FC Barcelona linked to Julian Brandt
Marca has claimed that FC Barcelona are monitoring the situation of Julian Brandt at Bayer Leverkusen.

Brandt has been linked with Liverpool in the past with the 21-year-old being considered as the future of German football.

Harry Kane open for a move to Real Madrid
After reports emerging of the European champions preparing a €200 million bid for Premier League's most in-form striker, Harry Kane, the Englishman has now given his view on the interest from Spain. During England's press conference, Kane said, "I would never say no or yes. You'd not rule out anything. It's not something I definitely want to do, but you never rule anything out. I'm very happy here at Tottenham but we'll see what happens." This statement must have rung alarm bells at the Spurs headquarters.
