The Waiting Game
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is still patiently waiting on David De Gea to join Real Madrid, with L’Equipe claiming that Manchester United will snap up the Spurs stopper once he does.
He’s been waiting a while. He has. De Gea looked all but gone a couple of months ago, but he’s still at Old Trafford and plenty there believe he’ll stay. Lloris could end up being the one disappointed.

Lacazette To Liverpool (Again)
Alexandre Lacazette has seen his name linked with Liverpool yet again this summer, but the Reds appear unlikely to sign the Lyon forward after brining in Christian Benteke.
This one won’t go away. Quite. Lacazette is obviously a quality player, but the rumour mill needs to give this one up.
Januzaj The Black Cat
Manchester United’s Adnan Januzaj has been targeted by Sunderland for a season-long loan, with Louis van Gaal reportedly ready to do fellow Dutchman Dick Advocaat a favour.
That would make sense. It would. There is a danger that Januzaj’s career will stall if he stays at United, who are close to signing Pedro from Barcelona.
Adamant He’s Going To Villa
With Liverpool now not interested in the Barcelona winger Adama Traore, he appears set for a season-long loan move to Aston Villa.
Interesting. Yes. Traore is one of the most highly-rated youth talents in Spain, and who wouldn’t want to play for Tim Sherwood?!
Still Throwing Money At Stones
Everton are growing increasingly desperate in their attempts to keep hold of John Stones, who is edging closer to a £34m move to Chelsea.
That’s crazy. It is, but so’s everything else in the transfer market these days. Stones is a good player though, and will improve the champions’ squad.
