5:40pm UPDATE: Maurizio Sarri plots Chelsea raid
Chelsea duo Jorginho and Emerson Palmieri are wanted at Juventus by new Allianz Stadium gaffer Maurizio Sarri.
Sarri quit Chelsea for Juventus over the weekend after spending just 11 months in the Stamford Bridge hotseat.
He is eager to prise two stars away from the Blues in order to bolster the squad Massimiliano Allegri left behind.
The Times claim Sarri has urged Juventus chiefs to build on his arrival by launching bids for both Jorginho and Palmieri.
5:10pm UPDATE: Arsenal chiefs handed order
Arsenal hero Robert Pires wants Unai Emery to be given more than the £40m he has to spend this summer.
“If you want to build a good team, you need to spend a lot of money, especially in the Premier League,” Pires said.
“I respect Arsenal’s position and the owner, but everybody knows that if you want to win the Premier League, you need to spend a lot of money.
“All the top clubs want to sign great players, but if you want a great player it costs a lot of money.”
4:40pm UPDATE: Paul Pogba wants to leave because of Liverpool
Paul Pogba is eager to quit Manchester United because of how far the Red Devils are adrift of Liverpool and Manchester City.
That is the opinion of former Premier League star Craig Burley, who said: “The reason is, one he’s had a lot of stick, two the club doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and three, they’ve named a manager who isn’t [established] and they’ve not made any signings and don’t look like they’re going to be making much headway, certainly early in the transfer market.
“So therefore he’s thinking: ‘Well are we going to track down Liverpool and Man City or am I going to have another year of a couple of average signings? And everybody says: ‘Paul Pogba’s not playing well again’.'”
4:10pm UPDATE: Neymar to Man Utd
Manchester United are being touted as suitors for Neymar if the Brazil international calls it a day at Paris Saint-Germain.
Neymar is one of the most famous faces on the planet with legions of fans eager to set their sights on him on the flesh.
United supporters might do just that one day if Sport are to be believed, with Old Trafford supposedly a possible destination.
The Spanish newspaper reckon Neymar could head for Real Madrid or Juventus, but that a return to Barcelona would be a problem from a financial perspective.
