8 July: Manchester City are likely to bid a third time for John Terry's services, despite the Chelsea manager, Carlo Ancelotti, insisting that the player is not for sale, with the club confident that the soundings they took from Wayne Bridge about Terry when he arrived from Stamford Bridge still stand.
7 July: Peter Kenyon, the Chelsea chief executive, claimed yesterday that he had received a personal assurance from John Terry that he would not be tempted by Manchester City's astronomical pay offer.

4 July: Bayern Munich will maintain their pursuit of Chelsea's Jose Bosingwa to solve their problematic right-back spot.
