  5. Mitrovic linked with Sporting


    Aleksandar Mitrovic

    Portuguese side Sporting Lisbon are interested in signing Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, report the Shield Gazette.

    However, Magpies manager Rafa Benitez does not have to sell this summer, and Sporting would struggle to tempt Newcastle to part with the 21-year-old, who cost £13m last year.

  6. PSG want Coutinho


    Philippe Coutinho

    French champions Paris St-Germain are preparing a staggering £46m bid for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho... if you believe newspapers.

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

    Gabon and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been voted as the German Bundesliga's Player of the Year award.

    The Gabon captain finished just 0.2% ahead of Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski, who was the top scorer in the league last season.

    The award is voted for by the German players' union, the VDV.

    "It's a great honour to be recognised and appreciated by your fellow colleagues," Aubameyang said.

  9. Euros missing XI



    Most of Europe's top players are now gearing up for the start of Euro 2016 after being named in their country's 23-man squad for the tournament.

    Injury has prevented the likes of Belgium's Vincent Kompany, France's Raphael Varane and Germany's Marco Reus from being involved.

    But other top names have been deemed surplus to requirements for the competition in France, which starts on 10 June.

  11. 'Sandro in talks with Sporting'



    QPR midfielder Sandro is in talks over a move to Sporting Lisbon, report Sky Sports.

    The 27-year-old Brazil international spent the second half of last season on loan at West Brom but failed to earn the offer of a permanent deal.

  12. Van Garderen drops out of Rio


    Tejay van Garderen will not compete at the Rio Olympics because of concerns about the Zika virus.

    The infection is suspected of leading to thousands of babies being born with underdeveloped brains. His wife is pregnant.

    “If Jessica were not pregnant right now, assuming I was selected, I would go,” the 27-year-old American told CyclingTips.

    “But the fact is, she is pregnant. If we were just going to start trying, I’d say we could start trying six months after the Olympics. But when she has a baby in her belly, I don’t want to take any chances.”

  13. I could have been Man Utd star - Hernandez


    Bayer Leverkusen striker Javier Hernandez says he could have been "the star" of Manchester United if he was given more games.

    The 28-year-old Mexico international spent 2014-15 on loan at Real Madrid and was then sold to Leverkusen, where he scored 17 goals in 28 Bundesliga appearances.

    "The difference is that Leverkusen want me on the pitch. The others didn't," he told FourFourTwo.

    "If I'd had more chances at United or Real, I'd probably have been 'the star' there as well - we'll never know. I didn't have the chance.

    "I never had the chance to play 20 games in a row so people could say: 'He's a good player who should stay' or 'He can't be the star - he's not a good player.'"

  15. David Haye: Pro boxers 'completely different animals'


    David Haye believes professional boxers could cause 'absolutely horrendous damage' to amateur fighters at the Olympic games after the International Boxing Association voted to allow pro fighters to compete at this summer's Games in Rio de Janeiro.

    Londoner Haye said: "I wouldn't like to fight an amateur. Even when I spar against one you can feel they're not seasoned, not toughened."
