Ibrahimovic looked likely to get a new contract until he was carried from the pitch in April.

"I knew Newcastle is a massive club", said the 29-year-old. In Kyle Walker and Benjamin Mendy, City will have the most potent tandem of wing backs in the Premier League, whilst Danilo will be no poor cover for Walker should he go down on the right. Most worrying were the defensive problems, with the organization of the offside line in shambles and responsible for both goals United conceded.

"I'm totally convinced that this season will be even better for him, and that playing in the Champions League against the best teams and players will take some pressure off him, because in the Europa League, he was obviously one of the two or three biggest stars". "The club did a fantastic job, absolutely fantastic, by getting three of them, which is difficult in the crazy market where we are now", he said.

Since 1997, the average home value in the postal district surrounding Tottenham's stadium has soared by 655%, from £59,638 in 1997 to £450,104 in 2017. That changes absolutely everything.

Alvaro Morata burst onto the mainstream in 2013, firing Spain to the U21 European Championships, but the 24-year-old has struggled for consistency since then. "Midfield players scoring goals, wingers scoring goals, central defenders good in the air scoring goals at set-pieces".
