Chelsea are ready to make a huge offer for Barcelona right-back Dani Alves, although they could face competition from Manchester City. (Daily Mirror)
Just don’t get this rumour at all. I know two years ago Chelsea tried to back up the brink truck trying to sign Alves but Sevilla wouldn’t bunch. Problem is Alves no longer plays for Sevilla.

Besides Barcelona paid 30 million for Alves, surely they wouldn’t sell him for anything less than 40 million which is outrageous for a right back.
The Blues could also make a move for Manchester City’s Brazilian striker Robinho – if his form improves. (The Sun)
What does form have to do with it? If Robinho finds his form Manchester City won’t sell him for anything less than 40 million. With Robinho stock dropping due to his indifferent play, his price tag may also drop as well.
Florent Malouda could be set to exit Stamford Bridge, with Juventus preparing an £11m bid for the winger. (The Sun)

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been driving wife Coleen up the wall by constantly singing Lionel Richie songs. A source close to the England player said: “He’s not the best singer in the world – and there are only so many times you can sing Hello to someone.” (Daily Star)
