Tottenham defender Juan Foyth will be sidelined until September due to an ankle ligament injury.

The centre-back was hurt during the Audi Cup pre-season match with Bayern Munich last month, with manager Mauricio Pochettino admitting the player was in a lot of pain.

Medical tests have revealed Foyth has damaged the lateral ligament in his left ankle and is not due to resume first-team duties until next month.

The 21-year-old is suspended for Spurs' first two Premier League games of the season against Aston Villa and Manchester City.

He is unlikely to be fit for the home game against Newcastle United on August 25 or the north London derby with Arsenal on September 1.

Earlier, Spurs also confirmed they have been granted planning permission to increase the capacity of their stadium.

Haringey Council has approved plans to add more seats to the north and south stands that will boost the overall number to 62,214.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes there are "many contenders" for the Premier League title, including rivals Manchester United.

City will go into the 2019-20 season as favourites to win the league for the third straight year and they edged Liverpool on penalties in the Community Shield on Sunday.

While Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp led their teams clear of the pack last season, Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal in particular have strengthened heading into the new campaign.

Guardiola talked up European champions Liverpool, but said the usual 'Big Six' were in contention – highlighting United's expected signing of England centre-back Harry Maguire from Leicester City.

"I think United with Maguire and the other players they bought, Arsenal as well, Chelsea and Tottenham, they won all of their pre-season so I think there will be many, many contenders this time," he told a news conference on Sunday.

"But I think Liverpool... we were so happy when we realised which team we were going to face for the rest of the season, they are the champions of Europe, that's why I gave a lot of credit to our victory today.

"The way we played, particularly in the first half, and the way we defended, but they are a top-class team. The difference can be one point ahead, one penalty ahead, that is the difference, it's minor.

"Sometimes a call will come on your side, sometimes not, that's why it's good to face them, this is the team we are going to face this season.

"This is how well prepared we have to be until the end to try to win the titles."

Manchester City begin their league campaign at West Ham on Saturday.

Mauricio Pochettino admitted he is "worried" about Dele Alli after revealing the Tottenham midfielder is set to miss the start of the new season with a fresh hamstring injury.

Alli was ruled out of Tottenham's final pre-season friendly against Inter on Sunday and is now in a race against time to be fit for next Saturday's Premier League opener against Aston Villa.

The 23-year-old missed a number of matches with a similar injury problem last season and Pochettino is concerned about the amount of time one of his star men has spent on the sidelines in his four years with Spurs.

"I don’t know if the club will communicate the time [he will be out] but I don’t believe he's going to be ready for the start of the season," Pochettino said at his post-match news conference.

"It's the same type of injury [as before]. Of course we are worried. He's still so young - just 23 years old and he has had many, many hamstring problems in the last few years. 

"We are here to try to help him. I think it's a minor injury - probably a few weeks before he can be available again and be with the group."

Tottenham were also without Serge Aurier, Juan Foyth, Victor Wanyama and Eric Dier for their friendly with Inter on home soil, which they lost 4-3 on penalties following a 1-1 draw after 90 minutes - Lucas Moura's early strike being cancelled out by Stefano Sensi.

Pochettino conceded after the match a number of his players will be short of fitness come the start of the new campaign.

"With Juan I think the medical staff are going to provide an update in the next few days," he said. "I cannot say more because I don't know exactly how much time he will be out for. 

"For sure it's a tough injury and for sure it is many weeks he is going to be out. We hope he can recover as soon as possible.

"Serge, Victor and Dier were at the training ground. For different reasons they are short in their preparation. Rather than play today it was important to train and to try to be fit as soon as possible.

"We are going to arrive in a very good condition [for the first game], but maybe not in an ideal condition. 

"Some players are a little bit shorter in their preparation. It’s not ideal, but it’s after going to be such a tough season and we are happy. 

"We need to improve. We have one week to prepare for the game but we're going to arrive in a good condition to try to beat Aston Villa."

