Ashley Young and Anderson first out in January, Falcao for Chelsea and Lassana Diarra for Arsenal or City...
DE BRUYNE DE GONER ALREADY?
Oh dear. After convincing Kevin de Bruyne not to return to Germany this summer - telling him he has a future at Chelsea - Jose Mourinho has banished the Belgian to the reserves after his poor performance against Swindon last week. He will not travel to Romania for Tuesday's Champions League tie against Steaua Bucharest and wil instead train with the Under-21 squad for the next three days. There is already talk of him seeking a loan move in January in order to keep in the frame for next year's World Cup in Brazil.
BENDER NOT FOR SALE
There has been talk of a renewed Arsenal bid for Lars Bender from Arsenal this January (£20m said the Daily Star Sunday) but Bayer Leverkusen boss Rudi Voller has said there is no chance of him leaving the club. "We're not giving Lars up and there isn't even an offer," said Voller. We would argue that another central midfielder is not really what Arsenal need right now with Aaron Ramsey, Mathieu Flamini, Jack Wilshere, Mikel Arteta and Abou Diaby (he'll be like a new player) competing for two positions.
