Yesterday Barcelona confirmed that Neymar has requested a transfer to join French giants PSG. If you’re curious about the technical parts of the deal, read this piece on how La Liga release clauses work. Meanwhile, the Catalans are now reportedly offering Liverpool around €100m to bring in Phillipe Coutinho to replace the Brazilian winger.

Quick note: Christian Eriksen is a wayyyyyy better fit for Barcelona. But they aren’t being linked with him at all. You gotta love Daniel Levy.

The season hasn’t even started and TSF is already talking about how they’d be totally fine with sixth place plus a Europa League trophy this season. I love 2017.

Roma has joined the hunt for Dortmund winger Emre Mor.

Kylian Mbappe has decided that he wants to leave Monaco.
