We’re gearing up for what could well be the busiest few days of transfer activity in modern memory – the signing of Angel Di Maria could yet merely be the first of many ins and outs. Today, it’s the latter dominating the headlines.
Sky Sports yesterday broke the news that Tom Cleverley is set to move to Aston Villa after an £8m bid was made and accepted. The Telegraph report on the story today but seem non-committal on the status of the bid at present.
Danny Welbeck’s name continues to be linked to the exit door. United seem hesitant to let him go to Arsenal and the Daily Star link him with a move to Spurs.
Arturo Vidal – he of a thousand headlines – created another after reportedly saying he will not leave Juventus this summer.
Record breaking Norwegian star Martin Odegaard has been linked with a move to United. The 15 year old recently made his international debut. He’s a Liverpool fan playing for Stromsgodset. It might not excite anyone but a Liverpool supporting Norwegian? Last time it didn’t turn out so bad.
Away from the transfers, Angel Di Maria’s father has reportedly ‘blasted’ Real Madrid.
