The summer transfer window is open and across the globe there is a frenzy of speculation as players and coaches look for their next moves.
There is plenty of activity and stories that have football fans talking.
Here, we look at the latest transfer deals that could happen very soon.
Jesus, 21, has been a huge hit at the Etihad Stadium since linking-up with the Sky Blues from Palmeiras in January 2017.
He hit 17 goals in all competitions last season and is a key part of Pep Guardiola’s plans moving forward, so as such, it would take a huge effort and indeed large transfer fee for Barca to prise him away from the Premier League champions.
Lazio have lined up the Arsenal midfielder as a replacement for their Serbian star Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, who is expected to make a big move after the World Cup.
Ramsey, who has just one year left on his contract with the Gunners, very much fits the bill.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, Lazio will step up their interest in the 27-year-old Wales international in the coming weeks.
The talented Aston Villa star has decided to leave his boyhood club this summer, The Mirror reports.
The Midlanders failed to secure promotion back to the Premier League under manager Steve Bruce, losing in the Championship Play-Off final to Fulham.
Tottenham have been chasing the 22-year-old versatile midfielder while West Ham have also shown interest in his services.
Grealish apparently wants to take the next step in his career and ply his trade in the top division.
Hector Cuper has left his position as Egypt coach in the wake of their World Cup exit.
The Argentinian and his backroom staff have left their roles after their contracts expired following the 2-1 defeat to Saudi Arabia on Monday, the Egyptian Football Association confirmed to Press Association Sport.
“Today, the EFA met and thanked all the coaching staff,” the EFA said in a statement.
Egpyt failed to register a point in Russia, losing their opening two Group A matches to Uruguay and the host nation.
Cuper, the former Valencia and Inter Milan coach, was named Egypt boss in March 2015 and he led the team to the final of the 2017 African Nations Cup, where they lost 2-1 to Cameroon.
He then guided Egypt to their first World Cup finals in 28 years, but, with star player Mohamed Salah clearly not fully fit following the shoulder injury he suffered in Liverpool’s Champions League final loss to Real Madrid, their time in Russia was an unhappy one.
The two-time champions were less than five minutes away from elimination when Manchester United defender Rojo became their unlikely saviour, volleying home Gabriel Mercado’s cross to seal a 2-1 success.
Having drawn with Iceland and been comprehensively beaten by Croatia, Argentina were in must-win territory and had been on course for an early exit when Victor Moses’ penalty cancelled out Messi’s brilliant opener.
However, Rojo’s volley spared their blushes and booked a clash with France in the next phase.
“We have suffered a lot because it was a difficult situation,” Messi told a post-match press conference.
“There was a lot at stake and of course it was a huge relief for all of us.
“It was a difficult match because of the results before and many other things that have been said. We knew it was going to be difficult but fortunately we have achieved our aim.
“We didn’t think that we were going to suffer as much as we have. We were quite confident that we would be able to go through and fortunately it became true.”
Messi was in danger of leaving Russia without making any positive contribution until he delivered a timely reminder of his brilliance.
Collecting a long pass from Ever Banega on his thigh in the 14th minute, he knocked the ball into space before firing home Argentina’s opener with his unfavoured right foot.
Though Messi may have been upstaged by Rojo in the end, coach Jorge Sampaoli was delighted to see his star man come to the fore.
“The most important thing for Leo, I think, is his human side; it’s amazing,” he said.
“He’s a person who feels, who cries, who suffers, who’s happy when Argentina wins. I know him – I’ve seen him happy, sad, in crisis times, in positive times.
“Many people say that Leo does not enjoy playing for Argentina but I don’t agree. He enjoys it and suffers like all the other players.. That makes him even bigger.”
In the end it was the Nigerian players who were left suffering.
Yet the Super Eagles felt Rojo should have been punished for handball in the box just prior to his winner, with referee Cuneyt Cakir ignoring their protests after consulting a video replay.
“I don’t understand how that wasn’t a penalty,” said Nigeria skipper John Obi Mikel.
“For me, it was a clear handball. If you look at the game yesterday, Portugal, that wasn’t even close to this. This was even worse – very open. He headed the ball and it hit his hand.
“Maybe the referee has given the first penalty, he doesn’t want to give the second one. But a penalty is a penalty. If it’s a penalty, you can still give a penalty.
“We’ve seen it again in the dressing room, it was a clear penalty. There wasn’t any way the referee could not give that. He looked at the VAR. I asked him, ‘Did it hit the hand?’ He said ‘Yes’. But why it’s not a penalty…he said he doesn’t know.”
