Transfer News Today: Zaha seals Man United move



Forum chatter

With Iker Casillas facing a spell on the sidelines with a broken hand, Real Madrid could dip into the transfer market for a replacement. On their radar could be QPR's Julio Cesar, fresh from a recall to the Brazilian national team. Could the Champions League veteran return to football's top table?


Tabloid speculation

Norwich could boost their attacking options with a move for the fabulously named Ricky van Wolfswinkel, who plays for Sporting. The Portuguese side are experiencing financial troubles, so could be persuaded to let go of the promising 23-year-old, who is known for his aeriel ability.


Contact made

Mohamed Diame has caught the eye for his displays for West Ham this season, and has emerged as a surprise transfer target for Tottenham. With Sandro out for the rest of the season, Andre Villas-Boas is believed to be keen on another all-action midfielder, and Diame fits the bill nicely. The Senegal international has a release clause of just £3.5million.


Bid tabled

AC Milan are believed to have stumped up an offer for wilcard Man City striker Mario Balotelli. Roberto Mancini has lost patience with the 22-year-old, making a move back to his native Italy a likely outcome this month. Milan hope to do a deal for around £20million.


Signed, sealed, delivered

Manchester United today put the final touches to the deal that will bring exciting youngster Wilfried Zaha to Old Trafford. The fee is believed to be around £10million up front, but the Palace chairman claims the Eagles could bag up to double that amount. Zaha will see out the remainder of the season in the Championship before linking up with the Red Devils in July.
