Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Man City reverse course on Fernandinho

Spurs could trigger Gulacsi release clause

Tottenham have started to think about life after Hugo Lloris, with RB Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi seen as an affordable, experienced replacement, writes Bild.

Moultrie sues NWSL for right to play

Fulham seek scouting director

Chelsea rejected two Kante offers

Chelsea turned away two transfer offers for N’Golo Kante last summer worth more than £43 million (€50m/$60m), says Fabrizio Romano, with the board seeing no reason to sell one of the best defensive midfielders in the world.

Man City change mind on Fernandinho (Daily Mail)

The veteran midfielder might not leave the club after all

Manchester City may reverse course from their plan to let Fernandinho leave, with the club now considering him too essential in the dressing room, according to the Daily Mail.

The Brazilian started in Tuesday's Champions League semi-final second leg vs Paris Saint-Germain and demonstrated he can also still be of use on the pitch with his performance in a winning effort.

Fernandinho reportedly could also be convinced to stick at Manchester City after retirement as a staffer, where his leadership could continue to have an impact on young players.
