Mignolet is a great swoop for Liverpool, if they can tighten up their defence in the summer with the loss of Carragher I can see him being in a lot of FF teams.
City clearing out the mercs might well help to bring stability to the club, expecting Nasri to not last much longer.
Zinedine Zidane announced as assistant coach to Ancelotti. Still no transfer news.
EDIT: Disregard, Florentino Perez has just announced they have reached an agreement with Isco and Malaga. The player will undergo a medical and is to be presented next week.

Steven Smith re-signs at Rangers on a 2 year deal subject to player registration on 1st September having been released from Portland Timbers & Richard Foster joins Rangers after playing here on loan in 10/11 after negotiating his release from Bristol City, again subject to registration, both players can appear in up to 3 games before then as trialists.
Celtic appear to have lost the battle to keep Victor Wanyama, despite being "linked" with Arsenal, Man Utd and suchlike over the past 2 years it's looking likely he'll head to some random no hope team in the Premiership, clearly all those "links" to every team & their dug were by his agents, it was comical though, every bloody week he was going to one of the top 4 in the Premiership! Apparently they accepted a bid from Southampton which Wanyama rejected personal terms on, clearly his agents have filled his head and he believes their hype.
Greg Wylde who left Rangers on their entry into administration has been released from Bolton Wanderers and signs at Aberdeen - talk about a mighty stepdown, Rangers to Aberdeen in 18 months, I know I'm biased but that's a long drop right there!

I am really happy that Real gonna have Ancelotti and Zidane on the bench. It will finally regain the club respect and class they totally lost during those 3 years under Mourinho. I still cant understand how one person can fully ruin such club's image in just 3 years...
Isco has signed a 5 year contract at Real Madrid, to be presented 3rd of July at the Santiago Bernabeu.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/23083753 I reckon united will get him, but 12 million seems a bit cheap, maybe 16mil, he's 28 so not that young, evra is 32 now, still seems solid otherwise.
United won't pay over the hill for him. I'm expecting £15 mil will be their limit to shift him. Good pick up for a left back in the short term, but Moyes will still need someone to fill the role again in 3-4 seasons time.
Norwich have reached a deal with PSV Eindhoven for Ola Toivonen for an undisclosed sum.

Brazil midfielder Paulinho is keen to complete a move to Tottenham following the conclusion of the Confederations Cup.
Paulinho is currently playing a starring role for his country, heading in the winning goal against Uruguay to help Brazil reach the final of the World Cup warm-up event.
While he is focused on tomorrow's clash with Spain at the Maracana, Paulinho is almost certain to leave Corinthians this summer and Spurs would be his preferred destination.
The 24-year-old said earlier in the week that the north London club had tabled a bid for him, and admitted White Hart Lane is a desired option as he would relish working with boss Andre Villas-Boas and the influential Gareth Bale.
"It is important for the team and for the Brazilian fans that at the moment all my focus is on winning the Confederations Cup," he said in the Daily Mirror.
"But after the tournament is finished I hope it is a deal that can get finalised quickly.
"To play in England for a great team like Tottenham is a dream. What I respect about Tottenham is the ambition they have shown.
"This summer there has been interest in their coach and their best player - and they have been clear they are both not going anywhere."

Shit like this actually goes through your fucking brain?
Doran Goian & Carlos Bocanegra released by mutual consent from Rangers - £2m off the wage bill this year - both had spent last year on loan in Italy & Spain respectively, Goian looking for a move to England, Bocanegra looking to move back to MLS to wind down his career.

Swansea have resigned De Guzman on loan from Villareal for another season. Surprised Villareal didn't request they make a transfer offer instead.
Marko Marin on loan to Sevilla
nice move for us but not enough to compensate the loss of Navas
Real Madrid and Real Socidead negotiating the transfer of Illarramendi.
I don't get it, why are we buying talents? I thought we only bought superstars. If this happens, Barcelona should be very afraid next season. All these Spanish supertalents, gonna be great.
