Liverpool eye Real Madrid's Denis Cheryshev; Man Utd rush De Gea deal

The ESPN FC crew weigh in on Mario Balotelli being left out of Liverpool's pre-season trip.

As always, Transfer Talk has its finger on the pulse when it comes to all the latest rumours and gossip. See all the latest deals here.

TOP STORY: Liverpool move for Denis Cheryshev

Denis Cheryshev plays for Real Madrid. Well, apparently anyway as he's hardly first-choice and spent last year on loan at Villarreal where he made 26 La Liga appearances.

The Russian winger admitted last month he was unsure over his future, saying: "I don't know where I'll be next season." And now Liverpool are...

Diego Costa's ongoing injury issues might force Chelsea to buy

The ESPN FC panel respond to your tweets about the upcoming Premier League campaign and why managers continue to be baited by Jose Mourinho.

Chelsea's pre-season results may have been less than inspiring to date but they pale to insignificance when compared to the nagging doubts about centre-forward Diego Costa's ability to maintain match fitness.

Saturday sees the Blues begin the defence of their Premier League title with a home game against Swansea and they may have to manage without the services of their talismanic striker, who hobbled off early in the second half of last week's friendly against Barcelona in Washington and hasn't played...

Ronaldinho debuts for Fluminense and shows a glimpse of his former genius

Ronaldinho's much-anticipated debut for Fluminense passed with little fanfare but a key contribution.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- "How many today, João? Thirty thousand?"

"They said 40 on the radio. Fifty, even. Everyone will want to be there."

Two metro stops from the Maracanã and there is an energy in the train carriage that cannot merely be put down to it being game day. The Fluminense fans are out in more force than usual ahead of the battle of the Tricolors against Grêmio. Indeed, it's not just any match, for there is to be a special guest; a royal visit in footballing terms. Ronaldinho is...

Wickham has potential but Crystal Palace need a striker to contribute now

Connor Wickham has loads of potential, but will he realise it at Crystal Palace?

When you wish really hard for something and it doesn't happen, anything else just seems underwhelming. That's exactly what's happened at Crystal Palace this week. After a month of hoping that Loic Remy or Charlie Austin would be joining, the Eagles instead have unveiled Connor Wickham.

It's not a bad signing, but it certainly ranks as one of the more underwhelming transfers in Palace's history. But when you take a closer look at Wickham, you'll find a footballer with a lot of potential.

Rafael set to leave Manchester United after falling out of favour

The ESPN FC crew discuss the possibility of Manchester United letting De Gea leave after the 2015 season on a free transfer.
The ESPN FC crew debate which top four Premier League club need to make more signings to challenge Chelsea for the title.
Rafael was a Premier League champion three times with Manchester United.

Of the final Manchester United team selected by Sir Alex Ferguson, in May 2013 at West Bromwich Albion, only two are expected to be in the starting XI against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. 

Louis van Gaal has indicated that Michael Carrick and Phil Jones will be in the lineup. Anders Lindegaard, Jonny Evans, Antonio Valencia and Javier Hernandez are still at the club. David De Gea, who was No. 1 for Ferguson's last season, is too, but for how long?

Rafael da Silva did not play that day at...
