Real Madrid youngster Sergio Reguilon has left Santiago Bernabeu to join Sevilla on a season-long loan, the LaLiga clubs have confirmed.

Reguilon made his Los Blancos breakthrough last season, coming into the first team under Santiago Solari, who preferred the youngster over Marcelo.

The 22-year-old struggled for game time after Zinedine Zidane's return as head coach, however, making two LaLiga appearances following Solari's departure.

Madrid spent big in June to bring in Ferland Mendy from Lyon for an initial €48million, a move that seemed likely to further limit Reguilon's chances of regular football next season.

And Sevilla have taken advantage, signing the full-back on loan for the 2019-20 campaign.

Reguilon will link up with former Madrid coach Julen Lopetegui in Seville and becomes the club's eighth signing of the transfer window.

However, Wissam Ben Yedder continues to be linked with a move away from Sevilla, with the France forward reportedly a target for Manchester United should they sell Romelu Lukaku.

Sevilla's sporting director Monchi, however, said on Friday that Sevilla are yet to receive any offers for the 28-year-old, who hit 18 LaLiga goals last season.

"There's nothing new. He has one week left of holiday and will report for pre-season on the 13th [of July] to travel to the United States," he told reporters.

"From then on, the [transfer] market is open and there are possibilities for any player of our squad. As of today, no offer has arrived."

Andreas Pereira has signed a new four-year contract with Manchester United, the Premier League club have confirmed.

Following successive loan spells at LaLiga clubs Granada and Valencia, Pereira made 22 appearances across all competitions for United last season.

Pereira made 16 of those appearances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, having failed to establish himself during Jose Mourinho's tenure.

United triggered an option on Pereira's previous contract in March, extending the midfielder's deal to June 2020.

And the club have now tied the 23-year-old down to fresh terms, committing him to the Old Trafford outfit until June 2023, with an option for a further year.

"I have spent so long in Manchester that I now regard the city and the club as my home and I'm extremely happy to continue my career here," Pereira, who joined United's academy in the 2011-12 season, told the club's official website.

"The manager has shown great faith in me and I can't wait to get this campaign started under him."

Solskjaer added: "Andreas is another player brought through our academy that understands what it means to play for United.

"He came from another country but quickly understood the values of playing for this club and doesn't take it for granted."

Pereira's renewal follows on from Marcus Rashford pledging his future to United, with the England striker having signed a four-year deal with an option for a further year on Monday.

United have also been busy in the transfer market, with Daniel James' arrival from Swansea City having been followed by the signing of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for a reported £45million fee, while Leicester City are rumoured to have rejected a bid for Harry Maguire.

Newcastle United midfielder Sean Longstaff continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford, while doubt remains over the futures of Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku.

Paris Saint-Germain have completed the free transfer of Ander Herrera following his Manchester United departure.

Herrera, 29, ran down his contract at Old Trafford and has subsequently signed a five-year deal in Paris.

United struggled to challenge for major honours on a regular basis during Herrera's time at the club, and he highlighted PSG's recent record of winning titles as a major reason for choosing them.

"Paris Saint-Germain are the greatest club in France," he told PSG's website. "They keep on improving and compete to win every possible title.

"I was looking forward to coming to Paris and to wearing those colours. I hope to continue to make history with the club. Joining this club is an amazing feeling.

"I also love the city. Paris is the most beautiful city in the world. I promise three things: work, professionalism and passion.

"I also promise to improve my French because I think that the language is very important for the team's communication."

United had been eager to extend Herrera's stay at the club, having joined from Athletic Bilbao in 2014.

However, the Red Devils are reported to have baulked at his salary demands, allowing PSG to complete a deal once Herrera's departure was confirmed in April.

Spain international Herrera provides much-needed midfield reinforcements for PSG, after they found themselves short of numbers in the centre last term.

Following the departures of Lassana Diarra and Adrien Rabiot, he becomes only PSG's third senior central midfielder alongside Marco Verratti and Leandro Paredes, who had been linked with a move after an unimpressive first few months at the club.

