Transfer News Today: Man Utd Agree Terms For Fifth Summer Signing

Serg-ing Ahead

Manchester United have reportedly agreed to make goalkeeper Sergio Romero their fifth signing of the summer, with the Argentina international joining on a free transfer.

A De Gea replacement? Probably more like a Victor Valdes replacement. The Argentina stopper played under Louis van Gaal at AZ Alkmaar, and would add to growing list of South Americans at United.

Really Ronaldo?

The rumour linking Cristiano Ronaldo with a return to Old Trafford refuses to go away, with an apparent (and predictable) rift with Rafael Benitez edging him closer to the Real Madrid exit.

We’ve been here before. We have. Ronaldo loves the limelight, and a move away from Madrid doesn’t look like happening any time soon, regardless of United’s determination to make it happen.

If you really think it might happen, he’s 7.00 to make the move


 Saido To Spurs

Tottenham have decided they want to unite West Brom’s Saido Berahino with his England Under-21 strike partner Harry Kane, and are ready to bid £15m for him.

Is that enough? Probably not. Berahino is young and English so you can add another £10m onto that.

He’s 3.00 to be a Spurs player by the end of the window

Newcastle don’t feel that Charlie Austin is worth £15m, and have pulled out of a deal to sign him from QPR.

Are they right? Well they’ve just signed the Serbian Aleksandar Mitrovic for a similar price, so they obviously had the money to spend. Where Austin will go remains a mystery.

Bet on his next club here




Armed with their Christian Benteke cash, Aston Villa are ready to throw it at Tottenham in exchange for their forward Emmanuel Adebayor, who Spurs are more than willing to let go.

Tim Sherwood likes him. He does, but whether or not he could coax some performances out of him following his personal troubles remains to be seen.
