Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti has dismissed the rumours linking Juventus striker Paulo Dybala with a move to the Bavarian Giants.

The Argentina international has been linked with a sensational move away from Turin, and the Bundesliga outfit got labelled as his next possible destination after Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealed that Dybala was a player he admired.

However, Ancelotti dismissed the speculation in the pre-match press conference ahead of his side’s encounter against Hoffenheim, by stating: “Dybala is a very good player. But these rumours are a myth. We are focused on our game and the matches that follow it. We have no time to think about these myths.”

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has revealed that he wants Isco to renew his contract with the Los Blancos.

Isco has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu outfit, and with the Spanish international now having just one more year left on his current Real Madrid contract, numerous top European clubs have already begun expressing their interest in the 24-year-old’s services.

However, Zidane has put an end to all the rumours by publicly expressing his desire to keep hold of Isco, by recently stating: “I want him to renew. He is an important player. He wants to stay here, to play here. I am happy with his performance, not only for the goal but for what he did between the lines, what he helped the others do.”

Everton’s prized starlet Tom Davies has committed his long-term future to the club by signing a new five-year contract.

The 18-year-old Everton academy graduate made his first team debut in the final game of the 2015-16 season, and has already made 17 appearances – including 10 Premier League starts – for the Toffees this season. He has also bagged his first senior goal for the Merseyside outfit, during their famous 4-0 win over Manchester City back in January.

Upon signing the new deal, Davies told Everton’s official website: “It means everything to me to get a chance to be in the Everton first team and to try to stay there. Hopefully, young players in the academy can see how I have been able to progress and make my way to the first team.”
