Chelsea to test Real Madrid's resolve with audacious move for Sergio Ramos

TOP STORY: Chelsea in talks with Ramos' agent?

Sergio Ramos is never one to back down from a confrontation, and it seems Chelsea might look to capitalise on his current contract impasse with Real Madrid.

The Daily Express reported Jose Mourinho will seek to add Ramos to his leaky back line, with the Blues inquiring with the player's agent as to whether the...

The Blues needed a header from Branislav Ivanovic early in extra time before they could start to celebrate after the 90 minutes failed to yield any goals. But that was not for the lack of trying with the game wide open for majority of the evening.

Liverpool started the brighter and drew a couple...

Coquelin must still prove to Arsenal that he is a long-term solution

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti discusses Arsenal's defensive cover in Gabriel Paulista, where he feels the centre back position may be well covered now for Arsene Wenger's side.

You cannot really blame Francis Coquelin for taking his time.

After all, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger took his time before giving Coquelin a proper chance in the first team. Coquelin is out of contract at the end of the season, he's been offered a new three year deal and Wenger says he's confident that Coquelin will sign and stay.

And on the back of one magnificent game at Manchester City, we've all decided Coquelin is the answer to all of Arsenal's problems in midfield. The trouble is that I'm...

Coutinho, Skrtel star in Liverpool's spirited cup defeat at Chelsea

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes goes play-by-play to break down Chelsea's extra time triumph over Liverpool on their way to the Capital One Cup final.

Liverpool were knocked out of the Capital One Cup after a tense, frenetic and often bad-tempered match at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea's Branislav Ivanovic scored the only goal of the night in the third minute of extra time to seal the Londoners' passage to Wembley, 1-0 on the night and 2-1 on aggregate.

Once more, it came from a long-endured Liverpool flaw: a cross into the box from a set piece. The Serb rose unmarked and unhindered and guided the ball past a helpless Simon Mignolet from close...

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...

Sacking Inzaghi would accomplish nothing for Milan

Gabriele Marcotti discusses whether Silvio Berlusconi will attempt to sell his beloved AC Milan in the near future.

The narrative went that if Milan lost to Lazio for a second time in four days on Tuesday night, manager Filippo "Pippo" Inzaghi would lose his job. The first half of that story came true as 10-man Lazio conquered the San Siro with a 1-0 victory, but it appears as though the search for a new coach is on hold for the time being.

The Rossoneri have unsurprisingly been in the spotlight over the past few days, with stories varying over the doubts surrounding Inzaghi's future, to CEO Adriano Galliani's...
