World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843536 Rumor Mill Rumor+Mill World

It’s turning into a very interesting summer transfer window even if actual deals are scant at the moment. The Edinson Cavani saga continues to drag on, although all the signs are that a resolution is on the horizon. We’ve got some of the biggest names on the planet in this week’s edition, and to help us out we have one of the planet’s biggest stars to bring a bit of F.A.M.E. to the gossip. He has a new album out this month called X – an apt title for the ten following rumors. He might not be with Rihanna anymore but Chris Brown can console himself with a guest spot on the Rumor Mill.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843534 Edinson Cavani, Napoli Edinson+Cavani%2C+Napoli World

RUMOR: Napoli to PSG
LIKELIHOOD: Likeliest destination

It seems the Cavani saga is finally reaching the end game. Chelsea look to have lost the fight for the Napoli striker as French champion PSG continues to hold discussions with the Italian club. The deal still isn’t in the bag, though as PSG have supposedly offered £11million ($16.4 million) less than the £53 million ($79 million) asking price, so there remains hope Jose Mourinho can bring a proven striker to Stamford Bridge. We all have to wait but the signs are that Paris will outstrip London.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843533 Luis Suarez, Liverpool Luis+Suarez%2C+Liverpool World

RUMOR: Liverpool to Arsenal
LIKELIHOOD: Just doesn’t make sense

As far as we’re concerned this one still doesn’t add up. Why would a player that feels so hounded by the British press that he wants to leave the country then decide to join London-based Arsenal? The answer is of course that the whole story is a fantasy, although several stories in Monday’s papers suggest Liverpool have rejected a £30 million ($44.76 million) offer from the Gunners for the Uruguay international. Real Madrid remain favorites as far as we’re concerned.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843538 Wayne Roone, Manchester United Wayne+Roone%2C+Manchester+United World

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

Everyone is having their say on Wayne Rooney and we’re no different in the wall to wall coverage. Barcelona duo Neymar and Gerard Pique have been joined by Chelsea keeper Petr Cech and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere in trying to influence the England international to join their club. New United boss David Moyes has said Rooney is not for sale although he has fallen short of saying that the former Everton forward actually wants to stay at Old Trafford. We’ve got no evidence that Rooney will stay – it’s just a hunch – but we think he’ll be with the Premier League champions at the start of the season.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843535 Gonzalo Higuain, Real Madrid Gonzalo+Higuain%2C+Real+Madrid World

RUMOR: Real Madrid to Arsenal
LIKELIHOOD: Still on we think

The deal to bring Higuain to the Emirates seems to be fallin’ down judging by a story in the Sun which said that Carlo Ancelotti may want to keep him at Real Madrid. Despite talks between Arsenal, Real and Higuain being at an advanced stage it is feasible that the player could remain at the Bernabeu athough the decision remains in the hands Argentine international. Things should become clearer once Ancelotti and Higuain meet, but we still expect him to join the London club.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843537 Thiago, Barcelona Thiago%2C+Barcelona World

RUMOR: Barcelona to Manchester United
LIKELIHOOD: Almost certain

The wheels are still in motion for David Moyes to make his first signing as Manchester United boss. Reports in Spain says Barcelona and United will meet this week to discuss the transfer of Thiago, who enjoyed a fantastic tournament as a winner with Spain during the European Under-21 Championship. United are expected to pay just £17million ($25.3 million) for the 22-year-old central midfielder on a five-year deal.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843540 Xabi Alonso, Real Madrid Xabi+Alonso%2C+Real+Madrid World

RUMOR: Real Madrid to Chelsea
LIKELIHOOD: Possibility

This rumor is growing stronger by the day. Former Real Madrid coach Mourinho wants to be reunited with Alonso owing to the impending departure of John Obi Mikel – possibly to Galatasaray. Real are now softening in their stance because they are close to wrapping up the signing of Real Sociedad midfielder Asier Illarramendi, which would allow Alonso to return to the Premier League. Mourinho is the biggest fan of Alonso and we expect the Portuguese to pull out all the stops to land the midfielder.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31846177 Leandro Damiao, Inter Leandro+Damiao%2C+Inter World

RUMOR: Internacional to Tottenham
LIKELIHOOD: The odds are lengthening

This rumor used to surface every week for about two years, but the lead has gone so cold that all eyes are turning elsewhere for potential destinations. Southampton and Zenit St Petersburg have stolen a march in the battle to sign the Brazilian forward but both of these clubs are behind an Italian team that has emerged as favorite. Who could that be? Napoli, who have also been linked with Edin Dzeko, will need a replacement for Edinson Cavani when he eventually leaves and will have plenty of cash to splash.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31843539 Edin Dzeko, Manchester City Edin+Dzeko%2C+Manchester+City World

RUMOR: Manchester City to Napoli, Atletico Madrid
LIKELIHOOD: Don’t think so

Both Atletico Madrid and Napoli have some big boots to fill. The Spanish side are still looking to replace Radamel Falcao, while Edinson Cavani is expected to leave Napoli for PSG at some point. But what about the third party in this equation? Manchester City are looking a bit light in the striker department so we expect them to say ‘thank you’, but ‘no thank you’ should an offer materialize – unless, of course, Manuel Pellegrini doesn’t rate him. City didn’t replace Mario Balotelli following his move to AC Milan and lost Carlos Tevez to Juventus last month which leaves just Sergio Aguero and Dzeko as experienced forwards.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31846176 Pepe, Real Madrid Pepe%2C+Real+Madrid World

RUMOR: Real Madrid to Manchester City
LIKELIHOOD: Lots of factors before this one happens

The story is that Real Madrid are happy to listen to offers for tough center-back Pepe as they look to raise funds for Tottenham midfielder Gareth Bale. Manuel Pellegrini is thought to be a big fan of the hard man from Portugal, who has dropped down the pecking order at the Bernabeu. Real are thought to be ready to listen to offers of £15 million ($22.38 million) for the defender. Does Pepe have that X factor City lacked at the back last season? We think so, but a deal is still a long way off.

World 2018 43 Rumor Mill - July 8 - 14 31846178 David Villa, Barcelona David+Villa%2C+Barcelona World

RUMOR: Barcelona to Tottenham
LIKELIHOOD: It’s off

Tottenham may be looking just fine as they shape up to be one of the most exciting teams in the Premier League next season. But the north London’s club bid to sign Barcelona striker David Villa has hit the buffers after the player’s club has reached a deal with Atletico Madrid to sign the striker. Spurs seemed to be in the driving seat to sign the 31-year-old Spain international, but Villa looks like he will remain in his native country.
