Transfer Rater: Hazard to Real Madrid


Why Neymar may not want Man United move

How Chelsea can keep Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois from Real Madrid

Gab Marcotti dissects the rumours linking Eden Hazard with a summer move from Chelsea to Real Madrid.

There are few things in football more predictable than Real Madrid spending the summer transfer window attempting to extract the best players from the Premier League. So with the 2016-17 season having less than two months to run, the Spanish giants have begun their annual attempt to hoover up the cream of English football with Chelsea's Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois reportedly their prime targets.

That Real Madrid are interested in signing them speaks volumes about how each has performed this...

Can Zidane lure Mbappe to Real Madrid -- and replace Benzema in the process?

The FC guys discuss the rumours surrounding Kylian Mbappe and whether or not he's ready for a move to Real or Barca.

Real Madrid transfer stories generally play out in the capital's sports media in three stages.

First, there is the tentative link, when Player A is mentioned in a story with another player, or more than one club is linked to the same player with Barcelona often the hedge-betting option whenever the Bernabeu is involved.

Then comes the addition of either the coach or club president's name to a story about Player A and some two-plus-two stuff as to why the transfer could go through, coupled with...

Man United's Mkhitaryan can continue to be a difference maker this season

Paul Mariner compares and contrasts the styles of Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho, highlighting their defensive differences.
Steve Nicol wraps up all of Sunday's Premier League action, with United and Spurs getting much-needed wins and Liverpool and City battling to a breathless 1-1 draw.
Steve Nicol wraps up all of Sunday's Premier League action, with United and Spurs getting much-needed wins and Liverpool and City battling to a breathless 1-1 draw.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan played a starring role as Armenia's captain vs. Kazakhstan on Sunday, scoring the first goal -- extending his national record to 20 -- in a 2-0 win. The chances of Armenia reaching a first-ever World Cup finals appear slight but they are just one point outside a playoff place at the halfway stage of qualifying. 

Mkhitaryan is his nation's greatest-ever player, having won the first of his 62 caps as a 17-year-old over a decade ago. Without him, Armenia lost their first three...

Danny Blind's use of Matthijs de Ligt for Netherlands was selfish

Matthijs de Ligt had made two top-flight starts for Ajax before Danny Blind put him in the squad against Bulgaria.

Danny Blind is out as coach of the Dutch national team and Fred Grim has replaced him. (From Blind to Grim: insert your own joke here.)

That was the fallout from the Oranje's 2-0 away defeat to Bulgaria, which left them fourth in Group A, six points behind France, three behind Sweden and two behind Bulgaria. Automatic qualification is likely beyond them but they still control their destiny in terms of a playoff spot given they have home dates against Bulgaria and Sweden coming up in September and...

Long-running saga of AC Milan sale drags on for another month

Silvio Berlusconi
Owner Silvio Berlusconi should just keep the investment group's non-refundable deposits and come out way ahead.

The story regarding the sale of AC Milan becomes more grotesque week after week. A quick recap for those whose eyes glaze over when talking about money and football: Last August, Milan agreed a sale to a Chinese investment group, Sino Europe Sports (SES), run by a guy named Li Yonghong. It valued the club at €740 million ($818m) at the time. SES made a non-refundable deposit of €100m ($110m) with the rest of the cash due in December.

In the meantime, to show its credibility, SES hired...

England try to find a "Plan B," Cristiano Ronaldo's latest goals, Mbappe's future

Shaka Hislop talks which of England's strikers will most likely feature in the 2018 World Cup next summer.

The fact that Gareth Southgate switched to a back three in Thursday's 1-0 friendly defeat to Germany only to go back to a 4-2-3-1 in the qualifier against Lithuania on Sunday was read in different ways. He said it was a function of needing to figure out different formations to suit different opponents. It's an interesting take and somewhat different from his predecessors, most of whom believed that the best way to build chemistry was to play the same way each time.

The problem with England having...
