Cavani wants £150,000 a week to join Chelsea

The Daily Express and the Daily Star both have Edinson Cavani plastered on the front page of their websites, claiming that the Uruguayan striker could well be on his way to Chelsea this summer.

Having failed in their bid to sign Hulk from FC Porto, it appears that Chelsea have turned their attention towards Cavani as a relevant alternative to Fernando Torres to lead the frontline. After the departure of Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou this summer, an out and out striker is one area in the Chelsea squad that is still a gaping void, especially considering the Spaniard's indifferent form last season.


Van Persie hoping for a quick decision about his future

Arsenal's Captain Robin Van Persie is seeking a quick solution to his 'club problem'. The talismanic striker recently returned to training with Arsenal, and just wants his future to be settled soon so that he can concentrate on playing, reports ESPN. This is the first time that Van Persie took the field after his declaration on his official site that he wouldn't be penning a new contract at the Emirates.

The Gunners find themselves in a familiar state of having to see their star player depart in the transfer window and would be hoping of a better resolution this time around than last summer; when Arsene Wenger did not have much time to think and ended up spending the money generated by the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri on a bunch of decent players, but none particularly inspiring.


Swansea bid for Michu accepted, Manchester United and Liverpool still showing interest

New Swansea manager Michael Laudrup has launched a £1.7 million bid for Rayo Vallecano midfielder Michu, but needs to snap up the 26-year old fast, with the likes of Manchester United and Liverpool lurking in the background. The offer is believed to have been accepted and Michu has been given the go ahead to discuss personal terms.

Michu, or Miguel Pérez Cuesta, who signed for Rayo Vallecano from Celta only last summer, scored an amazing 17 times from midfield for the La Liga club, helping them avoid relegation and finish in 15th place in the Spanish first division.


Manchester United face ever-increasing Lucas Moura price-tag

Manchester United's attempts of laying claim to talented Brazilian attacker Lucas Moura has hit another roadblock, with the youngster's price upscaled by £5 million by his parent club Sao Paulo according to reports in the Daily Mail.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been looking to add more flair to his squad with the purchase of the the talented 19-year old, and had sent the club's chief scout Jim Lawlor to Brazil in order to forge a deal with the Sao Paulo.


Prodigal son Pienaar ready to return to Everton

Steven Pienaar is set to return to Goodison Park yet again this week, with the South African expected to seal a £2.5 million move back to Everton, 18 months after leaving the club for Tottenham Hotspur.

The 30-year old was made a priority signing by Everton manager David Moyes this summer after impressing for the Toffees during his loan spell in the second half of last season, with Spurs also keen on getting rid of the player who was never really able to hit top gear at White Hart Lane.

Pienaar was signed at the North London club by former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp for a fee of around £3 million in January 2011, but with injuries plaguing him and his form deserting him, found himself on the sidelines at the club for long periods of time.


Adebayor set to return to Man City for pre-season as transfer talks roll on

Manchester City misfit Emmanuel Adebayor is set to return to Eastlands for the start of pre-season training, with his future still hanging in the balance reports the Sun. The Togolese international has been heavily linked with a move back to Tottenham Hotspur, where he spent the whole of last season on loan, scoring 18 times for the North London outfit. However, the two sides are still undecided on the striker's valuation, with City demanding at least £6 million for a player they signed for £25 million in 2009.

Spurs on the other hand do not want to pay the Citizens more than £5 million for the 28-year old, with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy expectedly driving a hard bargain with the cash-rich Manchester club.


Perez confident of Modric swoop

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has exuded confidence over the club's proposed signature of Luka Modric, telling his close friends that the Croatian is very interested in a move to the Bernebeu and that the deal will be closed soon according to reports in today's Guardian.

Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur have been at loggerheads for almost the whole duration of the off-season over Modric's valuation, with the Spurs trying desperately to hold onto their midfield ace amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester United, along with Los Blancos.
