Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes a £27m deal for Barcelona's Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas, 27, is close to completion.

Arsenal are passing up their right of first refusal to buy Fabregas back, as they feel they have greater priorities elsewhere.

Porto's defensive midfielder Fernando, 26, has cut short his holiday to seal a £16m move to Premier League champions Manchester City.

Manchester United transfer target Thomas Muller has signed a new contract at Bayern Munich - one that will keep the goalscoring midfielder at the German club until 2019.

Jose Mourinho will allow Petr Cech, 32, to leave Stamford Bridge in order to offer Belgium international Thibaut Courtois, 22, who has spent the last three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid, regular first-team football.

Mourinho is also willing to allow midfielder Ramires to leave Chelsea for Real Madrid if the Brazilian, 27, can be used as part of a deal for Luka Modric, 28.

Benfica's Argentina striker Nicolas Gaitan's agent has suggested he could leave Lisbon this summer. The 26-year-old has been linked with Manchester United, Tottenham and Zenit St Petersburg.

New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is considering a £20m move for Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, 29, after missing out on team-mate Thomas Muller, 24.

DAILY MAIL

Southampton defender Dejan Lovren, who is wanted by Liverpool, handed in a transfer request on 30 May. The Croatia centre-back, 24, told the club in an email that he wants to leave for a Champions League club this summer.

West Ham have offered £3m for Nice defender Timothee Kolodziejczak but will move for Fiorentina's Spanish left-back Marcos Alonso, 23, who had a loan spell at Sunderland last season, if the deal for the 22-year-old Frenchman falls through.

Roberto Martinez checked on Dynamo Kiev forward Jeremain Lens, 26 and Feyenoord defenders Bruno Martins Indi, 22, and Stefan de Vrij, 22, when he watched the Netherlands train on Wednesday.

Wigan are set to offer £3m for Rapid Vienna's American striker Terrence Boyd, 23.
