23.38 BST ...and that's that for the blog for tonight. It's been a genuinely exciting one, with Silvio Berlusconi confirming he's selling his best two players, and hopefully there'll be plenty more where that came from tomorrow. Thanks for joining us - we'll be back at 0800 BST.
23.33 BST While AC Milan appear to be selling off their title hopes, there's a chance Inter could lose some big names too. Club president Massimo Moratti has had a chat with his club's official website on various subjects following a friendly with Trentino, although you may struggle to make sense of a lot of it.
On the reports Wesley Sneijder could potentially follow Samuel Eto'o to Anzhi: "You never know whether to call these things a risk or call them... It's possible that there could be such a risk. As for me, I consider Sneijder to be quite a decisive player for Inter, beyond what can be the proper attention and willingness from other teams."
Quite what that means we're unsure. Asked about Maicon's future, he - again, rather confusingly - said: "Well, now they're all here..."
On whether Giampaolo Pazzini will stay after his recent tantrum, he said: "You have to rate Pazzini because he's a proper centre forward and when he's in form he scores all the time. This we already know. He has a strong-willed character. I'll repeat what I've already said before: it may so happen that there are necessities from a coaching standpoint that influence whether players are to be bought or sold. It's nothing dramatic, but I'm genuinely sorry about it."
Regarding a potential signing - Sao Paulo wonderkid Lucas Moura - he said: "He's certainly a player of great talent, but right now it's also possible to make a few sacrifices here and not take everyone that appeals to you. But we're watching him closely."
23.07 BST Manchester City forward John Guidetti has revealed he’s keen on a move to Serie A. The Swede, who impressed on loan at Feyenoord last season, has been linked to Lazio and said: “My grandfather was Italian. There is a strong bond, and my family have an apartment in Rome. I’ve always dreamed of playing in Serie A one day.”
22.49 BST Michael Owen may remain unemployed, but he still doesn't fancy dropping to England's second tier.
He tweets: "Not being disrespectful when saying I wouldn't play in The Championship. Always said I wouldn't drop down the leagues like some have done. After playing for Liverpool, Real Madrid, Newcastle, Man Utd and England I don't think I would enjoy that football.
"If a good opportunity doesn't come my way then so be it. At this stage of my career it has to be something that I'm going to enjoy doing. I know I can still bang them in at the top level. I proved that nearly every time I played for Man Utd. At 32, still got a few years in me."
22.36 BST Marca on Real Madrid’s attempts to secure a good deal for Luka Modric: “Madrid doesn't plan to pay more than €35 million, whilst Tottenham began negotiations at €50 million. So the path chosen is to wait for the player himself to put pressure on Tottenham. Los Blancos trust that Luka will insist on leaving the London club, and that his transfer be to Real Madrid. In this tug of war, the club presided over by Florentino Pérez hopes that with time Daniel Levy, the Tottenham director, will become nervous and lower the price.”
22.15 BST France midfielder Moussa Sissoko, 22, doesn’t seem to mind whether he remains at Toulouse. “That’s something my uncle deals with,” he told L’Equipe. “It’s not my concern. It may be that I go, or may be that I stay.” Nice and relaxed.
22.01 BST Spanish newspaper AS suggests that AC Milan will consider taking Kaka back to the San Siro, in addition to a striker to replace Ibra. Mattia Destro, Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko are the names cropping up most regularly at this point, along with Andy Carroll, of course.
21.54 BST RMC Sport in France thinks Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed a contract with PSG and that Milan are going to receive about €70 million from the double deal.
21.47 BST Sky Sports News says Joao Moutinho is eager to move to Spurs and a deal could be tied up in the next week for the Portugal midfielder.
21.38 BST Here’s an odd one. Clemente Mastella, who used to be on the board at Napoli, says he’s had lunch with FIFA agent Ernesto Bronzetti and Napoli are in talks with Real Madrid to sign Kaka on loan. The politician told Radio Gol: “I am happy. Napoli and Real Madrid are negotiating a loan deal to take Kaka to Naples. On Friday I had dinner with Ernesto Bronzetti, who is mediating the talks. Napoli will pay only 40% of the contract.” Hmm.
21.30 BST Sky Italia is reporting that Fabio Borini to Liverpool is a done deal. Roma have reportedly accepted a deal starting at €13 million. More as and when we get it...
21.04 BST Porto's James Rodriguez has been linked with a move away, with Manchester United quite regularly mentioned, but it appears it's not happening. Speaking on his 21st birthday, he said: "Porto are my present. It's a great club. I'm not thinking about anything other than Porto."
20.52 BST Belgium’s Het Nieuwsblad is reporting that Werder Bremen are keen to sign Kevin De Bruyne on loan from Chelsea. The winger has only just arrived at Stamford Bridge after agreeing a move from Racing Genk earlier this year, but it was always expected that he’d be sent out to further his development.
20.40 BST It's probably a little early to start speculating on who AC Milan will target as a replacement for Zlatan, but reader TomTom feels now is as good a time as any.
"A team about to receive 62 million euros should invest that money into a bargain like Van Persie. He's the only reasonable center forward to replace Ibrahimovic with. Tevez is too expensive and will probably want a tree that grows money as part of the personal terms. Van Persie isn't all about the money, apparently."
20.34 BST A tweet from the prolific @barcastuff: "Karel Jansen (agent Afellay): 'Barça don't want to sell him and Ibrahim doesn't want to leave Barça.' [footmercato]"
20.23 BST Leaving that one aside for a moment, Sky Sports News believes QPR are leading the race to sign Junior Hoillett. The striker's out of contract at Blackburn but, as he's under 24, some compensation will be due to Rovers.
19.56 BST The story on Ibra-Silva to PSG is right here.
19.45 BST ...and Silvio Berlusconi has been quoted as confirming that both Ibra and Thiago Silva will leave the San Siro. More to follow...
19.43 BST Well, well. L'Equipe is reporting that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has agreed a move to PSG in principle.

