Everton star Marouane Fellaini has admitted he could leave Goodison Park for a bigger club this summer.
The Belgian international has seen his stock rise over the last couple of years, with Real Madrid and Chelsea some of the clubs linked to the promising midfielder.
The 24-year-old has signed a new deal at Goodison Park last season, but explains he could leave the Toffees for greener pastures in the summer transferwindow.
“If I have to go, I will go, if not, I repeat, I am at Everton,” Fellaini told Belgian radio RTBF.
“If an ambitious club comes for me? Why not, just to gain experience, but I am on vacation right now, I do not give it too much attention.”
Fellaini admits he wouldn’t mind joining Chelsea, with all the international teammates already at Stamford Bridge.
“They talked about me in Chelsea? If I had to go there, I would have several friends – Hazard, Lukaku, De Bruyne, Courtois…There are many Belgians! It’s good for the national team.”
Fellaini has just finished his fourth full season at Goodison Park and this could be the right time for him to leave the Toffees.
The Belgian has amassed a total of 107 Premier League appearances for Everton, and scored 14 goals in the process.
Manchester United have suffered a setback in their quest to land Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski according to the Daily Mail with the German club saying they are ‘sick’ of the speculation.
Following a fantastic season in the Bundesliga – the 23-year-old scored 22 goals to help Dortmund to the title – Lewandowski was thought to be a target for Manchester United this summer.
These rumours then became even stronger when the striker scored the first goal of Euro 2012 in Poland’s 1-1 draw with Greece last Friday.
However, Dortmund are determined to hold onto their star man, with chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke insisting he is not for sale at any price.
Click Manchester is reporting today that Italian giants Juventus are keeping a close eye on Nani’s latest situation at Manchester United.
The winger is currently at the European Championships with Portugal of course and is set to discuss his Old Trafford future upon his return.
According to reports, Juventus coach Antonio Conte is in Poland and Ukraine this summer with a keen eye on how Nani is getting on.
The 25-year-old’s future is certainly up in the air at the moment with the Guardian reporting earlier this month that he will ‘study opportunities’ this summer.
There has also been plenty of speculation that Nani is stalling on his new contract with the Red Devils, so interested clubs – including Juventus – are keeping tabs.
The former Sporting Lisbon man is certainly coming to the peak of his career at the moment, so where he plays over the next few years is very important.
Having been in England since 2007, perhaps he thinks a spell in Italy or Spain would be beneficial to him. It would also keep things fresh.
As for Manchester United’s stance on it, they will be aware that Nani didn’t play as regularly last season and they could cash in on him this summer.
Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Chelsea have made an offer for Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic.
The Montenegrin forward is pondering his options following a very disappointing season for Viola and the club chiefs recently confirmed reports that Jovetic could leave the club if he wanted to.
Jovetic has so far been silent on the matter, but it is believed he is only waiting for the right offer before expressing his desire to leave.
That offer seems to have already arrived, as La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that Chelsea have made a €25 million bid for his services.
The Blues are searching for a new striker as Didier Drogba is set to leave the club and they believe the Montenegrin would be a perfect addition to the squad.
Chelsea’s technical department was waiting for Roberto Di Matteo to be confirmed as the boss before they start making their moves in the transfer market and now that the Italian was officially appointed, the Blues are expected to be much more active in their pursuit of new signings.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Liverpool will have to spend £7m if they are to secure the services of Cristian Tello.
New Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is keen to add some young talent to his squad and Tello – who only has one year to run on his current contract – could fit the bill.
The 20-year-old has represented Spain at youth level and is highly regarded in La Liga and if Barcelona are to sell, they want a decent return.
A lot could come down to what the player and his representatives think of a potential move though. Even if a fee is agreed, moving abroad at 20-years-old is a massive step.
Perhaps Tello needs to assess whether he is going to get a game at Barcelona in the next couple of years. If he is not, moving to Liverpool and a new challenge in England might be the way forward.
Liverpool also need to decide whether they want to spend £7m on a player that isn’t proven at the highest level quite yet. They would be taking a calculated gamble on finding someone that can get them crucial Premier League goals.
As with many transfer stories, this one looks set to develop over the next few weeks.
Talk Sport are today reporting that Gareth Bale is almost certain to leave Tottenham Hotspur this summer.
With manager Harry Redknapp already sacked this week, this comes as devastating news to Tottenham fans who will be worried about their future.
In terms of what the latest is with Bale, his agent Jonathan Barnett has revealed that the lack of Champions League football next season is making the winger consider his options.
He said: “Yes, it is clear that this is a problem.
“The big European clubs already know how much it would take to do the operation and therefore if you are interested you know what kind of offer has to be put on the table.”
Even if Bale does want to leave, there is no way that Tottenham will sell him on the cheap. They will want maximum reward for one of the most talented young players in Europe.
With regards to who might be interested, there are likely to be several, but at this stage Barcelona are not one of them.
According to Sportinglife, an asking price of around £40m could be too much for the Catalan giants to afford.
Overall, there is no doubt that Bale’s future is going to dominate many transfer news stories this summer.
Netherlands winger Arjen Robben will not be leaving Bayern Munich in the off-season, according to his father.
The 28-year-old is currently on international duty at Euro 2012 where the Dutch have lost to Denmark and Germany, leaving them on the brink of an early exit.
The Dutchman has been linked with a move away from the German outfit after a dust-up with Franck Ribery, and his missed penalty in the Champions League final.
However, having just signed a new contract in May which should keep him at the club until 2015 his father has insisted his son is going nowhere.
Hans Robben told Sport-Bild: “Arjen is under contract with Bayern Munich. Arjen leaving Bayern is ruled out.
“He will play for Bayern Munich next season, no matter what.”
