Real Madrid’s newly appointed manager, Jose Mourinho, is looking to test Arsenal’s resolve even further, by launching a bid estimated to be around thirty five million pounds for Dutch striker, Robin Van Persie. The Gunners are in no real need for the money they would generate from this transfer. But such a good deal for the injury prone striker may be a little too tempting to give up.

West Ham have launched a newer improved bid for Brazilian wonder kid, Neymar. They have already had a twelve million pound bid rejected by Santos. The Hammers have however devised a new deal which would see the eighteen year old head to West Ham on a yearlong deal but then eventually move on to Chelsea in the 2011-2012 season.

Manchester City have secured their third signing this summer after confirming that Yaya Toure has officially completed his transfer to the Eastland’s from Barcelona.

Yossi Benayoun has completed his switch to the Stamford Bridge. The Israeli international, is said to have joined Chelsea on a deal estimated to be around six million pounds and is being paid around fifty five thousand pounds a week.
