Villarreal sign defender Ramiro Funes Mori from Everton

Centre-back Ramiro Funes Mori has joined Villarreal from Everton after spending three seasons at Goodison Park, the clubs have announced.

The 27-year-old Argentine has signed a four-year deal with the La Liga club. The transfer fee was not disclosed.

Funes Mori moved to Everton from River Plate in September 2015 for £11.6 million, making 67 appearances in all competitions for the club.

However, a knee injury suffered in March 2017 saw him play in just four matches for the club after recovering.


Gareth Bale's Real Madrid future about winning Ballon d'Or, not money - agent

The guys respond to your tweets about how Real Madrid could get Lewandowski, Iniesta's importance to Spain and their bold World Cup picks.
The FC panel react to reports that Man United are lodging a €100m bid for Gareth Bale and question whether the Welshman even fits the Jose Mourinho mould.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley explains why Gareth Bale should sit tight and bide his time at Real Madrid before moving elsewhere.

Real Madrid's Gareth Bale is motivated by an ambition to win the Ballon d'Or and can only do so if he plays more under new coach Julen Lopetegui, according to his agent, Jonathan Barnett.

Bale, 28, said immediately after the Champions League final victory over Liverpool that he was frustrated by having lost his starting place for the biggest games under then-coach Zinedine Zidane.

The change in coaches may boost to Bale's optimism, but Barnett told Sky Sports that a player such as Bale should not...

Real Madrid's deals for Julen Lopetegui, Raul de Tomas symbolic of new club direction

The ESPN FC crew assess the timing of Real Madrid's first news conference unveiling new coach Julen Lopetegui after his sacking.
An emotional Julen Lopetegui discusses the pain of his sacking as Spain manager and the pride he has in accepting the Real Madrid job.

When Raul de Tomas hangs up his boots, he wants to be a boxer. He loves the physical aspect of the sport and says he uses it to blow off steam. Before he steps into the ring, though, he has a dream that is more pressing.

"Every night, I go to sleep thinking about being a Real Madrid player," he told Diario AS.

He has a fighting chance to do just that after signing a five-year deal with the club on the back of a stellar campaign with Rayo Vallecano. He scored 24 goals in 32 games, which saw Real...

Isco stands out with 8/10 performance as Spain struggle to beat Iran

Spain managed to walk away with three points against Iran, but the FC crew explain how Iran managed to disrupt La Roja.
Cristiano Ronaldo broke another record versus Morocco, Luis Suarez led Uruguay past Saudi Arabia and much more headline Matchday 7.

Spain put in their second mixed-bag performance of the World Cup, needing Diego Costa's fortunate goal to beat an Iran side that defended superbly and came close to getting a late equaliser.

La Roja were their usual composed selves in possession but were frustrated by Carlos Queiroz's well-organised defence through the opening 45 minutes, with over 80 percent of possession bringing just one shot on target. The goal soon after the break should really have freed Fernando Hierro's team to properly...

Barcelona interest in Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic is flattering - agent

ESPN FC's Seb Salazar and Herc Gomez debate whether or not a move to Barcelona for Hirving Lozano would make sense for both club and the player.
ESPN FC's Seb Salazar and Herc Gomez address Hirving Lozano to Barcelona rumours and delve into Juan Carlos Osorio's potential starting XI versus South Korea.

Miralem Pjanic's agent has urged Barcelona to contact Juventus if they want to sign the Bosnia international this summer.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Barca's focus has switched to signing a central midfielder following their failure to bring in Antoine Griezmann.

Griezmann was targeted because Barca felt his €100 million release clause represented value for a player of his calibre, but acknowledged that, following the departure of Andres Iniesta, their priorities may be better met elsewhere.
