On this day: Cavani's Chelsea hint and Rooney demands United apology

Cavani 2

News stories about Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United feature.

The World Cup rolls on with England and Spain among the high profile sides out of the competition as dark horses Belgium sneak through to the last 16.

The Spanish have a chance to end their World Cup defence with a victory later today while tournament hosts Brazil will be looking to guarantee their passage through to the next round this evening.

We’ve cast our minds back to this day last year to see which stories were making the headlines.

‘Cavani: Who would turn down Chelsea?’

Uruguayan centre forward Edinson Cavani said it would be difficult to turn down a move to Stamford Bridge.

The then Napoli striker admitted he was aware of several links to clubs that were reportedly interested in him, seemingly keen to play under Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge.

However, Chelsea never made a move, with Paris Saint-Germain swooping for the forward ahead of last season.

‘Rooney demands apology’

The Mirror ran a report which suggested Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney had not asked to leave the club.

Sir Alex Ferguson claimed that the forward had indicated he wanted to leave, which sparked speculation over several moves last summer.

The paper also claimed that Rooney was looking for an apology from United, giving David Moyes an instant problem at his new club.

‘Arsenal’s ‘strong offer’ for Higuain’

Real Madrid forward Gonzalo Higuain was the flavour of the month with Arsenal fans.

The Gunners were linked with potential moves on a seemingly daily basis and reportedly had made a good offer to sign him from the Bernabeu.

However, a deal never came about with the Argentine eventually moving to Serie A to play for former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.
