UNITED OPEN VIDAL TALKS
Whilst Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw may well prove to be good signings both, the arrival of Arturo Vidal at Old Trafford would be the statement of intent to announce that Manchester United are back, baby.

The Gazzetta dello Sport believe that United officials have already begun discussions with Vidal's agent in order to discuss personal terms ahead of the club agreeing a fee with Juventus. There seems to be an awful lot of this about now, so apparently 'tapping up' isn't a thing anymore. Which is nice.

Clearly there is a heck of a long way left until a deal can be considered close, but it does appear that United are finally serious in their attempts to rebuild a particularly downtrodden central midfield.


CITY TO CHASE POGBA IF TOURE LEAVES
Well hello there L'Equipe, and a good afternoon to you. Someone's going a little ballsy with their transfer gossip aren't they?

The French paper claim that with Yaya Toure wanting out of Manchester City due to significant cake-related c**k-ups, City may look to Paul Pogba as a replacement for the Ivorian.

Clearly it's a slightly fanciful story, with suggestions that Toure will join Paris St Germain in this window, leaving City enough time to tempt Pogba back to Manchester, paying a £60million fee in the process. Maybe FFP doesn't exist either.

Still, another punishment from UEFA would surely be made worthwhile be the look on the faces of United fans if City has their free transfer running the midfield?


MEDEL OFF TO INTER
From the sunny climes of Italy and France to the wonderful scenery of South Wales, now, and news that Gary Medel's sojourn at Cardiff looks to be over after less than a year.

It always seemed unlikely that Medel would be content to go from Brazil to Championship pre-season training without passing Go and, after reported interest from Inter, it appears that the Italian club will make a formal offer for the Chilean's services.

WalesOnline today claim that a deal will be agreed for Medel to move to Milan on an initial loan basis, with an option to buy in 12 months' time.

Having been bought for £11million, we can't quite work out why Cardiff wouldn't be looking to get a fee for the player right now.

Vidal would be a welcome addition, all these players coming in must surely mean others are on the way out.
