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...

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.

Luis Enrique can end crisis talk at Barcelona by securing win vs. Atletico

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop discusses Barcelona's improving form since the new year, but in particular Lionel Messi's seven goals in five matches in all competitions.

Barcelona take a 1-0 win to Atletico Madrid in the second leg of their Spanish Cup quarterfinal this week and if Luis Enrique can plot a way past La Liga's champions, talk of a crisis at the Camp Nou may finally cease.

The Barcelona coach has won six in a row following the shock 1-0 defeat to David Moyes' Real Sociedad -- a match where he started Lionel Messi and Neymar on the bench -- and a place in the semifinals of the Spanish Cup will rubber-stamp Barca's revival.

With just one defeat in 18 matches,...

Fernando Torres could return for Spain, Vincente del Bosque says

Atletico Madrid head coach Diego Simeone says his side weren't distracted by their upcoming Copa del Rey clash with Barcelona as they beat Rayo Vallecano 3-1.

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque says Fernando Torres has a chance to return to the international stage and welcomed his move back to Atletico Madrid.

Torres has scored 38 goals in 110 games for his country, winning the 2010 World Cup and 2008 and 2012 European Championships, but he has not featured at international level since scoring in the 3-0 win over Australia in Spain's final group game at the 2014 World Cup.

The 30-year-old had appeared unlikely to return to international action after struggling...