Club-record signing Tanguy Ndombele made his home debut in Sunday's International Champions Cup match and Pochettino is not ruling out more new signings before Thursday's deadline, despite a lack of recent dialogue with chairman Daniel Levy.

"I am happy with my squad," he said. "You can see today a lot of younger players. 

"Every season we are always open to improve the squad and to try to find the right players to be stronger and better and there are still four days. We'll see what happens in the next few days.

"But Daniel is in Miami and I haven't had the opportunity to talk to him."

Christian Eriksen and Oliver Skipp missed from the spot as Tottenham suffered a 4-3 penalty shoot-out defeat to Inter after a 1-1 draw on home soil in their final pre-season friendly.

Spurs got the better of Bayern Munich on penalties on Wednesday to win the Audi Cup, but they were second best in Sunday's International Champions Cup clash against Antonio Conte's side.

Inter pegged the hosts back before half-time through new signing Stefano Sensi after Lucas Moura had maintained his impressive form by putting Spurs in front inside the first three minutes.

Neither team could find a winner in a match lacking clear-cut chances and it was Inter – still three weeks away from their first competitive match of 2019-20 – who prevailed 4-3 on penalties in London, Joao Mario converting the winning kick.

Manchester United and Juventus have been discussing a swap deal involving Paulo Dybala.

However, Tottenham are also interested in the Argentina international.

With the Premier League transfer window to shut on August 8, there is still plenty of twists and turns to come.

 

TOP STORY – SPURS EYE DYBALA AMID UNITED TALKS

Tottenham have made an approach for Juventus star Paulo Dybala, according to SoccerLink.

Dybala is in talks with Manchester United, who have reportedly agreed a deal to send striker Romelu Lukaku to Juventus for the former Palermo forward.

The 25-year-old is reportedly not convinced about joining United and Champions League finalists Tottenham are ready to pounce after manager and fellow Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino tried to convince the player to move to London.

 

ROUND-UP

- The front page of SPORT is dominated by Neymar. The newspaper says Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain are working on a loan deal with a non-mandatory purchase option to unlock negotiations. The new formula could accelerate a transfer.

- Manchester United star Paul Pogba fears being priced out of a move to Real Madrid, according to The Mirror. Madrid are in negotiations to sign Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek as they struggle to prise Pogba away from Old Trafford.

- The Express says Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is eyeing Real Madrid midfielder Isco and Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake. The Premier League champions are reportedly targeting Ake – who is believed to be wanted by Leicester City – as Manchester United close in on Harry Maguire.

- Napoli have entered the race to sign Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United, reports Alfredo Pedulla. However, Lukaku has apparently rejected the offer as he eyes a move to Juventus.

- According to O Jogo, Benfica are plotting a €6million transfer for Partizan Belgrade teenager Strahinja Pavlovic. The 18-year-old defender has been linked with Serie A champions Juventus.

- La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Ligue 1 duo Lyon and Monaco are keen on signing AC Milan attacker Suso.

- Barcelona are close to signing Real Betis full-back Junior Firpo, according to Marca. Mundo Deportivo says the two Spanish clubs have agreed a €25m fee for the 22-year-old.

Manchester City and Liverpool will lead a two-horse race in the Premier League once again in the 2019-20 campaign, Reds icon Graeme Souness believes.

Pep Guardiola's City edged the Premier League title last term, finishing on 98 points – just one more than Liverpool – to defend their crown.

It was a remarkable campaign, with Liverpool setting a new record points total for a side that finished second, their swashbuckling attacking style aided by a new-found defensive shrewdness inspired by Alisson and Virgil van Dijk.

Although the Reds won the Champions League, there was still an air of what might have been domestically, as they lost only once in the top flight.

Liverpool also finished a whopping 27 points ahead of third-placed Chelsea and Souness does not see anyone bridging the gap in this season.

Speaking to Omnisport at Brighton and Hove Pride on behalf of PaddyPower, Souness said: "I think they [Man City and Liverpool] showed last season they're a good bit ahead of anyone else, both of them.

