Asier Illarramendi: Real Madrid move 'did not go as well as I would have liked'

Why didn't Asier Illarramendi work out at Real Madrid? FC's Alejandro Moreno gives his thoughts.

Illarramendi joined Madrid from Sociedad in a €38.8 million deal in 2013 but struggled to win a regular place under then coach Carlo Ancelotti.

AS reports a deal in the region of €17 million, plus add-ons, has been agreed between the two sides to secure his return to San Sebastian.

Illarramendi said: "Very happy. Of course, I...

Asier Illarramendi wanted by Real Sociedad's Bergara and Martinez

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley sounds off on the "crisis" at Real Madrid after drawing their La Liga opener against Sporting Gijon and the questionable tactics that Rafa Benitez has put into place.

Real Sociedad's Markel Bergara and Inigo Martinez both say they would be delighted if former teammate Asier Illarramendi returns to the Basque club from Real Madrid.

Illarramendi, 25, moved from La Real to Madrid in a deal worth €38.8 million two summers ago. However, the midfielder has never really settled at the club and now looks unlikely to feature in the plans of new coach Rafa Benitez, especially after the €30m signing of Mateo Kovacic.

AS says a deal is being put together for the...
