Transfer News and Rumors Update 05 July 2012

Following is a roundup of Transfer News/Rumors from various sources: 
(Disclaimer: Credibility of the Sources are debatable)

->Andre Villas-Boas Ready To Hijack Chelsea’s £35M Hulk Deal ~ DailyStar

Before you jump the gun, take a look at the source. Although, this rumor may turn out to be true, as of now one can’t see Levy give into the asking price as demanded by Costa.

->Di Matteo is afraid to talk about Hulk ~ O Jogo

It merely states what RDM spoke about during yesterday’s press conference. He doesn’t want to talk about prospective signings, as it may drive up the price further. Subtle hint: Hulk talks are still on.

->Di Matteo keeping Chelsea transfer options open ~ Reuters UK

This report covers RDM’s press conference. Quotes RDM as saying he is not worried about Pep’s shadow and Chelsea will look to strengthen the squad further.

->Andre Villas-Boas Considering Appointment of Ex-Chelsea Defender Ricardo Carvalho As Tottenham Assistant ~ CaughtOffSide

Very interesting bit of news that. However, no sources were quoted in the report. It is likely though, as Carvalho had a injury plagued season last year. But, it is to be seen if JM will let him leave.

->Hammers keen on Stankovic, Lukaku ~ ESPN Soccernet

Stankovic in all likelihood may end up at West Ham, if his wage demands are met. But, if Lukaku has a good pre-season, he may well remain with Chelsea.

->Shevchenko Could Join Blues ~ SportsWorldReport 

Not as player! Sheva has a few offers at his disposal regarding his future. He had a good outing in the Euros. Could take up coaching and Chelsea are linked up due to this friendship with Roman. May not happen this season.

->Chelsea beats Madrid in tug-of-war over Maicon ~ Marca

Although, the report seems to be written by a unhappy Madrid fan, this is one signing that will happen, sooner rather than later. Why? Just look below:

If one were to read between the lines, the Chelsea twitter handle is telling us that Maicon deal is as good as done.
