancelotti won as Blancos boss, in somewhat of a no-win situation at third-tier Cornella on Wednesday night. Regardless, they came through the first-leg tie getting the job done with an eventually comfortable 4-1 victory.

Seven changes were understandably made following the energy-sapping 3-1 Clasico triumph over Barcelona at the weekend but such are Madrid's deep riches that the outcome was never really in doubt. Oscar Munoz,...

Adnan Januzaj set for Ajax loan spell, Illarramendi off to A.C. Milan

The ESPN FC crew discuss Luis Suarez's Ballon d'Or shortlist snub, Mario Balotelli's future at Anfield and debate whether or not Marco Reus should leave Dortmund.
The development of academy product Adnan Januzaj under new boss Louis van Gaal will be closely watched by the United faithful.
Adnan Januzaj has had some moments with Man United this season, but he's having trouble getting on the pitch regularly and may be headed to Ajax on loan.

World-class rumour alert, the kind that makes the Transfer Talk world go round. Away we go ...

Manchester United rumours

A couple of tasty bits from the Red half of Manchester, as Louis van Gaal and United eye up possible comings and goings in the January window.

The Daily Star report that Belgian sensation Adnan Januzaj could be headed off to Ajax for a loan spell with the Dutch Eredivisie champions. The sticking point is the loan's duration. Ajax would like to keep the winger for 18 months, while...

Real Madrid can't afford complacency in Copa del Rey clash with Cornella

Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti confirms winger Gareth Bale is out of the Copa del Rey clash with Cornellà because of a gluteal leg muscle injury.

Cornella vs. Real Madrid: ahh, the romance of the cup.

Spain's oldest football competition is a chance for sides like the Catalan Segunda B outfit to have their day in the sun against a team that, under normal circumstances, they could never hope to meet. The English FA's equivalent is an annual provider of postman/school teacher/greengrocer sub-narratives that fill acres of tabloid space ahead of the FA Cup, third round. Hopefully, Ronnie Radford gets royalties every time the cup offers a good...

Ancelotti triumphs, van Gaal's progress, Dortmund disappoint, more

The ESPN FC panel discuss the player ratings following El Clasico.

You can't really call Real Madrid's clasico win a tactical victory.

That's because frankly, manager Carlo Ancelotti -- as he promised ahead of the game when he said there would be "no surprises" -- did nothing particularly fancy that night. His XI -- with Isco in for the injured Gareth Bale -- picked itself. (Or, if you're really, really cynical, you might say a man named Florentino Perez picked it.)

What Madrid did was execute and figure out a way to get a lopsided, top-heavy lineup to work against...