Herrera is PSG's second signing of the close-season, following compatriot Pablo Sarabia to the Parc des Princes after his reported €20million move from Sevilla.

Bayern Munich and Netherlands great Arjen Robben has decided to end his playing career at the age of 35.

Robben enjoyed a glittering career at the top of European football, winning a host of trophies for PSV, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Bayern.

But he has called time on his career instead of finding a new club following his release by Bayern, insisting this is a "permanent" decision.

"As everybody knows, I took some time after my last match for Bayern Munich to make up my mind for the future. And now I have decided to end my career as a professional player," Robben said in a statement.

"This has been without a doubt the hardest decision I had to make in my career, a decision in which 'heart' and 'head' bumped into each other.

"The love for the game and the conviction that you can still take over the world, versus the reality that it doesn't always go like you want it to and that you're no longer a 16-year-old boy, who doesn't know what it's like to be injured.

"At the moment I'm fit and healthy and, as a fan of many other sports, I'd like to keep it that way. My quitting is permanent, but it's all right this way."

It was at Chelsea – whom he joined in 2004 – where he established himself as one of world football's great promises, helping the club to back-to-back Premier League triumphs in 2004-05 and 2005-06 and an FA Cup win the following season.

His subsequent move to Real Madrid was less successful on a personal level, though he did win LaLiga in 2007-08.

Bayern snapped him up in 2009 and, though injuries were a regular occurrence, he still managed to enjoy a sparkling 10-year stay at the Allianz Arena.

He won eight Bundesliga titles in that time, plus the Champions League in 2012-13, making 309 appearances across all competitions.

Despite the injuries, Robben still managed to score 144 times for Bayern, including six in 19 matches in his final campaign.

The winger had been tipped to return to his first professional club Groningen after his Bayern contract expired, but he has since opted to end his career altogether.

"In December 2000 my adventure started as a player with Groningen," Robben's statement continued. 

"The career that followed after that is something I only could have dreamt back then. Groningen, PSV, Chelsea, Real Madrid and eventually Bayern Munich, and last but not least, my time with the Dutch national team.

"It might be a cliche, but there really is no better thing than playing for your own country. In the end I decided to quit in 2017 after 96 international caps.

"I got to play six big tournaments and was the captain during my last years with the team. Altogether it's an unforgettable time that I'll always cherish.

"It is too early to look back into the details of my career, but for now it's pride and thankfulness which dominates my feelings. I want to thank everyone who contributed to this from the bottom of my heart.

"My parents, my sister, family, friends, my personal coaching team, all of the clubs, team members, coaches, journalists and fans. Everyone who supported me for all those years and made me into the player and the person I am today.

"I have lived 19 years for my passion and tried to make the most of it. This asks a certain mentality and it for sure took a lot of energy, especially when things don't go as you want them to be and when you have to fight back after difficult moments. Top athletes are being known for their selfish attitude and I have definitely not been an exclusion to that.

"Therefore, I'd like to thank my family for their unconditional support, understanding and love. It's time for a new chapter and I'm looking forward to spending more time together with my wife and kids and to enjoy together from all the good things that still have to come for us."

On top of a glorious club career, Robben also won 96 caps for his country in 14 years, netting 37 Netherlands goals.

Gianluigi Buffon has completed a return to Juventus, a year after leaving the club for Paris Saint-Germain.

Buffon departed Juve for PSG, ending a 17-year stay, but was unable to dislodge Alphonse Areola as the club's regular first-choice goalkeeper.

And after turning down a second season in the French capital, the former Italy goalkeeper is heading back to Juve.

Buffon has agreed a one-year deal with the Serie A champions, which will take him past his 42nd birthday.

A return to the Bianconeri had been mooted for several weeks, with second-choice goalkeeper Mattia Perin reportedly set for a move, and club great Buffon has joined up with Juve again to compete with Wojciech Szczesny for the starting spot.

