Why Lionel Messi won't leave Barcelona for Manchester City

Alison Bender and Gab Marcotti discuss Lionel Messi's contract situation, amid rumors Manchester City are interested.

Lionel Messi has once again been linked with a world-record move to Manchester City, but it's difficult to see him leaving Barcelona. While his new contract remains unsigned -- his current terms expire in 2018 -- there will continue to be speculation, although there are plenty of reasons why he won't leave Camp Nou.

Messi has never been more at home

Only Messi himself could say when he's been happiest, but there's a feeling that he's as happy as he's ever been right now -- both on the pitch at home....

Zinedine Zidane's forward-thinking means Real are still title favourites

Gabriele Marcotti is joined by Alison Bender to tackle your questions on Real Madrid, La Liga and Pep Guardiola's dilemma.

"We knew this would happen someday."

Zinedine Zidane was philosophical after Sevilla finally brought Real Madrid's 40-game unbeaten streak to a dramatic end at the Sanchez Pizjuan on Sunday as the home side struck twice late on to secure a 2-1 victory.

The Frenchman's appraisal was true to the party line he has been towing since the start of the season and his side's loss on Sunday a timely reminder that the record-breaking undefeated run could not continue ad infinitum.

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo levels La Liga penalty record vs. Sevilla

Zinedine Zidane has said that he knew Real Madrid would eventually have to lose as they sunk to a 2-1 defeat at Sevilla.

MADRID -- Cristiano Ronaldo's penalty in Real Madrid's 2-1 loss to Sevilla on Sunday saw him equal Hugo Sanchez's record for most spot kicks scored in La Liga with 56 -- while keeping him well ahead of long-time rival Lionel Messi in this aspect.

Ronaldo, recently crowned Ballon d'Or winner and FIFA Best player of 2016, did not have his best game in open play at the noisy Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan, missing a number of relatively clear chances. But he did calmly convert the 67th minute penalty, despite...

Real Madrid run ends; Barcelona, Sevilla and Atletico close gap

With their 40-match unbeaten run ending with a loss to Sevilla, the FC crew think Real have nothing to worry about.

Five thoughts from the weekend's La Liga action as Real Madrid's unbeaten record finally fell at 40 games and Sevilla, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid all closed up behind the leaders.

1. Karma for Madrid as unbeaten record goes

Late drama was a regular occurrence through the last nine months as Real Madrid set a new Spanish record for consecutive games unbeaten in all competitions -- with captain Sergio Ramos often arriving at the death to score a vital goal to keep the run going. During their 40...

Nicolas Gaitan the difference as under-par Atletico Madrid edge Real Betis

Nicolas Gaitan
Nicolas Gaitan struck the only goal as Atletico Madrid edged Real Betis.

A dogged performance from a slightly under-par Atletico Madrid was enough to see off a spirited Real Betis outfit 1-0 at the Vicente Calderon on Saturday.

It appeared it would be plain sailing when Nicolas Gaitan neatly fired the home side ahead after just eight minutes, but the Andalusian outfit dug in their heels and did not let Los Colchoneros have it all their own way. Nevertheless, that is now two wins from two tricky league games since the Christmas break and there are encouraging signs there.
