Demiral reassured by Juventus?

Juventus are reportedly easing the pressure on Merih Demiral by looking to tie him to a new deal this summer, but his recovery comes first.

The defender had stepped up when the Bianconeri needed it the most and cut a promising figure in the heart of the defence.

He basically replaced Matthijs de Ligt and partnered Leonardo Bonucci until he injured his ACL during a 2-1 win against Roma and was ruled out for the rest of the season.

Hakan Sukur: 'I'm an Uber driver now'

Former Inter, Torino, Parma and Galatasaray forward Hakan Sukur confessed he is now an Uber driver to make ends meet after he was exiled from Turkey.

The 48-year-old was a regular fixture in Serie A from 2000 to 2002, scoring nine goals in 44 Serie A appearances, while he took Turkey to third place at the 2002 World Cup.

His life took a dramatic turn after retirement, as he entered politics and was elected to Parliament, but in 2011 had a bitter falling out with President of Turkey Recep Erdogan.

Brazilian sides in for Pedro

Flamengo and Gremio have both reportedly joined the race to sign Fiorentina striker Pedro.

Globo Esporte reports Flamengo want to take Pedro on a year-long loan, similar to their deal for Inter forward Gabriel Barbosa.

It comes after a year that saw the Rubro-Negro crowned champions of South America - but not before splashing out on new players and a new coach.

However, the outlet adds they face competition from rivals Gremio, who could capitalise on Fiorentina’s interest in their defender Walter Kannemann.

The Frenchman has made 15 appearances for Galatasaray in all competitions this season, but his time with the club could already be over.

That is because it released a statement saying the midfielder had been “taken out of the squad indefinitely” as a disciplinary measure.