"Man United have obviously strengthened where they needed to, at the back. I suppose United will be hoping Harry Maguire 'does a Virgil van Dijk' and brings them all along, makes everyone feel better about themselves and play better.

"I think Tottenham, they've spent a bit of money, they've been a team threatening for a few years now, they need to make that leap.

"Arsenal I don't see challenging and Chelsea could have a difficult year. They've lost the best player [Eden Hazard] in the Premier League of the last six or seven years.

"He's now gone and he was a scorer and provider of goals for Chelsea, they'll miss him enormously and, given they've this transfer embargo, I think it'll be a difficult year.

"I still see the big two, then the nearest challengers as Spurs. But United, if they get some momentum, they'll take some stopping, because you have to accept they're a very special football club and the support get behind them there."

Liverpool's pre-season has had its problems, as manager Jurgen Klopp has been without numerous key players due to international competitions and they won only once from matches against Lyon, Sevilla, Napoli, Borussia Dortmund and Sporting CP.

Up next before they get the new Premier League season started is the Community Shield against City, though Souness insists – win or lose – it will not be an indicator of how the season will unfold.

"The game [on Sunday] is not about who wins, it's about players getting through the game, getting up to speed for, in Liverpool's case, their game at home to Norwich, Souness added.

"It's about getting them through the pre-season and to the first day [of the campaign] – the first day is everything.

"You think of Liverpool losing it by one point last year, I think it'll be those two [teams at the top] again, it'll be nip and tuck all the way.

"Every single game, every single point is important, but Sunday is not – in terms of a result – important.

"I'm talking from a manager's perspective, saying that, as a player you don't rock up at Wembley and not want to win, you're bang at it. But the priority is getting them that bit fitter."

 

Graeme Souness was talking to Omnisport on behalf of PaddyPower's Come Out and Play campaign and Proud United, a team of LGBTQ footballers from across the United Kingdom working to tackle homophobia in football.

Real Madrid want to add a midfielder or two and they have made progress with Donny van de Beek and entered the race for another star.

The LaLiga giants have consistently been linked with Manchester United's Paul Pogba this close season, but it seems their chase of the France international is making very slow progress.

Now, they have reportedly agreed to terms with Ajax star Van de Beek and stunningly entered the race for Bruno Fernandes.

 

TOP STORY – MADRID AGREE TERMS WITH VAN DE BEEK, ENTER FERNANDES RACE

Real Madrid have reached an agreement with Van de Beek over a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, according to Marca.

The 22-year-old Ajax and Netherlands midfielder will make the move if Madrid can agree a fee with the Eredivisie champions.

However, Marca also say Madrid's move for Van de Beek would not close the door to Pogba.

Having already strengthened in the close season, Madrid are also in the race for Sporting CP star Fernandes – linked with Manchester United and Tottenham – according to Record.

 

ROUND-UP

- 'It's war!' reads the cover of Sport, who say Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar has insisted his desire is to return to Barcelona. They report the Ligue 1 champions are losing patience with the Brazil forward and will make a decision on the forward's future next week.

- With or without Neymar, Barcelona are making moves. Sport report the LaLiga champions have agreed to a five-year deal with Junior Firpo but are still working to reach a deal with Real Betis for the left-back. Barca will offer around €20million, but Betis are looking for €25m, with variables in the discussion.

- There is also set to be an exit from Camp Nou. Juventus will offer Barcelona €10m plus bonuses for left-back Juan Miranda, but the Spanish side will only accept a deal if a buy-back clause is included.

- Amid continued talks between Manchester United and Juventus regarding a Romelu Lukaku-Paulo Dybala swap deal, it seems Mario Mandzukic is ready for a switch to Old Trafford. Il BiancoNero reports Juve's Croatian striker is positive about the chance to join the Premier League giants.

