Talking about rumors surrounding football is a fun activity for many fans, maybe only second to actually watching football. In this new daily column, we'll take a look at the latest rumors floating around the rumor mill.

Key reminder: Rumors are just that -- rumors. None of this has been confirmed as legitimate news or fact, it's just circulating around the rumor mill. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt. And please don't yell at us. We're just reporting.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Neymar Jr. is all but guaranteed to sign a new contract with Barcelona this summer, but Paris Saint-Germain have not given up just yet. In fact, according to reports, PSG officials have traveled to Ibiza, where Neymar is spending his vacation, to try and cut a deal.
  • Jose Mourinho's first signing at Manchester United will indeed be Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The superstar striker has been linked with China and Milan, but only the Red Devils have agreed to pay the former PSG man's salary.
  • Claudio Ranieri will be rewarded for his spectacular Premier League winning campaign, as the Italian is set to sign a three-year extension with Leicester City.
  • Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly scouting Ireland international Shane Long, and could be looking to sign the Southampton star this summer.
