European transfer talk: Featuring Cavani, Hernanes and Robinho

A former Manchester City player features along with targets for Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.

All bets are off on Edinson Cavani joining Paris Saint-Germain. It appears Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has been in talks with the club and they have met his release clause.

Real Madrid have addressed their problem area at right-back by bringing back Daniel Carvajal to the club. The Spanish Under-21 international had a buy-back clause in his deal with Bayer Leverkusen and the Spanish outfit have exercised it. He will battle Alvaro Arbeloa for the starting slot.

Veteran Italian striker Luca Toni will continue his playing career with Hellas Verona. The former Italian international is now 36-years-old but feels he can still do a job in Serie A. He has signed a one-year deal with the newly promoted side after his release by Fiorentina.

Lazio have moved to quash rumours suggesting their star Brazilian midfielder Hernanes could be on his way to Paris Saint-Germain. The Italian outfit’s president Claudio Lotito has rubbished the reports.

AC Milan have confirmed that they have given Santos one last option to meet their asking price for Robinho. They will also try to sign Fiorentina playmaker Adem Ljajic of CSKA Moscow’s Keisuke Honda should the Brazilian leave.

Benfica manager Jorge Jesus has admitted that he is desperate to sign Fabio Coentrao from Real Madrid:

‘’Fabio Coentrao is the one Portugal international I would like to see most at Benfica - not taking Cristiano Ronaldo into account.’’

Ishak Belfodil has finally completed his switch to Inter Milan today. Antonio Cassano has gone in the other direction. The Algerian has signed a five-year-deal at the club.

Atletico Madrid have officially unveiled the man they hope will alleviate some of the goalscoring burden post-Falcao in the form of Leo Baptistao. A deal for the Rayo Vallecano man was agreed a few months ago but has been officially ratified today. He has signed a five-year deal at the Vicente Calderon and has called the move a ‘dream come true’.
