The pick of today's Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga football transfer rumours, news and gossip for 13 October, 2011. All the latest transfer rumours surrounding Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Roma, Barcelona and Real Madrid will be covered here.
Juventus have confirmed they are not in negotiations with Manchester City about a possible deal for Carlos Tevez.
The erstwhile City captain has been heavily linked with the Italian club, as well as Inter Milan and Bayern Munich in recent months, however sporting director Beppe Marotta insists the club will not make a January move for the player.
"It is clear that Tevez is a great player and we are a great club so the link is normal, but to go from that to say that we are in talks for him is misleading. At the moment we are not in negotiations with Manchester City."
Javier Hernandez's successful first season at Old Trafford has been rewarded in the form of a new five-year contract worth in the region of £80,000-a-week, his agent has revealed.
"We have renegotiated Javier's contract and he is committed for five years to Manchester United. The initial contract was good for both Javier and the club because it enabled both to see if they could fit together and if he could achieve what was expected of him.
"Both sides have met their expectations and United were happy to reward Javier after his very good performances last season.
"United came up with a very good offer and I have nothing but praise for the way they have recognised Javier's performances."
In London, Arsenal have stepped up their efforts to sign Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia in the January window, according to talkSPORT.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been monitoring the 25-year-old Argentinian since the summer and Anderlecht manager Ariel Jacobs has admitted he would struggle to keep the £8m-rated player should a firm offer arrive.
Finally, Liverpool's principal owner John W Henry has admitted he knew "virtually nothing" about English football or the football club before his Fenway Sports Group took over at Anfield a year ago Saturday.
Asked what he knew about English football before taking over last year, Henry said: "Very little. We knew virtually nothing about Liverpool Football Club nor EPL."
