Hamann is set to make a record with the shortest transfer spell in Premiership history. Liverpool had agreed to let the player go and at one time the player was destined to sign for Bolton. Then Manchester City entered the picture and wanted the German veteran. Eventually Hamann signed for Bolton, but in the same day he had a change of heart and will sign for Manchester City now. Hamann is officialy a Bolton player, and the club agreed to let him go after a short while of signing the contract.

Reports from Spain are saying that Benitez is considering to bid for Argentinian veteran Roberto Ayala. The 33-year-old has less than a year remaining on his current contract and has indicated that he is ready to test himself in the Premier League.

Benitez is also waiting on the Juventus situation. It seems like he’ll wait for the verdict before he concludes his business elsewhere.
Manchester United

Looks like the Red Devils aren’t that fun to play at anymore. With the recent C.Ronaldo statements of wanting to leave, Gabriel Heinze is said to be desperate to go, and Real Madrid is the destination. Manchester are having a real problem at their hands if that turns out to be true. The club is probably looking for a replacement for Nistelrooy, who is also said to be going to Madrid.
Real Madrid

Speaking of which, Madrid are posed to snatch Franck Ribery under the noses of Lyon and the Premiership clubs linked to him. The player himself have made contradicting statements, saying he wants to play for Lyon in one statement and for an English club in another.

Real Madrid also claim they are close to capturing Italy’s World Cup-winning captain Fabio Cannavaro from Juventus.
The rest..

Portsmouth look like they have a mini-sugar daddy in their Russian owner. The English club are making serious bold bids for international players, and just recently the bid for Real Betis forward Edu, which was initially rejected. They are also close to completing the £10m signing of PSV Eindhoven striker Jefferson Farfan plus the £4m acquisition of Croatian midfielder Darijo Srna.
Seems like Huth didn’t really complete a move to Middlesborough from Chelsea as the transfer is encountering problems.

Blackburn manager Mark Hughes believes he can still attract Mido to Ewood Park.

After Sol Campbell left the club, Arsenal are trying to sign WBA’s Curtis Davies as a replacement. They are also linked to Buffon, but the goalkeeper is also linked to Milan, which is his most likely destination, knowing how Italians usualy stay home.

Aston Villa has pulled the plug on Baros’ move to Hamburg, after the German club couldn’t meet Villa’s demands.

Italian and Juventus defender Gianluca Zambrotta has confirmed he has received an offer from Spanish champions Barcelona. He has confirmed he is set to leave Juventus this summer.
