World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777308 Rumor Redux: May 27 - June 2 Rumor+Redux%3A+May+27+-+June+2 World

The season may well be over in Europe (yes, we know Spain has one round to go) but there is still so much to be decided on the transfer front that we don’t know where to start. Neymar has already decided where his future lies, but that still leaves plenty of unanswered questions from some of Europe’s biggest stars. We are unapologetic in our determination to nail down some of the rumors that are doing the rounds and that should provide a bit of a clue to this week’s artist, although we suspect the picture has given it away. We’ve got ten tracks by Rihanna to pepper the gossip and bring a bit of spice to the mix.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777300 Wayne Rooney Wayne+Rooney World

RUMOR: Leaving Manchester United
LIKELIHOOD: We think he’ll stay


The future of Wayne Rooney remains up in the air since he supposedly handed in his second transfer request towards the end of the season. We say supposedly because many think that there was a misunderstanding on Ferguson’s part and that Rooney was only expressing concerns about the way he was being used in matches. PSG and Real Madrid have been mentioned as possible destinations, although interestingly Chelsea and Bayern Munich are favorites with the bookmakers. However, with Ferguson moving upstairs and Moyes installed as the new boss at Old Trafford we reckon that Rooney will perform another U-turn and stay at United. Moyes was, of course, the man who handed Rooney his Premier League debut while at Everton and although the two had a fall-out over the England international’s autobiography the pair made up in 2009. United’s chief executive David Gill reckons Rooney will stay and right now so do we.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777302 Edinson Cavani Edinson+Cavani World

RUMOR: Napoli to Real Madrid
LIKELIHOOD: Better chance than most


Now that Neymar has come clean and admitted he will be a Barcelona player next season all attention is focused on what now for Real Madrid in the transfer market. Current thinking is that that Cavani’s future will be settled in a straight battle between Real Madrid and Manchester City, although Chelsea are also thought to be an interested party. Cavani has come out once again to say that he is ignoring all the speculation to focus on Napoli even though the season has finished. If we had to take a gamble we’d plump for Real Madrid but you never know.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31775433 Radamel Falcao Radamel+Falcao World

RUMOR: Atletico Madrid to Monaco.
LIKELIHOOD: Confirmed.


We know only too well that money plays a big part in the decision-making process of most footballers (how much do they actually need?), but the Rumor Redux gang have been left slightly bemused by the speculation that Falcao is on the brink of joining Monaco, recently promoted to Ligue 1. Sure, they’ve just signed Joao Moutinho and James Rodriguez from Porto and have a wish list as long as your arm, but does Falcao really want to play in front of 18,000 fans each week on a ground built on car park and a million miles away from European football? Apparently so. All the confident noises are coming from the principality and we hope it stays that way and that the Colombian gets to ply his trade on the big stage.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777306 Robert Lewandowski Robert+Lewandowski World

RUMOR: Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich
LIKELIHOOD: Just end the misery


Just about everybody has had their say on the future of the Borussia Dortmund striker who famously scored four goals against Real Madrid in the Champions League. All of the lights are pointing towards the European and Bundesliga champions and it’s hard to disagree especially when even Jupp Heynckes jumps to the same conclusion. His agent also claims the Poland striker will be at the Allianz Arena next season so let’s just put an end to the speculation and say it. Please.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777301 Cesc Fabregas Cesc+Fabregas World

RUMOR: Barcelona to Manchester United
LIKELIHOOD: Unlikely


It took two years for Fabregas to finally land his dream return to Barcelona, but one of the UK papers thinks that Manchester United would like to lure the former Arsenal midfielder to Old Trafford. Now I know anything can happen in the transfer world but would the Spaniard really have spent all that time trying to secure a move to the Camp Nou and then throw it all away again? There was a time when Fabregas was spending too much time on the bench at Barca but those days are over now. With Neymar in the squad from next season exciting times are on the horizon and Fabregas surely wants to be a part of it.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777304 Luka Modric Luka+Modric World

RUMOR: Real Madrid to Manchester United
LIKELIHOOD: They can only try


Suddenly the future of Modric is back in the spotlight after his complicated and acrimonious move from Tottenham last year. The Croatian has been linked with moves to both Manchester United and Chelsea in the last few days, and with Jose Mourinho bound for a return to Stamford Bridge one suspects that the blue camp would be favorite to secure his signature. There was time when Modric was struggling to get into the starting line-up as Mourinho struggled to find room for both him and Mesut Ozil, but both players are getting game time now. In our view Chelsea’s midfield is not an area that needs strengthening and even if it did it would be an enforcer in the mould of Marouane Fellain that is required. United can give it a go but he’s likely to stay in Spain we think Shinji Kagawa will have a breakout season in any case.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777309 Manuel Pellegrini Manuel+Pellegrini World

RUMOR: Malaga to Manchester City
LIKELIHOOD: Nailed on


One of the diamonds in the managerial world is heading to Manchester City no matter what the Chilean says. Pellegrini is leaving Malaga at the end of the season and has finally hinted that City is an option. The papers aren’t talking about anyone else to take the hot-seat vacated by Roberto Mancini, who was sacked after the club’s disappointing FA Cup final defeat to Wigan. That points in only one direction for us and it will be interesting to see how he fares.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777303 Luis Suarez Luis+Suarez World

RUMOR: Liverpool to Real Madrid
LIKELIHOOD: Will these rumors ever go away?


One of the less sensible papers this week suggested that Real are looking to pair both Suarez and Edinson Cavani at the Bernabeu, however one of the more reputable tabloids thinks otherweise. The Sun reckons Real will make a bid for Suarez because the Liverpool striker is a lot cheaper than his fellow Uruguayan Cavani. The nine-time European champions can break it off now. They may well have a chance of landing Cavani but despite Suarez’s troubled time at Liverpool, the flesh-eater is happy at Anfield and wants to stay.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777305 Marouane Fellaini Marouane+Fellaini World

RUMOR: Everton to Manchester United
LIKELIHOOD: Possible


There’s no doubting the talent of the Belgium midfielder, who scored 12 goals last season – including the only goal against United on the opening day of the campaign way back in August – but is he about to follow David Moyes to Manchester United? His buy-out clause is reportedly £24 million ($36 million) and he has made no secret of the fact he wants Champions League football. Moyes spent a lot of his time resisting interest from other clubs in his star players but the situation has now changed. Most accept that Fellaini would bring something to the table were he to sign for the Red Devils and we think Moyes would like to make that idea a reality. Will he go or will he stay? Our money is on a move to Old Trafford.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: May 27-June 2 31777310 Stevan Jovetic Stevan+Jovetic World

RUMOR: Fiorentina to Juventus
LIKELIHOOD: More likely than Arsenal


Poor Arsene Wenger. Just when he gets his hands on a pot of cash it seems that one of his targets is slipping away from his grasp. Stevan Jovetic, it seems, would prefer the sunshine of Turin to England - the land of the umbrella. The Montenegrin has been a long-time target for the Gunners but the player’s agent says his client would prefer to stay in Italy, thus scuppering Wenger’s hopes of strengthening his flimsy strikeforce.
