Mon, 13 Aug 2018 07:34:00 PDT

In other words, six of their 11 most frequently used players from last season were missing, when they set a new Premier League points total with 100. The scary...

Cristiano Ronaldo is gone, so Luka Modric is more important to Real Madrid than ever

Fri, 10 Aug 2018 03:15:00 PDT

ESPN FC's Paolo Bandini has his doubts about the Modric-Inter link but sees a scenario where the deal could actually happen. Cristiano Ronaldo has taken the headlines for Real Madrid's recent successes, and rightly so given his scoring record, but Luka Modric's role in midfield has arguably been just as important. Modric's performances for Croatia at the World Cup (where he won the Golden Ball in taking them to the final) have catapulted him into a new tier of superstardom. Losing Ronaldo to Juventus makes Modric so much more important now than he ever was and if Real Madrid are to improve in their new era with Julen...

Navas' immediate existence might have hit a snag but his response to the challenge has been crystallising for several years....

Gareth Bale is ready to be the leader at Real Madrid

Tue, 7 Aug 2018 07:49:00 PDT

International Champions Cup: Gareth Bale (15') Real Madrid 2-0 Roma International Champions Cup: Marco Asensio (2') Real Madrid 1-0 Roma EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- It's always hard to divine much from preseason, especially one that's truncated by players away on post-World Cup vacations, extreme amounts of air travel and the need to be mindful about easing back into action after weeks away. Young talent often gets the bulk of the playing time to show whether they belong in the first-team squad or out on loan for the season. Endless subs make it dizzying to track who's playing, and how well. But one player who's very much been central...

Thu, 2 Aug 2018 05:07:00 PDT

The dust is starting to settle in Madrid after Cristiano Ronaldo's exit, and Sid Lowe explains why the mood is so good in the Real camp. Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera scored in the first half to lift Jose Mourinho's side to a 2-1 win over Gareth Bale and Real Madrid. ICC: Karim Benzema (45'+3') Manchester United 2-1 Real Madrid "All that's missing is a 9," ran the headline in Madrid sports daily AS after the opening game of Julen Lopetegui's Real Madrid tenure ended in a 2-1 defeat against Jose Mourinho's Manchester United. Other than serving as a thinly veiled cry for a Galactico to fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo's departure, those few short words also give the impression that Lopetegui's side played United off the pitch. That was scarcely the case. The game was conducted with the gravity a preseason cash-spinner...
