Football and rumours go hand in hand and we've got you covered with all the whispers swirling around this week in Australia


Franck Ribery to the A-League?


Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery is reportedly one of six big-name targets the A-League is chasing for next season.

The rumour comes from A-League France, who claim reliable sources have told them Ribery is one of several potential marquees being looked at to lure to Australia.

The French flyer is out of contract at the end of the season and the Bundelisga club haven't yet offered the 35-year-old a contract extension.

Ribery has been somewhat coy on his future with China and Qatar two destinations linked to him over the past few months.

While any move to the A-League would seem unlikely, the fact such a big name may be being looked at suggests another massive marquee could be just around the corner.


Daniel De Silva on the move


As first reported by The Covert Agent, Central Coast Mariners midfielder Daniel De Silva is on the lookout for a new side next season. 

Speaking to Goal during the week, the 21-year-old said he's assessing his options and confirmed he has spoken with incoming Mariners coach Mike Mulvey.

Despite that dialogue however, The Courier Mail has revealed Brisbane Roar coach John Aloisi has had dinner with De Silva as the club looks to secure the talented Aussie's services.

De Silva scored three goals across 21 appearances this past season after returning to the A-League from a stint with Dutch side Roda JC. 


Lachlan Wales Melbourne City bound


Another talented young Mariner appears to be on the move with Lachlan Wales set to join Melbourne City next season.

The Covert Agent reports that the 20-year-old will link up with Warren Joyce's side next season after turning the eye in a breakout season on the Central Coast.

City certainly have room for Wales after they released five players on Thursday with three of them being picked up Western Sydney Wanderers.

After themselves letting seven players go at the end of the season, the Mariners currently only have 14 contracted players ensuring incoming coach Mike Mulvey has plenty of work to do.
