All the rumour, gossip, and news you need to know from the last 24 hours
Carlos Tevez may finally be able to get the dream move away from Manchester City that he craved for much of last season. It will be slightly bittersweet that news of Real Madrid preparing a £25 million offer comes at a time he is relatively happy at the club after his late season comeback, but surely it would be best now for the club and player to cut ties and move on. At Madrid he would be re-united with Cristiano Ronaldo, renewing a striker pairing which saw the pair win the Champions League with Manchester United in 2008. Reports have suggested that City want to use the Tevez money if the bid comes in, to fund their own offer for striking target Robin van Persie to replace him.
Another Manchester City player linked with an exit is talented youth team star Juan Roman. Roman is just 19 and scored a hat-trick against Morecambe in one of Tevez' comeback games, but is viewed to be a fair distance from making an impact at first team level. City signed him from Espanyol in 2009 and the Mirror report that no less than Barcelona are interested in signing the Spaniard. City will be hoping to make an impact in the NextGen Series this year after a humiliating campaign last year where they lost all six games, and Roman could be a part of that if he stays.
The Metro is reporting that as part of any Luka Modric transfer to Real Madrid, Daniel Levy will demand that Tottenham receive midfielder Nuri Sahin as part of any deal. The Turkish international moved to Madrid from Dortmund last season but simply hasn't had the success at the Bernabeu he or supporters would have envisioned, with injuries, form, and squad rotation playing a part. He is only 23 and highly rated across Europe, and if they could get him as part of the transfer then Spurs will have got a bargain.
The moment Arsenal fans have long been waiting for is nearly here, Nicklas Bendtner's departure from the club. With the Danes eliminated from Euro 2012 he is concentrating on his future, and Spanish big spenders Malaga are his most likely destination at present. The Spaniards have Champions League football to offer too next season and Bendtner would be wrong not to jump at the opportunity after looking miserable throughout his campaign on loan at Sunderland last season.
Another Dane, and one who Dutch supporters will not like to hear the name of, is Euro 2012 goalscorer Michael Krohn-Dehli. The striker is wanted at Swansea City by new manager and compatriot Michael Laudrup, according to The Sun. One of Swansea's problems last season was finishing, scoring less than Liverpool, and adding a new striker like Krohn-Dehli will give their forward line a big boost. The 29-year-old plays for Brondby and could be available for less than £5 million.
