Robin van Persie has lifted the lid on his drawn out transfer from Arsenal to Manchester United last summer.

The Dutchman described the switch as 'a bit of a roller coaster' and says he was frustrated at how long it took to get the deal done.

Arsenal and Manchester City will travel to Finland for a friendly in August - just one week before the new season gets underway.

The two teams will meet in Helsinki's 40,000 capacity Olympic Stadium.

Tottenham defender Steven Caulker says he is happy with his breakthrough season at Spurs - but still wants more game time.

Caulker made 18 league appearances last term and says being back with Spurs after spending last season on loan with Swansea had its 'ups and downs'.

Florent Malouda insists he bears no grudges after his contract at Chelsea was allowed to run down.

The Frenchman was an outcast in his final year at the club and is now a free agent, but says he wishes the Blues well.

And finally, Barcelona have announced their first pre-season friendly will be against Lechia Gdansk on the 20th of July.
