The Joshi Gossip


Liverpool interested in Victor Valdes, United still hold hope on Vidal, Arsenal in for cut-price Carvalho and...

It's a move that has been discussed for a few weeks now, but The Sun this morning claim that United have finally entered official talks over the signing of the midfielder from Sporting Lisbon.

The idea is seemingly that United would like to avoid the panic of last summer by ensuring that a deal is tied up before the World Cup begins, with the paper also mentioning the £30million fee that keeps being mooted.

That price does seem an awful lot for a player with just 22 appearances for Sporting, but when Real Madrid are amongst the other clubs reportedly showing interest, we suppose that's what it takes.

It would be fair to say that Jack Rodwell's move to Manchester City hasn't really worked out, and by that we mean it's been woeful on pretty much every count. Rodwell is a young man that has suffered plenty of injuries, but seven league starts in his entire time at the Etihad makes for grim reading.

Rodwell, who turns 23 today, is in desperate need of a move to reignite his career, and the Guardian today claim that Everton will attempt to bring him back to Goodison this summer.

The paper also report that Everton aimed to take Rodwell back in January, but were rebuffed after City failed to sign Fernando from Porto.

A move that makes a great deal of sense for all concerned.

With it looking increasingly likely that Alvaro Morata will be permitted to leave Real Madrid this year in order to seek first-team football, the Daily Star reckon that Manchester United will challenge Arsenal's supposed interest in the forward.

The paper believe that with Javier Hernandez very much on the fringes at Old Trafford, and with Robin van Persie suffering a lack of form, another forward is a priority for David Moyes.

Arsenal came close to signing Morata in January, but now face both stiff competition and a rising price tag in order to complete a deal for the 21 year old.
