As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to the latest rumours and gossip. See all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Neymar buyout going up after United interest

Not many people truly believe Manchester United will land Neymar this summer, though Barcelona seem to be suitably irked by the continued rumours that they feel the need to ensure the forward's future lies at the Camp Nou.

The Daily Mail reports that Barca will offer the Brazil captain a new five-year contract...

Barcelona aim for Champions League history but a repeat won't be easy

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes look ahead to the Champions League campaigns for Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich.

Champions League title-holders Barcelona will start their chase for their sixth big-eared trophy by facing Bayer Leverkusen, Roma and BATE Borisov in the group stage of the 2015-16 Champions League. With due respect to all of the Catalans' rivals, the truth is that the draw could have certainly been much harsher with Luis Enrique's men given that Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal could have crossed their paths instead.

In theory, Bayer will be the strongest rival in Barca's way to the...

Neymar's look-alike causes a stir by signing for Irish minnows

For a split second it looked for all the world as though Irish Premier League side Limerick FC had pulled off the most unlikely transfer coup of all time on Thursday afternoon.

Having added several new faces to their U17 National League squad, one particular addition to the Limerick youth ranks raised a few eyebrows.

Indeed, it looked for all the world as if the Irish club had somehow beaten Manchester United to secure the signature of Barcelona star Neymar.

Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Manchester City lead the Power Rankings

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno gives his take on the slow starts for both Barcelona and Real Madrid and believes there should be more concern at the Bernabeu than at Camp Nou.

They're back! Shaka Hislop returns with his first Power Rankings of the 2015-16 season.

1. Barcelona 

They had mixed fortunes in the Super Cups -- winning the UEFA version but losing the Spanish -- but Barca got their Liga season off to a winning start and remain the team to beat both in Spain and in Europe. Their squad will be tested over the first half of the season especially, though.

2. Bayern Munich

After cruising to a 5-0 win on the opening day of the Bundesliga season, Bayern managed...

Thomas Vermaelen climbs the pecking order among Barcelona's defenders

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno gives his take on the slow starts for both Barcelona and Real Madrid and believes there should be more concern at the Bernabeu than at Camp Nou.
Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique has appeared to rule out Neymar moving to Manchester United
FC Barcelona exorcised their Super Copa demons with a hard-fought victory over Athetic Bilbao at San Mames.
Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique insists Barca can cope with the departure of Pedro, despite his side's ongoing transfer ban.

For nine months, it felt like Thomas Vermaelen's only job at Barcelona was to be the butt of cruel jokes.

Almost as soon as he had signed for the Catalans last August, it was confirmed that the Belgian was injured and required time on the treatment table, a scenario that would continue throughout the majority of his first season at the Camp Nou.

Somewhat inevitably, there were supporters at his former club Arsenal who laughed, while plenty of Barcelona fans did, too.

The injury-troubled player was...

Barcelona must replace Pedro with talent from La Masia

Barcelona midfielder Pedro Rodriguez explains his reasons for leaving his boyhood club to join Chelsea in the Premier League this past week.

Barcelona have an obvious lack of depth up front following Pedro's departure from the club that raised him to join former Blaugrana employees Jose Mourinho and Cesc Fabregas at Chelsea.

As the Tenerife-born forward knows only too well, the Catalans' imposing front line of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar is second-to-none in the history of football, and unless they're injured or banned, the three are bound to feature in every game for the remainder of the season.

However, manager Luis Enrique...
