Gone baby gone

Steps forward have been taken for a possible transfer of Danilo from Manchester City to Inter. In fact, the player has given his ‘yes’ to a move to Inter and is willing to give up a little bit in order to fulfill his dream. In Manchester he currently earns 4.5 million euros per season (for another three years), while at Inter he would receive 3.5 million for four or five seasons. Manchester City have not opposed a transfer of the player but are currently waiting until the end of the Premier League season to decide whether or not to accept Inter’s initial offer of 15 million plus bonuses.

Atleast he had heart

Burnley could allow Joe Hart to leave on a free this summer - with French clubs in the running to be the former England goalkeeper’s next destination. Sean Dyche snapped up Hart for £4million at the start of the season to cover for injuries to Tom Heaton and Nick Pope. But with the 32-year-old stuck on the bench following Heaton’s return, The Clarets are considering allowing Hart to leave to save on his wages which are high by Turf Moor standards.
