Paris Saint-Germain are prepared to pay more than £40m to sign Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal, according to Sky sources. Contrary to reports from France on Tuesday of a €50m (£44.7m) bid from PSG, Sky Sports News understands Arsenal have yet to receive an offer for Sanchez from the Ligue 1 champions. Sanchez has just 12 months left on his Arsenal contract, but manager Arsene Wenger is adamant the club have made a decision not to sell the 28-year-old and will stick to that.
Chelsea are targeting four big-name transfers in Virgil van Dijk, Antonio Candreva, Fernando Llorente and Alex Sandro. The Blues have spent £140m on Alvaro Morata, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger this summer and Antonio Conte is determined to bring in more re-enforcements for the Premier League champions. Netherlands centre-back Van Dijk remains both the wishlists of both Chelsea and Manchester City despite Southampton maintaining their stance that he is not for sale.
Barcelona are expected to make a second bid for Liverpool star Phillippe Coutinho, according to Sky sources. Liverpool have already turned down a £72m bid, insisting the Brazilian is "100 per cent not for sale". That was a message echoed by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on Friday as he outlined Coutinho's importance to Liverpool.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
