Victor Moses to Barcelona
Spanish publication Sport have linked Barcelona with a shock move for Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses. The Catalan giants have been using Sergi Roberto in the right-back role since the departure of Dani Alves and are in the market for a right-back. Moses, who is doing his best impression of Cafu since the switch to defence, is enjoying his most prolific season to date with the Blues and his form hasn't gone unnoticed.
Willian to Manchester United
According to the Daily Star, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to raid his former club Chelsea and bring Willian to Old Trafford. It has been reported £40 million would be enough to convince Conte to allow the Brazilian to leave. Willian, who was a starter, has lost his place to Pedro and with the Spaniard in inspired form he may not be able to reclaim that starting role anytime soon.
Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid
Various news outlets claim Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is set to run down his contract at Stamford Bridge in an attempt to return to Spain, this time with Real Madrid. The Belgium keeper has just the two-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal and has made no secret about his desire to return to Spain, where he still has a house, and Real Madrid are looking for a long-term successor to Keylor Navas.
Ruben Semedo to Southampton
According to A Bola, Southampton are to rival AC Milan for the signature of Sporting Lisbon defender Ruben Semedo. Saints have been keeping tabs on Semedo for quite some time as they look to find a long-term replacement for Jose Fonte. However, the Sporting player has a €45m release clause and Southampton aren't known for spending that sort of money.
Marco Verratti to Chelsea
Mediaset Premium claim Chelsea are preparing a big money off in an attempt to convince PSG into selling Marco Verratti. They report that the London based club is prepared to offer £43m and Cesc Fabregas as they look to secure the services of the Italian.
