Chelsea agreed to release Costa in a £76 million deal to the Chinese Super League club Tianjin Quanjian in January, but the move fell through due to a rule change by the authorities in China, who instituted a 100 per cent tax on all foreign transfers over $6.63 million to curb excessive spending by clubs.

Ibrahimovic -- who had won league titles with every club he had played for before joining United on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain a year ago - has made clear that he was disappointed to finish sixth with Mourinho's team last season.
Unleashing his strong arm, Kizer completed two long passes, including a 45-yard touchdown with 1:52 left as he rallied the Browns to a 20-14 win over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night. Cody Kessler was unremarkable on Thursday. "I could have had a sack, but it is what it is", Garrett said. Cleveland is atrocius against the spread as well which makes it even more hard to understand how or why they are favoured against anybody despite this one being in Cleveland and most of New ...
He chose to stay put and showed that he has the class to once again enjoy a fruitful season in the Premier League with a potential World Cup place up for grabs. The second half proved no less hurricane - Vardy after a corner again brought the Leicester forward, but at the end of the match the coach of "Gunners" Arsene Wenger gave two ideal substitutes: Ramsey and Giroud turned the game and allowed Arsenal for the first time in many years to open a season without losing points.

Guardiola will hope the well-publicised woe of Claudio Bravo has been addressed with the signing of Ederson from Benfica. Who could Chelsea replace Matic with? The new Manchester United midfielder started in the Super Cup final but how did he get on? An inability to break down weaker sides at Old Trafford and a failure to take chances were a huge frustration for Jose Mourinho .
But such was the maturity he showed during his first-team opportunities - notably in a 1-1 draw at Manchester United in January - that regular starter Nathaniel Clyne could soon be under pressure for his place. The Merseyside club has added two promising English players in goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from Sunderland and defender Michael Keane from Burnley , while Koeman looked closer to home to sign Netherlands midfielder Davy Klaassen from Ajax.
Huddersfield's last top-flight match was in April 1972 and also away at Crystal Palace , when these two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Selhurst Park.

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has told Arsene Wenger he'd like to be starting more games after netting a late victor in tonight's 4-3 thriller against Leicester City .

They have the Rams second-round pick and the Eagles third-round pick in addition to their own choices in those respective rounds. About the same time the Bills were trading away their No. 4 overall pick from 2013 ( Sammy Watkins ), they were also working on replacing him. He has pulled in at least 67 catches in each season he has been with the Eagles , and has missed only two games ...
