The domestic football season has come to a close after Arsenal’s comfortable FA Cup victory over Aston Villa, and attention will now turn to the transfer market.

In what would be one of the highest profile moves of the summer, the Mirror is reporting that Radamel Falcao could stay in the Premier League.

The Columbian striker is said to be in talks with champions Chelsea, despite a disappointing season at Old Trafford.

Bolstering the Manchester United line-up could be Arturo Vidal, Juventus’ midfield star.

Talk linking the Chilean with the Red Devils just won’t go away, and Gazzetta dello Sport say the club’s interest in the player is hotting up once again.

The Guardian and others report that Morgan Schneiderlin could also be headed to the red side of Manchester, in a deal worth a potential £25m for Southampton.

In Germany, Bild claim that Louis van Gaal wants to sign Bayern Munich’s 31-year-old Brazilian defender Dante.

And the Independent are reporting that Liverpool will speak to Burnley’s want-away front man Danny Ings this week.

A much bigger surprise would be an Anfield move for Cardiff City keeper David Marshall, but that’s what Wales Online and others are saying could be on the cards.

Aston Villa are said to be so keen to retain the services of prolific hitman Christian Benteke, that they’re willing to break their wage structure to hand him a £75,000-a-week contract – according to the Daily Mail.

While on the managerial front, the Sheffield Star says that Karl Robinson of MK Dons and Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson are in the frame to replace Nigel Clough.
