Thus, according to information from the Sun, the Manchester United Jose Mourinho always interested very closely in Ivan Perisic, who had long been courted last summer before extending to Inter Milan.

Danny Welbeck

Arsenal has already recruited a lot this summer, for about 80 million euros (Bernd Leno, Matteo Guendouzi, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Lucas Torreira), and Unai Emery now seems eager to ease some of its workforces.

"Neymar has decided to stay at PSG"


Paris Saint-Germain can rub its hands. The huge World Cup by Kylian Mbappé is not the only good news. Despite the approaches of Real Madrid, Neymar has decided to extend the adventure in Paris.
Particularly unobtrusive since the elimination of Brazil in the quarterfinals of the World Cup, Neymar saw his teammate Kylian Mbappé shine brightly, win the final and the title of best young World Cup. This duo, with Edinson Cavani to support them, will once again be highlighted throughout the next season.

And if we know that Real Madrid eye Neymar and Mbappé, at least one of them, it will not be for this summer. "Neymar has decided to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, he wants to triumph after not having succeeded during the World Cup, and I think he wants to win titles with PSG," Luis Fernandez told Marca radio. A clear statement that also applies to Mbappé: "He stays too, he's the one who said it, one hundred per cent, he wants to win the Champions League with PSG".

The Spanish media did try to cast doubt on this issue by placing the debate on the financial fair play, but that did not make the director of the training centre go back one inch. "It does not worry me, the most important thing is that Neymar and Mbappé want to stay at PSG," he insisted as if to finish the debate.

Mercato Real Madrid: Courtois, privileged target


Thibaut Courtois was voted best goalkeeper of the World Cup. And inevitably, for a goalkeeper who was already one of the best, it only strengthened his rating. Real Madrid was already following him, but rumours about his transfer are increasing. Marca says that his arrival could be announced in the coming days for an estimated price of 35 million. A rather affordable price that can be explained because it only has one year of contract left.