- Mauro Icardi's Inter career is over. La Gazzetta dello Sport report Nerazzurri chiefs have told the forward he is no longer wanted at San Siro and should consider offers from Roma and Napoli.

- Nicolo Zaniolo has been linked with a move away from Roma, but the Serie A side are set to begin talks with the midfielder over a new contract, according to Calciomercato. Juventus and Tottenham are reportedly interested in the 20-year-old.

Kingsley Coman has sustained only bruising to his knee and could be available for Bayern Munich's DFL-Supercup clash with Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

The France winger had to go off after managing just five minutes as a substitute in the Audi Cup match against Tottenham on Wednesday.

Head coach Niko Kovac said after the match: "We hope that it's not too bad and that he'll be back in the next few days."

Bayern confirmed on Thursday that Coman "only suffered a badly bruised knee" and is expected to return to training on Friday.

Bayern were beaten on penalties after a 2-2 draw with Spurs in their final pre-season fixture.

They face Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park in the traditional season curtain-raiser before a DFB-Pokal trip to Energie Cottbus on August 12.

Their Bundesliga title defence begins on August 16 at home to Hertha Berlin.

New Liverpool signing Harvey Elliott has apologised after a video emerged of him mocking Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

The footage, apparently posted by the 16-year-old on Snapchat, showed him using derogatory language about Spurs and England captain Kane during their Champions League final defeat to Liverpool in June.

"I would just like to wholeheartedly apologise for any offence caused on the back of a video of me currently circulating on the internet," Elliott said in a statement posted on Instagram.

"The video was taken whilst messing around with friends in a private environment and was not directed at any individual but I realise that my actions were both immature and senseless.

"I would like to stress that the contents of the video do not represent who I am as a person or how I've been brought up, and I am truly sorry."

Elliott made his first appearance for Liverpool in the 3-0 friendly defeat to Napoli on Monday, just hours after his move to his boyhood club was announced.

The winger, who became the youngest player to appear in the Premier League when he played for Fulham last season, also featured in Wednesday's 3-1 victory over Lyon.

Juan Foyth sustained a "very painful" ankle injury as Tottenham beat Bayern Munich on penalties to claim the Audi Cup, said Mauricio Pochettino.

Foyth was taken off on a stretcher during the second half of Wednesday's pre-season clash at the Allianz Arena, where Spurs triumphed 6-5 on penalties after Bayern battled back from 2-0 down.

The Argentina international has been featuring at right-back, with Spurs yet to replace Kieran Trippier after his move to Atletico Madrid.

Pochettino is now awaiting an update on Foyth with the start of the Premier League season less than two weeks away.

"I need to talk with the doctor now," Pochettino told a post-match news conference.

"He twisted his ankle but at the moment I cannot update. I saw when he was leaving the pitch and he said to me his ankle was very painful. 

"For sure we will get an update in the next few hours or the next few days." 

Bayern have already lost Serge Gnabry to injury during pre-season and Kingsley Coman hobbled off shortly after his second-half introduction against Spurs.

The France international has had terrible luck with fitness throughout his career, while Bayern are yet to replace departed wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

Coman has been tipped to step up in the absence of the veteran duo and Kovac does not think the knock he took is serious.

"It does not seem too bad," Kovac said to German broadcaster ZDF. "It was just a kick."

Reports in Germany, meanwhile, claim Bayern have submitted an official offer to Manchester City for Germany winger Leroy Sane.

Tottenham won the 2019 Audi Cup by beating Bayern Munich 6-5 on penalties after a 2-2 draw in the final, Jerome Boateng's miss proving decisive.

Tournament hosts Bayern named a youthful side for Wednesday's game at the Allianz Arena, Niko Kovac's side having thrashed Fenerbahce in the semi-finals a day earlier.

Spurs seemed set to follow their Real Madrid win with victory over the Bundesliga champions by going 2-0 up thanks to goals from Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen.

But Jann-Fiete Arp pulled one back for Bayern, who equalised in style thanks to a superb long-range hit from Alphonso Davies, only for Paulo Gazzaniga to deny Boateng in the shoot-out.

