5 World Transfer Rumors Fans Will Go Crazy About
Everyone loves a good gossip about transfers.
With seasons climaxing around the globe, thoughts are turning towards the summer and the potential movers and shakers in the market.
Clubs across Europe will be on the look out for fresh talent, with the continent's big spenders getting especially twitchy.
Here's a glance at five deals that could get pulses racing.
Stevan Jovetic Landing a Move to London

Fiorentina's prolific forward Stevan Jovetic is primed for a move, but where?
After nearly five years in Florence, the Montenegro international seems certain to cash in his chips for much bigger ones next season.
Arsenal have been linked with a move and reports have suggested the Gunners are favourites to get him.
Jovetic's 12 goals so far this season illustrate his importance to the Viola's bid for a champions league place and, if they must lose him, he has been encouraged to hold out for the best move possible.
Neymar to Bayern Munich

Neymar has seemingly been touted as the next Brazilian superstar ever since he made his debut for Santos as a 17-year-old in 2009.
However, opinion seems divided over whether he'll take the plunge and move to Europe.
Expert analysis points towards Neymar continuing his career in his homeland for a while longer, citing his current wages and likely unsuitability to the English game as reasons.
If not the EPL, then what about somewhere else in Europe? Somewhere where he might get a bit more time on the ball.
Would Pep Guardiola be tempted to mark his return to football with Bayern Munich with an audacious bid?
Karim Benzema to Anywhere but England

Despite relatively limited opportunities, Karim Benzema has made his mark with Real Madrid this season.
In 19 starts, the France international has scored 10 goals and contributed seven assists (via whoscored.com).
Benzema has let his frustration at not being a regular starter bubble to the surface at times this season, and Madrid's reported interest in Edinson Cavani might mean he gets the chance to start over in Serie A.
Victor Valdes to Arsenal

Anyone looking for a top quality goalkeeper will look no further than Barcelona's Victor Valdes.
The 31-year-old has already said he will not sign a new deal at the Camp Nou and will leave when his deal runs out in a year's time.
Valdes' association with Barca goes back 20 years, and the temptation of a fresh challenge has proved too much.
The question is, will interested clubs be prepared to wait another 12 months for him, or will they dive in now?
It would be some confirmation that the Gunners mean business again with Valdes between the posts.
Mario Gomez to Manchester City

It's been quite a year for Mario Gomez at Bayern Munich.
Last season he was the main man, scoring 38 times, and carried the burden of his side's goal-scoring responsibilities virtually on his own.
Wind forward the this season and the player who was brought in to help share the load up front, Mario Mandzukic, has ended up replacing him.
Bayern have wrapped up the Bundesliga largely without Gomez, who has scored only eight times in 20 games (via soccerbase.com).
It remains to be seen what new boss Pep Guardiola will make of the squad when he arrives in the summer but, if he wants to make immediate changes, Gomez will be on the market.
With Manchester City desperate to reclaim the Premier League title after this season's meek surrender, the German international looks just the man to start their resurgence.
