Summer Transfer Rumors

We're still months away from the summer transfer window but that hasn't prevented the rumors from flowing. Here's a few of them floating around : Cannavaro to Napoli - Yep, that's right. They may be in the Serie B but apparently Fabio is willing to entertain a move to his hometown club. Valeri Bojinov to Barcelona - Barcelona are looking at the 21 year old Bulgarian Bojinov as a replacement for the Javier Saviola (out of contract). Micah Richards to Manchester United - Soccer365 is reporting that Manchester United are looking to put in a £20 million bid for the 18 year old. Is Glazer looking to placate fans by spending some money or can a fullback really be worth that much money? Florent Malouda to Arsenal, Chelsea, Juventus - There's nothing definite yet but the 26 year-old French International (22 caps) is talking about a move. Although he admits a move to Chelsea is unlikely with Mourinho's future there seemingly up in the air right now. Jefferson Farfan to Chelsea, Arsenal - PSV's fast dribbling Peruvian striker is being linked with a few clubs both as a sale and as a loan move (Chelsea). He's also been linked with a move to Newcastle. Arjen Robben to Barcelona - The rumor is that the 23 year old is ready to move on and make use a new FIFA rule that allows players that have played in a foreign country for 3 years to buy-out the rest of their contract and move. Barcelona are unwilling to meet Chelsea's £12m+ asking price for the Dutch winger but reportedly more than happy to throw an extra £2m in the pot to buy-out the remainder of his contract.
