Liverpool keen on signing Joe Hart, Ashley has never thought of sacking Pardew, big clubs in for Fulham's Roberts
BELGIUM BOSS BACKS HAZARD MOVE
Well, doesn't look like Belgium coach Marc Wilmots is going to be on Jose Mourinho's Christmas card list this year, after the manager seemed to suggest that Eden Hazard should leave Chelsea for PSG, in quotes reported by the Metro.
Rumours have linked Hazard with a move to the French capital, rubbished by Chelsea, but now the attacking midfielder's international manager has stepped in to offer his view.
"It's an opportunity to be taken into serious consideration if he wants to be part of the category of players who make the difference," Wilmots said.
"It's time to raise his level. Hazard and Ibrahimovic are two different players - but highly complementary."
A £60million fee has been mooted, but the player has stayed very quiet on any talks of a move. Would be a massive blow to Chelsea, that's for sure.
UNITED AFTER COLOMBIAN DEFENDER
If Manchester United were going to buy a full-back this summer, we expected that a left-sided player would fill the first few spaces at the top of the shopping list, but The Sun today claim that right-back Santiago Arias is amongst the most likely names to join the Old Trafford ranks.
Arias is a Colombian defender currently playing for PSV in the Netherlands, having only joined last summer on a €1.6million deal from Sporting Lisbon. However, with the 22-year-old impressing in the Eredivisie this season, United are reportedly prepared to pay four times that fee to bring Arias to England. Arias has also played three times for Colombia, and will hope to be part of the squad that travels to Brazil for the World Cup.
Surely any arrival would spell the end of Rafael at the club, given that United already have Chris Smalling and Phil Jones capable of playing in such a position?
ARSENAL INTERESTED IN JAY RODRIGUEZ
Interesting 'Exclusive' in the Daily Star, who go big on the claim that Arsenal are tracking the progress from injury of Southampton's Jay Rodriguez.
The paper claim that Arsenal have made an enquiry as to the availability of the 24-year-old, who has just been ruled out of action for up to six months with ruptured knee ligaments. Rodriguez has scored 17 goals this season for Southampton, and made his England debut against Chile last November.
The paper also report that the Saints are hopeful that Rodriguez will sign a new five-year deal at the club, so they're leaving their options pretty open.
