Atletico 'give up on Cavani'

Atletico Madrid have reportedly given up on Inter and Roma target Edinson Cavani, preferring to focus on Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik.

Atletico had been linked with Cavani for the past year and seemed to have agreed a deal for the Paris Saint-Germain striker in January.

However, the move fell through and AS reports the Spanish side are no longer pursuing him as they want Milik instead, offering him a €5m salary.

Man Utd blocking loans over Europa fears?

According to Sky Sport Italia, Manchester United and Chelsea are refusing to leave Alexis Sanchez, Victor Moses and Chris Smalling on loan to Inter and Roma for the Europa League.

Serie A bans for Week 29

Lorenzo Pellegrini, Jordan Veretout, Juraj Kucka and Ruslan Malinovskyi are among the players given a one-match Serie A ban, along with Verona coach Ivan Juric.
