The big story of the day centres on big-spending Real Madrid and their pursuit of an England World Cup star.

Apparently new Madrid boss Jose Mourinho wants to be reunited with his old Chelsea right-back Glen Johnson.

The Special One is apparently preparing a £15 million bid for the Liverpool man, who could be tempted to leave a club without a manager and with severe financial troubles.

In one of the longest running transfer sagas of recent years, Yaya Toure looks finally set to seal his move from Barcelona to Manchester City.

The Ivory Coast midfielder, whose brother Kolo is already at Eastlands, has had his agent confirm that he will join Roberto Mancini's side "very soon".

In demand striker Robbie Keane appears to have a number of clubs chasing him this summer after falling out of favour at Tottenham.

The latest club to show an interest are Birmingham City, who want to pair Keano with new Serbian front-man Nikola Zigic.

Back to the managerial merry-go-round and it looks as though Manuel Pellegrini could be taking over the Liverpool hot-seat.

If he does move to Anfield then that would complete a remarkable job swap between himself, Rafa Benitez and Jose Mourinho.

Don't bet against it - we've seen stranger things happen.
