Joe Hart would take pay cut to join Liverpool, Juve in for James Rodriguez

ESPN FC's Ale Moreno not only breaks down the latest rumours, but also gives his Zaza penalty impression.

The summer transfer window is beginning to swing shut. Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse for the latest gossip ahead of deadline day. Follow our live blog below, and see the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Hart would take pay cut to join Liverpool

Joe Hart's time at Manchester City appears to be over after Pep Guardiola sealed the signing of Claudio Bravo from Barcelona on Thursday, and the England No. 1's options appear to be limited after Everton boss Ronald Koeman said he had...

Timbers and Sounders rivalry cranked up amid MLS playoff pressure

The ESPN FC crew discuss Portland Timbers' long rivalry with Seattle Sounders.

The volume control for the rivalry between the Portland Timbers and the Seattle Sounders has already gone to 11. There is simply no way for it to go "one louder" (though the tone will be altered in the absence of Clint Dempsey, who will miss out with an irregular heartbeat).

Or is there?

Sunday's tilt between these two longtime adversaries (5 p.m. ET, ESPN/WatchESPN) contains an element not often seen in this matchup, namely that both teams are fighting for their playoff lives. Portland is barely...

Arsenal hoping renewed sense of optimism lifts fog ahead of Watford

Arsene Wenger says he's '99 per cent confident' Arsenal will buy before the end of the transfer window, with deals close for Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits this has been a difficult transfer window for the Gunners, although their spending could soon reach 100 million pounds.
The ESPN FC crew discuss the rumours that Valencia's Shkodran Mustafi and Deportivo's Lucas Perez are set to sign for Arsenal.

Is the fog lifting at Arsenal? After a gloomy first couple of weeks to the season, a glimmer of optimism is beginning to appear among the fans. The news of two impending signings has revived hopes of a successful season. For now, though, the immediate focus is on securing a first victory of the campaign away at Watford.

It was always going to be a tricky start. The fixture list was far from kind to Arsene Wenger's men, handing them a home tie against Liverpool before a trip to champions Leicester....

Criticism of Klopp's Liverpool is fair, but calls for his sacking are far-fetched

The ESPN FC experts debate the proper grade for Jurgen Klopp's managerial performance thus far at Liverpool.

Modern football is an unforgiving sport. It used to be widely accepted that three seasons were required for any manager to put his own mark on a team. In the whole of the 1980s, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool had just three managers each. Leicester City, Tottenham and Chelsea had four. Manchester City had seven, and another seven in the 1990s, but that's the sort of club they were in those days, and frankly, football is all the poorer now that they're so much richer.

Generally speaking,...

Barca's busy summer in the market has made the squad deeper, hungrier

Jasper Cillessen hopes to make the No.1 goalkeeper choice a difficult one for Luis Enrique.
The draw for the Champions league saw Pep Guardiola's Manchester City be drawn in the same group as his former club Barcelona.

With a big smile on his face and his family sat at the back of the press room, Jasper Cillessen spoke about how "proud" he is to become the latest Dutch player to represent Barcelona under the ground at Camp Nou on Friday. The Netherlands international joined the club from Ajax for an initial fee of €13 million and will compete with Marc-Andre ter Stegen for a first-team place following Claudio Bravo's transfer to Manchester City

Cillessen is Barca's fifth signing of the summer...

Why UEFA will guarantee Champions League places to the top leagues

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno gives his thoughts as to UEFA's ruling adding more teams from the top leagues.

UEFA has approved structural changes to the Champions League, with the biggest move being automatic group stage qualification for the top four teams from the top four leagues, beginning in the 2018-19 season. Gab Marcotti looks at how this came about. 

Q: So all has been revealed. Europe's rich get richer. The top four leagues will all have four guaranteed spots in the Champions League group stage. It's official now, right?

A: This pretty much confirms what some of us had previously reported....
