Premier League: Top 8 potential rival transfers (1)

If you would kindly cast your minds back to this year's January transfer window, many eyebrows were raised when Manchester United - a team struggling badly even to keep in touch with the top four after the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson - managed to sign Juan Mata from title-chasing Chelsea.

The Red Devils' status as one of the biggest and most reputable clubs in world football meant that their successful efforts to sign a top-class footballer even when enduring such a difficult spell was not a particular shock.

However, what was a surprise was that Chelsea - who have been fighting tooth-and-nail with Manchester United for domestic supremacy for a number of years now - allowed one of their most-prized assets to join a fierce rival.

The history of the Premier League is littered with several examples of these sorts of moves between rival teams, with many - most notably former England defender Sol Campbell's switch from Tottenham to Arsenal - understandably creating huge controversy and ill feeling.

With the next summer window now quickly approaching on the horizon, GMS have noticed a number of rumours concerning potential transfers of this nature beginning to seriously gather pace over recent weeks and months.

Here, we take a little look at eight of those rumours and decide just whether or not we think they stand a chance of happening.
