Headlines
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is set to join Manchester United this summer, is retiring from international football after the completion of Sweden's run at Euro 2016. He has scored 65 goals for Sweden in 115 caps. They face Belgium today in a match they must win in order to advance to the round of 16. Ibrahimovic hopes that today is not his final action for his country.

Spanish international Alvaro Morata is on his way back to Real Madrid. The Spanish giants had sold him to Juventus, but have activated his 30 million buy back clause in order for him to rejoin the fold. The 23-year-old has scored 27 times over his two seasons in Italy. There are whispers that Real Madrid might resell him before the end of the summer. Arsenal and Chelsea have reportedly expressed interest.

Leicester City have added Spanish center back Luis Hernandez from Sporting Gijon. He's played in 140 matches over four years in La Liga, and joins a Premier League title winning defense that conceded only 36 goals last year.
