The scorching heat of Brazil’s summer sun is causing a lot of stir among the footballers participating in one of the world’s biggest sporting event. Likewise, some of the latest transfer news in the Premier League is way too hot to handle.


Arjen Robben and Bastian Schweinsteiger

Manchester United’s newly appointed head honcho, Louis van Gaal is said to be keeping his eyes on Bayer Munchen’s midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger.


According to reports, van Gaal prefer Schweinsteiger over Toni Kroos, who was also rumored to be on the verge of exiting the Allianz Arena. United is said to be Kroos’ next destination. But it turned out that his teammate is van Gaal’s main target.


Aside from Schweinsteiger, van Gaal is allegedly keeping his tabs on Arjen Robben. In the event where van Gaal’s interests proved to be true, it looked like he will not have a hard time convincing Robben since he once managed the Bavarians.


Should the above-mentioned move materializes, this might impact Wayne Rooney’s playing time in Old Trafford and therefore, look for a better venue where he could feature.

Wayne Rooney has long been a subject of a possible exit after United’s lackluster performance last season.


However, it has been reported that Chelsea’s Jose Mourinho is keen on securing Rooney’s signature as his search for Chelsea’s next Didier Drogba continues. And it looks like there is indeed, a big possibility for Rooney to wear that blue jersey next season as its new manager is willing to trade him off.
