May 22 (Bloomberg) -- The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers, with clickable links to the Web.

Roman to Splash Out?

Having won the Champions League, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is planning a spending spree as he looks to bring in Lille forward Eden Hazard, Porto striker Hulk and Atletico Madrid’s Radamel Falcao, the Daily Mirror said.

The Blues, who finished sixth in the Premier League, will allow Didier Drogba, Salomon Kalou and Jose Bosingwa to leave, the newspaper added.

Newcastle’s Cheick Tiote and Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric are also possible targets, the Mirror said.

Juve Out of Robin Race

Juventus no longer wants to sign Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, the Daily Mail reported.

Juve’s decision leaves Manchester City as the only club that’s shown “a concrete interest” in the 28-year-old, the newspaper said. Juventus has now turned its attention to Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko, Gonzalo Higuain of Real Madrid, and Napoli’s Edinson Cavani.

Van Persie told Arsenal he needs more time to take a decision about his future, the paper added.

Silva Moving?

Real Madrid wants to sign Manchester City’s David Silva, the Daily Star reported. Real manager Jose Mourinho wants the Spanish forward to replace Kaka. Silva cost 24 million pounds ($38 million).

Zabaleta for Barca?

Barcelona may bid as much as 10 million pounds for Manchester City full-back Pablo Zabaleta, the Sun reported. He could replace Dani Alves, who may be bought by Paris Saint-Germain.
