Real 'convinced' they'll get Suarez, Gundogan available for £25million, Herrara staying put and so is Morata...
BARCELONA EYE JANUZAJ
According to The Daily Mail, Barcelona are ready to swoop for Adnan Januzaj if he rejects a new contract at Manchester United.
The 18-year-old made headlines with his match-winning performance against Sunderland on Saturday, and United are now desperate to tie him to a new contract with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.
'But Barca have tracked the teenager's progress since before he joined United from Anderlecht in 2011. They are ever more confident that Januzaj will move to the Nou Camp when his deal runs out in eight months,' report the Mail.
'Though the Belgian says he is happy at United, it is said he has felt unappreciated at times. Contract talks stalled after Sir Alex Ferguson decided to retire in May and have resumed only recently.
'Agent Dirk de Vriese warned last week: "I'm not going to say which teams are interested in him, but I can tell you that there is interest from several European clubs."'
HAMMERS TO OFFER MORRISON NEW CONTRACT
Ravel Morrison is set to be awarded a new contract at West Ham after Sam Allardyce hailed him as a 'genius'.
The 20-year-old has enjoyed an impressive start to the season, scoring a brilliant goal against Spurs on Sunday, and now the Hammers are planning to sort out his long-term future.
'The Hammers will try to remove a £19million clause installed by the player himself after his wonder-goal at Spurs on Sunday sent his value rocketing,' reports The Daily Mirror.
'He has 18 months on his current contract which could see his fee rise to £2million with add-ons.
'The Hammers are ready to offer Morrison a far higher basic wage in return for removing the release clause.'
SPURS CHASE PIRLO
Oh boy, we want this to happen. Not only because Andrea Pirlo is a beautiful man and a beautiful footballer, but to see how Andre Villas-Boas plans to juggle 347 central midfielders in the Spurs squad.
The Daily Mail claimed in September that Pirlo could be set to leave Juventus after talks over a new contract stalled, and they now report that Spurs have jumped to the front of the queue.
'The north London club appear to have followed up their initial interest and begun exploring the possibility of landing him on a free transfer at the end of the season, following a claim by Vialli on Sky Italia on Sunday,' report the Mail.
'A studio guest for Juve's 3-2 win over AC Milan, Vialli was quizzed about the 34-year old's contract stand-off with the Serie A champions, and said: "I heard the rumours from London that there are contacts between Pirlo and Tottenham for next season."'
We're moist with excitement.
DERBY PREPARED FOR HUGHES EXIT
According to The Daily Express, Derby playmaker Will Hughes will be allowed to leave Pride Park in January following interest from Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United.
'A host of the Premier League's top sides seem to be biding their time in signing the 18-year-old, who scored in a 3-1 victory over Leeds United on Saturday, but it is expected that thorough scouting will turn into bids in the January window,' claim the Express.
Hughes was tipped for a £10million move to Liverpool in the summer and after several impressive displays at the start of the new season it seems he could soon be on his way from Derby.

@redbornandbred> So conviniently ignore Rafael? What about Cleverly and Welbeck, who both are part of the first team. What about Jones and Smalling. Yes they were bought, but as somewhat unproven youngsters (more true of Smalling than Jones) who got their chance and are first team players. You do know that none of the other title winning teams have given any unproven youth a chance, right? Mourinho even refused to consider playing Lukaku.- Synergy
Everyone seems to harp on Pogba. Yeah it was a shame SAF didn't give him a fair crack. But SAF was trying to win and was winning titles and doing so makes some tough decisions. Morrison was a troubled kid and had to leave Manchester for his own good (get away from his friend circle).
As for Januzaj. He is being given his chance and being offered a contract. Nothing more united can do, but hope he decides United is the place for him.
