Jamie Vardy, 31, is leaving Leicester City for Atletico Madrid! That’s the shock news of the weekend. Or it’s a shock to Diego Simeone who knows nothing about it…
But not half as shocked as Thomas Tuchel will be when he finds out his first signing as Paris Saint-Germain coach is Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, 26.
No surprise that Juventus “confirmed” the signing of Liverpool midfielder Emre Can, 24.
Particularly as it’s claimed the Reds have almost nabbed Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir, 24, in a £60m deal.
Meanwhile, Juventus are set to return for Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin, 23. That’s if the north London club will sell him for £2.50 and not the £50m previously quoted.
Besiktas are monitoring Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos, 21, and will look to take him to Istanbul this summer.
James Collins, 34, had to search his spam bin to find out he’d been released by West Ham.
Crystal Palace reckon 25-year-old Fulham defender Ryan Fredericks is the answer although he probably won’t be if the Cottagers beat Aston Villa in the play-off final.
