Barcelona, Real Madrid, and five other La Liga clubs  are in a little bit of hot water. They illegally received state aid from the Spanish government. The clubs have been receiving tax breaks for the last 20 years that have totaled about €68.8 million. The European Commission has ordered they repay the government that money.

A few Premier League clubs have made some small scale transfers. First, Manchester City have brought on Ukrainian international midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko for £1.7 million from Russia's FC Ufa. The-19-year old made his international debut at European Championships this summer. Newly promoted Middlesbrough bought Marten De Roon from Atalanta for £12 million. He scored once in Italy last year. Finally, CSKA's Ahmed Musa is on his way to defending champions Leicester City. The Foxes shattered their record transfer fee for Musa, who has scored 54 goals over three seasons in Russia. Finally, Manchester United continue their busy transfer window by signing young Mexican Hirving Lozano. He will join the squad after Mexico's run in the Olympics ends.
