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...

Real Madrid 'crisis' talk is overblown,
plus: Mourinho stung by his own words

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down the latest action throughout La Liga, where Real Madrid remain atop the league but may be without Cristiano Ronaldo in the Madrid derby following his red card against Cordoba.

According to Spanish daily newspaper Marca, Real Madrid are at DEFCON 2.

On the surface, it might seem a bit excessive given that they are still top of La Liga with a game in hand. But there are a number of fires to put out, despite the 2-1 away win to Cordoba, which was arguably as bad a performance as Madrid have displayed this season.

Cordoba, two points above the drop zone, are (on paper) one of those designated punching bags La Liga's critics like to highlight. Their team is stuffed with...

Lucas Silva's arrival at Real Madrid could lead to changes in the midfield

Real Madrid's latest signing, Brazilian midfielder Lucas Silva, is unveiled by the Spanish club at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu.

Sir Alex Ferguson once said that to stay at the top in football, "you can't stand still."

Further explaining his point, he added, "There was a lot of thinking about being a step ahead, looking forward."

Ferguson's comments came after Chelsea clinched the Premier League title in 2010 and perhaps ring true with regard to Real Madrid's latest signing: Brazilian midfielder Lucas Silva.

The 21-year-old arrives at the Santiago Bernabeu having been a key cog in Cruzeiro's back-to-back Brazilian championships....

TOP STORY: Real, United to battle for Bilbao's Laporte

Manchester United have been linked with young Real Madrid centre-back Raphael Varane due to his struggles for first-team football at the Bernabeu. Even though Real Madrid have one defender struggling to find time, the Daily Mail reported...

Cristiano Ronaldo, red card hysteria needs to calm down

Our experts weigh in on Cristiano Ronaldo's punishment and his actions after the incident.

First came his howl of rage at Gareth Bale when an assist wasn't served up. Then came that pretty cringe-worthy howl at the moon when he was awarded the Ballon d'Or in Zurich. No goals in the World Club Championship, defeat at Valencia, elimination from the Copa del Rey which, thanks to a red card and then an injury, he's not won since 2011. A relationship break-up.

In retrospect, I think we should probably have intuited that Cristiano Ronaldo might be storing up some bile and frustration.