A Juve statement read: "After a year away from Turin, Gianluigi Buffon has returned to Juventus, penning a one-year contract which will tie him to the club until 30 June 2020.

"It was May 19, 2018. That was the day when there were tears in everyone's eyes - when Gigi said goodbye to Juventus, it's fans and vice-versa. It was the bidding of a farewell to someone who was more than just a captain, but a legend and a symbol of the club.

"Probably each of us hoped, and in the end, knew that the yarn that united us for so many years was not destined to break. And that was the case.

"After a year with Paris Saint-Germain, Gigi has officially returned to Juventus."

Buffon added: "I wanted to greet you once again, I am happy to have returned home and to have the opportunity to again embrace you and to be embraced by you.

"This is one of the most beautiful and happiest days of my life. Today I received the confirmation that life is incredible and it's always worth dreaming."

During his single year in Paris, Buffon won a Ligue 1 title but failed in his quest to claim Champions League glory as PSG were knocked out by Manchester United.

He made 17 league appearances as he and Areola shared responsibilities between the posts, yet the 41-year-old was unable to make himself the undisputed first choice.

Buffon returns to Juve 18 years after his first move to the club from Parma set a new record – at the time – for the most expensive goalkeeper ever, costing €51million.

Leicester City have signed Ayoze Perez from Newcastle United in a deal reported to be worth £30million.

Spanish striker Perez has signed a four-year deal at the King Power Stadium after Leicester activated the buy-out clause in his Newcastle contract.

"I'm very happy and very pleased. I'm very proud to be part of the Leicester family and I can't wait to get started," Perez told LCFC TV.

"The club want to keep growing as much as they can and that's something I like. I spoke with the manager and that was important. That made me feel very comfortable about the decision to come here."

Brendan Rodgers said: "I think Ayoze will be a wonderful addition to the squad. He's quick, has a good eye for goal and he's experienced in the Premier League too.

"I think he's a player who will excite our supporters, and his style is one that I believe complements the options and quality that we already have here at the football club."

The 25-year-old, who joined the Magpies from Tenerife in 2014, scored 13 goals in all competitions for the Magpies in 2018-19, taking his tally for the club to 48 in 195 appearances.

Foxes boss Rodgers was heavily reliant on Jamie Vardy towards the end of last season and the former England forward netted 18 Premier League goals to help the club secure a ninth-place finish.

Perez's arrival follows that of defender James Justin from Luton Town and comes amid reports centre-back Harry Maguire is nearing a transfer to Manchester United.

Manchester City have signed Rodri from Atletico Madrid for a club-record fee after activating his reported €70million (£63million) release clause.

Atletico announced on Wednesday the midfielder's exit clause had been deposited at LaLiga headquarters by Rodri's lawyer and City representatives, freeing him from his contract.

The Premier League champions then confirmed on Thursday the Spain international has signed a five-year deal, becoming their second arrival of the week after full-back Angelino was brought back from PSV.

Rodri's move eclipses the £60m City paid to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City in July 2018.

He only joined Atletico from Villarreal a year ago, signing a five-year deal at the Wanda Metropolitano.

The 23-year-old made 47 appearances in all competitions as Diego Simeone's side won the UEFA Super Cup and finished as runners-up to Barcelona in LaLiga.

He also established himself as a mainstay in the Spain squad, with many viewing him as the long-term successor to Sergio Busquets in holding midfield.

Rodri will be expected to provide competition for Fernandinho, while further strengthening the midfield options for Pep Guardiola's side.

Frank Lampard has been named Chelsea's new head coach to replace Maurizio Sarri, returning to the club where he spent 13 years as a player.

The legendary midfielder, who won 11 major honours during his playing days at Stamford Bridge, takes over from Sarri following the Italian's return to Serie A with Juventus.

Lampard has just one year of managerial experience gained at Derby County but returns to the Blues on a three-year contract.

"It gives us great pleasure to welcome Frank back to Chelsea as head coach," said Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia.

