Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has vowed to invest in new players this summer and use this season as a springboard for success.

The Gunners beat Newcastle on the final day to pip rivals Tottenham to fourth spot, and secure qualification for next season's Champions League.

Chelsea defender David Luiz paid tribute to the "amazing" Rafa Benitez for all his help during his stay at Stamford Bridge.

The interim boss leaves the Blues having won the Europa League and secured qualification for next season's Champions League.

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has dismissed talk that he is on the verge of joining French champions Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

The 25-year-old, who has scored just two goals in 27 Premier League appearances, has failed to find his best form since his big-money move from Arsenal in 2011.

David Moyes has travelled to Manchester United's Carrington training ground on Monday ahead of officially taking over as manager of the club.

The 50-year-old, who took charge of his final game as Everton boss on Sunday, will succeed outgoing Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson on 1 July.

Andre Villas-Boas is confident Gareth Bale will stay at Tottenham even though they have missed out on a place in the Champions League.

There had been suggestions that Bale's future could depend on whether Spurs finished in the top four, after a dazzling season when he has reportedly captured the interest of several leading European sides.

And finally, Barcelona remain on course for a club-record 100 points after seeing off Real Valladolid at a rain-swept Nou Camp.

Valladolid gave the recently-crowned champions a guard of honour before the match and then helped ensure the night would be a successful one for Tito Vilanova's men by conceding two sloppy first-half goals.
