John Terry has emerged as one of Roberto Mancini's main transfer targets as he looks to stamp his mark on the Galatasaray team.

The Chelsea captain is out of contract at the end of the season and the former Manchester City manager is ready to offer him £150,000-a-week to join the Turkish champions.

Another player out of contract in the summer is Arsenal's Tomas Rosicky, who has been told he must play at least 25 matches this season or face being released by the club.

The 33-year-old reportedly has a clause in his current contract that will automatically trigger a one year extension should he reach the landmark.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is set to miss the rest of 2013 after undergoing a procedure to fix a longstanding Achilles problem.

The PFA Player of the Year nominee overcame the injury in order to face Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday, but now faces up to six weeks on the sidelines.

Joe Hart has received some much-need praise from Wojciech Szczesny, who has hailed to out of form England goalkeeper as one of the best in the world.

Hart has been dropped from the Manchester City line up after a series of errors, but Szczesny has backed the 26-year-old to return to his best in the near future.

Tottenham's flying winger Andros Townsend has called on his England team mates to show their World Cup credentials against Germany next week.

England's chances at next summer's World Cup have been all but written off, but Townsend believes the game against Joachim Low's side is a good opportunity to prove any doubters wrong.

And finally, in La Liga, Dani Alves has backed his compatriot Neymar to fill the huge void left by Lionel Messi at Barcelona.

Messi faces up to two months on the sidelines with a torn hamstring, but Alves believes Neymar is ready to step up to the plate.
