However, the weekend's action is yet to take place and with the summer window creeping ever closer, clubs across the globe are refining their transfer plans in regards to who they would like to sign and sell.

Liverpool, for example, have been dealt a huge blow in their pursuit of Xabi Alonso - their dream Jurgen Klopp replacement. The Spaniard has announced that he will stay at Bayer Leverkusen, forcing the Reds to shift their focus onto different targets, such as Roberto de Zerbi and Ruben Amorim.

The latter offered a tantalising answer when quizzed about Liverpool's interest, teasing that fans "will soon see what happens." The Portuguese coach reportedly has a €15 million release clause in his Sporting CP contract.

In other news, Barcelona have been priced out of signing Joao Cancelo permanently from Man City. The Blaugrana are desperate to keep hold of the 29-year-old, but their chances of achieving this appear to be fading.
