Real Madrid look set to join the race for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, whose future is in doubt.
Deal or no deal? The arrival of Courtois at Chelsea on a permanent basis has unsurprisingly led to questions about the Czech’s future. Real Madrid have struggled for a goalkeeper since things went downhill for Iker Casillas and this would seem to make sense for both Madrid and Cech.

Manchester United have been given the green light to sign Inter Milan’s Colombia star Freddy Guarin.
Deal or no deal? Guarin has long been linked with a move to United and, while lacking the verve and dynamism of Arturo Vidal, would be a solid addition to Van Gaal’s midfield. And given Walter Mazzarri’s desire to sign Jonathan Biabiany from Parma, Inter are open to offers.
Tottenham are ready to offload Belgian flop Nacer Chadli to PSV in the hope of signing Dutch wing wizard Memphis Depay.

Manchester United are stepping up their interest in Thomas Vermaelen, who is also a target for Barcelona.
Deal or no deal? It is thought Vermaelen will cost United or Barca in the region of £15million, but United are swimming against the tide here given that they are direct rivals to Arsenal and that they are not in the Champions League. It could be a little while yet before this deal is concluded.
Signed, sealed, delivered
