"The fact that Bielsa was able to change Phillips so successfully provides a reason for optimism, because it wasn’t all down to the coach. "He has changed once, so theoretically he can change again." πŸ“ @NickMiller79 @MarkCarey93 theathletic.com/3494469/?sou…

Burnley have moved on from their interest in Rangers forward Fashion Sakala with the Zambian to remain part of Van Bronckhorst’s squad. They enquired about him, along with several other players, but no discussion followed as Rangers’ stance was clear. theathletic.com/3497662/2022…

It's been a busy summer for #CFC and it's set to remain that way over the next few weeks. The club continue to be linked with Wesley Fofana and Frenkie de Jong but Thomas Tuchel also wants reinforcements at right-back and upfront. πŸ“ @liam_twomey

Unless there’s a change of heart from Jurgen Klopp and sporting director Julian Ward regarding pursuing another option, Liverpool will look for solutions within the squad until players return to fitness rather than splashing more cash. πŸ“ @JamesPearceLFC

The likely addition of Adrien Rabiot fails to properly address issues Manchester United have progressing the ball from one penalty area to another. Wantaway Cristiano Ronaldo looks to be remaining, but the team could do with another reliable striker… #MUFC πŸ“ @Ankaman616
