Window Shopping: Jorginho, Napoli and Manchester City

Having had such a great season, breaking most records that exist in the Premier League era, Manchester City find themselves in an interesting position going into the summer window.

Window Shopping: Leicester City

Despite a promising start, Claude Puel’s Leicester ended the season on a somewhat flat note.
