RONALDO FLIRTS WITH MAN UNITED
There isn't any talk of Cristiano Ronaldo returning to Manchester United this summer (thank god, we had quite enough of that rumour last year), but the Real Madrid star hasn't ruled out a return to Old Trafford in the future.

"Of course, it was one of my favourite clubs, Manchester, everyone knows that every time when I speak about Real Madrid I should speak about Manchester United, I love it there," Ronaldo told the media on Friday.

"I was 18-years-old, I win everything there. The people treat me like a god there so I appreciate it and in the future nobody knows."

He does like to flutter his eyelashes.


BRONDBY AND BARCA BATTLE FOR AGGER
This has to be the most peculiar transfer head-to-head we've ever heard as Barcelona and Brondby reportedly duke it out for Daniel Agger.

The Dane has made noises about looking to leave Liverpool after Dejan Lovren's arrival for £20m further increased the competition in defence.

'The 29-year-old's future is unclear after Lovren's £20million signing and Brondby hope they can lure the central defender back to the club he grew up at, with their major shareholder saying they will do 'everything in our power' to sign him,' report the Daily Mail.

'Barcelona have been continually linked with Agger but having splashed out on French defender Jeremy Mathieu last week a deal would have to be right for them to proceed.'


SPURS CHASE MUSACCHIO
They've just signed Eric Dier from Sporting Lisbon, but Spurs are eager to add another defender to their squad, according to the Daily Mirror.

'Tottenham are in talks with Mateo Musacchio over a move to White Hart Lane,' report the Mirror.

'The Argentine defender is valued at £21million by his club Villarreal, but Mauricio Pochettino has made him a top priority as he looks to tinker with the Spurs backline.'

It's thought Spurs are prepared to pay around £16m for Musacchio, but Villarreal are holding out for a big fee because of a 35% sell-on clause owed to River Plate.
