Leeds United took another stride in preparations for the next season by announcing the signing of Samuel Saiz from Spanish club SD Huesca on Monday.
26-year old “Samu” Saiz (as he likes to be called) is an attacking midfielder who can also double up as a forward when required. Although the fee involved in the transfer has not been disclosed, Leeds are said to have paid £3 million to bring Saiz to Elland Road.
The player, who has previously come up the ranks of huge Spanish sides like Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, is expected to be a brilliant signing for Leeds manager Thomas Christiansen. Or at least that is what his old employers promise.
Just after Leeds announced Samu’s signing on Twitter, the official Twitter account of SD Huesca replied back claiming they will have fun with the player and gave best wishes to his new club for the next season.

It is said that your sleeping position tells a lot about your nature as a person, but for Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny, it is just a subject of banter for the entire world to see.
That the midfielder has an odd style of sleeping flat on his stomach became known to everybody after team-mate Danny Welbeck posted a picture of it on social media with the caption: “Really interesting choice of sleep position, Mo”
The picture was taken aboard their flight while Arsenal were flying to Australia for their upcoming pre-season tour spanning four games in total, including Bayern Munich and Chelsea fixtures.
Elneny and Welbeck seem to have become close buddies, as the former had also posted a selfie of the two in the same flight just before they left for their tour down under.

We all know of some football players who are said to possess superhuman capabilities, almost as if living in a realm of their own.
From Lord Nicklas Bendtner, to Andrea Pirlo as Chuck Norris, fans can get extremely creative in portraying their favourite players as superheroes.
But there appears to be some next-level out-of-the-world stuff going on at Tottenham, which seems to have brought two parallel worlds together, as far as Mousa Dembele is concerned.
The midfielder took to Twitter to post a picture of himself sweating it out during an indoor training session by lifting…well, himself!
The picture (that is just screaming to be subject of some hilarious memes in the upcoming days) depicts Dembele squatting with his hands up, as if lifting a superimposed version of himself performing push-ups.

If only transfer deals could be settled with a simple tweet containing the simplest but strongest of indications, Manchester United fans can expect their club to announce a big signing soon.
Ivan Perisic, who had tweeted a blue dot just before he signed for his current club Inter Milan in August 2015, has left United fans extremely excited by flashing a red one recently.
Despite over all the haggling over his price delaying the transfer deal, United are supposedly confident of land Perisic at Old Trafford in the coming days.
The 28-year old had also left fans guessing after he recently posted an Instagram picture of himself at an airport with the caption “destination unknown.”

West Ham’s entry into the summer transfer window is all set to be marked soon, if recent rumours are to be believed.
It has been stated that the Hammers have been showing renewed interest in Senegalese midfielder Badou Ndiaye, who is currently employed by Turkish side Osmanlispor.
Ndiaye, who has scored 16 goals over the last two seasons, is said to have caught the attention of many other English clubs apart from West Ham, most notables ones of which include Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Sunderland.
The Irons, as frontrunners for the 26-year old’s signature, are reported to have been asked by his current team to shell out at least £8.5 million to complete the transfer.
Ndiaye is relatively unknown to English football fans, but those who support West Ham will particularly want their manager to sign him for his celebrations alone, besides the aforementioned qualities.

Out of all old and traditional rivalries that the Premier League is replete with, the one shared between the two huge adversaries from Merseyside is historic.
Kopites and Evertonians have been at the brink of war ever since they jostled for bragging rights within the city of Liverpool. There have been 288 meetings between the two clubs since the 1962-63 season, making it the longest running top-flight derby in England.
For Liverpudlians, the decision of whether to be Red or to don Blue is one they all have to make once in their lifetime. But some Blues fans took it too far by spreading their influence all the way to Africa!
Everton travel to Tanzania as part of the Club’s 2017/18 pre-season schedule to play a match against Gor Mahia taking place at the 60,000-capacity National Stadium on Thursday 13 July.
And it seems the Everton fans are already present in the East African nation, making the locals aware of their tradition.

Maybe it is the fact that he is the most expensive player in the world, or just blame the way he carries himself, it is safe to say that Paul Pogba is an awesome person.
The Frenchman is known as an “agent” by Manchester United fans for his ability to meet up their transfer targets and get them signed up to play at Old Trafford.
Latest pictures of Pogba with United’s newest signing Romelu Lukaku seemed to reiterate his role as United’s front-man in convincing the latter to join him at Manchester.
The pair were spotted training at the University of California and holidaying together in Los Angeles ahead of the Red Devils’ pre-season tour of the United States.
And it seems that Pogba’s charm was not limited to just the training grounds, as a mysterious lady in pink appeared smitten by the midfielder.

The next season and all the challenges it will bring along may still be weeks away, but for Liverpool fans, it already began when their club completed the signing of Mohamed Salah.
The 25-year old has been the biggest source of optimism for Reds supporters in their belief that 2017-18 will bring some much-awaited silverware to the club.
Salah’s arrival to Anfield from Roma for £34.3 million last month was based on the confidence that manager Jurgen Klopp reposed in him, especially keeping in mind his speed and experience as game-changer.
Consider his stunning freekicks, for example. The Egyptian had single-handedly managed to secure a 1-0 win for his national side with a fiery strike from the spot during a group encounter against Ghana in the African Cup of Nations held earlier this year.
A single look at a video of the goal below will prove just why Salah should step up every time Liverpool win a freekick next season.

Apart from preparing for another arduous Premier League season that is set to kick off in a few weeks’ time, Newcastle United have also been busy with their kit launches.
After releasing their home kits for 2017/18, the Magpies’ away shirts have now been leaked online just days ahead of their official launch.
Featuring in pitch black and grey stripes, the Newcastle away kit designed by Puma are similar to their home shirts and name Fun88 as the main sponsors in the front.
Golden Puma logos can be seen on each sleeve and also beside the club’s special crest commemorating their 125th anniversary this year.
These stunning shirts will be complimented with black shorts and socks as well, which will just carry their kit suppliers’ logo on them.

While all clubs have been working overtime to make the most of the summer transfer window keeping in mind the next season that is looming over the horizon, Tottenham have also directed focus towards their new stadium.
The state of the art 61,000 seater arena, that is currently being constructed on top of what previously was the White Hart Lane, has been eagerly awaited by every Spurs fan.
What has also been the main contention of curiosity amongst supporters is the name of their new home, as the club had claimed that it would not be named after the old ground and that they were looking for a big sponsorship deal for the same.
One theory suggested that it would be named after Nike, as Sports Direct had apparently dropped a hint while introducing new Spurs kits.
But what seemed a little far-fetched then looks accurate now, as an official mail to fans has perhaps reiterated the claim that Tottenham might play in the Nike Stadium soon.
Once can be coincidence, but twice says something. Check out a screenshot of the reported mail below –
