    With just over two weeks left in the European Transfer Window, some of the hottest players in the world are still with clubs that most analysts believe are not right for them.  This is the time the phones are ringing off the hooks as teams try to shape and mold their squads to perfection for the end run to both the domestic season and in search of European glory.

    Kaka has been one of the best midfielders in Europe for the better part of the last decade but could his time to cross the Channel finally be at hand?

    The Daily Star published rumors of a loan deal with Manchester United from Madrid for the Brazilian playmaker with a grandiose 50 million pound buy clause for the end of the season. 

    Despite his injury for the last quarter of 2010, Kaka seems to be rounding into form and could seal the title for league leaders Manchester United.

The Battle For David Luiz

    David Luiz is one of the best defenders in Europe at the moment and has been a stalwart of the Benefica back line.

    While Chelsea have reportedly made two bids in the region of 20 and 22 million pounds, New of the World is reporting that it will take at least 26 million to pry away the defender and help get Chelsea back on track before their chances at glory permanently fade for the season.

    The Daily Mirror has reported that disgruntled Togo striker could finally be leaving the Sky Blues for the Whites of the Spanish capital.

    Emmanuel Adebayor can be an extremely lethal striker for any team, but will Jose Mourinho manage to get the best out of the mercurial striker and finally defeat Barcelona?

    Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez has been on many clubs radars since the World Cup and his impressive form in Serie A makes a move seem all but done now. 

    Manchester United have long been considered the front runner for the young winger's signature, but is reporting that Barcelona may be ready to make a 25 million pound swoop to add to their already impressive strike force. 

    Will Sanchez join a team whose hegemony has lasted for the better part of two decades, or the team that plans to hold the football world hostage for the foreseeable future?

Summer Redux and Summer Prelude

    No talk of transfers can be done without at least mentioning Barcelona's never ending quest for Cesc Fabregas. 

    Despite the positive steps Arsenal has taken this season towards becoming true contenders, Barcelona refuses to let Arsenal rest easy and recent remarks by high level members of Barcelona's organization have once again hinted that he is their primary desire. 

    Will the Gunners be forced to admit defeat and take the truckloads of cash if they fail to win any silverware and Barcelona once again conquers Europe?