Manuel Neuer brilliantly denied Lucas Moura in the fifth minute as the Brazilian tried to turn home an excellent right-wing cross from Kyle Walker-Peters.

Benjamin Pavard headed over at the other end, but Spurs took the lead in the 19th minute.

Georges-Kevin Nkoudou burst clear of his marker on the left wing and delivered a low cross to the back post that Lamela slid in to meet.

Neuer's replacement, Sven Ulreich, did well to deny Son Heung-min after the restart but Spurs struck again in the 59th minute.

Harry Kane pulled the ball back for fellow half-time substitute Eriksen, who drilled home across Ulreich from just inside the box.

Bayern hit back almost immediately, however, as Arp raced on to Davies' flicked pass to slot home past Gazzaniga, who was badly out of position.

Ulreich needed sharp reflexes to block Kane's powerful left-footed drive, then Marcel Zylla had an effort blocked as Bayern sought an equaliser.

Bayern, already without Serge Gnabry, lost winger Kingsley Coman to injury shortly after his arrival as a substitute, with Spurs defender Juan Foyth also needing to be withdrawn.

But while Kovac might be short of wide options following the departures of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery, Canadian prospect Davies issued a reminder of his talent when he whipped in a sensational leveller from 25 yards to make it 2-2 with nine minutes to go.

Bayern ended the 90 minutes on top, but Gazzaniga's save from David Alaba earned Spurs an advantage Eriksen spurned by firing his penalty straight at an unmoved Ulreich.

And after five straight successful scores for Spurs, Gazzaniga made up for his error on Arp's goal by diving high to his right to keep out Boateng's strike.

Zinedine Zidane said he hoped Gareth Bale trained after the unsettled forward was spotting playing golf during Real Madrid's Audi Cup trip.

Reports in Spain claimed Bale was seen golfing while Madrid were losing to the winger's former club Tottenham on Tuesday, with the Wales forward not included in their tour squad due to illness.

Bale was expected to complete a move to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning, but the deal collapsed at the weekend.

Madrid bounced back from their 1-0 loss to Spurs by beating Fenerbahce 5-3 on Wednesday, but Bale remained the main topic on the agenda after the game.

"I don't know what he [Bale] did. I am here with my players," Zidane told reporters when asked about Bale's apparent golf trip. "I cannot comment on that. I hope he has trained there [in Madrid]. We are here thinking of the team.

"We will see when we get back. I'm not going to stop anybody doing anything, we all have our responsibilities. I don't get into his personal life. He stayed there to train, and I think he did that."

Pressed again on Bale, Zidane added: "Another question? You can't put me in a position I don't want to be. I won't answer more than this."

The CSL's transfer window has now closed, denying Bale a possible exit route from Madrid after six years at the club.

"Until August 31, anything can happen," Zidane added, referring to LaLiga's deadline for new arrivals.

"I am sure you are tired of my answers, as I am tired of them at this stage."

Although Madrid beat Fener 5-3 with Karim Benzema scoring a hat-trick, Zidane's side have now conceded 16 goals in their five pre-season fixtures.

"We are going to fix this, work hard," Zidane said. "I know we will turn this around and have a very good season.

"Nobody likes to concede three goals, but we won scoring five goals. It could have been more. That's it."

Madrid are due to play further friendlies against Salzburg and Roma before opening their LaLiga campaign at Celta Vigo on August 17.

 

Antoine Griezmann and Neymar are not on the shortlist for The Best FIFA Men's Player award, with Barcelona team-mate Lionel Messi up against Cristiano Ronaldo and Eden Hazard for this year's prize.

Griezmann completed his long-awaited €120million transfer to the Spanish champions in July but his 15-goal contribution to Atletico Madrid's second-place finish in the 2018-19 LaLiga table was not enough to impress FIFA's panel.

