Transfer News Today: Manchester United Set To Unveil £20million Rojo


Forum chatter

Having already signed an English full-back in Ashley Cole, Roma are believed to be interested in Manchester City's transfer-listed right-back Micah Richards.

Deal or no deal? Roma are prepared to offer around £3.5million for Richards, but City are believed to want £5million. This is one to watch but, right now, seems unlikely.

 

Loan watch

Barcelona are set to allow Alex Song to leave on a season-long loan.

Deal or no deal? Song has never established himself in the Barca team and this looks like the sensible option for all parties. Everton, Tottenham and Manchester United are all believed to be interested. Deal – but to who remains the question.

 

Tabloid speculation

Roma defender Mehdi Benatia looks set to join Bayern Munich after his agent held talks with the German champions on Monday.

Deal or no deal? Benatia was a target for Man United but since the injury to Javi Martinez, which will keep him out for around seven months, Guardiola has confirmed he will buy a new defender. Benatia looks the ideal replacement. Deal.

In talks

Leroy Fer is close to a move to QPR, who have agreed a £7million deal for the Norwich midfielder.

Deal or no deal? Fer featured for the Netherlands at the World Cup and would be another solid signing for Harry Redknapp’s side. Deal. 

 

Signed, sealed & (almost) delivered

Manchester United are on the verge of unveiling defender Marcos Rojo as their latest signing.

Deal or no deal? Rojo has announced on Portuguese radio that he will travel to Manchester on Tuesday to complete a medical and other formalities on the deal. And by signing an Argentine, could that persuade Angel di Maria to also make the move to Old Trafford? Deal.
