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:

  • As noted here, Barcelona could be losing Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain, who are close to reaching an agreement with the player and could pay up to €200 million to secure the signing.
  • Speaking of Barcelona and expensive signings, the Paul Pogba rumors are back, with Italian media reporting the Catalan giants have joined Chelsea in the race to sign the biggest prospect in football.
  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants a high-profile striker for next season, and according to The Mirror, he is looking to sign Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge for a rumored £30 million fee.
  • Speaking of Arsenal, Jack Wilshere, who has finally made his comeback after a number of injuries this season, will be included in the England squad for the Euros this summer, since manager Roy Hodgson is a big fan of the midfielder.
