Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck says the club are 'open minded' about hiring Jose Mourinho again at the end of the season.

Mourinho continues to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, and Buck says everything will be reviewed come the summer.

The potential arrival of Radamel Falcao will not spell the end for Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford, according to former Manchester United captain Steve Bruce.

United are being linked with a £45m move for the Atletico Madrid striker, but Bruce believes Rooney will still have a big part to play if Falcao joins the Red Devils.

Antonio Valencia, meanwhile, says Manchester United are still concerned by the threatManchester City could pose in the closing weeks of the season.

City beat United on Monday to reduce the deficit to 12 points with seven games to play, and Valencia claims there is still a worry the league leaders may be caught by last season's champions.

Fiorentina remain confident they will be able to keep Stevan Jovetic from the clutches of Arsenal in the summer transfer window.

Arsenal have frequently been linked with a move for the young forward, but Fiorentina insist they will not be forced into a sale.

Andre Villas-Boas could face the sack at the end of the season if Tottenham finish fourth, according to former England manager Kevin Keegan.

Spurs fired Harry Redknapp last summer despite a fourth placed finish, and Keegan fears the same will happen to Villas-Boas this year.

Dani Alves says Barcelona must face up to the prospect of meeting Real Madrid if they want to win the Champions League this season.

Barca and Madrid are both into the last four of the competition, and Alves states the Catalan club will have to beat their great rivals at some point if they want to claim glory at Wembley.
