France and PSG star Kylian Mbappe is currently outside the top five in the voting for the 2018 Golden Boy award. Having won the 2017 prize, Mbappe was unsurprisingly on the list of the final 20 contenders for the 2018 award that was released earlier this month. Instead the top five includes Justin Kluivert (Roma), Matthijs de Ligt (Ajax), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Vinicius Jr. (Real Madrid) and Patrick Cutrone (AC Milan).

Neymar’s decision to leave Barcelona was “a terrible sin on his behalf”, says Clarence Seedorf, with it suggested that the Brazilian needs a return to Camp Nou or a switch to Real Madrid. The man widely considered to be one of the finest players on the planet opted to walk out on La Liga heavyweights in Catalunya back in the summer of 2017, as a €222 million (£198m/$254m) deal took him to Paris Saint-Germain. It was suggested that Neymar needed to free himself from Lionel Messi’s shadow in order to become a superstar in his own right, but Seedorf believes the 26-year-old needs world-class talent alongside him.

Gianmarco Ferrari's third goal of the season was enough to earn Sassuolo a share of the points against fourth-place Lazio.

The Serbian midfielder has been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester United, but he recently renewed his contract with the Serie A club through to 2023. That is not to say he will be remaining in the Italian capital for the next five years, though, as Lotito has said he is open to offers. However, he added that...
