Football transfer rumours: Chelsea and Spurs to fight over Kim Min-jae?

This Gareth Bale thing hasn’t really worked out for either party, has it? Not least because all the golf courses are shut. Tottenham Hotspur are unlikely to seek an extension to Bale’s loan deal for next season, sending the Welsh living legend back to Real Madrid. Reopen the golf courses, Johnson!

Another loan deal that hasn’t panned out as hoped: Odion Ighalo to Manchester United. The Nigeria striker’s spell at Old Trafford ends this month, and instead of heading back to Shanghai Shenhua, he fancies a move to Major League Soccer in the USA.

Tottenham and Chelsea are both keeping an eye on South Korean centre-half Kim Min-jae, currently plying his trade in China for Beijing Guoan.

West Ham are still searching for that elusive New Frank McAvennie. Their latest target is Senegal international Boulaye Dia, who would be a £15m snip from Reims.

But most of today’s big rumours regard folk staying put. PSG still want Dele Alli, though Spurs are unlikely to sell as they don’t want to leave the squad looking light going into the second half of this absurdly hectic season. Some better news for PSG: Neymar is talking to them about extending his contract.

Leipzig’s in-demand defender Dayot Upamecano is going nowhere, even though Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea are all sniffing about.

And Brighton‘s electric full-back Tariq Lamptey, a target for Bayern Munich, is happy on the south coast and preparing to pen a new deal.
