TRANSFER BLOG = CLOSED

That, my transfer friends, is that. Thank you very much for following. We've agreed to join Kebab County on a 14-hour picture course but we'll be back right here from 08:00 BST on Saturday to do it all again. See you then.

Shawarma out.

BARCELONA STILL KEEN ON POGBA

Former Barcelona chief Joan Laporta claimed Ariedo Braida looked “ridiculous” by trying - and failing - to reach a deal with Juventus for Paul Pogba on Thursday, but Barca’s sporting director isn’t giving up.

"My friend [Giuseppe] Marotta, whom I hold great affection for, officially turned down the offer that I made,” Braida told Sport Mediaset. "However, we won't stop here. First, there are the club elections, and then we'll see about other moves."

MANCINI TALKS UP KONDOGBIA MOVE

Inter coach Roberto Mancini believes new signing Geoffrey Kondogbia can go on to emulate Andreas Iniesta and Yaya Toure. "Lots of players have really improved and the new players will continue that," he said. "Kondogbia can reach the same level of Iniesta and Yaya Toure."

MANCINI PRESS CONFERENCE

He’s already done some good business in the summer transfer window, and Roberto Mancini has his eye on more signings...

On transfer targets: "Perisic, Salah and Jovetic are all good players with excellent technical ability."

On Salah dispute: "As long as the situation is still unclear, we can't talk about Salah. He's a good player."

On Shaqiri/Santon: "We signed Shaqiri and Santon because we believe in them. Some players have to leave as we need a 25-man squad. I think they may perform well in the Premier League."

On Biabiany return: "Biabiany is an Inter player, he could stay with us. He made his debut with me years ago and if he's fit he can help us a lot."

COSTA WANTS ARDA AT CHELSEA

Basically, reading between the lines, he wants someone to make him a kebab.

"It would be fantastic," Costa told Bugun. "Arda makes everything so much easier out on the pitch. Arda, Filipe and I function perfectly. Arda is such a great person. He invited us to eat at his house many times; I really liked his kebab. The whole team would go round to his house for dinner."

HOLEBAS DEAL OFF?

Well this is an odd one. Both Roma and Watford have announced that Jose Holebas has joined the Premier League club... but it’s news to the player!

“They arranged my transfer without asking me,” he told gazzeta.gr. “I haven’t signed anything yet, I have to see the contract first. I don’t know why this has happened, I know that both Roma and Watford announced my transfer, but they’d have to talk to my representatives first.”
