Bayern Munich, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool all interested in signing Adama Traore (le10sport)

Adama Traore has lit up the English Premier League this season - with his electrifying pace, dribbling ability and matured end-product causing opposition players all kinds of nightmares. Therefore, the Spaniard has been linked away from his current club Wolves, to teams like Bayern Munich and Manchester United — teams in the upper-echelon’s of European football. If Adama were to be signed, he would likely command a fee upwards of €75M.

Real Madrid want Alphonso Davies to replace Marcelo (Don Balol)

Oh mighty Don, what would we do without you? The Don alleges that Real Madrid want Alphonso Davies to be their next galactico superstar. The teenage (!) left-back has shocked the world this season, displaying countless incredible performances, the likes of which are only expected by seasoned veterans.

However, as the Don is reporting this, interest from Madrid is truly concrete and there is unfortunately a strong likelihood that Davies will end up at the Santiago Bernabau in the near future...

Average playing time in each game of the Bundesliga up (Ralph Honigstein)

Very interestingly, in every Bundesliga game from the past match day, the net playing time was significantly higher than usual — that is, there were fewer stoppages and interruptions in play. This suggests that many of the interruptions that happen (e.g fouls, time spent getting balls back in play etc...) are connected to the presence of the crowd.

PSG want to sign Aubameyang (le10sport)
