    City making quick moves. They are in for the uncapped Brazilian keeper Ederson. Looking to break the highest fee paid for a goalkeeper.

    Pep is ready to electrify. Still, he needs more, but this could be the first problem solved since you don't win anything without a keeper. Looks like Joe Hart is done there.

    City already bought Bernardo Silva from Monaco. Hopefully he won't be wasted on the bench or make some other quality player suffer. It's time for them to find some full backs and assemble a younger line-up. Yaya, Kompany, Sagna, Kolarov, Clichy won't last forever, Zabaleta already left. As for the goalkeeper I am really surprised by how shaky Bravo has been. He was the least mistake prone goalkeeper during his time at Barcelona, winning the Zamora trophy convincingly in 2015.

    Silva looks to me like a David Silva type of player. With all the attacking midfielders they have, seems a bit strange they went for him before they addressed the defence and keeper situation.

    Perisic to Man United or Chelsea rumors have started.
    Even if the club secured a CL spot by winning the league, I'd want them to go out and win the Europa League if they ended up participating in it during the season. Ignoring any competition should never be an option.

    I don't think Chelsea are interested, at least not as much as Man Utd anyway.

    There were rumours months back that Bakayoko was essentially done, you'd of thought it would be announced by now if true, but I think it's probably close. Apart from that, van Diijk (not that interested personally, Christensen should be in the first XI next season imo) and Lukaku are probably the next most likely. I'd like a better striker than that ideally, but there just aren't that many about and they're in high demand, so..

    Apart from that i'd be looking at a couple of Italians. Conti is a solid wing back who's made for Conte's system and Bernardeschi who seems to be able to play anywhere.

    So that's 4 players (plus Christensen coming back from his loan spell). Seems pretty reasonable and addresses the areas we need to add to without going full Phil Neville world XI.

    Huddersfield up to the Prem then, well done to them. Klopp's mate should be good to have around too.

    Ernesto Valverde is the new Barcelona manager. Juan Carlos Unzue, the assistant of Luis Enrique and one of the favorites for this job will be managing Celta next season instead. All the best to both of them as well as Lucho wherever he ends up.

    Hopefully some La Masia players will get chances in the near future, but anyway, let the summer business begin.

    Unless they have the keeper situation under control and it looks like they do. Get certain deals locked down before other clubs sneak in.

    I'm sure Pepe provided a list.

    Whoever breaks Buffon's record transfer soon won't be anywhere as good as he has been. He is top 5 all time easily.
