Pep Guardiola will manage at Manchester City next season. the two dies agreed to terms on Monday morning to kick off transfer deadline day. He takes over the blue side of Manchester on July 1, a day after the end of Manuel Pellegrini's contract.

Another former European star is being linked with LA Galaxy. This time it's Nigel De Jong, who has been released by AC Milan. De Jong spent his most productive years at Manchester City, where he made 104 appearances.

There is another AC Milan player that is coming to America, and it isn't to LA Galaxy. Italian international Antonio Nocerino is set to join Orlando City. The 30-year old midfielder has only played twice for AC Milan this year, he has not scored. He will reunite with Kaka, whom he played with at Milan in 2013.

MLS has two new designated players from the Swiss Super League. The first is New England Revolution signing Xavier Kouassi from FC Sion. He will arrive in the summer after the European season ends. Second is Colorado Rapids, who have been selling everyone off lately, bringing on Shkelzen Gashi from FC Basel. He has led Switzerland in scoring each of the past two years, which will help a Colorado team that averaged less than a goal a game in 2015.

Much was rightfully made of Christian Pulisic making his BVB Dortmund debut over the weekend, but another American teenager is eyeing success in Europe. Sporting Kansas City's Erik Palmer-Brown, who made seven appearances last season, is close to signing with FC Porto. Palmer-Brown was the youngest player to ever sign at SKC when he became a homegrown player at age 16. It's good to see him trying to aim higher.

Finally, it was transfer deadline day across Europe. There were a couplem of big moves in England, inmcluding Stoke CIty breaking their club transfer fee record. They paid £18.3 million for Giannelli Imbula from FC Porto. Everton also threw some money down. They sent Lokamotiv Moscow £13.5 million for Oumar Niasse
