Transfer updates in the hot summer market

Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has questioned whether Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola can deliver success in the Premier League.

He told the Sunday World: “We all thought it would be Guardiola v Mourinho doing battle at the top of the Premier League last season, but these two great managers never even came close to getting into the title mix.

“In the end, Guardiola and Mourinho were comfortably overshadowed by Antonio Conte at Chelsea and Mauricio Pochettino at Tottenham, so they will be under big pressure when from day one next season because they are working for owners who expect to be challenging for the title.

“The record these two guys have confirms they are great managers, but they have probably taken on the biggest challenges of their career in these two jobs and it remains to be seen whether they are up to the task.”

 Liverpool are actively seeking to offload winger Lazar Markovic.
The Serbia international has struggled to work his way into Jurgen Klopp’s plans, and the arrival of Mohamed Salah has relegated him further down the pecking order.
“With Lazar, it’s no secret that if he finds a club then we will negotiate. It was like this last year too,” Klopp told the Liverpool Echo.

“He’s a really good player. I like him as a person.
“He’s now fit and another one who is in the best shape since I’ve known him.
“Before he had problems with his groin but now he’s good. There will be a club out there who needs him.”Neymar has told Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez he will snub a move to Paris Saint-Germain and remain at Barcelona.

Neymar has rocked Barcelona by looking to quit the club in a stunning world-record move to PSG.
Express Sport understands the Brazil superstar had agreed a staggering contract worth over £500,000-a-week at the French giants, who are ready to meet his £196m release clause. But according to Spanish newspaper Sport, Neymar has now agreed to STAY after a lengthy chat with Barcelona team-mates Messi and Suarez.