18.24 BST Stoke defender Danny Higginbotham, who spent time on loan at Nottingham Forest last season, is unsure where he'll be playing next season. The 33-year-old told Sky Sports News: "That's not in my hands. The gaffer will decide what he wants to do."

16.47 BST "We have drawn up a target profile and Rafael van der Vaart would be an ideal fit," Hamburg coach Thorsten Fink has told Sport1.de amid speculation his club will make a move for the Tottenham midfielder. Full story

12.30 BST: Wesley Sneijder's agent has dismissed speculation in Russia linking his client with a move from Inter Milan to Anzhi Makhachkala. “There is no truth in those reports - they are just rumours,'' Soren Lerby told Gazzetta dello Sport. “There is nothing between Anzhi and Wesley.”
12.06 BST: Chievo midfielder Michael Bradley should complete a €5 million transfer to Roma by tomorrow, his agent has said. Alberto Faccini told asromanews.it: “I am confident because I have been given assurances. I am convinced that, in 24 hours, all will be resolved.”

Muller's contract in Bavaria runs until 2015 and, although he has been linked with both AC and Inter Milan, he told Bild: “I am a Bayern player through and through, and that should not really change.”
But... “I would not be the kind of person to just sit out my contract if I was not satisfied with my situation in my club.”
But... “I don't feel any transfer intentions at the moment.''
10.01 BST: The Birmingham City manager Lee Clark says the Blues have received no offers for defender Curtis Davies. Davies is reported to be target for former Birmingham boss Chris Hughton, who is now the manager of Norwich City.
09.20 BST: Roma are strong contenders to sign Mattia Destro, who is co-owned by Siena and Genoa on one of those odd-seeming arrangements.
Genoa president Enrico Preziosi says Roma have been the first to make contact over a possible deal for the forward, who is also reported to be interesting Inter Milan and Juventus.
Reports in Italy suggest that a deal could be done with the proceeds from the sale of Roma striker Fabio Borini reinvested in Destro.
09.01 BST - DONE DEAL: Fiorentina have signed Argentinian defender Facundo Roncaglia, who became a free agent after his Boca Juniors contract expired last month. He moves to Tuscany on a three-year deal as the club’s second signing in a week after striker Mounir El Hamdaoui arrived from Ajax.
08.35 BST: It’s a novelty-style sunny morning and its dominant figure, as far as transfer speculation goes, appears to be Luka Modric after Wednesday’s Andre Villas-Boas press conference at Tottenham.
AVB, while admitting that Modric wants to leave, is adamant that the playmaker will only do so for the right price – and that's reported to be in the region of £40 million.
The Sun reports AVB as saying that the “Croatian sensation” (that’s the paper’s description of Modric, not the coach’s) “is a player of major importance for the club, and that’s why he attracts the attention of so many.”
He adds: “It is in the hands of the chairman to accept the right proposition. Chelsea were involved last year, so there is nothing new in the situation. There is interest, and the player raises interest.
“If the player’s ambition is to move, we can respect that. But there are club interests that the chairman will defend, and only when the right offer is made will there be more news.”
In the world beyond White Hart Lane, the Sun reports that Wigan’s Hugo Rodallega has put Everton off with his wage demands – and that means he is going to Fulham instead.
The paper says: “Rodallega’s £70,000-a-week wage demands would have immediately put him at the top of Toffees’ pay scale. Boss [David] Moyes offered him £20,000 less before pulling out of the deal.”
It claims Stoke and Aston Villa were also interested in signing the 27-year-old, but those possibilities also seem to have come to nothing.
In The Mirror, meanwhile, they’re intrigued by the possibility of all-time Liverpool bargain Andy Carroll turning up at Craven Cottage, and suggest there could be some sort of deal involving Clint Dempsey moving the other way.
The US international apparently wants to leave Craven Cottage for a bigger club, and Liverpool are rumoured to be keen to sign him. Do you see the conclusion they’ve drawn there?
The Daily Mail also concentrates on Carroll, suggesting that that he could make a "sensational return” (is there any other type of return?) to Newcastle, from whom Liverpool signed him in that description-defying deal in 2011.
Magpies manager Alan Pardew, who already has a pretty handy strike force, said: “Andy did a terrific job here. I have always supported him, even while he has been at Liverpool, when others weren't.
"I think he got a bit of a raw deal, not by Liverpool but from the media in general. He is going to be a great player.” Like some sort of slighty coy theatrical agent, Pardew then adds: “Where he treads the boards, we will have to see.”
The Star reports that newly-promoted Southampton could make a double swoop on former Championship colleagues Crystal Palace. Forward Wilfried Zaha and defender Nathaniel Clyne are reported to be on their radar, as is Spurs right-back Kyle Naughton, who was on loan at Norwich last season.
