World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31761800 Rumor Redux Rumor+Redux World

With the seasons coming to a close across Europe’s leagues the rumors are starting to fly around about which teams are looking to strengthen and who the best options are. Across the Atlantic the Neymar move looks to have stalled and will come down to how much Santos are willing to hold out for. This week’s group are creating waves of their own with their highly anticipated new album, their first for more than a decade. Known individually as Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter they’re France’s best-known Electronic duo – Daft Punk. This week we’ve mixed in the rumors with ten tracks from one of Electro’s most influential acts.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763326 Gareth Bale, Tottenham Gareth+Bale%2C+Tottenham World

Rumor: To stay at Tottenham
Likelihood: For one more year


After the season the Welsh wizard has had he could go around the world and any club would welcome him into their starting XI. Strangely in the current football climate the rumor coming out of Tottenham is that he will be staying at Spurs despite failing to obtain Champions League football again. In recent years many big-name players have left White Hart Lane including Rafael van der Vaart, Luka Modric and Dimitar Berbatov, but manager Andre Villas-Boas is looking to strengthen in the summer. What may be considered to be more important is Bale’s relationship with his manager. Since AVB took over at Spurs Bale has been vocal in his recognition of the impact the manager has had on him.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31761799 Joao Moutinho, FC Porto Joao+Moutinho%2C+FC+Porto World

Rumor: Porto to Tottenham
Likelihood: Surely… Give the man what he wants!


Poor Andre Villas-Boas was desperate to get his man last summer, but failed to receive the backing from the board, which has proven to be costly. In a mad dash to get the Portuguese midfielder’s signature, Tottenham came desperately close to completing the deal only to be denied as the transfer window slammed shut. This time the Spurs boss will hope to get lucky. Villas-Boas is a big admirer of Moutinho and is eager to add more creativity to his side that just missed out on a Champions League spot to north-London rivals Arsenal.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763318 Isco, Malaga Isco%2C+Malaga World

Rumor: Malaga to Manchester City
Likelihood: Very possible


Manchester City target Isco has caught the eye of some big clubs after his influential performances with Malaga during its Champions League run. City’s director of football, Txiki Begiristain looks to be asserting himself more in his role recently, and has admitted he is a big fan of the former Valencia player. Malaga has struggled financially in recent years and this season’s Premier League runner-up could test the Spanish club’s resolve. Another factor would be if the rumors about Manuel Pellegrini heading to City are true it could look like the two could be linking up one more time.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763320 Stevan Jovetic, Fiorentina Stevan+Jovetic%2C+Fiorentina World

Rumor: Fiorentina to Arsenal
Likelihood: Odds on to happen


Arsene Wenger performed another miracle this season with Arsenal finishing in a Champions League position again. Much has been made of Wenger’s reluctance to sign big-money players, with the Frenchman refusing to pay over the odds when recruiting. This summer could see a change in policy for the Arsenal manager who has brought the club through the financial restraints he has had to deal with since the move from Highbury to the Emirates. Jovetic has been on Wenger’s radar for some time now surely leaving the Gunners boss to think ‘this is the prime time of your life’. Surely the Montenegro forward could be the missing piece in the puzzle since Robin van Persie left the club.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763321 Andre Schurrle, Bayern Leverkusen Andre+Schurrle%2C+Bayern+Leverkusen World

Rumor: Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea
Likelihood: Certain


The German international has been a long-term target for Chelsea, who finished the Bundesliga season with a decent tally of 14 goals. Schurrle himself has stated his desire to leave the club and has started saying his farewells to teammates and has a burnin desire to join, but a lot could depend on the incoming manager. Technical director Michael Emenalo is the man in charge of the Blues transfer policy and the move for the winger could be part of Chelsea’s strategy of investing in youth. Regardless of his destination Schurrle is seen as an exciting prospect for the future.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763322 Carlos Tevez, Manchester City Carlos+Tevez%2C+Manchester+City World

Rumor: Manchester City to PSG or Juventus
Likelihood: Hard to predict – a bit like Tevez.


Many of his actions have left the Manchester City fans thinking ‘What da funk?’ His on-field and off-field antics have caused the club plenty of problems during his time at the club. Tevez himself has recently announced that he would be open to a move, with the recently-crowned French Champions - Paris Saint-Germain - favorites to sign the striker. The troublesome Argentine does command a big wage and would leave Juventus wondering whether it’s worth the risk. Despite Manchester City looking to move Tevez on, the underlying issue will be surrounding his transfer is the 250 hours community service he must serve for driving while disqualified.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763323 Aleksandar Dragovic, FC Basel Aleksandar+Dragovic%2C+FC+Basel World

Rumor: Basel to Arsenal/Borussia Dortmund
Likelihood: He will be moving on


Dragovic has been in impressive form playing for Swiss side Basel and has shown off his qualities against English opposition on a couple of occasions in the Europa League against Tottenham and Chelsea. After dealing with the Spurs attack, the 22-year-old looked harder, better, faster, stronger than the opposition. The Swiss international ticks all the boxes for the kind of defender Arsene Wenger usually looks for; technically gifted, pacey and young. However it’s these qualities that have alerted other top European clubs to his availability with Borussia Dortmund tracking the youngster.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763324 Neymar, Santos Neymar%2C+Santos World

Rumor: Santos to Barcelona/Chelsea
Likelihood: If the right offer comes in


Football’s hottest young prospect with the aerodynamic hairstyle is currently caught amidst a bidding war between Barcelona and Santos currently. Barca is desperate to snap up the skillful Brazilian and his club, Santos has done nothing to dispel the rumors and have admitted they will sell him at a price they believe is fair. Neymar would fit in with Barcelona style of play and would be seen as a transfer they have been lacking in recent years - a real marquee signing rather than bringing in squad players. However a marquee player usually means a huge transfer fee and this could play into the hands of Chelsea who is looking to spend big this summer.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763325 Falcao, Atletico Madrid Falcao%2C+Atletico+Madrid World

Rumor: Atletico Madrid to Monaco, Chelsea, Manchester City or Real Madrid
Likelihood: No doubt


There has been a lot of digital love for the Falcao story in recent weeks. Atletico Madrid has said they will not stand in the way of the Colombian seeking a way out of the club, which has led to a lot of speculation and interest across Europe. Recently promoted into Ligue One, Monaco seemed certain to tie up the deal for the striker, but striker looks to be holding out for a club with Champions League football. Jose Mourinho is reportedly a big fan of the Atletico star and if all the noises about him returning to Chelsea turn out to be true we believe he could be brought in to strengthen the club’s striking options.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 20-26 31763327 Alvaro Negredo, Sevilla Alvaro+Negredo%2C+Sevilla World

Rumor: Seville to Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea or Tottenham Hotspur
Likelihood: Possibly


Álvaro Negredo is a big believer in his own talent and has recently turned down an opportunity to join West Ham in favor of trying to go face to face with some of the biggest teams in Europe. Borussia Dortmund has been monitoring the forward for a while in the knowledge that they will probably have to replace their own goal-scoring titan Robert Lewandowski. However Seville’s club president has placed a 25million euro price tag on the striker and is looking to sell him on, but many might refuse to pay that kind of price for a relatively untested player.
