Bayern Munich have agreed to sell Brazilain Lucio to Inter Milan. "The Brazil captain agreed on Thursday to end the contract running until June 30, 2010," Bayern said.

The 31-year-old defender moves immediately to Italian Champions Inter Milan on a three-year deal, with both sides have agreed to keep financial terms a secret.

Meanwhile David Moyes has stated he will fight until the bitter end to try keep Joleon Lescott at Everton.

"I have already said there will be no players sold at Everton and I do not feel I need to say any more," said the Scot.

"The board have never sold a player from me, it will only be at my discretion. I said it at the end of the season and I do not need to say any more."

Chairman Bill Kenwright supported his manager, adding: "There is no pressure on David to sell anyone. Any decisions are his and his alone."

It remains to be seen whether Moyes can refuse another big bid from City.

Chelsea FC seem to have gone quiet after Hughes publically broadsided a blistering cannon ball, it also remains to be seen if John Terry will take to the plank of his own free will. On that note Terry is on tour with the Chelsea squad in the USA so its unlikely he will be arriving at City.

The other alternatives are Bruno Alves, Lucas Neill or Luisao, all have registered their interest in the past.


Terry NO

Lucio NO

Lescott, Alves, Neill, Luisao. Possible
