City to make £40m move for Manuel Neuer to replace Hart, Arsenal in for Coleman, Berba could leave Fulham...
CITY EYE GENTLEMAN WILLY
Manchester City are lining up a move for Malaga keeper Willy Caballero, according to the Metro.
The 32-year-old was Manuel Pellegrini's No 1 at Malaga last season and there were reports in the summer that the manager wanted to take the Argentine to Manchester.
A move failed to transpire because Caballero wanted first-team football, but it's thought that Pellegrini has renewed his interest to increase the competition for the error-prone Joe Hart.
"I spoke to Pellegrini before he left Malaga," said Caballero last month. "I know of his intention to take me with him but I was unsure whether he would stick with the goalkeepers he had or play me."
The Metro don't put a price on a potential move, but City should be able to convince hard-up Malaga to sell the shot-stopper.
MAN UNITED SCOUT CABELLA
The Metro also claim that Manchester United are tracking Montpellier playmaker Remy Cabella ahead of a move in January.
The 23-year-old was in sparkling form last season, claiming seven goals and eight assists in 31 Ligue 1 appearances, and has already notched five strikes in the current campaign.
'Arsenal and Inter Milan have previously linked with the move, but United have now emerged as the front runners for his signature,' report the Metro.
'Cabella fits the bill - and Moyes has now instructed United scouts to draw up an in depth reports on the player with a £15million bid in the pipeline.
'Montpellier are aware of the growing interest in Cabella, but their president Louis Nicollin warned in the summer that it would take a bid of 'at least £100million' to convince them to sell.'
FERNANDO ALSO ON UNITED'S LIST
The next midfielder to be linked with United is Porto's holding man Fernando.
The 26-year-old, nicknamed the 'octopus', almost joined Everton on deadline day before the Toffees pushed through a move for James McCarthy.
According to reports, Fernando's contract is set to expire at the end of the season 'and Portuguese newspaper A Bola claims Porto will sell him in January if they fail to make the Champions League knockout stages, rather than risk losing him for nothing next summer,' report the Mirror.
'Champions United, who bought only Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini in the summer window, and Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan are being linked with what could be a cut-price swoop for the Brazilian by the media in Portugal.'
NEWCASTLE FAVOURITES FOR ZAHA
The Daily Star claim Newcastle are leading the race to sign Wilfried Zaha on loan from Manchester United in January.
The winger hasn't made a single appearance in the Premier League this season and United are planning to send him out until the end of the campaign to gain top-flight experience.
'Stoke, Southampton and Fulham were all hopeful of doing a deal to land the talented winger but Zaha is said to prefer a chance of first-team football on Tyneside,' claim the Star.
'A source said: "The prospect of playing at Newcastle is the preferred one at present but it depends on United allowing a loan move to happen."'
