End of an association

Danny Welbeck has played his last game for Arsenal, with the club announcing his impending departure after Sunday’s 1-1 draw against Brighton. The England striker has been sidelined since November when he suffered a broken right ankle in the Europa League tie against Sporting Lisbon, the striker falling awkwardly when attempting to meet a cross.

The end of an era

Cavani to Manchester?


Real Madrid are pessimistic about landing their No 1 target Paul Pogba for manager Zinedine Zidane.

Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is skilled in forcing through deals but United are so insistent about digging their heels in that a solution is unlikely this summer.
