Rumour Roundup: June 19th, 2013

So finally we've seen some transfers push through this week, some of which have been both interesting and perplexing. Let's jump into it.

Done Deals:
Lokomotiv midfielder Denis Glushakov has crossed town and joined rivals Spartak for an undisclosed fee. An article confirming the transfer was posted on Spartak's website before being removed and then reposted with no official explanation.

Versatile Ukrainian defender Taras Mykhalyk has joined Lokomotiv Moscow on a free transfer after his contract at Dynamo Kiev expired, signing a 3 year contract. The 29-year-old joined Dynamo in 2013 and made 124 league appearances in his time there.

Anzhi striker Serder Serderov has joined newly promoted Ural Yekaterinburg on loan until the end of the 2013-14 season. Serderov has made just 4 appearances for Anzhi since joining from CSKA Moscow last summer, scoring no goals.

Looking Likely:
Denis Cheryshev looks set to leave Real Madrid as he has continued to be linked with moves away from the club. In addition to reported interest from Manchester United, Spartak Moscow, Borussia Dortmund and Sevilla, he has been linked to a part-swap deal for Malaga's Isco.

Igor Denisov has been linked with a move to Anzhi by former Zenit player Sergei Vedeneev. Vedeneev stated that "Zenit have already bought his replacement in Tymoschuk", whilst also claiming that Mikhail Kerzhakov could make a move to the Makhachkala club.

Zenit midfielder Roman Shirokov has stated that he has a "deep down desire to play in a European club" but that he has "not received any concrete offer". Both Monaco and Liverpool have been linked with the central midfielder in recent weeks.

Balazs Dzsudzsak's agent has claimed that Liverpool and Internazionale have an interest in his client and have made enquiries. Dzsudzsak joined Dinamo Moscow in January 2012 and made 27 appearances last season, scoring 5 goals and making 10 assists

Low Chance:
Anzhi has distanced itself from moves for Fredy Guarin, Roberto Soldado and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, stating that "these assumptions are without substance". 

Zenit central midfielder Axel Witsel has claimed that he is "not thinking about leaving Zenit" despite interest from Paris Saint-Germain. Witsel has struggled for form since joining Zenit last summer for €40 million, but is only 24 and has managed to nail down a first team spot in St. Petersburg.
