Guarin to Chelsea FC? Pedro to Liverpool FC? Sneijder to snub Man Utd?

Fredy Guarin
- Wesley Sneijder, who has been linked with Manchester United, insists he is happy at Galatasaray.

"You would know better than me if I received any offers," he told BeyazTV.

"Up to now there are no offers.

"There are rumours about me in every transfer window. I look forward to the end of transfer windows so people stop taking about me. I'm very happy here with the team and the fans and I have no reason to leave.

"This type of news always happens. You just need to wait until the end of the window."

- Inter Milan midfielder Fredy Guarin has confirmed that Chelsea have held talks with his agent.

"I can not deny there is something, I haven’t spoken with Mourinho but my agent did," he told reporters.

"However, I hope Inter consider my will to stay."

- Arsenal and Liverpool target Pedro will evaluate his future at Barcelona at the end of the season, according to the Daily Express.

- Demba Ba has played down suggestions he could leave Chelsea and join Arsenal in the January transfer window.

"People talk a lot about me joining Arsenal. But there has never been an approach from them," Ba told The Sun.

"There is nothing going on in this regard. Things are OK for me at the moment.

"It's working, as the situation is turning around for me here bit by bit. You just need a bit of time to adapt when you change clubs.

"I've been in a process of adaptation while moving between West Ham, Newcastle and Chelsea.

"But as soon as I'm given the chance to prove myself, I take it. So the fact that I've often been on the substitutes' bench is nothing serious."

- Roberto Martinez has reiterated Everton's desire to keep hold of Leighton Baines, who continues to be linked with Manchester United.

- Barcelona striker Toni Sanabria could decide to join Roma next month, despite recent claims by his agent that a move to Arsenal was edging closer, according to the Daily Mirror.

- Gerardo Martino has dismissed claims that Lionel Messi could leave Barcelona next year.

Messi has become embroiled in a dispute with Barcelona vice-president Javier Faus after claiming in a radio interview that he "doesn't understand football."

The Argentina international's long-term future at Camp Nou has been cast into some doubt, with reports in Spain suggesting Faus may not be prepared to offer the player a new and improved contract, but the Barca coach has made it clear he is not concerned by the matters.

"It's not true," Martino told reporters when asked whether Messi could be sold at the end of the season.

"Personally I'm concerned with how the team plays. I'm not distracted by these issues which have no relation to football.

"I only want to sit in on footballing matters, to make sure the team plays better, that they win. It seems to me that, as coach of Barcelona, these are the most important things that should concern me.

"I cannot continue on it because I'm not well informed. I don't what the vice-president said, nor what Leo said, as these are specific discussions."
