The football world is awash with gossip! Transfer Talk is monitoring the whispers ahead of all the summer moves. Check out the latest deals and potential deals here.

TOP STORY: Chelsea's Conte would love Harry Kane

Chelsea supporters should not read too much into preseason results

Tom Starke talks to ESPN FC about Chelsea's title chances and how James Rodriguez will fare at Bayern.
Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts discuss the fallout following Kenedy's offensive comments about China on social media.
N'Golo Kante chats exclusively with FC's Jason Dasey to lay out his hopes for the defending Prem League champions this season.
Gary Cahill speaks exclusively with ESPN FC's Jason Dasey following Chelsea's first game of ICC Singapore.

When it comes to preseason friendlies, the actual scoreline is rather irrelevant. Sure, victory is always the most preferable outcome and being able to perpetuate that winning habit is a valuable quality. Nevertheless, no matter how much television commentators and event promoters want to hype the occasion, these matches are essentially glorified training exercises that happen to take place in exotic locations in front of tens of thousands of local spectators.

It's the 95th minute of extra time, the stadium is Tigres' El Volcan, the year is 2016, and Las Aguilas are seconds away from closing their centennial year -- and what better way to do it than in an Apertura final? Alvarez rose above Tigres' defense and connected with a header that gave America a 1-0 lead. America's faithful felt another title coming their way, but Tigres tied...

AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini shares his thoughts on the club's summer of spending with ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti.
Milan head coach Vincenzo Montella suggests Carlos Bacca is nearing an exit from the Rossoneri.

It's been a busy summer for AC Milan since Yonghong Li's takeover in April, as the Rossoneri have worked relentlessly to strengthen the squad. Ten new players have arrived and manager Vincenzo Montella has described it as a "summer of dreams" now that he has a squad capable of pushing the club forward.

A sixth-place finish in Serie A last season was enough to book their spot in the Europa League qualifying round. While there were jubilant scenes at the San Siro when their return to Europe...

Inconsistency, expectation have driven Ross Barkley and Everton apart

Stewart Robson breaks down the curious case of Ross Barkley, who seems to be wasting his potential away.

Much of the criticism directed toward Ross Barkley centres on decision-making on the pitch. With Everton manager Ronald Koeman confirming Barkley has rejected a new contract and is eyeing a new challenge, this critique now applies to decisions off the pitch.

With none of the six teams above Everton seemingly guaranteeing regular first-team football, this feels more like a quick dart for the exit than a natural progression. Talk of a new challenge seems cheap while Barkley...
