Joshua Kimmich wants regular football at 'fantastic' Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich full-back Joshua Kimmich says it is "fantastic" to be at the club but wants a regular starting spot under Carlo Ancelotti next season.The Germany international's future was placed in doubt towards the end of the 2016-17 season when he complained about a lack of opportunities in the starting line-up.

His comments led to speculation that he could reunite with former coach Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, while Manchester United and Atletico Madrid were also linked with a move.

"In the last two years, I played more times than a number of people had," he told L'Equipe. "I think I've developed my game and Bayern are one of the best three clubs in the world.

"Few players have the chance to become part of this club. It's absolutely fantastic to be part of Bayern. What's important now is to play. And, for the moment, I prefer to play at right-back than to be on the bench."

Reports: Wayne Rooney decides Manchester United future

Wayne Rooney’s future at Manchester United has been on tenterhooks for quite a while now – the record scorer for the Red Devils has not been in the best of form over the past couple of years. There is, though, still some fight left in the grizzled veteran if reports in the Sun are to believed.

The striker has a year left on his current contract but can trigger a 12-month extension option on his Β£300,000-a-week salary and is set to reject the proposed Β£10 million golden handshake (goodbye) that the United hierarchy had been planning.

Rooney, of course, had been linked with possible transfers to Stoke City, West Ham United, the money-laden Chinese Super League and most strongly with a return to boyhood club Everton where he burst on to the scene all those moons ago.

Has Mbappe dropped a huge hint about leaving Monaco?

Arguably the most sought-after player in Europe, Kylian Mbappe has prompted more frenzied speculation over his future after erasing Monaco from his Twitter profile. The 18-year-old striker announced himself as a force to be reckoned with last season, scoring 26 goals in all competitions to help Leonardo Jardim's team to win Ligue 1 and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Having also made his France debut in March, Mbappe has been heavily linked with Zinedine Zidane's Real Madrid, along with several other heavyweights clubs.It remains to be seen what the future holds for the young star, who - perhaps inadvertently - triggered a surge of fresh gossip upon making some alterations to his social media bio.

Alexis Sanchez won't be a Manchester City player.... but he is still likely to leave

Arsenal will reportedly not sell Alexis Sanchez to a direct Premier League rival like Manchester City. Pep Guardiola's side has been heavily linked with a move for the Chilean, but according to Mirror's Rob Draper, PSG are expected to be in the driving seat at the moment.

According to Rob Draper:  "Arsenal will tell Alexis Sanchez he will not be sold to Manchester City, meaning their pre-season is likely to be disrupted by the desire of the forward to join Pep Guardiola. Now they have the financial strength to refuse any bid, they will tell Sanchez to join a foreign club, with Paris Saint-Germain favourites, or see out the final year of his deal, when he can leave on a free."