Liverpool trio Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk are in contention after helping the Reds to glory in last season's Champions League, while Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong have been recognised for their part in helping Ajax to the semi-finals and to a domestic title.

There is no place for 2018 winner and Ballon d'Or holder Luka Modric, nor his Real Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale, and Neymar misses out while Paris Saint-Germain colleague Kylian Mbappe is among the nominees.

Premier League rivals Pep Guardiola and Jurgen Klopp are among the candidates to win the Best FIFA Men's Coach award, while Jill Ellis heads up the Best FIFA Women's Coach nominees after she led the United States to World Cup glory.

Guardiola guided Manchester City to the Premier League, EFL Cup and FA Cup in a glittering 2018-19 campaign that saw Klopp's Liverpool push them all the way for domestic glory.

The Reds won the Champions League for the first time in 14 years, beating Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham in the final, and the Spurs boss is also in the running for the FIFA award.

There is no place on the shortlist for Massimiliano Allegri despite the former Juventus coach having clinched his fifth consecutive Scudetto with the Bianconeri, and his successor Maurizio Sarri missed out even though he won the Europa League, reached the EFL Cup final and secured a Champions League spot with Chelsea.

Ellis, meanwhile, is up against Netherlands boss Sarina Wiegman whose side the USA beat in the World Cup final. The coaches of both semi-finalists, England's Phil Neville and Sweden's Peter Gerhardsson, are also on the shortlist.

Italy's Milena Bertolini is also in contention along with Lyon's Reynald Pedros, Japan Under-20s' Futoshi Ikeda, and Arsenal's Joe Montemurro.

Mauricio Pochettino has reiterated he does not control Tottenham's transfers and suggested his job title at the club should change.

Pochettino, who led Spurs to the Champions League final last season, was first team coach for his first two years at the club but when he signed a new deal in 2016 his role changed to manager, which typically includes involvement in transfer business.

He has regularly shown signs of frustration at Tottenham's activity in the market, over which chairman Daniel Levy has the final say.

January arrival Lucas Moura was the north London club's only signing in 2018, although they have broken their transfer record to bring in Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.

The former Lyon midfielder is the only fresh face in Tottenham's squad for 2019-20 at this stage, with Leeds United winger Jack Clarke remaining at Elland Road on loan after joining Pochettino's side.

Despite the lack of business, Tottenham impressed in Tuesday's 1-0 Audi Cup defeat of Real Madrid, while they have also beaten Serie A champions Juventus in pre-season.

Pochettino, though, has again indicated he is dissatisfied with Tottenham's lack of signings, with the club continuing to be linked with a move for Real Betis midfielder Giovani Lo Celso.

"I need to repeat in the past few press conferences what I told your colleagues in England," he told reporters. "I am not in charge and I know nothing about the situation of my players. I am only coaching them and trying to get the best from them.

"These type of things will happen or not happen. Sell, buy players, sign contract, not sign contract. I think it is not in my hands, it's in the club's hands and in Daniel Levy's. At the moment I am managing the team the best way possible.

"The club need to change my title and description, no? My job now is to coach the team. It's not a question for me, it's a question for the club and maybe they change my title and description.

"I told you [the media] before I am not in charge about the individual situations. Of course, I am the boss deciding the strategic play, training, mentology and philosophy are my areas, but in another area I don't know. Today, I feel like I am the coach."

Asked if he should have more say in transfers, Pochettino added: "It's difficult to talk like this but I think it's not in my hands.

"Only I describe the situation of what happens and I think it's important for the players and people to know that I am going to be, like I told you before, that I will be happy with the squad that the club are going to provide to me. Of course we will give our best.

"My mood is always the same and my emotional balance is always similar. I am emotional, but I am a person like everyone that thinks a lot. I only describe the situation to make clear that, if you have some question, I am not the person that is going to [be able to] answer what you want."

Spurs play Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the final of the Audi Cup on Wednesday, with the Premier League's transfer window closing on August 8 ahead of the new season getting under way.
