Barcelona's search for a fourth striker


Arsenal must make Varane statement


Real's most important signing

Real Madrid

Messi, Suarez and Neymar won't be usurped in Barcelona's striker search

Neymar compared his influence on Brazil's Olympic team to that of Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

Why is it so difficult for Barcelona to sign a forward? And do they even need one, after all?

These are two legitimate questions to ask as the club's prolonged search for someone to supplement the "MSN" trident of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar threatens to descend into farce. High profile targets Nolito and Luciano Vietto have each rejected moves to the Camp Nou in the past month, and Kevin Gameiro looks set to do the same, while the club have also flirted with Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Barbosa,...

Arsenal must target Raphael Varane from Real Madrid to make a statement

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has insisted his team's transfer business will remain a secret.

Football is all about statements now. Manchester United have spent the summer making plenty, whether it's the arrival of Jose Mourinho, Zlatan Ibrahimovic or, potentially, Paul Pogba; Manchester City made an early one with Pep Guardiola and now seem off the pace. Meanwhile, Arsenal's £35 million spend on Granit Xhaka in June seems almost a lifetime ago.

If Arsenal really want to make a statement to their Premier League and European rivals, an opportunity has just presented itself with a long-term...

Still time for James Rodriguez to make himself invaluable to Real Madrid

The ESPN FC crew discuss James Rodriguez's status at Real Madrid and why he has yet to leave the club.
Thomas Meunier's two goals highlighted a dominant first half for PSG in a 3-1 win over Real Madrid.

James Rodriguez joined up with the Real Madrid squad on their preseason tour of the United States on Tuesday, adding to Zinedine Zidane's options for the upcoming friendlies against Chelsea and Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup.

In his news conference ahead of Wednesday's 3-1 loss to Paris Saint-Germain in Columbus, Zidane was asked the inevitable questions: Will James remain if Paul Pogba is signed? Should James be sold to facilitate the arrival of the France international?

The Real...

Atletico Madrid's interest in Kevin Gameiro makes a lot of sense

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner thinks it would be wise for Diego Simeone to dedicate all his time to coaching Atletico Madrid.
Kevin Gameiro scored 16 goals in 29 La Liga appearances for Sevilla last season.

With the annual gruelling preseason workout in the searing heat of Los Angeles de San Rafael now finished, Atletico Madrid yesterday set about getting their match fitness up to scratch.

Such are the demands of modern football -- and this is also testament to the job that Diego Simeone has done with dragging Atleti from mid-table in Spain to Europe's top table -- that their destination is Australia, where they will participate in the International Champions Cup. At one point in the past Atletico...

Luis Enrique needs to sign a striker and work out his midfield at Barcelona

Barcelona manager Luis Enrique held his first news conference ahead of the new season where he talked about his future with the club.

It's fair to say that Luis Enrique has done pretty well since taking over as Barcelona manager two years ago. Since replacing Gerardo Martino in 2014, he's landed seven of the nine trophies available to him -- only missing out on last season's Spanish Super Cup and Champions League.

That doesn't mean he can rest on his laurels, though. If Barca stand still they risk being overtaken and it's Luis Enrique's job -- along with sporting director Robert Fernandez -- to keep his players on their toes and...

Paul Pogba's future: Pros and cons for Man United, Real Madrid and Juve

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop does not necessarily feel Man United or Real Madrid would best suit Paul Pogba.

It's the story that will define this transfer window and one that promises to make history: Where does Paul Pogba's future lie?

Is it worth it for Manchester United or Real Madrid to break the world transfer record to get him? Or should Juventus stay strong and not give into the pressure to sell their star?

ESPN FC looks at the pros and cons of signing Pogba for the three clubs involved.



A mood change: Regardless of the cost involved, the world record signing of Pogba,...
