The final Euro 2008 match in the city of Salzburg may be a dead rubber but Greece's valedictory encounter with already-qualified Spain will not be without interest.

Giovani dos Santos appears to be edging closer to a move from Barcelona to Spurs. "Next season I will be playing for Tottenham," the 19-year-old Mexico midfielder told Spanish newspaper Sport. Giovani has undergone an ankle operation since scoring a hat-trick for Barça against Real Murcia in the last La Liga game of the season and Spurs have been reported to be monitoring his recovery. Tottenham have also been linked with a host of players from Spain, the latest being Sergio Garcia, the Real Zaragoza striker, who made his international debut at the end of last month and has been named in the Spain squad for Euro 2008.

Barcelona have agreed to sign the defender Gerard Pique from Manchester United on a four-year contract, the Primera Liga club said yesterday. The former Barça youth team centre back left for United in 2004 and played the 2006-7 season on loan with Real Zaragoza. He moves for a reported fee of around €5m (£3.9m). The 21-year-old is the club's second close-season signing after the Mali midfielder Seydou Keita, who joined from Seville on Monday. Barcelona finished third in the league earlier this month. "It's a dream to return to Barcelona. When I left I thought it would be very complicated to return and now the dream has come true," Pique said.

Tottenham Hotspur's hopes of signing Samuel Eto'o appear doomed to failure as the Barcelona striker is earning £128,000 a week – after tax.

Real's players swamped the Argentine to celebrate as the victory put them 10 points clear at the top of the standings with five matches left to play.

Aston Villa scored six goals and there were as many different scorers, but there was one strike that truly stood out. With 36 minutes elapsed and Derby in a state of shock – and, in particular, their goalkeeper Roy Carroll after two mistakes for the first two goals – Carroll sent a clearance only as far as Stilyan Petrov, standing on Derby's side of the centre circle.
