Stories about Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all feature.

Germany have been crowned as the World Champions following an extra time win against Argentina in Brazil.

The Argentines had the majority of support last night but the Germans ground out a victory and many will be suggest they were the most consistent team in the whole tournament.

Focus now switches to pre-season with several Premier League sides due to get their preparations for the new season under way with matches throughout the course of this week.

We’ve cast our eyes back to this day last year to see what the big clubs were up to.

‘Moyes confirms cash reserves’

New Manchester United manager David Moyes revealed the cash was in place if he needed to spend it.

It was around this time last year that fans started to question if Moyes was going to make any major signings as pre-season had started ahead of the new season.

Moyes’ biggest deal last summer was the transfer deadline day capture of Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini from Everton for £27 million.

“Isn't it great that the club says, 'There's no budget here, you go get who you want to get, just go and do it'. We are looking at the best players,” said Moyes.

‘Arsenal confident on Suarez deal’

The Mirror claimed Arsene Wenger had made Liverpool forward Luis Suarez his priority transfer target for the summer.

The paper also claimed in the lead of the story that the Gunners believed they could really pull off a deal, prompting them to back down from a move for Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain.

Arsenal made two offers for Suarez but didn’t draw him away from Liverpool, allowing the Reds to cash in on a £75 million deal from Barcelona for the player this summer.

‘PSG eyeing Chelsea defender’

The Mirror features again and this time the newspaper claimed Paris Saint-Germain were considering a move for Branislav Ivanovic.

An £8 million fee was mentioned but Mourinho kept the experienced defender who was one of his most important players last season.

The Serbian played predominantly at right-back excelling in the role throughout the last campaign.
