- Arturo Vidal’s summer transfer to Manchester United has edged a step closer after he passed medical tests with the club, according to Metro.

- Manchester United flop Marouane Fellaini has agreed to join Serie A side Napoli but must wait until the two clubs work out a fee before completing a move, according to the Daily Star.

- Chelsea playmaker Eden Hazard has rejected speculation he could be on the move this summer.

- Barcelona are keen on signing Juan Cuadrado, who has been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United, with the Fiorentina winger's agent admitting he has held talks with Camp Nou officials.

But Alessandro Lucci has claimed he has not "officially" spoken to Barca about a transfer.

"We have been talking with Barcelona as well as other clubs for a while," he told Tuttomercatoweb.

"We have noted a lot of interest but, as of today, there are no official talks, not with Barcelona or any other club. Barcelona is represented by very serious professionals that in our conversations have never, let me repeat it, never talked about using dodgy strategies. 

"I'll take the chance to clear out things on another subject.

"The relationship we have with all at Fiorentina, personal and professional, both for me and for Cuadrado, is exceedingly good. Should there be in the near future some important, first level, talks we will sit down, analyse the pro and cons and close the deal to the maximum satisfaction of all parties involved."

- Arsenal are still interested in Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira despite suggestions the deal in on the verge of collapsing over wage demands, according to Metro.

- Atletico Madrid are looking to raid the Premier League this season for Arsenal's Santi Cazorla, Chelsea striker Fernando Torres and Manchester United star Javier Hernandez, according to the Daily Star.

- Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has suggested that he let Romelu Lukaku join Everton because he lacked motivation.

"The thinking was, first of all, the fact that Romelu was always very clear with us that in his mentality and his approach he was not highly motivated to come to a competitive situation at Chelsea," he said.

"He wanted to play for Chelsea but clearly only as the first choice striker, and at a club of our dimension it’s very difficult to promise a player that status. That reduced, immediately, his desire to come to us.

"After that Everton came with an important offer and because we want to be inside the Financial Fair Play rules, you have to analyse these situations."
