Etienne Capoue: Linked with a move from Toulouse to Cardiff

Sadran is quoted as telling L'Equipe that other clubs will have to match the bid from Cardiff to stand any chance of winning the race for his signature.

Midfielder Capoue has been linked with a move to English football for some time and Queens Park Rangers are rumoured to have had an offer for him rejected in January.

Sadran recently admitted that he would be prepared to let the 25-year-old leave for the right price, and reports in France now claim a transfer fee has been agreed worth €10million plus add-ons.

It is also reported that Capoue is hesitating over his future as he expected a contract with one of Europe's top sides.

"Now the clubs interested in Etienne have to know we will not accept any offer inferior to the one from Cardiff," Sadran said in L'Equipe.

Cardiff have bolstered their ranks this summer with the record signing of striker Andreas Cornelius, but he is so far the only new arrival and manager Malky Mackay has urged fans to remain patient.

The Bluebirds are gearing up for the new Premier League campaign after winning the Championship and kick off the season away to West Ham United.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
