Coutinho faces Barcelona axe

The club believes the Brazilian is "not a Barcelona player"

Philippe Coutinho is set to be sold by Barcelona after his awful display in the club's Champions League defeat to Liverpool, according to ESPN FC.

Coutinho struggled in the semi-final against his former club, leading a club source to tell ESPN FC that "Coutinho is not a Barcelona player, that's been made clear."

Lukaku set for talks to determine future at Man Utd

Solskjaer is planning on the striker being part of his squad next season, but United could offload the Belgian should he express a desire to leave.

Godin agrees three-year Inter deal

Diego Godin has agreed a three-year contract with Inter worth €6.5 million per season, reports ESPN FC.

Chelsea yet to hold contract talks with Hudson-Odoi

Chelsea are yet to hold talks with Callum Hudson-Odoi over a new contract as the club continues to ponder his future, according to the Daily Mail.

Despite his serious achilles injury at the end of the season, Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Manchester United are still monitoring Hudson-Odoi's situation.

Southampton planning £30m Mitrovic move
