"That's why we were also keen on back-ups, you never know, but after the weekend before the market closed I had a confident feeling about it". What we can know for sure, however, is that these dirty tactics - of fabricating interest from big clubs to force genuinely interested parties to pay more, precluding them from conducting the deal on their own terms any longer - have been employed as an nearly sacred tradition in transfer windows.

"In the end it went the right direction, but I was a little bit unsure what would happen in the last days". They told me about the other players who it was maybe possible to get.

We will never know for sure if there was genuine interest in Mina from United.

"I asked Marco [Silva] to talk with him because he knows him very well and the player was enthusiastic about it".

Bobby Madley quits as Premier League referee after 'change in personal circumstances'
Premier League referee Bobby Madley has made a decision to end his career in English football, it has been confirmed. The pool of Premier League referees is now only 17, with a replacement for Madley expected to be announced soon.

But United's apparent interest faded as quickly as it emerged, with Everton eventually completing a deal - worth €30m - for the defender on deadline day.

"We thought it would be a very hard one because of the history of the clubs", explained Brands. "I could maybe have had Mina earlier but then would have to pay £5m more and I didn't want to spend anymore money, so that is always a little bit of a gamble and that makes it a little bit tricky and a little bit hard".

"We didn't change the offer, so that was a little bit of a gamble, but it worked in the end".

"They're very much part of what we're going to do this year and I just said to them: "At the end of the year, you'll look back on the season and you'll find that you've played many, many games so bear with me".

Muslim woman wins handshake discrimination case in Sweden
Upon arrival she told the male interviewer that she did not want to shake his hand, citing religious rules of her faith. She instead greeted him by placing a hand over her heart, as is common among Muslims.

"He has a lot of speed, the capability to work; he is strong and he is tall".

Brands said Everton reduced their overall wage bill this summer and the squad should be reduced further before 31 August.

Everton director of football Marcel Brands has admitted that the club paid over the odds to sign Richarlison from Watford.

Meanwhile, Everton's 20-year-old winger Nikola Vlasic has joined Russian side CSKA Moscow on a season-long loan.
