Top Football transfer rumors and reports of the week
The week started off pretty dull. Standard talk about clubs showing interest in young talents was the best we heard when the week began, but things began to change real soon… all thanks to the English Premier League.
Chelsea could lose two prominent players from their squad, Manchester United could lose two more defenders, Arsenal sneaking in on Leonardo Damiao, Liverpool ready to spend big on a world class striker and Manchester City poised to make a big entry in the football market.
That was enough to satisfy out needs for transfer gossip, but Spanish, Italian, French and Russian Leagues decide to host their own parties.
Real Madrid is closing in on a striker, Barcelona on a defender, Juventus on a midfielder, Zenit St. Petersburg on a striker and Paris Saint-Germain on something expensive.
Well, here the list of the best transfer rumors and reports of the week:
Daniele De Rossi off to Real Madrid
Yes, that’s just about right! Manchester City’s long-term transfer target Daniele De Rossi has been approached by Real Madrid. According to Italian media, Real Madrid are looking forward to adding the veteran to their strike-force.
It would be interesting to see if Daniele De Rossi would be willing to leave his beloved Roma.
Will Willian move on?
Brazilian midfielder Willian is on the brink of handing in his transfer request to Shakhtar Donetsk. The 24-year-old has already asked Chelsea to pick him up, but the Champions League winners haven’t responded yet.
Willian is also interested in moving AC Milan or Inter Milan.
