The Euros are over and for many July is the quietest month in the football calendar, until the domestic leagues start again. Here are some football transfer speculation to keep us ticking over until then.
The man who turned traitor to Arsenal to join London rivals Chelsea – Cesc Fabregas, has been lined to Manchester United according to The Guardian. Is Fabregas destined to join José Mourinho again at Old Trafford?
After a fantastic performance for Ireland this summer in the Euros, Robbie Brady has been linked with numerous clubs, Everton seem to be the frontrunners who are willing to go above the £20m price tag he went from Hull to Norwich for last season.
Serie A’s top goalscorer Gonzalo Higuain has been linked to Arsenal. The Napoli striker may come part of a deal, where the gunners will have to give up Olivier Giroud and pay£40m. What’s even more ridiculous is Higuian was offered 800,000 per week to join a Chinese club, and turned down the offer! That’s £50 million for the year, Or $65 million.
