Don’t fret, though. We’ve got it all sorted for you in today’s video. World football lead writer Will Tidey and lead blogger Michael Cummings discuss three of the biggest transfer rumours out there and give a verdict of “fact” or “fiction” for each.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Gareth Bale has been linked with a big-money move to Barcelona and is said to be considering his option with the future of manager Harry Redknapp uncertain. But will he really leave this summer?

American fans will watch with interest as Clint Dempsey weighs his options this offseason. The 29-year-old has a year left on his Fulham contract, and he has reportedly drawn interest from a number of big clubs. But will Dempsey’s desire to play in the Champions League limit his options?

Finally, Robin van Persie’s contract saga with Arsenal threatens to wear on and on. With the Dutch striker expected to be busy all month at Euro 2012, we probably won’t know much for some time. But when he returns, will Arsenal be able to hold onto their talismanic captain?
