NAIROBI, Kenya- With the summer market somewhat cooling as the world waits for the next mega deal to be announced, SportPesa News transfer juice was forced to scrape the barrel to fish out new tasty rumours.

However, the same names, Chelsea FC, Paul Pogba, Manchester United FC and Arsenal FC turned up from the tittle-tattle machine on Tuesday.

So, to get us going, Belgian midfielder, Yannick Carrasco who fancies the red and white Arsenal strip has seen his potential transfer to the Emirates now rated as 'imminent' after he expressed his desire to end his stay in China.

Manager Unai Emery meanwhile, came through the back door (we are assuming here, SPN-ED) at Italian Serie A side, Sampdoria and was attempting to tiptoe back to North London with two packages labelled Joachim Andersen and Dennis Praet before some hawk eyed watchman tripped the alarm and the double swoop was rejected.

Now to the transfer rumour gift that never stops giving. Man United are talking to three clubs they hope to convince to pinch Italian defender, Matteo Damian off their wage bill but the man they are hoping to keep at Old Trafford to sell more t-shirt... sorry to win more trophies, Paul Pogba, has reportedly won the race to be hired by Real Madrid CF ahead of Tottenham Hotspur FC playmaker, Christian Eriksen. 

With the smoke from Stamford Bridge receding as far as Maurizio Sarri is walking away from the manager's office, the chatterboxes that produce transfer gossip have come out with a gem. Jose Mourinho, the man who was hired by Man United in sixth and left them eighth is set for a third spell.

If you have nothing better to do this evening, we hope the SportPesa News Transfer Juice from Tuesday will give you enough ammo to engage you football crazed friends. Chao.