"Frank possesses fantastic knowledge and understanding of the club and last season, he demonstrated he is one of the most talented young coaches in the game."

He guided Derby to the Championship play-offs last season, earning praise for his style of play, only to suffer a 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa in May's final.

The Rams granted the Premier League outfit permission to speak to Lampard, 41, last week and excused their manager from the first two days of pre-season training to avoid a long-running saga.

Chelsea have reportedly paid £4million in compensation to secure new leadership of a team that won the Europa League and finished third in the top flight last term.

Eden Hazard has since left and a two-window transfer embargo is set to force the London club to rely more heavily on its academy.

Lampard scored a club record 211 goals for Chelsea, while only three players have made more than his 648 appearances for the club.

His first competitive match in charge is away to Manchester United in the Premier League on August 11, with the UEFA Super Cup against Liverpool to follow three days later.

Derby, who are tipped to turn to Phillip Cocu, announced that assistant Jody Morris and coach Chris Jones have followed Lampard to Chelsea.

Atletico Madrid have beaten a host of Europe's top clubs to the signing of highly rated Benfica teenager Joao Felix for €126million.

The LaLiga club submitted an offer last Thursday, just three weeks after he made his debut for Portugal, and the deal was completed six days later.

Joao Felix scored 20 goals in all competitions during the 2018-19 season - his first as part of Benfica's senior squad - and in April became the youngest player to hit a Europa League hat-trick.

Head-turning performances domestically and in continental competitions reportedly captured the attention of Juventus, Manchester City and Manchester United, but Atletico have moved quickest to win his signature.

Joao Felix had a release clause of €120m but Benfica will receive a sum greater than that as Atletico's payments will be made in instalments.

The 19-year-old's arrival at the Wanda Metropolitano could pave the way for Antoine Griezmann's exit.

The France forward has made clear his intention to leave the club as Diego Simeone plots a squad rebuild, with Diego Godin already confirming his departure and Filipe Luis tipped to follow.

Atletico Madrid have confirmed Manchester City have paid Rodri's release clause, with the midfielder set to join the Premier League champions.

The Spain international had been strongly linked with a move to City for some weeks and a switch to England now appears imminent, with Atletico confirming his contract at the Wanda Metropolitano has been terminated.

An Atletico statement read: "LaLiga has informed Atletico Madrid that Rodrigo Hernandez, through his lawyer, and representatives from Manchester City, paid the player's release clause at the sports association's headquarters on Wednesday, July 3.

"Manchester City has paid the buyout clause on behalf of the player. The player has therefore unilaterally terminated his contract with our club, which ran until June 30, 2023."

Rodri only joined Atletico from Villarreal a year ago, signing a five-year deal as he returned to the club he represented as a child.

The 23-year-old made 47 appearances in all competitions as Diego Simeone's side won the UEFA Super Cup and finished as runners-up to Barcelona in LaLiga.

He also established himself as a mainstay in the Spain squad, with many viewing him as the long-term successor to Sergio Busquets in holding midfield.

Assuming his move to City goes ahead as planned, he will become the club's new record signing, eclipsing the £60m (€68m) they paid for Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City 12 months ago.

Rodri will be expected to provide competition for Fernandinho in midfield, while further strengthening the central options for Pep Guardiola's side.

The departure will come as another blow for Atletico after Antoine Griezmann announced his desire to leave the club, while captain Diego Godin left for Inter.

Andy Murray's management team have confirmed the Briton will partner Serena Williams in this year's mixed doubles at Wimbledon.

Both Murray, who has already committed to playing in the men's doubles with Pierre-Hugues Herbert as he continues his recovery from hip resurfacing surgery, and Williams had previously teased the possibility of teaming up in a stunningly high-profile pairing.

Williams sparked laughter in a news conference on Tuesday after her opening-round singles win over Giulia Gatto-Monticone, when she was asked about playing alongside Murray and told reporters: "If you guys really want it, then maybe I'll do it."

Soon after, an adviser to Murray confirmed to Omnisport that the two-time Wimbledon champion would join forces with Williams at the All England Club.

