We've saved the best for last in this Thursday edition of the B/R World Football Gossip Roundup.
At the top of the queue, we have updates on Daniele De Rossi (do Manchester City have a rival suitor for his signature now?), Willian (he's leaving Shakhtar, right?) and Nani (he's leaving Manchester United, right?).
We also have the latest on Rio Ferdinand's handshaking habits.
Those are a bunch of appetizers. Read on to the end for the main course.
Hint: It's Mario Balotelli's latest misadventure.
