Monday Transfer Gossip

First off, Barcelona and AC Milan could be involved in the biggest swap deal the sport has ever seen. Marca (Spanish link) report that Club President's Joan Laporta (Barca) and Silvio Berlusconi (AC) have been in talks regarding a possible trade of Ronaldinho for Kaka. It is thought that Berlusconi is the aggressor, but that Laporta is loathe to part with Ronaldinho, due to his cult status with the Barcelona fans.

The News of the World is linking Tottenham Hotspur with a £10.5million move for Juan Riquelme. Considering his previous rejections of other European sides it seems unlikely he would move to Spurs, but they now seem to be battling it out with Atletico Madrid for his signature.

Sunderland want to bring back Julio Arca to the Stadium of Light. The Daily Mail reports that they have made a £5million offer for the Middlesbrough full back.

Finally, The Mail also reports that Derby are set to complete a £2million move for Southampton's Colombian midfielder Jhon Viafara.
