Suarez sees a psychiatrist

Just about everyone has given their opinion on Luis Suarez this summer following his ban for biting Giorgio Chiellini - even the president of Uruguay.

Jose Mujica believes the striker, now at Barcelona, needs medical help from a psychiatrist, not punishment as severe as handed out by Fifa, who have banned Suarez from so much as entering a stadium during his suspension.

Mourinho gives Chelsea an Atleti makeover

Filipe Luis's arrival at Chelsea was officially confirmed on Friday, making the left-back the second player to swap Atletico Madrid for Stamford Bridge this summer - third, if you count Thibaut Courtois's loan coming to an end.

With Diego Simeone's side having surprised the footballing world by holding off the Clasico giants to win La Liga last season and the Blues finishing off the pace in the Premier League, it looks like Jose Mourinho is trying to recapture that spirit in England this season.

Having also snatched centre forward Diego Costa away from the Estadio Vicente Calderon this summer, Chelsea's new faces may have to pinch themselves for a moment before they realise that they have, in fact, changed clubs.

Mourinho & Wenger serenade in-demand Khedira

After initially looking like leading the race for Sami Khedira, Arsenal have fallen behind Chelsea in the race to sign the Real Madrid man.

Reports suggested high wage demands put off the Gunners but Arsene Wenger will hope he can still attract the World Cup winner to the Emirates Stadium.

You might be thinking: Chelsea surely don't need another midfielder but you'd be wrong, of course. Here's why he'd make the perfect fit for Jose Mourinho's team and why Wenger may actually get fortunate if Arsenal don't land the 27-year-old.

Pirl-d'oh! Allegri takes over at Juventus

After Antonio Conte's shock departure from Juventus, the Italian champions have moved swiftly to appoint former AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri.

The news might not go down too well with every member of the bianconeri's squad, though, especially a certain Andrea Pirlo, who worked under the new Juve boss at San Siro.

The Italy international, however, was deemed too old by his former team, and manager, and offered only a short term deal, prompting him to leave the club on a free transfer.

Pirlo has since won three back-to-back Serie A titles, while Allegri was sacked by Milan, and both will hope their relationship can be more productive this time.
