European Giants Eyeing Celtic’s 13-Year-Old Prodigy Karamoko Dembele

Just a few days ago Celtic’s Karamoko Dembele was merely the club’s “other Dembele”.

Pep Guardiola Gets Fed Up With Agents And Says What Everyone’s Thinking

More so than the players themselves, this summer’s headlines seemed dominated by football’s “super agents” — the brokers of the multi-million dollar deals that have come to typify the transfer market.
