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

Despite insisting that goalkeeper David de Gea will remain at the club, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has once again left him out of the squad for a Champions League appearance.
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...

Sergio Aguero the Premier League's best and ready to spark title surge

Sergio Aguero is as good as Luis Suarez, according to new Manchester City teammate Raheem Sterling.

Should you take on the considerable challenge of trying to list each Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Season since 1992-93, don't bother entering Sergio Aguero's name. In four seasons of eligibility, he has yet to make the grade.

It's a glaring error of omission for Aguero, who could easily lay claim to being the best striker in England throughout his four years at Manchester City, with 79 goals in just 122 Premier League matches. He has a scoring rate of 111.5 minutes per goal...

Arsenal flirting with crisis again after unconvincing Premier League start

The ESPN FC panel take a look at Arsenal's current squad and discuss whether Olivier Giroud is a strong enough starting striker to take them to a title.

Premier League Spotlight previews the weekend's fixtures, highlighting the key points to keep an eye on.

Weekend fixtures

Newcastle vs. Arsenal
Aston Villa vs. Sunderland
Bournemouth vs. Leicester
Chelsea vs. Crystal Palace
Liverpool vs. West Ham
Man City vs. Watford
Stoke vs. West Brom
Tottenham vs. Everton

Southampton vs. Norwich
Swansea vs. Man Utd

Battle of the Weekend: Newcastle vs. Arsenal

Arsenal always seem one dodgy result away from a crisis. But actually, on the evidence of Monday's 0-0 draw with Liverpool, the margin for the emergency glass to be shattered is 45 minutes, rather than a full 90. The state of the Gunners' performance in the first half at the Emirates was alarming and they were only saved by the excellence of Petr...

Juventus and Roma's Serie A title credentials already under scrutiny

ESPN FC's Raf Honigstein believes Juventus are merely testing the waters for Paul Pogba and not seriously considering offers this transfer window.
The pressure is intense on Juve and Roma managers Massimiliano Allegri and Rudi Garcia ahead of this weekend's clash.

Only five Scudetto-winning teams in history have opened the season with a defeat. All of them came under the Mole Antonelliana in Turin and it's something of a Torino trademark. The Granata have pulled it off three times, while neighbours Juventus have also done it twice. The last time they did it in a curtain raiser of a campionato was in 1974-75.

No wonder Max Allegri and the club are not panicking. "Serie A is a marathon, not the final of the 100m," he reminded everyone after Juventus opened...

Barcelona raising Neymar buyout to Messi levels after Man United interest

The ESPN FC crew respond to your questions on how the La Liga teams in the Champions League will perform, what transfers will occur before deadline day and more.

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: Neymar buyout going up after United interest

Not many people truly believe Manchester United will land Neymar this summer, though Barcelona seem to be suitably irked by the continued rumours that they feel the need to ensure the forward's future lies at the Camp Nou.

The Daily Mail reports that Barca will offer the Brazil captain a new five-year contract...

Mexico losing out with no players in European summer transfer window

Javier Aquino is just one of many players no longer plying their trade in Europe.

A loan deal taking 19-year-old Omar Govea from Club America's Under-20s to Porto B is the sum total of transfer deals involving Mexican players heading over the Atlantic this summer. And with the transfer window in Europe closing on Monday (Tuesday in the Premier League), there is silence when it comes to rumors regarding imminent Mexican signings.

The net movement between the Liga MX and Europe this summer will very likely be a net loss come Sept. 2. Javier Aquino left Villarreal and returned...
