World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31354318 No line on the horizon No+line+on+the+horizon World

Chelsea continue to show why they are the favorites to win the league title this season. But it's certainly been a team effort -- no one man band running this highly entertaining show. And just like the Blues, who have been working wonders on the pitch, this week's musical tribute takes more than just lead man Bono for U2 to create musical magic. The best of U2's songs have been worked into this week’s gossip. Read on to find out the top rumors.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349430 Franco Baldini, manager, Roma Franco+Baldini%2C+manager%2C+Roma World

Rumor: Roma to Tottenham

Likelihood: Not a chance

Tottenham are keen to appoint a director of football, with even Damien Comolli linked with a return to White Hart Lane, though surely the Frenchman’s pride will scupper that prospect. Instead, Roma general manager Franco Baldini has become a target, but the former England assistant boss does not appear too keen to return to Blighty. There appeared to be little in Baldini’s response, though, last week which might not be solved by an appropriately hefty salary. Especially if Daniel Levy says please

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349436 Ashley Cole, D, Chelsea Ashley+Cole%2C+D%2C+Chelsea World

Rumor: Chelsea to Paris Saint-Germain

Likelihood: Slim to none

Despite Chelsea’s old guard being at the heart of their beautiful day in Munich last spring, the Blues remain reluctant to bend over backwards for their ageing stars. Cole, 31, would be free to talk to foreign clubs from New Year’s Day onwards, should the impasse remain in his negotiations with his current employers. PSG are rumored to be eyeing the England left-back but, let’s be honest, is there a player in Europe the Parisians haven’t been linked with?

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349440 Hugo Lloris, GK, Tottenham Hugo+Lloris%2C+GK%2C+Tottenham World

Rumor: Leaving Tottenham already?

Likelihood: No way

With the French keeper yet to be told by Andre Villas-Boas to get on your boots, at least in the Premier League, Harry Redknapp’s old mates in the English press have grasped the goalkeeper’s inactivity and used it furiously as a stick to beat the new manager with. It’s seems war has been declared by some journalists on Villas-Boas, who has handled the two top keepers at his disposal in exactly the right way. Brad Friedel is on fire at the moment, but Lloris is the future and he will be Spurs number one as soon as the American’s form starts to dip.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349439 Arturo Vidal, M, Juventus Arturo+Vidal%2C+M%2C+Juventus World

Rumor: Juventus to Manchester United

Likelihood: Outside chance

Manchester United fans will have an almighty celebration when Sir Alex Ferguson finally gives in to their wishes and buys a central midfielder. The Red Devils manager appears desperate to give Darren Fletcher every chance of filling the void that so clearly exists in the Old Trafford squad, but Arturo Vidal of Juventus is supposedly on the manager’s wishlist, should Fletcher not manage to make a full return from his bowel condition. Chilean Vidal is rated at around £40million by Juventus – a price which would likely leave Ferguson numb.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349437 Sergio Ramos, D, Real Madrid Sergio+Ramos%2C+D%2C+Real+Madrid World

Rumor: Real Madrid to Manchester City

Likelihood: So you’re saying there’s a chance..

Despite being dropped for the recent Champions League meeting between the two sides, Ramos reportedly remains high on Roberto Mancini’s wishlist. City have been less-than-magnificent at the back lately, and the manager did not get the experienced, top-class centre-back he wanted in the summer. With Ramos seemingly no longer indispensable, perhaps the sweetest thing for all parties would be a big money move in January.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349438 Seydou Doumbia, F, CSKA Seydou+Doumbia%2C+F%2C+CSKA World

Rumor: CSKA to Newcastle

Likelihood: It could happen

If Newcastle fail to persuade Ba to stay on their terms, then a move for Seydou Doumbia is reportedly set to be launched. The £16million-rated CSKA forward is also attracting interest from Lazio and Napoli, which could mean a bidding war – which is not the kind of environment Newcastle operate in these days. But if their elevation towards the Champions League continues, perhaps Mike Ashley might loosen the purse-strings.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349432 Demba Ba, F, Newcastle Demba+Ba%2C+F%2C+Newcastle World

Rumor: Newcastle to Liverpool

Likelihood: Doubtful

The Newcastle hit-man has been in fine form this season, but isn’t every player when they approach contract negotiation time? Liverpool, who are so short on strikers that they resorted to fielding a 16-year-old boy last week, are understood to be lingering, but why the thrifty Reds would pay big money now when they could have bought the 27-year-old for £7million before a contract clause expired in the summer is anyone’s guess? Unless they receive a mega offer, Newcastle would likely tell Liverpool to walk on.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349433 Roy Keane, manager, unemployed Roy+Keane%2C+manager%2C+unemployed World

Rumor: Unemployed to Kasimpasa

Likelihood: Still unclear

The Manchester United legend and former Sunderland and Ipswich boss is understood to be itching to get back into management, but no-one saw this coming… Kasimpasa, for those wondering, are a Turkish club based in Istanbul who have recently attracted wealthy new investors. The new board see Keane as the high-profile name their team needs, while the Irishman might be attracted by a hefty transfer kitty and the opportunity to do some staring at the sun in Turkey’s warmer climes.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349431 Rob Green, GK, Queens Park Rangers Rob+Green%2C+GK%2C+Queens+Park+Rangers World

Rumor: QPR to anywhere…

Likelihood: Bet on it

The England goalkeeper moved to QPR on a free transfer this summer, but Green’s form in the first four games of the season clearly did not impress Mark Hughes, who was left to ponder: “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for.” So the manager went straight out and bought Julio Cesar before installing him as number one before the Brazilian had touched down at Heathrow Airport. Green clearly has no future at Rangers and looks likely to be out of the door in January, if not before, if reports on Sunday are to be believed.

World 2018 43 Soccer/football transfer rumors: Oct. 1 - 7 31349429 Thomas Ince, M, Blackpool Thomas+Ince%2C+M%2C+Blackpool World

Rumor: Blackpool to Manchester United

Likelihood: Definite possibility

Blackpool winger Ince, son of former United midfielder Paul Ince, is exactly the kind of player Sir Alex Ferguson would find appealing. A skillful winger with an eye for goal and a bright future ahead of him, the 20-year-old also represents on opportunity for the Red Devils boss to get one over on Liverpool, who sold the England Under-21 international for a pittance just last year. With doubts remaining over Nani’s future and form, the desire appears strong enough from Ferguson to do a deal.
