    The first week of the transfer window has been hectic so far and we may have one of the most controversial transfers in the history of the Premier League. Harry Kane has left Tottenham to join bitter rivals Arsenal after his £69m buy-out clause was triggered earlier in the week.

    Throughout the off-season we heard lots of rumours after Bergkamp and Henry's comments about investing in a top class striker during the summer, the top five candidates were Griezmann, Dybala, Lacazette, Lukaku and Morata but not for a minute did anyone think they could pull off Harry Kane, nothing suggested the English forward would be moving but here we are. He signed a new contract recently however a buy-out clause was inserted into it allowing any Champions League club the ability to trigger his £69m clause, Spurs could do nothing about it. Kane is expected to get the no.12 shirt after signing a 5 year deal earning £190k/week.

    The transfer will remind many Spurs fans of the time Sol Campbell swapped camps and what an influential player he was the Gunners, and once again the Tottenham fans are not happy one bit, Spurs and Arsenal are set to face each other in December and what a game that will be if Harry Kane is involved.

    In other news
    • After spending 6 months at the club, Tammy Abraham has joined Brentford on a season long loan, Dennis Bergkamp felt the striker needs more minutes and he cannot give him that at the club right now, Abraham is expected to cause havoc in the Championship this season.
    • News coming from Portugal suggest Arsenal have agreed a deal to bring the Spanish left-back Alex Grimaldo from Benfica to North London, the deal will involve Jon Toral going the other way along with a fee of £13m. Monreal is expected to take a back-seat in the upcoming season with Gibbs and Grimaldo fighting for a starting spot.
    • Javi Martinez moves back to Spain to join Real Madrid in a £30m deal, the central defender has had a troubling time in Germany after suffering long term injures, Madrid will hope they can get him back on track to becoming one of the best defenders in the world.
    • Manchester City capture the highly rated Turkish playmaker Hakan Çalhanoğlu from the Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen, a £26m fee has been agreed between both clubs and Guardiola will hope he can get his team fighting for the Premier League this season.

    I feel like I'm at a disadvantage being at least eight hours behind. A lot has happened with some pretty good results. After pondering for many many seconds, I guess I'll take Welbeck again for my player sponsoring, although he's likely to be transferred in the next window. :D

    Yeah I focused on him with the player training and gave him many opportunties during the season, he's just about 21 years old now and is 79 rated, really good
    :o :o :o Did not see that coming!
    That was my aim, I wanted to throw a curve ball and create a cool storyline and taking my main rivals best player is a good one ;)

    Yeah I see where you are coming, there are still some big stuff happening in the market, since you comment a lot and keep up with my story I'm going to let you have my next big signing since everyone else has taken the main players, it's up to you, Welbeck won't get much time since I'm moving him as the LM/LW backup now.

    Arsenal have failed to keep hold of one of their best players, Hector Bellerin has forced a move out of the club as Arsenal cash in after asking clubs to break the defender transfer record. Bellerin was edging a move to Spain with both Barcelona and Real Madrid interested but it seems Atletico Madrid were the team to capture him after personal talks with manager Diego Simeone.

    It all began last season when Arsenal offered their key players contract extensions, the likes of Ozil and Sanchez extended but Bellerin stood strong, he was earning £69k a week and the club originally offered him £99k, a couple of months later it was increased 50% and eventually rose to £200k, the player and agent stood their ground and Arsenal agreed to sell for the right price. Now the North London club will look to replace him as soon as possible with several players being linked such as Aurier, Florenzi, De Marcos, Hysaj and Joao Cancelo.

