Evening Report: June 18


Manchester United winger Luis Nani claims he is too good to return to Portuguese football.

The Portugal international admits he could leave Old Trafford this summer, but is not looking to move back home.

Roman Abramovich has been hailed as a 'pioneer' of football by former Chelsea sporting director Frank Arnesen.

Abramovich is celebrating 10 years as Chelsea owner, and the club have won three league titles, one Champions League and four FA Cups during his time at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal have been shortened to odds-on favourites to complete the signing of Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper Julio Cesar before the transfer deadline.

Cesar seems set to leave Loftus Road after QPR were relegated, and the Emirates Stadium is the most likely destination for the Brazil international.

Tottenham are reportedly confident Andre Villas-Boas will stay with the club, amid interest in the Portuguese manager from Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG have identified Villas-Boas as a potential replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, but Tottenham believe he will remain at White Hart Lane.

Manchester City are reported to be waiting for Bayern Munich striker Mario Gomez to make a decision on his future.

City are interested in the Germany international, although he looks likely to secure a transfer to Napoli.

Pep Guardiola will find it difficult to exceed the achievements of Jupp Heynckes as Bayern Munich manager, according to former Barcelona defender Abelardo.

Guardiola takes charge of the treble winners later this month, with Heynckes having retired at the end of the season.
