When football returns after the coronavirus lockdown, agent Vincenzo Morabito believes the transfer market will be transformed to “pre-Neymar levels.”

Clubs are scrambling to suspend pay for their players and balance the books, as calling the entire season to a halt for weeks due to the pandemic will inevitably hit their finances hard.

Agent Morabito expects this to have a long-lasting effect on the transfer market, particularly the huge figures that were being exchanged at the very top level.

Atalanta striker Luis Muriel bagged an historic brace as Colombia played a 2-2 friendly draw with Brazil in Miami.

In population terms (within city walls), Paris is Europe’s fifth largest city. The French capital is home to some 2.2m people and yesterday that number increased, as Mauro Icardi and wife/agent Wanda Nara decided to move their polarising spectacle to the city of art, fashion and PSG.

Icardi’s transfer to the French champions ended months of internal wrangling, wishful declarations of intent and potential legal ramifications between the striker and Inter.
