John Terry may be headed east for the remainder of his career - Middle East that is. A report in the Daily Mirror claims there are at least three clubs in the United Arab Emirates which are keen to secure the former England skipper's services this summer. Sven Goran ­Eriksson's Al Nasr, UAE Pro-League champions Al-Ain and Al Jazira are all ready, willing and able to sign Terry, according to a source.

Not heading quite so far in the same direction is Samir Nasri, who is once again linked with Paris Saint-Germain in The Sun. The attacking midfielder has endured a disappointing campaign with Manchester City, leading to public criticism from manager Roberto Mancini in recent weeks. It is said that PSG's mega-rich owners have contacting his father Abdelhamid in order to commence negotiations over a June switch.

Not one to dwell on the past - or the present, it seems - Mancini has already lined up the answer to City's attacking woes. The Mirror claims Mancini is preparing a record-breaking £52 million bid for Atletico Madrid star Radamel Falcao. Such an offer would sink Real Madrid's hopes of luring the prolific Colombian across the Spanish capital.

Elsewhere in Manchester, United are pushing to offload unwanted midfielder Anderson. The 24-year-old has fallen right down Sir Alex Ferguson's pecking order in the middle third, and the United boss has seen enough to part ways with the Brazilian come season's end, the Mirror reports. A return to Portugal is said to be in the offing.

Off the pitch, speculation is heating up David Moyes is set to depart Everton and Goodison Park in the coming months. The Scot's contract will expire soon, with Bundesliga outfit Schalke reportedly interested. Should Moyes leave in the summer, the Mirror says Everton are eyeing Wigan boss Roberto Martinez as his potential replacement.
