Headlines
Teams are allowed to make up to six changes before the group stage of the CONCACAF Gold Cup and Bruce Arena is taking advantage. Five new players will step into the fold for the quarterfinals next weekend and all of them have a wealth of international experience. Tim Howard, Michael Bradley, Darlington Nagbe, Clint Dempsey and Jozy Altidore are all coming into the team. Goalkeeper Jesse Gonzalez is joining them in his first ever national team call-up. He made the switch from Mexico's youth ranks before the tournament and is permanently tied to the USA.

Leaving the team are Kelyn Rowe, Dom Dwyer, Brad Guzan, Sean Johnson, Cristian Roldan, and Alejandro Bedoya, who is expecting the birth of his second child next week.

Manchester United have signed goalkeeper Sergio Romero to a contract extension that will keep him at Old Trafford until 2021. He will compete with David De Gea for the starting gig over there, at least as long as De Gea remains there. He has been linked with a move away from the club for quite some time now. He was the main keeper for United's Europa League run, so he's got big game experience that will help him in his quest to become the starter.

AC Milan are keeping their busy summer going by signing midfielder Lucas Biglia from Lazio. He joins on a five year deal and is the club's ninth signing of the transfer window. He made 34 appearances last year and scored five goals.
