premier league
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis expects negotiations over the sale of Edinson Cavani to Chelsea to begin imminently.
Uruguayan striker Cavani has been linked with a move to the London club as new manager Jose Mourinho looks to strengthen his side after taking over for a second spell in charge.

The UEFA Europa League winners will need to activate a 53 million-pound release clause to bring the 26-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

However, that does not appear to be a stumbling block for Mourinho, with De Laurentiis stating that he is anticipating an approach from the Premier League club.

Reading sign Bridge
premier league
Reading have completed the signing of former Manchester City and Chelsea left-back Wayne Bridge on a free transfer.
The 32-year-old joins the Madejski Stadium outfit on a one-year contract following a season-long loan spell with Brighton and Hove Albion after he fell out of favour at the Etihad Stadium.

Bridge missed out on promotion to the Premier League with Gus Poyet's side, as they were eliminated from the Championship play-offs at the semi-final stage by Crystal Palace.

However, Bridge is hopeful of being able to help Nigel Adkins' side back to the top flight following their relegation last season.

FIFA World Cup Qualifying: Bolivia - Venezuela
fifa world cup
Venezuela's dreams of reaching the 2014 World Cup remain intact but they will need a win over Bolivia to keep up the pressure on Chile.

And, though securing a place in the top five will see Venezuela reach the play-offs, they will be keen to avoid that lottery by grabbing fourth spot.

The Portuguese parted company with Real Madrid in May amid rumours of widespread discontent in the dressing room after a number of the squad's more experienced members were demoted to the bench.

"I am a coach who looks for a meritocracy," he told Spanish television station Punto Pelota.
