Serie A has been largely dominated by Juventus in the last decade, but a strong showing by Inter Milan last year has stopped Juventus for winning the title 10 years in a row. After an exciting season, the summer was equally exciting, with many teams trying to join the battle for a wide-open title race. Here are the three best signings by Italian clubs this summer:
The leaked current contract of Neymar with Paris Saint-Germain includes a unique clause stating he will be paid an extra bonus for just being “friendly.”
The Mets’ top priority this offseason must be to hire a new leader of baseball operations, and owner Steve Cohen must be prepared to make whomever he appoints the highest-paid executive in Major League Baseball history. In my view, he should pursue three candidates: Theo Epstein, Erik Neander and Derek Falvey. Landing a top candidate will be key if Cohen truly wants world championship-caliber teams on a perennial basis.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. continues to make history with his breakout 2021 season, and the 22-year-old star launched his 40th home run of the season on Monday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.
