And so it begins.

While Marca is obviously a place for gossips, exaggerators and charlatans, they do occasionally get things right.

Whether they have this one correct is your call, but splashed all over their front page this morning is the 'news' that Real Madrid want to sign Luis Suarez this summer, claiming the club's top brass held a meeting in which it was decided Suarez was their man.

He will cost €80million apparently, but would have to try and force the move through himself. Because that tactic went so well last summer.

Paris St-Germain have already loaded a massive sum of cash into a t-shirt cannon and fired it across the Channel towards Chelsea this summer, and it seems they want to add Eden Hazard to join David Luiz in their ranks.

The Daily Mail repots that PSG will make an 'astonishing' £61million offer for the Belgian, and can offer the player £230,000 a week, but don't fear Chelsea fans, your lot have a trump card that can knock all that money into a cocked hat.

Yes, that's right, Chelsea are giving Hazard the No.10 shirt.




Meanwhile, Chelsea are on the verge of completing a deal for Diego Costa - the £30-something million deal could be finished by the end of this week, according to The Daily Telegraph - while they're also keen on his current Atletico teammates Tiago, Filipe Luis, Koke and Diego Godin. Also...

With Cesc Fabregas seemingly on the market again, it's not a galloping great shock that there are potentially quite a few suitors in the frame for the midfielder.

And Santi Cazorla would very like Arsenal to be in that frame, it seems.

The man they call Carzola said: "I have read that Cesc could go to Chelsea but I prefer that he comes to Arsenal,'

"He has given a lot to the club and he knows it well.

"I hope that he is happy, he chooses his club well and is comfortable there.

"I don't see any differences between his performances in the Premiership and with Barca. His record is spectacular at Barcelona and he has demonstrated that he has adapted but they haven't given him the same value as in England."

As an aside, The Times claims Cesc is 'open' to the idea of joining Chelsea, despite his Arsenal past and his arguments with Jose Mourinho.

It was perhaps slightly surprising that Fulham released Brede Hangeland yesterday, and the man himself was not impressed.

Not necessarily by the release itself, but by the manner in which the trigger was pulled. Which was via e-mail.
