Headlines
Manchester City have made a modest signing. They brought on Leroy Sane from Schalke in the Bundesliga for £37 million. That's a low sum compared to a lot of the transfer money flinging around Europe these days. Sane is only 20 years old, so he's just as much of a project as he is a potential player for City this season. He has been on Pep Guardiola's radar for the majority of the summer.

Swansea City had reupped with Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson. The 26 year old has signed a new deal with Swans amidst speculation of a move to Everton. His new four year contract will keep him in South Wales until 2020.

Portland Timbers have one of the most passionate fanbases in all of American soccer. They also don't have a stadium big enough to fit them all in. With that in mind, the club plans to add 3,500 seats to their home park after the 2018 season. Tickets are in such high demand out there that there are 13,000 fans sitting on a season ticket wait list. While unable to completely meet that demand, the added capacity will certainly help.
