Transfer Talk: Real Madrid, Bayern, Inter, Juventus and PSG in talks with Aaron Ramsey

The transfer window for Europe's biggest clubs is open again. Transfer Talk has been scouring the world's media and setting our correspondents loose to see who could be heading to/out of your club this month.

TOP STORY: Real, Bayern, Inter, Juve and PSG in talks with Ramsey

Aaron Ramsey has a choice to make. He's available on a free transfer this summer, as Arsenal have decided not to offer him a new contract, but he's not exactly short of options it seems.

The BBC report that Bayern...

Can Inter shrug off Boxing Day shame to keep pace near the top? What to watch in Serie A

There's one more big weekend of soccer in Italy on ESPN2 and ESPN+ before the new year, but where should you begin your viewing journey?

Juventus host Sampdoria (12/29, 6.30 a.m., ESPN2) in a battle that should keep Max Allegri's side well and truly clear at the top. Games between these two tend to deliver on entertainment -- five of their past six meetings have yielded more than 2.5 goals per 90 -- and there's definitely the chance of a big upset. Sampdoria held on for a 3-2 home win over the...

Monkey chants at Inter vs. Napoli, controversy and fan violence show Serie A still has far to go

What was supposed to be a day of celebration on Boxing Day, with games of football played in an atmosphere of goodwill, instead turned into what is locally known as figuraccia: "the worst possible impression."

Mauro and Wanda Icardi steal the show at Inter Milan as contract saga turns box office

Gab Marcotti assesses how Radja Nainggolan's club-enforced suspension will impact Inter when they take on Napoli in a top-three Serie A clash.

Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis never misses a chance to have a pop at his old coach Maurizio Sarri and the club's trip to Inter Milan on Boxing Day (live on ESPNews at 2.30 p.m. ET) provided an opportunity that he wasn't prepared to pass up.

Reflecting on the summer of 2016 when Juventus had paid Gonzalo Higuain's €90 million buy-out clause and deprived Napoli of the league's top scorer, De Laurentiis recalls asking Sarri: "Who shall we buy then?" as though some retail therapy might...

Luciano Spalletti carries the can for Inter's Champions League implosion

Given Inter's draw with PSV and Barcelona having nothing to play for, Craig Burley says everything lined up for Tottenham to reach the UCL last 16.

When things go wrong for managers, especially when the margins are tight, they usually reach into the same grab bag of explanations and excuses. Either the match officials made a mistake or they were "unlucky" -- the "on another day" argument -- or they were lacking something, meaning they panicked, showed a lack of concentration or the classic "opponent wanted it more."

Watch enough football for enough years and you come to understand that, in fact, a lot of what happens is down to randomness....

Late goals, controversial calls and bad blood: Why you should watch Juventus vs. Inter

Juventus have won seven straight Serie A titles and appear well-placed for an eighth, but on Friday they welcome rivals Inter Milan to town for what promises to be an intense battle. Inter are back on the right track after years of midtable difficulties and are currently third. The Derby d'Italia is one of Italy's biggest rivalries and Gab Marcotti explains why you should enjoy Friday's edition (2:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