    In other news
    • Arsenal have sold Daniel Crowley to Coventry City for a small fee of £400,000. The central midfielder came with so much promise however his development has stalled and Arsenal have lost patience with him, the club wish him the best and now he has a chance to prove himself at a lower league side.
    • Manchester United splash the cash once again, last summer it was Pogba, this summer they targeted Griezmann and they got their man, £84.5m is the reported fee and Griezmann will come to the Premier League with a lot of promise and hype with him, can Mourinho get the best out of the Frenchman?
    • Atletico Madrid have already spent some of the Griezmann money as they bring in German centre-back Niklas Süle from Hoffenheim for £24m. Atletico are known for their incredible defence and hope he can prove to be a good partner for Godin in the upcoming season with reports in Spain suggesting Gimenez is forcing a move to Bayern Munich, more on this later.

    @JamieC Since you reserved Bellerin I'll give you first dibs on his direct replacement

    Yeah many of the fans might not like him very much but the majority are basically taunting Spurs with this song because he also started at Arsenal (he was an academy player at 8 years of age but left after a season):
    He's one of our own,
    He's one of our own,
    Harry Kane,
    He's one of our own
    ManU buying up all the strikers again :D gonna be tough to replace Bellerin but to get that price for him is impressive.
    Yep I think Ibrahimovic may have left I'm not sure that might be the reason for buying Griezmann, either way I'm scared of their attack! I knew I was going to lose Bellerin so it was basically how much I could get for him, they offered £39m I looked up the most expensive defender (Luiz/Stones at £50m) so I wanted more and asked for £55 ad they agreed so fair play

    Love a bit on controversy! Yeah you can have Koscielny, Perez is basically the main back-up striker so he could come on as a sub or play when Kane is not fit enough, can see Koscielny picking up more points though so I'll change that for you

    Arsenal move fast to replace Hector Bellerin and they have got their man, Alessandro Florenzi travelled from Rome to North London earlier today to complete his medical after clubs agreed on a £25m fee, the 26-year old looks to be signing a 5-year deal with the player earning £120k/week with him expecting to fit straight into the starting eleven, the player will not travel for Arsenal's final pre-season fixtures however. This is Dennis Bergkamp's second signing of the summer and he looks to be going for well established players, first Kane now Florenzi, who will be next?

    In other news
    • Arsenal academy graduate Marco Lucero has been sent out on loan to Bolton for the season, Arsenal assistant manager Thierry Henry commented on the player saying, "He really needs this, we have massive belief in him and think he will be a future world class player, this is his first true test".
    • After a disappointing end to the season, Liverpool finishing 6th in the table and missing out of Champions League football once again, Coutinho calls it quits as Barcelona come calling with a £63.5m offer, Liverpool were reluctant to sell but the Brazilian forced his way out in the end, he will be a big miss the for but with Iniesta coming to his closing stages of his career, Coutinho will bring something fresh to the team.
    • As reported earlier Gimenez was keen on a move to Bayern Munich and he has flown in for a medical today with a reported fee of £23m being agreed with both clubs, remember Bayern sold Javi Martinez earlier in the window so a young strong centre-back will directly replace him.
    • Stoke City have shocked many with his one, the highly rated Porto midfielder Ruben Neves has complete a move to the Premier League side for a ridiculous small fee of £8.5m, he has a lot of hype around him a year ago but it has all died down since after many short injuries and poor performances, the stage is set for him to show the world what he is made of this year.

    Arsenal beat CSKA but at a cost as Harry Kane goes off injured 40 minutes into his debut!

    Sanchez seals the pre-season trophy with incredible double
    uXLDBYS.png

    Dennis Bergkamp: I'm furious with the way CSKA Moscow where playing, this is a pre-season tournament not a wrestling match, they were awfully physical and from my point of view they looked like they were enjoying what they were doing, Kane has injured his shoulder and he looks like he will miss up to 2 months, I'm hoping he will be back for the start of September so he'll just miss maybe three league fixtures, we'll have to see.

    Let's put it straight: it's Aaron Ramsey's fault, as he scored. Kane could consider himself lucky to still be alive! :joy:

    Jokes apart, it's sad to see Kane injured so bad and so early, after only 40 minutes from his debut. :(
    On a positive note, Aaron scored! :)
