Javier Tebas predicts La Liga play overseas in near future

La Liga president Javier Tebas has very strong opinions about FIFA, Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini, and the system that he feels needs to change in world football.
From Sevilla manager's first victory over FC Barcelona to the La Liga record for penalties conceded in the Madrid derby, here's 5 things you didn't know about this week's La Liga action.

La Liga president Javier Tebas anticipates that Liga or Copa del Rey games will be played outside of Spain in the future.

Bringing competitive domestic games to other countries in order to generate extra interest and revenues on a global level is a leading topic among many of Europe's top leagues -- with English Premier League chiefs having floated the idea on more than one occasion.

A push to raise interest in Spanish teams has seen the introduction in recent years of the LFP World Challenge games,...

Keylor Navas 'stronger' after Real Madrid to Man United move collapse

The fifth straight shutout since the start of 2015-16 betters former Real keeper Miguel Angel's sequence of four on the spin at the beginning of the 1975-76 campaign.
The ESPN FC panel answer your Twitter questions regarding La Masia, Premier League managers and Keylor Navas.

Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas says the adversity he has faced in his career, particularly during recent times, has helped to make him stronger.

Navas was close to joining Manchester United on the final day of last summer's transfer window, having been included in a swap deal which would have brought David De Gea to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Navas went to Madrid's airport to take a private plane to England, but the deal broke down in circumstances still disputed by both Madrid and United.


David De Gea has moved on from failed Man United to Real Madrid transfer

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: David De Gea (62') Manchester United 2-0 Sunderland
The ESPN FC crew discuss Manchester United's performance against Southampton and speculate if they would be top of the table with De Gea in net.
Despite walking away with a win, Manchester United still haven't convinced ESPN FC's Janusz Michallik that they've hit their stride, mustering a 3-2 win against a dangerous Southampton side.

Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea says he has moved on from the debacle of his failed transfer to Real Madrid and appreciates the support and help he has received from everyone at Old Trafford.

De Gea was widely expected to complete a move to Madrid during the summer, but the transfer fell through on deadline day when the documentation was not submitted in time.

In a preview clip released ahead of a programme to be screened on Canal Plus on Monday, the Spain international said the whole affair...

Sergio Ramos 'relaxed' over Rafa Benitez disagreement suggestions

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe responds to reports suggesting tension between Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez and defender Sergio Ramos.

Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos has played down any idea of a fall-out with Blancos boss Rafa Benitez.

Benitez has come in for criticism in the wake of his apparently cautious tactics during Sunday's 1-1 La Liga derbi draw at Atletico Madrid.

Analysing the match on Spanish radio on Monday night, Benitez spoke about players making individual mistakes at 1-0 up, and repeatedly mentioned Ramos conceding a penalty which was taken by Atletico's Antoine Griezmann and saved by Madrid goalkeeper Keylor...

Alvaro Morata happy at Juventus despite Real Madrid return talk

David Beckham says Alvaro Morata and Marco Verratti are two of the world's most exciting footballers, aside from Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes reacts to recent reports that Florentino Perez would be interested in re-signing Alvaro Morata from Juve at the end of the season.
Two late goals from Mario Mandzukic and Alvaro Morata propelled Juventus to a 2-1 comeback victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Alvaro Morata has once again insisted he is happy at Juventus and not considering a return to Real Madrid.

Morata, 22, joined the Bianconeri last year in a deal which saw Real retain a right to buy him back for a fixed sum during the duration of his five-year contract.

The amount the Spanish side would have to pay grows each year, but that is not reducing the likelihood of them activating the clause and buying Morata back.

His goals helped Juve reach the final of the Champions League last season...
