Joe Hart confirms Torino exit
Joe Hart has confirmed that he will not be playing for Torino next season. The England No. 1 will now return to City, where he still has a contract until 2019, with his future uncertain. Torino have already made it clear that they cannot afford to sign him permanently, while the custodian is not interested in going out on loan again, saying recently that another loan "is not the right thing for me at my age".
Emerson suffers ACL injury
Roma have announced Emerson Palmieri will require surgery after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury on the last day of the Serie A season. Defender Palmieri went down in the first half of Roma's 3-2 win over Genoa in Francesco Totti's farewell appearance for the club and left the field on a stretcher. The 22-year-old had been named in a young Italy squad by Gianpiero Ventura for an upcoming friendly against San Marino, recieving his first international call.
Mascherano out for 6 weeks
Barcelona says defender Javier Mascherano will be out of action for six weeks to recover from a right knee injury. Barcelona's season is over, but the injury will rule out Mascherano from Argentina's friendly against Brazil on June 9.
Mascherano injured his leg early in Saturday's final of the Copa del Rey, when Barcelona beat Alaves 3-1 to defend its title for a third straight season. He also cut his head during the collision with an Alaves player that produced the leg injury.
Reus set for six months out
Marco Reus is facing six months out with cruciate ligament damage picked up in Borussia Dortmund's 2-1 DFB Pokal final win against Eintracht Frankfurt, according to a report in Bild. Reus, 27, went off at half-time with the injury and is facing an extended spell on the sidelines. The Germany international had already missed much of Dortmund's season through injury.
Borussia sign Vincenzo Grifo
Borussia Monchengladbach have signed Vincenzo Grifo from Freiburg, with the 24-year-old attacking midfielder penning a deal with the club that will run until June 2022. Grifo became something of a set-piece specialist at Freiburg and led the second division's assists chart with 15. He also scored 15 goals including six direct free-kicks. The strong dribbler adapted well to the Bundesliga scoring six goals and getting twelve assists. He also missed three weeks of the season after suffering ligament damage in his right knee.
Carrick pens new one-year deal
Midfielder Michael Carrick will be staying with Manchester United until at least June 2018 after signing a new one-year contract. The 35-year-old is a hugely popular figure at Old Trafford, having signed for the club from Tottenham back in 2006. His existing deal was due to expire next month, but Carrick said back in March that he would consider extending his 11-year stay at the club if he felt he could still contribute.
Tierney may need surgery
Celtic defender Kieran Tierney may require surgery on a facial injury suffered in the Scottish Cup final. The teenager had to be withdrawn after being caught in the mouth by Aberdeen's Jayden Stockley during the 2-1 victory at Hampden Park. "I think he needs an operation," manager Brendan Rodgers said. "It wasn't nice, and I'll have to speak to the medics on that."
Mascherano stretchered off with head injury
Javier Mascherano's outing in the Copa del Rey final didn't last long, as the Barcelona defender suffered a head injury that required him to leave the pitch on a stretcher after just 11 minutes. Mascherano clashed with Marcos Llorente and started bleeding heavily almost immediately. He also seemed to twist his knee while landing and held his leg as he was carried off. Fortunately for the Catalans, the Copa del Rey final is their last match of the season, so they won't have to worry about an immediate replacement should Mascherano's injury prove serious.
City sign Bernardo Silva
Manchester City have announced the signing of Monaco playmaker Bernardo Silva. According to reports, City will pay £43m for the 22-year-old, who will officially move on July 1. The Portugal international flew into Manchester Airport on Thursday night and negotiations were swiftly concluded. Silva's arrival signals the start of manager Guardiola's overhaul of a squad which finished a disappointing third in the Premier League in his first season in charge.
Barca receive double injury boost
Barcelona have received a double injury boost ahead of the Copa del Rey final against Alaves after influential duo Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano returned to training. The defensive duo were forced to miss last Sunday' final La Liga game against Eibar. Pique was sidelined with a stomach injury, while Mascherano missed the 4-2 victory with muscle problems. But both players have resumed training with the first-team squad and look set to declare their fitness for the final on Saturday.
Predators might get Fisher back for Final
The Nashville Predators got past the Anaheim Ducks without their top two centers, but they might have one of them back for the start of the Stanley Cup Final. Ryan Johansen has been lost for the season, but general manager David Poile said Wednesday he hopes captain Mike Fisher can practice on Thursday and added that there is "a real good chance" Fisher will be able to play in Game 1 of the Final. Fisher sustained what appeared to be a head injury in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final. He missed two games, but did take part in the celebration following Game 6.

James breaks Jordan's record
LeBron James surpassed Michael Jordan for the top spot on the NBA's all-time playoff scoring list, scoring 35 points against Boston on Thursday to reach 5,995 in his career. Jordan scored 5,987 in his postseason career in 179 games from 1985-2003. James played in his 212th career postseason game on Thursday, when the Cavaliers beat the Celtics 135-102 in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals to advance to the NBA Finals.

Rangers put Griffin on DL
The Texas Rangers placed right-hander A.J. Griffin on the 10-day disabled list on Saturday because of with a left intercostal muscle strain. Griffin was forced to leave Friday night's game due to the injury after 1 1/3 innings in his start against the Toronto Blue Jays. He is expected to be further evaluated and have an MRI exam when the team returns home Monday.
Braun returns to DL with calf injury
Milwaukee Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday, just five days after being activated. Braun re-injured his left calf during Thursday's loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was on the DL for an injury to the same calf before being activated on Sunday. Braun played in just three games during his brief return from the DL.
F1 : 28.5.17
Vettel leads Ferrari 1-2 at Monaco
Sebastian Vettel put some serious distance between him and Lewis Hamilton in the driver's championship, after he beat teammate Kimi Raikkonen to victory in Monaco. Hamilton came in 7th after starting back in 13th.
The safety car was forced in to action with about a quarter of the race remaining after Jenson Button, deputizing for Fernando Alonso as the Spaniard drives in the Indy 500, collided with Sauber's Pascal Wehrlein, who was able to get out of his car. That gave a chance for a few of the drivers to make ground, including Hamilton, who had plenty of work to do to get back among the points after a disastrous performance in qualifying.
Raikkonen on pole, Hamilton out in Q2
Kimi Raikkonen took his first pole position since 2008 with a stunning qualifying performance at the Monaco Grand Prix, ahead of team-mate Sebastian Vettel, while Lewis Hamilton dropped out in Q2. His Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas was third. Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo benefitted from Hamilton's absence to take fourth and fifth for Red Bull, with Carlos Sainz Jr. an impressive sixth for Toro Rosso.
Sergio Perez put his Force India seventh, followed by Haas' Romain Grosjean. Jenson Button and Vandoorne, the latter absent from Q3, completed the top 10 for McLaren-Honda, but will both take grid penalties for Sunday's race. Button will drop back 15 places from ninth, having taken on new power unit elements, while Vandoorne will lose three places, following his clash with Felipe Massa in Spain.
