DO JUAN, UNITED
Manchester United have tabled a £30million offer for Fiorentina winger Juan Cuadrado to beat off Arsenal and Liverpool, so say the Daily Express.

United's bid for the Colombian is significantly higher than that of their Premier League rivals but the figure still falls some way short of Fiorentina's valuation, according to the paper.

The Serie A club are hoping to net a fee closer to £40million by dragging Barcelona and Bayern into a bidding war. Fiorentina have already drawn up a list of possible replacements, which includes Giovanni dos Santos, Mathieu Valbuena and Bryan Ruiz.


SANCHEZ SPANNER IN SUAREZ DEAL
Alexis Sanchez is said to prefer to join Arsenal rather than Liverpool.

Barcelona have been hoping to use the Chilean as £30million makeweight in any deal with Liverpool for Luis Suarez. But, according to the Daily Mail, Sanchez favours a move to north London with the Gunners instead.

Mannchester United and Juventus are also said to be interested in Sanchez. And who wouldn't be?


PREM PAIR IN QUEUE FOR KEEPER
Liverpool and Arsenal have both made approaches to Levante for goalkeeper Karlor Navas.

The Costa Rica keeper is in demand after a fine season in La Liga and some impressive displays at the World Cup.

Navas is entering the final year of his contract with Levante meaning his buy-out clause is only £8million. The 27-year-old currently earns less than £4,000-a-week. But the two Premier League giants are not alone in looking to make the keeper a better offer.

Porto had a £2.4million bid rejected last week, while Atletico Madrid have also had a cash-plus-player offer rebuffed. Real Madrid are also said to be extremely interested, as are Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen.

I think this is just a rumor. It would be foolish to play 30-40 mil on a flavor of WC player. Too often they don't pan out.

I would rather pay the 40 mil for Di Maria who is a fantastic, badly underrated at Madrid (and hence wants out) and would be a star on our wings.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
