Transfer Rater: Harry Maguire to Manchester United, Wilfried Zaha to Manchester City
Things change in the blink of an eye in football. The Football Whispers Index takes the latest transfer rumours and gives them a score out of five; the higher the score, the more realistic and reliable the Whisper.
Here are today's top five emerging whispers. And keep an eye on Transfer Talk for all the latest gossip.
Danny Drinkwater to West Ham
Drinkwater's frustration at being frozen out at Chelsea has alerted West Ham, who are keen on bringing the title winner with Leicester City to the club. The 28-year-old is set to reconsider his future at the end of the season, and the Telegraph say a move would appeal as it means Drinkwater wouldn't have to move house again. The midfielder has started just five games in the Premier League for Chelsea since joining last summer for £35million, though West Ham would need a cut-price deal to push any transfer through.
Harry Maguire to Manchester United
Jose Mourinho is a big fan of the £35m-rated Leicester City defender having been impressed with his performances this season for the Foxes, according to the Mirror. A raft of scouting reports on the 25-year-old have landed on Mourinho's desk, and the Portuguese is keen on pursuing a deal. It could prove to be more bad news for Chris Smalling, who has already lost his England place to Maguire. Now it appears his place at Manchester United could be in jeopardy from the very same player.
Javier Hernandez to D.C United
The ambitious MLS outfit are about to begin life under new ownership, and will plot a series of big moves this summer according to the Washington Post. The Mexican star is at the top of the list as he looks to end his West Ham hell, while United want to make a major splash in the market to get the fans on their side. Everything depends on the new owners coming in at United however, who have also been linked with moves for Mario Balotelli and Carlos Tevez.
Thiago to Manchester City
Pep Guardiola is looking to once again reunite with Thiago, having worked with the Spanish midfielder at both Barcelona and Bayern Munich. With David Silva, Fernandinho and Yaya Touré all in their 30's, the Daily Mail reports that Guardiola is aiming to freshen up the midfield department and views his former pupil has the ideal man. As well as bringing the 27-year-old through at Barca, the Catalan-born coach also signed him in 2013 while managing Bayern. A fee of £50m is mentioned for Thiago, who is under contract with the Bundesliga giants until 2021.
Wilfried Zaha to Manchester City
Manchester City are not resting on their laurels after winning the Premier League, and are already eyeing up targets for next season. The Crystal Palace winger would be a boost to City's hopes of securing a Champions League crown, according to the Sun, and Pep Guardiola has reportedly been impressed with Zaza's versatility. The 25-year-old would likely command a fee in the region of £50m, and he would have no reservations about returning to Manchester despite a previously unhappy spell with United.
