Neymar Jr is “tired” of all the speculation about his future with Paris St-Germain, but without an ounce of self-awareness, fanned the flames by announcing he would wait until after the World Cup to decide his future…

One man quite comfortable speculating about the future is Maurizio Sarri. When he leaves Napoli for Chelsea, Gonazlo Higuain, 30, will be his first target.

He’s not the only one leaving the San Paulo; Kalidou Koulibaly, 26, is heading for Arsenal in a £53m deal.

He’ll be the first signing of the Mikel Arteta era. The Manchester City is favourite to take over as Gunners boss when Pep said he just wanted the best for the perfectly coiffured coach.

Manchester City are in talks with Leicester City on a constant basis about Riyad Mahrez, 27. Apparently, the two clubs didn’t stop talking even though the January deal fell through.

Martin Dubravka, 29, is hoping to convince Rafa Benitez that paying Sparta Prague a £5m fee is better business for Newcastle United than giving the money to Liverpool for Simon Mignolet, 30.

Wilf Zaha, 25, assured Crystal Palace fans that he has no intention of doing one this summer.

And Abel Hernandez, 27, has a fashion decision to make. Does he prefer the old Gold of Wolves or will he look fetching in a kilt at Celtic?
