Review of the Day

 

Transfers

Rober Pier, a young Spanish centre back will step up from the second tier in Spain to La Liga after joining Levante on loan from Deportivo La Coruna.

1.FSV Mainz 05 have continued to invest in their squad, with a £5.4m move for Moussa Niakhate from Metx in Ligue 1.

Bolton Deny Wages Claims

The chairman of Bolton Wanderers denies claims from the players, who have gone on strike, that wages are unpaid. Ken Anderson has said that all but one player has been paid their salary, but admits bonuses and 'loyalty fees' have not been paid yet. Anderson has hit back at the players, saying he will not be bullied or blackmailed. Not to sound confused, but if you owe someone money and you fail to pay it, are they not within their rights to take further action, such as strikes? It is not bullying to ask you to keep within the terms of the contracts that you signed off on. Anderson is busy trying to get the fans onside by blaming the players, but the fault is all on his side for not honouring his contractual obligations.

Juve Tease Fans With Number 7 Video

With hype over a move for Mr CR7 himself, Cristiano Ronaldo, building to fever pitch in Italy, including a leap in share price for Juventus due to the speculation, the Italian club released a video of number 7s on China's Weibo social media platform. The video consisted of six players who wore the number 7 for the club, with a space for one more at the end of the video, in what can only be seen as a tease towards the possible signing of the Portugese legend.
