Transfer Daily - Oscar out and Falcao to Liverpool
Chelsea may be about to off-load Brazilian star Oscar this summer and Liverpool's shock move to sign Radamel Falcao are just two of the stories in today’s Transfer Daily.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho hailed Oscar as the player he would build his success around at Stamford Bridge when he gave the green light for Juan Mata to sign for Manchester United last year, yet that plan has not come to fruition.
Now the Daily Mirror are reporting that Oscar could be heading for the Chelsea exit door, with the report suggesting West Ham forward Enner Valencia and Atletico Madrid defender Diego Godin are on Mourinho’s wanted list this summer.
Liverpool’s continued links with a move to Manchester United loanee Radamel Falcao are revived in the Daily Star, who don’t take a huge gamble by claiming Italian striker Mario Balotelli is set to leave Anfield this summer.
The future of James Milner is a subject of plenty of debate, with Arsenal keen to sign the experienced Manchester City midfielder when his current contract expires this summer. Unheralded he may be, but Milner would be a good purchase for any Premier League club.
Nathaniel Clyne’s future at Southampton remains unclear, with the Daily Express suggesting Manchester United’s long-standing interest in the England full-back will lead to a £17m transfer this summer.
Meanwhile, the next step on Jurgen Klopp’s career is the subject of heated debate in today’s newspapers, after the Borussia Dortmund coach confirmed on Wednesday that he will look for a new challenge this summer.
Sky Sports are reporting that Manchester City are not interested in the German tactician as they consider replacing boss Manuel Pellegrini, with Liverpool and Arsenal also being mentioned as possible destinations for Klopp.
