We’ll update the list from time to time as news emerge from leading transfer news outlets across the world of football
Spurs sign former Wolves coach
After being rejected by a host of names in the management world, Tottenham Hotspur finally agreed terms with former Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo and the Portuguese will be in charge on a two year contract.
Ryan Mason didn’t look like getting the job on a permanent basis but the comedy that followed the coach search left too much to be desired as Antonio Conte, Julian Lopetegui and Steven Gerrard all rejected the job offer. Spurs will always be Spurs you know…
United finally getting Sancho
It’s been forever since the lad has been on the radar of Manchester United, they labored in vain last season and started talks even before the season ended, we can confirm to you that Jadon Sancho will be a Manchester United player this summer.
The fee is in the region of $101 and it also means he will take his place on the right of the front three, where does that leave Mason Greenwood and Daniel James?
Arsenal enter race for Manuel Locatelli
Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli is the latest name on Arsenal’s wish list after his impressive run in the ongoing European championship;
Juventus had reached out to his contingent but nothing agreed yet, however Arsenal are being confirmed to have submitted a bid which is unclear at the moment what it entails but with Juventus being interested in Granit Xhaka, the two clubs can find ways round it.
Xhaka can go to Juventus and Locatelli to Arsenal, but how well do Italians settle in England? The Lucas Torreira is a very recent example for Arsenal.
Arsenal agree deal for Benfica’s Tavares
Still on Arsenal, things are heating up on the North side of London as Arsenal have agreed a deal for Benfica left back Nuno Tavares and the young defender will undergo medical on Friday ahead of his low budget move to Arsenal.
Kieran Tierney is certainly Arsenal’s first choice in that position but the club suffered in his absence last season, a young defender with first team experience is a good back up especially with the little confidence the club has in Sead Kolasinac who’s back from loan to Schalke 04.
Lionel Messi is a free agent!
Right as we speak and at the time you’ll be reading this, Lionel Messi is a free agent, yes you read that right, which means he can join any club for free and on his own terms, while we can report that Barcelona are still the favorites to land him again, things can change quickly.
The super star is currently on international duty as he tries to land his first ever senior international trophy, he will have Brazil and Chile to negotiate for that but we wait for the next move for the reigning Balon d’or winner.
