The Spanish government have prepared a draft law which would mandate that the rights are sold collectively, which it is hoped will lead...

Manchester United's David De Gea: The Premier League really suits me

On-loan Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has played down talk of a move to Juventus, as speculation about an imminent exit from Old Trafford continues to grow.
The ESPN FC crew react to reports suggesting Spain international and Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas is in talks to leave the club.

De Gea, 24, has been one of United's standout performers since the beginning of the 2013-14 season after a difficult start to life at Old Trafford.

The Spanish keeper joined United from Atletico Madrid in 2011, and told FIFA's official website he is benefiting from having to adapt to English football.

"Truth be told, English football has changed...

Vicente del Bosque: Spain veterans must show their hunger

Spain manager Vicente del Bosque explains his side must continue their fine attacking form ahead of their international friendly against the Netherlands.
ESPN FC's Sid Lowe explains Spain will seek revenge from their international friendly against Spain, following their disastrous performance in the World Cup.

Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has challenged his big-name players to show they are still hungry for more success at international level.
