Cape Town - The football season is barely over and already clubs are looking to add to their squads for next season's campaign.

Manchester City have talked about creating a "period of dominance", Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard says the Reds "will win" the Premier League title in the next few seasons, while Manchester United are already trying to reshape their squad. 

Transfer gossip

According to BBC Sport, Manchester United have made a bid £27m for Southampton's 18-year-old left-back Luke Shaw, who is expected to be included in Roy Hodgson's England World Cup squad on Monday.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew wants to sign midfielder Fabian Delph, 24, and striker Andreas Weimann, 22, from Aston Villa in a double deal that could cost the Magpies £15m.

Patrice Evra, 32, could follow fellow defender Nemanja Vidic to Inter Milan from Manchester United this summer.

Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United are eyeing 34-year-old Barcelona playmaker Xavi, despite the Spain international still having two years left on his contract.

Other gossip

Manchester United defender Phil Jones, 22, has two weeks to prove to Roy Hodgson he will have recovered from his shoulder injury in time for the World Cup, with Everton's John Stones, 19, ready to replace him.

Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole, 33, rejected a chance to be placed upon Roy Hodgson's list of seven standby players for the World Cup after being left out of England's squad.

Former Cardiff manager Malky Mackay and ex-Watford boss Gianfranco Zola are in the frame as relegated Norwich City plan to name a new manager within a week.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon is also high on Norwich's list to replace interim manager Neil Adams this summer, as the Canaries look to earn an instant return to the Premier League after relegation.

Tottenham are considering making an approach for Napoli's former Liverpool and Chelsea boss Rafael Benitez as they step up their hunt for a new manager. Chairman Daniel Levy is expected to formally announce the departure of Tim Sherwood in the coming days.

Paris St-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic gave his acceptance speech in French after winning the Ligue 1 player of the year award for the second year in a row. Though the Swede is fluent in five languages, his team-mates' laughter showed French is not yet one of them.
