It’s already Sunday. Entering the last week of July, the summer transfer market is entering its zenith. Waiting for the domino effect that the departure of Kylian Mbappé may cause, the teams continue to work to improve their squads. Review the main sports covers of the day with our press review.

Pep Guardiola doesn’t get it. Despite having won a historic treble, demonstrating a hegemony in the Premier League and an overwhelming superiority in Europe, Manchester City cannot maintain its squad.

A gastroenteritis virus forces to cancel a friendly against FC Barcelona
