Abou Diaby is set to take another step on the road to recovery and start running in the next few weeks.

The Arsenal midfielder has been out since March with an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury, but is on the mend and targeting a return around Christmas time.

Jose Mourinho says he is yet to speak to Fernando Torres, Juan Mata or Cesar Azpilicueta yet - because they are away on international duty with Spain.

Mourinho says he will hold talks with all three players about their futures when they return.

Manuel Pellegrini is set to be confirmed as Manchester City boss in the next 24 hours – and his first job will be to decide Carlos Tevez's future.

Tevez has been linked with Liverpool and Juventus, but the new City manager will have the final say on the future of the Argentina international.

David Moyes is set to lay out his Manchester United transfer plans this week once he returns from his holiday to start work as Sir Alex Ferguson's replacement. 

Moyes will hold talks with United CEO Ed Woodward at Carrington, with the future of Nani thought to be high on the agenda.

Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby is already looking forward to next season after enduring a "bad end" to the campaign with both club and country.

The 22-year-old was part of the Spurs side pipped to a Champions League place by Arsenal, and crashed out of the U21 European Championships with Germany.

And finally, Jose Mourinho has hit back at comments made by Andres Iniesta, after the Barcelona midfielder claimed the former Real Madrid boss 'damaged' Spanish football.

Iniesta told media he was not sorry to see Mourinho leave La Liga, but the new Chelsea boss denies that he is guilty of doing 'more harm than good'.
