Gareth Bale thanks Real Madrid fans for support in Spanish interview

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes discuss Manchester United's reported plans to make one last attempt to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid in the final week of the transfer window.
Real Madrid's Gareth Bale says his side were rusty in their opening day draw with Sporting Gijón, and that they will get better.

Gareth Bale has spoken of his appreciation of the support he receives from Real Madrid's fans, in his first ever Spanish language interview which will be broadcast on Thursday.

Bale, 26, joined Madrid from Tottenham in a €100 million deal back in the summer of 2013, and despite scoring in both the Champions League and Copa del Rey final successes during his first season in Spain he has never really won over all supporters and pundits.

New Madrid coach Rafa Benitez has moved the Wales international...

He wrote: "So...

Ivan Perisic set to complete move to Inter Milan from Wolfsburg

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti doubts that Inter Milan will be able to secure the funds necessary to do anything other than loan Erik Lamela from Tottenham Hotspur, which may not be enough to satisfy the English side.
Get up to speed with all the key facts and figures ahead of the opening weekend in Italy with five things you need to know.

Inter Milan hope to wrap up the signing of Ivan Perisic on Friday after the player was left out of the Wolfsburg squad for the Bundesliga clash with Schalke.

Reports in Italy and Germany suggest Croatia international Perisic is on his way to the Nerazzurri, whose coach Roberto Mancini has made him a key summer target.

The clubs are reported to have moved closer to an agreement, despite Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs suggesting that Inter would not be able to afford the 26-year-old.

Dick Advocaat hits out at Sunderland's past transfer spending

Sunderland manager Dick Advocaat said that although he's much happier than last week after his side's 1-1 draw against Swansea this weekend, he felt the missing penalty call was a bit of hard luck.

Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat believes he is suffering because of "crazy" spending on "lower than average" players in the past.

Advocaat belatedly accepted owner Ellis Short's offer of an extended stay on Wearside after securing Premier League survival on a short-term deal last season.

He has spent the months since then pleading for up to half a dozen "quality" players to strengthen a squad which has struggled in each of the last two seasons.

Advocaat told the Sunderland Echo: "We had a big...
