On Tuesday Spanish newspaper AS said Javier Manquillo was a step away from Liverpool and on Wednesday Marca claim that the transfer will be announced within 'a matter of hours'. That can often be a saying in Spain and not literal, but it means that they think the deal is very close and is likely to be completed soon.
El Confidencial won't let the Iker Casillas to Arsenal rumour go. The Spanish outlet have good ties to Real Madrid and on occasion it looks like they're acting as the club's mouthpiece. For the Casillas rumours to be untrue then there would have to be a greater reason for them than click-bait, they have never appeared to be that kind of outlet.
The Vidal stories are continuing apace in Italy and specifically with Turin newspaper Tuttosport. It's claimed on Tuesday that Manchester United have come back in with a second offer having had their first one refused. Tuttosport say that an original proposal which would have seen Juventus receive €40m plus a further €3m in bonuses was rejected immediately by Juventus chief Beppe Marotta.
Javier Manquillo had been wanted by Arsenal according to reports in Spain. The Premier league club had gone about things the right way and contacted his current club Atletico Madrid but were told that the young Spanish fullback wasn't going anywhere.
Yesterday we did a piece on the Juan Cuadrado rumours to Manchester United and said that the story simply wouldn't go away. It's not done on Tuesday and spanish newspaper Sport are back with the Manchester United claims.
Chelsea are very close to completing yet another big summer deal if reports in Spain on Monday are correct. The Premier League club have done a lot of business with Atletico Madrid this transfer window and taken some of the club's best players.
Sporting Lisbon wanted William Carvalho to be one of the stars of the World Cup in Brazil and for that to lead to a queue of clubs ready to pay his buyout clause of €45m. That didn't happen, Carvalho wasn't a stand-out star in a poor Portuguese team, the lofty €45m was looking a more inflated figure than ever.
The stories about Manchester United and Juan Cuadrado just won't be killed off. Along with James Rodriguez, Cuadrado excelled for Colombia at the World Cup and it inevitably threw his name into the rumour mill. Barcelona have been linked repeatedly and so have Bayern Munich but the inclusion of Manchester United appeared to come from nowhere.
Manchester United and Juventus will announce their first transfer deal of the summer on Monday, according to Gazzetta dello Sport. That will be for Patrice Evra but the situation of Arturo Vidal looms large. Gazzetta say a financial offer to Vidal from Manchester United (of around €6m a year, they don't confirm this has actually been made) would likely be unmatchable by Juventus and therefore the club would sit down for sale talks.
