Ian Wright hitting back at Mesut Ozil
“You’re not signing a deal and you’re probably going to continue to hide behind the fact that (Alexis) Sanchez is the one that everybody’s going to say, ‘Is he going to go?’
“Why haven’t you signed yet? That’s what I would say to you. If you feel that strongly, why haven’t you signed yet?

“When you come to Paris you are at a club that has the ambition to be the best in the world, you have come to a club that wants to play in all the competitions. I’m going to give everything I have got to make history with PSG.

Mauro Icardi’s agent on why he didn’t move to Arsenal
“We’ve renewed his contract with Inter three times because when other clubs have wanted Icardi, the club have done everything to keep him, naturally by improving the terms of his deal!
“Our relationship with their board is great, especially on a personal level. For example, when the girls were born, the club gave us a lot of gifts.
“For us, as a family, it’s better for us to stay in Milan because the children want to stay there. That aside, Mauro’s very happy and he’s also the captain. It’s not our intention to leave Milan, but of course, if Mauro changes city for work purposes, we’d follow him.”
