Pedro set for Manchester switch but to what club? The Barcelona attacker has admitted that although he doesn’t want to leave the Camp Nou, he wants first-team football. United and Louis van Gaal are front-runners though Manchester City are waiting to pounce if they’re unable to secure Kevin de Bruyne’s services from Wolfsburg.

Southampton pick up forgotten Chelsea man in £5m deal: After losing Morgan Schneiderlin to Manchester United in the summer, the Saints are in need of midfield reinforcement. They made an astute signing in Jordy Clasie and have now added 23-year-old ex-Chelsea and Barcelona man Oriel Romeu to their ranks.

Spurs finally rid themselves of major flop Soldado – or so it seems: The striker was seen in Heathrow earlier today and reportedly told a fan that he was heading to Villarreal. It followed a social media post from Erik Lamela in which he wished the Spaniard well on his new journey.


United line up Valencia centre-back: Manchester United are inching ever closer to a deal for Nicolas Otamendi, according to latest reports. With Sergio Ramos likely to sign a new deal with Real Madrid, Louis van Gaal is to turn his attention to the Argentine defender.

 Juve to raid Chelsea for Ramires and Cuadrado? The Italian giants have lost some high-profile players during this transfer window, including Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal. And while their big target is Schalke’s Julian Draxler, they’re also keen on Chelsea’s South American duo.
