Varane must start for Real

Real Madrid

Denis Suarez's Barcelona block could be a blessing in disguise

Bayern Munich and Germany defender Jerome Boateng addresses the moment when he slipped and fell when squaring off with Lionel Messi in the Champions League.

Denis Suarez could be forgiven for feeling let down this month.

Despite suggestions that a Europa League-winning season at Sevilla would be capped off with a dream chance to play for the team who went one better when it comes to European trophies, the youngster has just learned that he will not be making an early return to FC Barcelona.

Though he signed for Barca two years ago now, Suarez's relationship with his parent club has been a convoluted one. He joined from Manchester City on the understanding...

New Real Madrid boss Rafa Benitez facing squad-balance headaches

Cristiano Ronaldo has dismissed reports in Spain that he is disillusioned with life at Real Madrid.

As July approaches and players start to filter back from their holidays, Rafa Benitez has a few squad issues to sort out. However, there is a finer balancing act to be performed than merely the modern ideal of two players for each position, plus a couple of back-ups.

Last summer, Real Madrid's entire playing staff were present and correct on the training turf at Valdebebas on July 14. Benitez has little time to play his cards if he is to stamp his own mark on his inherited squad. Other than the obvious...

Paul Pogba is Barcelona's most logical signing this transfer season

ESPN FC's Gabriele Marcotti talks Paul Pogba transfer rumours, and how the Juventus midfielder will eventually move for the right price.

Only three weeks have passed since Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez and the rest of their Barcelona teammates lifted the Champions League trophy in Berlin. Contrary to what many would believe, such a remarkable achievement has not managed to keep fans fully satisfied for even a month.

Inevitably, Culers have already shifted their focus toward finding ways to improve the current squad. Despite the Blaugranas' being banned from signing any players until January 2016, due to their breaching the rules...

Atletico strike force shaping up with imminent Martinez addition

The ESPN FC panel respond to the reports suggesting Antoine Griezmann's possible transfer to Chelsea next season.

Whatever you think of them, Atletico Madrid's hierarchy are very much in the mould of their side: streetwise and savvy. Upon launching their new kit -- a vintage throwback to the kit worn by the 1995-96 double winning side -- they also allowed Fernando Torres to spill the beans that following Mario Mandzukic's move to Juventus he will recover "his" number 9 shirt.

"With permission from the great [Jose Eulogio] Garate, I'll have the honour of once again wearing the number 9," tweeted the forward...

As Sergio Ramos goes head-to-head with Real Madrid, sides are taken

The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets on Arsenal's chances of winning the Premier League if they sign Morgan Schneiderlin and Petr Cech and whether Sergio Ramos is worth the cash.
The ESPN FC panel discuss the recent report that Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos has told his club that he would like to leave.

Wesley Sneijder's off-field behaviour was questioned; Mesut Ozil was always out partying until late; Arjen Robben was forever injured; and Angel Di Maria was greedy. They were all greedy, in fact. Greedy and often ill-advised. None of them cared about Real Madrid, and they didn't respect Madrid, either. The Santiago Bernabeu was a better place without them, and besides, they'd left because they wanted to, not because anyone had encouraged them to go, still less pushed them out. Or so the stories...

Sergio Ramos signing would soften the blow of De Gea departure at Man Utd

The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets on Arsenal's chances of winning the Premier League if they sign Morgan Schneiderlin and Petr Cech and whether Sergio Ramos is worth the cash.

Contrary to what every new Manchester United signing will tell you this summer, the club is not currently the biggest in the world. It may be the biggest in England and certainly one of the more prestigious clubs in Europe, with a fascinating history and impressive trophy cabinet, but it's foolish to claim that they're top dog.

Yes, United's average attendance is bigger than Real Madrid's, despite their stadium having around 10,000 fewer seats, but Forbes places the Spanish giants on top of their...
