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

Philipp Lahm made his name as one of the best full backs in the world, but was trusted in central midfield by Pep Guardiola 31 times last year.
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...

Major League Soccer's rivalry week raises the question of what a rivalry is

LA Galaxy forward Giovani Dos Santos lets loose in an exclusive interview where he professes his love for those adorable little Minions.
Signed by United at age 16, Hamid's athletic prowess and studious approach to the game's finer points earned him the 2014 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year award.
Norwegian singing and songwriting duo Nico & Vinz share their thoughts on NYCFC's Mix Diskerud, the growing popularity of the MLS and more.

It's "rivalry week" in MLS again, which once again begs the question of what exactly a "rivalry" is in the context of the league.

Geography plays its part, though not usually to the intimate degree that it does in most of Europe but just as importantly, and maybe problematically, is that some rivalries in MLS exist because the league says they do.

Long-time MLS fans tend to be very suspicious of rivalries that don't have the feel of an organic product. Many of them, who follow clubs that have been...

Can Crystal Palace take advantage of Chelsea's defensive struggles?

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew hopes his side will perform better against Chelsea when they play each other this Saturday.

History doesn't do Crystal Palace any favours ahead of their trip to Premier League champions Chelsea on Saturday. The Eagles have just one victory at Stamford Bridge and that was way back in 1982. That's back before most of the current Palace squad were even born.

In fact, they've only beaten the Blues five times ever in the league in their 36 clashes with the West London side. That fact would normally lead them to go into this weekend's clash preparing for damage limitation but there is a confidence...

John Stones to Chelsea talk tests Everton resolve prior to Spurs clash

Everton manager Roberto Martinez discusses the John Stones transfer saga and their new addition, Ramiro Funes Mori.

Preparing for a testing fixture against Tottenham on Saturday, the turbulent week faced by Everton could prove a blessing in disguise. An unsettling 36 hours revealed a group of players, their manager and a chairman demonstrating bullish determination and considerable ambition.

A shock start to the week threatened to descend into a full-blown nightmare, as a transfer request from John Stones and a team on the brink of an embarrassing League Cup exit prepared to inflict potentially lasting damage.

Swansea are stylish under Monk and capable of beating Man United again

Swansea have enjoyed a strong start to the season and will look to continue their solid form at home to Manchester United.

Swansea did the double over both Manchester United and Arsenal last season, becoming only the third team in Premier League history to beat both sides twice in the same campaign. The Swans will get a chance to extend their run over United this Sunday and seem good value to get a result at home.

Louis van Gaal's United have never beaten Swansea and while that statement is factually accurate, it's also a little flattering given the Dutchman has only been in charge a single season. His squad was a team...

Which Champions League giant will miss out on the knockout rounds?

The FC TV panel have had their say, but what do you think? Vote now!

Now that the draw has been made for the UEFA Champions League group stage, we want to know which of the big clubs will fail to make the Round of 16?

Which UCL giants will miss the knockout round?

Could last season's beaten finalists Juventus struggle after a summer of transition, having been placed in a group with Manchester City, Sevilla and Borussia Monchengladbach?

Current holders Barcelona should have few issues getting through their group but what about the battle for second -- are Bayer Leverkusen or Roma likelier to miss out?
