New faces on the Premier League merry-go-round

With four players with Premier League pedigree already on board, West Ham United would not be taking a huge risk by looking at William Carvalho.

Jose Mourinho is bracing himself to miss out on landing a fourth and final summer signing, with Manchester United likely to go into the new season without the winger they wanted.

The Portuguese manager won the league title in his second full season in charge of FC Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Chelsea again, and feels the sequence can continue.

United have added striker Romelu Lukaku, midfielder Nemanja Matic and defender Victor Lindelof to their squad. I think Everton will be sixth or seventh, and the rest we know.

"Like every club that's promoted to the Premier League, it's to finish 17th or higher".

"I don't think I am going to win it because I always win it in the second season". How long does it take a top player at each club to buy the typical house in that city, and how does the average fan compare?

"When you come out on top it is an unbelievable feeling to know you are the best team in the country, and you have gone through all sorts of things along the way to win that. I have better conditions to deliver a better season than my first one".

"We have had a better pre-season than previous year and we have the confidence levels of a team that has won a European competition and returned to the Champions League".

However, Mourinho has lost a number of key players to long-term injury, including defenders Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw, and wing-back Ashley Young.

"Given the transfers, I think what you do is you try to assess nearly a middle market".

Moreover, there have been recently constant reports suggesting Bale's departure from the Spanish capital, amid links to the Premier League giants.

Here, we look at some of the top football transfer stories from the British and world media in The Sport Review's Grapevine, published twice a day during the summer transfer window.

Out of the Champions League for the first time in 20 years, Arsenal must make a fast start and avoid their usual winter swoon to keep the natives from becoming even more restless. We will change one important player, it depends on who we are going to stay.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has assembled a side capable of holding their own against anyone, but for two years in a row they have fallen short in the title race.