The news is sure to spark huge interest given the respective profiles of both players.

Williams has won 23 slam singles titles and is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in history, while Murray became the first British man in 77 years to win Wimbledon when he claimed his first title at SW19 in 2013.

While she did not confirm her partnership with Murray in her briefing, Williams, who also holds 14 slam doubles crowns and two in the mixed, did discuss their friendship.

"We're a lot alike on the court. I've always liked that about him," said the American.

"His work ethic is just honestly off the charts. That's something I've always respected about him. His fitness, everything.

"To do what he's done in an era where there's so many other great male tennis players, so much competition, to rise above it, not many people have done it. He's actually one of the few.

"There's so many things to be admired. Above all, he really stands out, he really speaks up about women's issues no matter what. You can tell he has a really strong woman in his life. I think above all that is just fantastic."

Williams' two mixed doubles titles in slams both came back in 1998, when she won at Wimbledon and the US Open alongside Max Mirnyi.

Andy Murray's management team have confirmed the Briton will partner Serena Williams in this year's mixed doubles at Wimbledon.

Tottenham have signed midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon in a deal worth £62.8million (€70m), smashing their previous transfer record.

The big-money move makes Ndombele - who has signed a six-year contract - Tottenham's most expensive player, eclipsing the £42m spent on Davinson Sanchez in 2017.

Spurs will pay £53.8m (€60m) up front and a further £9m (€10m) in bonuses if certain requirements are met.

The France international becomes the Premier League club's second addition of the close season following the capture of teenage winger Jack Clarke, who immediately returned to Leeds United on loan.

A host of top European sides had been credited with an interest in Ndombele, but the 22-year-old has opted to join the Champions League runners-up as Mauricio Pochettino seeks to improve on 2018-19's fourth-placed finish.

Ndombele joined Lyon on loan from Amiens in August 2017 and made the move permanent a year later. He went on to score four goals and register 16 assists for the club.

A statement from the Ligue 1 side read: "Lyon thanks Tanguy Ndombele for his involvement with the club since his arrival in 2017 and congratulates him for his professionalism and performances that have enabled him to represent France.

"Today he becomes the record sale in the history of the club, but Tanguy Ndombele will remain one of the greatest talents to have worn our shirt."

Tottenham have signed midfielder Tanguy Ndombele from Lyon in a deal worth £62.8million (€70m), smashing their previous transfer record.

The big-money move makes Ndombele Tottenham's most expensive player, eclipsing the £42m spent on Davinson Sanchez in 2017. 

The France international becomes the Premier League club's second addition of the close-season following the capture of teenage winger Jack Clarke, who immediately returned to Leeds United on loan.

A host of top European sides had been credited with an interest in Ndombele, but the 22-year-old has opted to join the Champions League runners-up as Mauricio Pochettino seeks to improve on 2018-19's fourth-placed finish.

Tottenham have ended their long transfer impasse with the capture of Leeds United's teenage winger Jack Clarke, who will return to Elland Road on loan next season.

Clarke has penned a four-year deal to become Mauricio Pochettino's first addition since the arrival of Lucas Moura in January 2018.

Leeds accepted an offer reportedly in the region of £10million plus add-ons for the 18-year-old and negotiated his return for another 12 months under the tutelage of Pochettino's former mentor Marcelo Bielsa.

Quick, direct and comfortable on either flank, Clarke made 25 competitive appearances during his breakthrough campaign in Yorkshire.

He scored twice in that time and looked set to break into Leeds' starting XI before being taken ill during a game against Middlesbrough in February, which led to him spending a short period of time in hospital.

"I'm delighted to join Tottenham and in the short term I'll be giving my all to hopefully help Leeds win promotion," Clarke said.

Lyon and France midfielder Tanguy Ndombele is tipped to follow Clarke to London to become Tottenham's second signing of the transfer window.

Real Betis star Giovani Lo Celso has also been heavily linked to the beaten Champions League finalists.
