All the transfer rumors from around the footballing world, including the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and much more.

Valverde out of Man United’s league

The Red Devils’ dreams of partnering star signing Bruno Fernandes with Fede Valverde suffered a brutal blow.

Shaqiri’s Reds misery to end soon

Xherdan Shaqiri has had very limited opportunities ever since joining Liverpool from Stoke City in 2018.

The 28-year-old, of course, has the bad luck in having to compete with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah for a spot in the line-up. With trio suffering no major injuries, though, it’s unlikely he’ll get a break anytime soon.

Now Liverpool are prepared to end his misery by selling him in the summer, with Sevilla allegedly keen. (Talksport)

But the German giants don’t have a buy-option on his contract, which has led Chelsea to make an enquiry to Real Madrid over the Morocco international’s availability. (Sunday Mirror)
