Headlines
Atletico Madrid have failed in their appeal of their transfer ban, unlike their cross city rivals. The Court of Arbitration for Sport has ruled they sill cannot sign new players until 2018 after violating FIFA's youth transfer regulations.

Manchester City have bought goalkeeper Ederson Moraes from Benfica for €40 million. He is expected to challenge Claudio bravo for he starting job. This is more rough news for former City number one Joe Hart, who does not wish to spend another year on loan.

The John Brooks transfer to Wolfsburg is now official. The fee has reached the whopping sum of €20 million, which is a record for an American player. The previous record belonged to Jozy Altidore, who went to Sunderland from AZ Alkmaar for €10 million. Brooks was born in Berlin, and has only played for Hertha in his career. He was under contract until 2019, but requested a transfer just a couple days ago. 

David Beckham got more good news in his Miami stadium battle. County councilor Audrey Edmonson has backed legislation that would allow him to buy the last remaining parcel of land he needs to build his proposed MLS stadium. If that deal makes it through, Beckham would only need to get the privately financed project approved by the city of Miami and official word from MLS that he still has a team. It isn't the last hurdle he needs to climb. There is still the issue of parking near the stadium and traffic problems in the surrounding neighborhoods, but it's finally looking like David Beckham will get his team in Miami.

Today's Matches
None.
