Say bye, Sepp...

Nacho Monreal is yet to agree a new deal with Arsenal and has been linked with a move back to La Liga with Athletic Bilbao. However, he told Sport 360: "If the boss [Arsene Wenger] wants me to stay, I will do... I only have one more year left on my contract but I am in contact with the club."
West Brom boss Tony Pulis told the Express & Star: "We have got a few irons in the fire and we know the kind of players we want so it would be nice if we could get one or two done early. But I have been doing this job for long enough to know that it doesn't always happen like that."

We heard it from Jose Mourinho, and now the man himself... Diego Costa IS happy at Chelsea.
“[It is] quite a simple answer,” he told Chelsea TV. “It’s always a bit more difficult in the first season for adaptation, but I have no reason to leave this place, I love it, the fans love me and I want to stay.”
On Falcao: "I've got a lot of respect for Falcao. In any position he was, he kept doing his best, train extra hard. That's what a real professional does. Falcao is a fantastic football player. He'll always come back on top."
On 2014-15 season: "Ten goals in 26 league games: That's at least 7 goals short. But I think it's a compliment that people didn't accept it. Manchester United is a beast, and that has two sides. Manchester United is viewed and followed by more people than at other clubs and also more media. I have to deal with that. I made that choice and must accept the consequences."
Robin van Persie’s current deal with Manchester United expires in a year’s time... so what does his future hold? "It's a strange, difficult situation,” he said. “A new situation, that's a better word. I have to think on a realistic way. It's my ambition to play the next [few] years."
