LIVE Transfer Talk: Real Madrid consider shock move for Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the opener and provided an assist in a must-win game for the LA Galaxy to keep their playoff hopes intact.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined Scott Van Pelt to look ahead to Sunday's crucial game vs. Minnesota and how he's adapted to life in LA.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Zlatan Ibrahimovic won't be going back to Manchester United on loan in January for the simple reason that he won't want to sit on the bench at Old Trafford.

The transfer window for all of Europe's big five leagues is closed, but that doesn't stop Transfer Talk from rummaging around about who will be moving where come January.

TOP STORY

Real Madrid are considering making a shock move to sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic from LA Galaxy in the January transfer window, according to Cadena Cope.

The European champions bolstered their attacking ranks in the summer by bringing Mariano back from Lyon to fill the gap left by Cristiano Ronaldo's departure to Juventus.

However,...

Sacking Julen Lopetegui won't save Real Madrid from rot stemming from squad in decline

Steve Nicol sees Antonio Conte as a good short-term solution for Real Madrid should the club decide to part ways with Julen Lopetegui.
ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Ross Dyer look at how Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui can turn things around after a fifth-straight game without a win.
Julen Lopetegui insists he doesn't fear being sacked as Real Madrid manager after they suffered another loss to Levante.

I was one of those in Krasnodar, Russia, who lived through the 24 hours of "What's happening to Julen Lopetegui?" when the Spanish FA president decided whether to back or sack La Roja's coach last June.

Now, four months later, here we are again. Chaos reigns, short-term criteria will dominate over either mid- or long-term planning, egos are to the fore and Lopetegui must be very unsure indeed whether he's got several hours or several days to alter his fate at Real Madrid.

Back in Krasnodar the...

Luis Suarez back near his best, Marc-Andre ter Stegen stars in win over Sevilla

Barcelona took care of Sevilla at the Camp Nou, but victory came at a price as star-man Lionel Messi was subbed off in the 15th minute with an apparent arm injury.

Barcelona moved back to the top of La Liga with a 4-2 win Saturday against Sevilla but they were left with concerns over an injury to Lionel Messi.

Messi set up Philippe Coutinho for the opener and scored the second himself before being forced off with an arm injury after 26 minutes.

Luis Suarez added Barca's third from the penalty spot in the second half after a remarkable double save from Marc-Andre ter Stegen at the other end.

Sevilla pulled one back through Pablo Sarabia, with Ivan Rakitic...

Atletico Madrid seemed to be heading top of La Liga when Filipe Luis headed them ahead early in the second half, but ended up happy with the point as Villarreal equalised through Mario Gaspar and then missed a string of chances to take the victory.

Positives

Atletico had lost on their last three visits to Villarreal, so avoiding defeat at their bogey ground can be seen as a positive. Goalkeeper Jan Oblak also again showed why he is one of the world's best.

Negatives

Diego Simeone's side were easily...

MADRID -- After the embarrassing 2-1 defeat to Levante at the Bernabeu, the final whistle was followed immediately by prolonged whistles from those angry supporters still left inside the half-empty stadium and traditional white handkerchief protest calling for the sacking of coach Julen Lopetegui.

Lopetegui has lost five games in all competitions since taking over this summer -- including the past three in a row -- and has presided over the club's second-worst goal drought of 481 minutes, broken...

Real Madrid defence suffer as Raphael Varane 3/10, Sergio Ramos 4/10 stand out

Another embarrassment for Real Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui as his team went 2-0 down and made the second longest run without a goal (481 minutes) in their entire 116 year existence before Marcelo's late consolation.

Madrid could claim some bad luck: two VAR decisions went against them, they hit the woodwork three times and had a late possible equaliser ruled out for offside. But this was a shambles of a performance, and president Florentino Perez could pull the trigger on Lopetegui even before...
