United make Kroos key summer target

We've already heard that Manchester United will boost their defence in the summer, and now it seems the midfield will get a makeover as well, with Toni Kroos the priority target.

The Independent reports that Jose Mourinho has made it clear that he needs to add a midfielder, with Kroos the man in his sights.

After trailing 2-1 at halftime, Marco Asensio and Real Madrid stormed back to a 5-3 win over Real Betis at the Benito Villamarin.

It was a small detail, one of those stats published as a bit of an afterthought on a Monday morning after a Real Madrid victory: Marco Asensio's second goal in the thriller in Seville was Real Madrid's 6,000th strike in La Liga, making the Spanish club the only one in Europe outside of five English sides to achieve the feat of 6,000 league goals.

One front page after Sunday night's eight-goal fiesta preferred to note that Cristiano Ronaldo now has a better goals-per-game ratio than his great rival...

Real still have issues despite win, VAR debate for Man United, more

More than most games they'll play this season, Real Madrid's 5-3, come-from-behind victory over Real Betis lends itself to different readings depending on your point of view. Compared to the win over Paris Saint-Germain, Zinedine Zidane opted to drop Isco and Karim Benzema and instead unleashed Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez down the wings, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale as forwards.

Those of us who think Madrid need a proper, blue-collar central striker for this team to work may have...

Marco Asensio the match-winner Real Madrid have been waiting for

Marco Asensio's two-goal night helped Real Madrid overcome their first halftime deficit in La Liga since February 2017 and pick up a win at Real Betis.

The search for the real Real Madrid goes on. Sunday's 5-3 win over Real Betis was always going to be a frenetic affair, and the billing did not disappoint with Marco Asensio proving he can be a game-changer as a starter as well as from the bench.

Zinedine Zidane was afforded the chance to rest Luka Modric and give minutes to some of the players who might be feeling a little left out in the cold while also securing all three points. The Champions League is all that matters now and any La Liga comeback...

Liverpool stars Mane, Salah, Firmino should unity beats individuals

Shaka Hislop and Mark Donaldson discuss what makes the Mane-Salah-Firmino partnership so effective and how they compare to other attacking trios around Europe.
Liverpool's pace and passing were on full display during this counterattack that led to their third goal against Porto.
Following their sound victory over Porto, the ESPN FC panel praise Liverpool and also discuss the state of Portuguese football.
Liverpool left no doubt that they are a force to be reckoned with in Europe by putting five past Porto in the Estádio do Dragão.

Wednesday night's Champions League action was a wonderful demonstration of the fact that football remains a team sport rather than an individual one, and that assembling the world's most talented footballers is no guarantee of making the world's most formidable side.
