Chelsea turn from Stones to Zhang Linpeng, Man United chase Anderson

the EPSN FC crew answer your Twitter questions and discuss which of Manchester's new boys they'd rather have on their team.
Zhang Linpeng has been likened to Real Madrid's defender Sergio Ramos.

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

TOP STORY: Chelsea target "Zhangmos"

Chelsea may not be getting very far with their bids for John Stones, but Chinese media reported on Friday that they have made an offer for China and Guangzhou Evergrande defender Zhang Linpeng.

The 26-year-old right-back has been given the nickname "Zhangmos" in China due to his similarity to Real Madrid's defender Sergio...

Chris Smalling and Daley Blind impress at the back for Manchester United

The ESPN FC crew react to Manchester United's 4-0 thrashing of Club Brugge, which Craig Burley insists is a smokescreen and only hides United's issues.

Heading into the season, the primary concern with regard to Manchester United's ability to mount a serious title challenge was an apparent weakness at the back, particularly in key centre-half positions.

A tally of 37 goals conceded in the 2014-15 campaign was certainly not a poor return -- and only five more than the league's best defence of Chelsea -- but none of Louis van Gaal's central defensive options had ever truly convinced.

The fact that eight different players started at least two league...

Manchester City eyeing another legendary victory against Watford

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says his side are focused only on Watford in the Premier League, after being handed a tough group stage draw in the UEFA Champions League.

When Joe Hart walks out onto the flat green Etihad playing field on Saturday to start Manchester City's game against Watford, it's a pretty good bet he will not be affording his early 80s City goalkeeping namesake Joe Corrigan too many thoughts.

However, wherever ex-Aston Villa, Coventry, Oxford and Manchester City left-back Bobby McDonald is these days, he most certainly will be moved to give the ex-City and England giant a quiet few moments in his own prematch reflections.

City and Watford have...

Nasarawa United make history as Nigerian football continues to progress

Nasarawa United's 2-1 win over Kano Pillars last Sunday was so seismic it reverberated around the world.

Not many news items about Nigerian football, certainly not ones concerning the domestic football league, make such a splash, so this was one of massive significance.

Here's why: Kano Pillars were playing at home. Kano Pillars had not lost at home since 2003. That's 12 years or, if you please, 202 games. I dare anyone to show me a club anywhere else in the world with such a record!

Many negative...

Michel Platini curiously quiet in bid to replace Blatter as FIFA president

UEFA President Michel Platini refused to speak about his candidacy to be the next FIFA President at a press conference in Monte Carlo, Monaco, but said he had "his UEFA hat on."
Former South Korean FA president Chung Mong-joon has vowed to fix "corrupt" FIFA after formally announcing his bid to replace Sepp Blatter at the helm of world football's governing body.
The former French international captain is favoured by many to take over as FIFA president after Blatter steps down. His former French international teammate, Luis Fernandez, speaks his praises and supports his decision to run for the position.
Michel Platini refused to get drawn into questions about his bid to become the next FIFA president.

MONACO -- The media crowded into Monaco's Grimaldi Forum hoping to hear the front-runner -- among confirmed candidates, at least -- in the race to succeed Sepp Blatter as FIFA president in February speak for the very first time and got -- nothing.

Big fat zero, or just about.

UEFA President Michel Platini held his traditional seasonal kickoff news conference on the banks of the Mediterranean a day after the Champions League group draw but made it very clear he wasn't going to answer any questions...
