Transfer Gossip from over the weekend.

It’s all getting a bit repetitive really. The Luka Modric, Alexis Sanchez, Carlos Tevez and Neymar stories continue to roll on. But expect the Modric saga to run on till the end of the transfer window. Spurs have a long habit of waiting till the final moments of the window before pushing any deals through. Although this tactic has disrupted the start of their campaigns in the past so it will be interesting to see how to plays out.

  • Alexis Sanchez snubs Manchester City and Manchester United to join Barcelona in £32m deal.
  • Talk that there could be a swap-style deal in the process which will see Peter Crouch and Asamoah Gyan change clubs.
  • Stephan El Shaarawy will move from Genoa to AC Milan for a fee in the region of €7.5million plus a half share of German midfielder Alexander Merkel, who will move to Genoa for next season.
  • Real Madrid will tie up the signing of Fabio Coentrao from Benfica in the next few days.
