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,...

Barcelona chief: Real Madrid shouldn't be punished, change transfer rules

Real Madrid is under investigation by FIFA whether Los Blancos have followed the rules relating to the transfers of players under the age of 18.

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has suggested the club can find ways around their current transfer ban, while saying he does not wish La Liga rivals Real Madrid to be similarly sanctioned if also found guilty by FIFA of breaking youth transfer rules.

Barcelona were found guilty in early 2014 of breaching the regulations regarding the signing of players under 16, and after first claiming to have done nothing wrong, the club have eventually accepted that mistakes had been made.

Since the ban...
