Football transfer rumours: Robin van Persie to Stoke City or Rangers?

Today’s rumours are headspunThe Mill can only imagine what lies in store over the next 34 days. Awaking to the news that Paul Pogba is likely to join Manchester United by the weekend, the natural response was one of relief: does this ... really ... mean it’s ... all over? The second was one of exhilaration: given the common knowledge that this deal is going to stretch right out until 31 August and keep us all in 7am starts, how exactly are they going to write the next bit? What twists lie in store? Who will gatecrash the wedding?Not Chelsea, much as Antonio Conte might welcome a reunion...

FENERBAHCE have made it clear they have no intention of letting Robin van Persie head back to the Premier League for Stoke City or anyone else. Stoke this week became the latest English top flight side to be linked to the former Manchester United and Arsenal striker, aged 32. Middlesbrough, West Ham and Crystal Palace were also reported to be in the frame and odds that he would move to the bet365 Stadium tumbled from 12/1 to 4/1.

Stoke City: Is 'target' Robin van Persie the modern day bogey...

ROBIN van Persie made a habit of scoring against Stoke City. We make it 11 in all, from a 2-1 FA Cup Arsenal win at Highbury in January 2005 to Stoke's 2-1 win over Manchester United at the Britannia Stadium in February 2014. The forward is 32 now and we had been happy that he been out of sight and out of mind for the past 12 months, plying his trade with Fenerbahce in Turkey. And now his name has cropped up again, it is to link with a move to his old foes – as well as Middlesbrough,...

The 26-year-old forward's long-term future remains in the balance due to a contract set to run out in 2017.

Stoke City transfer gossip: Odds tumble as Robin van Persie...

NOT many players – if any – in the modern era have scored more goals against Stoke City than Robin van Persie. So it has been a welcome break for the former Manchester United and Arsenal striker to spend a couple of seasons outside the Premier League and away from sight in Turkey. But now it seems the Netherlands front man, aged 32, is on his way back to these shores. READ MORE: Sorry Robin van Persie, but you don't hold record against Stoke City He has been linked with a...

MARK Hughes says Stoke City will not take any risks with Ryan Shawcross's back – but insists there is nothing to be concerned about over his long-term fitness. Shawcross sat out of Stoke's opening pre-season game at Burton Albion after tweaking his back when he fell awkwardly in training. The 28-year-old is expected to be fit for the second game, at Preston on Saturday, and Hughes does not want fans to start panicking about the captain. Shawcross needed back surgery this time last...

THERE has never been an exact science for the perfect pre-season. But no matter how he goes about it, priority number one for Mark Hughes this summer is to get and keep his players fit and ready for a full campaign. There can be no getting away from the fact that the huge number of injuries Stoke City suffered last season had an affect on the team. They need everyone firing in the squad because any success will be achieved collectively. There are a couple of key men in particular of...
