Serbian lad. Played for Newcastle, didn't get on with Benitez. Went to Fulham on loan, helped them get into the PL, and now he's here on a permanent transfer.

Understand no major issue @ManUtd between Ed Woodward and Jose Mourinho. Still working hard re transfers. Acceptance 9 August deadline in WC year has made it harder. United one of the clubs who voted against.— Simon Stone (@sistoney67) July 30, 2018
The PL transfer window closes August 09- two weeks before the rest of europe. It will be interesting!
An agreement has been reached between AC Milan and Gonzalo Higuain's representatives.— Mootaz Chehade (@MHChehade) July 30, 2018
Just spoken to Charlie Stillitano, promoter of ICC event, re Jose’s comments after @ManUtd loss. Says he understands frustration but thinks 4-1 defeat exacerbated it. Says they will look at format in WC year. May change it next year so it ends with knockout phase.— Simon Stone (@sistoney67) July 30, 2018

I really thought I'd read that wrong. But I hadn't.

MLS peeps, what's the situation with this?
For those who came late: Crew is one of the founding teams in the MLS based in Colombus, Ohio. A new owner wants to shift it from Ohio to Austin. The thing is, he didn't tell the supporters what his ideas were until they'd bought non refundable (?) season tickets. The club is in a tug of war between the supporters who want it to stay in its orginal local, and the owner who wants to take it to Texas. This has been going on for over a season.

- "Cristiano is getting on a bit; it's a dangerous move by Juventus" “His salary is totally off the scale for Juve's means. I wonder whether it will be more of a commercial success than a sporting one. If you start paying crazy wages, sooner or later, it will start going against you”.
- Real Madrid refuse to let Kovacic leave despite player's protests The Croatian midfielder has told Lopetegui and his team mates that he is leaving but Madrid are adamant he is not for sale and will not listen to offers for him.
OP: Done. Any corrections, cheers and jeers, you know the drill!
