Juan Cuadrado nears Manchester United move as agent flies to England to finalise deal. Juan Cuadrado is nearing a move to Manchester United with his agent due to fly to England to finalise a deal, according to reports. Spanish newspaper Marca are reporting the move, which is believed to be in the region of £36m, will go through in the coming days, with Cuadrado said to have given the go-ahead. Cuadrado will become Louis Van Gaal’s third signing of the summer, following the arrivals of Luke Shaw from Southampton and Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao. Fiorentina president Andrea della Valle yesterday stated the club would be willing to accept a ‘big offer’ for the Colombian, after acknowledging they would struggle to keep hold of him amid growing interest from Old Trafford. -AB
Man Utd Transfer News: £125m splurge on Angel Di Maria, Arturo Vidal AND Mehdi Benatia LOUIS Van Gaal is hoping he can pull off a terrific triple swoop as Manchester United look to sign Juventus' Arturo Vidal, Real Madrid's Angel Di Maria and Roma's Mehdi Benatia. The Dutchman is determined to develop his newly-inherited squad after capturing Southampton's Luke Shaw and Athletic Bilbao's Ander Herrera in big-money moves, and Vidal's protracted switch is picking up pace after it emerged that Old Trafford outcast Javier Hernandez is ready to join the Serie A champions. Reports in Italy claim that the Turin giants are keen to add the Mexican to their ranks, smoothing the path for United to secure Vidal's highly coveted signature. However, the Red Devils are also planning to pair Vidal with Di Maria in midfield next season, and Van Gaal has launched a fresh £55million bid for the Argentina international's services after Paris St-Germain dropped out of the race. Man Utd have made a £55million bid for Angel ...
Manchester United's record signing Juan Mata has revealed new manager Louis Van Gaal has told his players they must communicate in English. Mata has already struck up a bond with fellow countryman Ander Herrera, who joined from Athletic Bilbao earlier in the summer. However, on the pitch, speaking in Spanish has been ruled out. "We speak in English," he said. "The manager says we have to speak in English." It is not the only change Van Gaal has made since his arrival at United earlier this month. The Netherlands World Cup coach has also decided his team is going to play with wing-backs during the coming campaign. It worked to positive effect during the World Cup, when Van Gaal guided his team to third spot. And at Old Trafford, the aim is to get the most from his key attacking trio of Mata, Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie, by placing the responsibility for defending in wide positions to his two wing-backs. Mata added: "The truth is we are trying to play with a new system. I don't know how much time it t ...

Ander Herrera deceived us by signing for Manchester United, claims Athletic Bilbao president
Manchester United's signing of midfielder Ander Herrera could be the catalyst for Louis Van Gaal's change in style Manchester United's £29million acquisition of Spanish midfielder Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao could prove priceless if the 24-year-old can help transform the fortunes of the Red Devils midfield, writes Adam Bate. Oscar de Marcos looked offside, but the real story was the pass. Picking the ball up between the Manchester United lines, Ander Herrera scooped up a delicious lofted pass to bypass the defence. It was typical of the imagination shown by Athletic Bilbao in their 3-2 win over United that day in March 2012. “There’s no doubt Bilbao were the better side,” said Sir Alex Ferguson of Marcelo Bielsa’s team. “They were very aggressive in their attacking and pressing.” Ferguson was understating. The reality was even more damning. Kevin McCarra wrote in The Guardian that United “defended in a manner that looked increasing preposterous as Athletic performed with vigour and f ...
Manchester United chief Ed Woodward says the club is delighted with their swoop for Ander Herrera. Herrera arrived last week from Athletic Bilbao. “We’ve tracked him for nearly three years. "He comes from a footballing family, his father was a top player and a sporting director, he speaks perfect English,” Woodward told the Manchester Evening News. = Ander Herrera says he made the move to Manchester United thanks to his former Athletic Bilbao coach Marcelo Bielsa. The midfielder arrived last week from Bilbao. "My best position is number eight,” said Herrera to the Manchester Evening News. “With Bielsa I played six, like Sergio Busquets at Barca, eight like Iniesta and Xavi, and as a 10. Bielsa said I could become one of the best players in that position.” His versatility appeals to United, but he has to thank Bielsa for making him the player he is. “He’s the most original, different, singular, person that I’ve ever met,” says Herrera. “He’s got an amazing mind. He has an incredible ...

Herrera latest: €36m done deal, having medical, announcement imminent Last night, reports surfaced from Cadena Ser in Spain that Manchester United were going to sign Ander Herrera for €36m from Athletic Bilbao. Those reports were swiftly picked up by multiple news outlets in Spain and today, the British press have followed up with their own reports. The BBC, Telegraph, Independent, Sky Sports and Daily Mail have all reported in unison that Herrera will join United and the Daily Mail has gone a step further to suggest Herrera is already undergoing a medical. Given that he is not away on international duty, it is very plausible he is already undergoing a medical and with his release clause set to increase on 1 July, United are obviously keen to avoid a repeat of the Marouane Fellaini scenario where we paid above his release clause soon after it expired. Herrera’s announcement is expected by the end of the week and it would certainly be a fantastic first signing by Louis Van Gaal, albeit a year late. L ...

That valuation remains the sticking point and, to complicate matters, the clause is due to rise again on July 1 to £37m.

Manchester United are clear favourites to sign Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera this January. (Skybet)
Manchester United face more frustration in their pursuit of Athletic Bilbao midfielder Ander Herrera. Herrera was priced out of a move to United in August and the midfielder is back on the agenda of the English giants. United chief scout Robbie Cooke watched Herrera last week against Real Sociedad and AS says two more United reps saw the youngster produce his best performance of the season against Getafe on the weekend. However, Bilbao are under no pressure to sell and for his part, Herrera is no longer attracted by a move to Old Trafford.
Manchester United reviving Ander Herrera deal and send rep to Bilbao-- Manchester United scouts are so prominent in the media these days that it's a wonder the club hasn't sourced a sponsor for them yet. Reports of various people watching games have increased hugely over the last couple of weeks and moved into mainstream reporting. Even David Moyes has been at it, having been seen watching Juventus in Italy on Sunday. Phil Neville was in Spain but he wasn't the only one. Manchester United's Robbie Cooke was watching Athletic Bilbao destroy Almeria 6-1. He got to see probably Ander Herrera's best performance of the season and Spanish newspaper AS report on Monday that Manchester United have revived their interest in the player, but perhaps it never went away. The midfielder's buyout clause increases to €40m at the end of June and is currently €36m, the Bilbao club have consistently refused to sell him for less. Herrera himself has come out and said repeatedly that he's happy to stay in Bilbao, and AS r ...
According to Daily Mail: - David Moyes will be given £200m over the next 18 months to rebuild the Manchester United squad. - Moyes is targeting Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus, Ander Herrera of Athletic Bilbao, Cesc Fabregas, Edinson Cavani, Radamel Falco, Luke Shaw, Ilkay Gundogan and Steven Defour. - Daniel Sturridge could be back in action for Liverpool at Stoke this weekend after nine games out with injury. - Fiorentina are interested in Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic.
Manchester United have called a meeting of their European scouts this week at Carrington. Around 16 staff are due in Manchester to deliver their reports on potential targets as manager David Moyes goes over the standard required. Moyes wants five or six players in the summer and still remains hopeful of signing one or two this window. United have a poor track record in recruiting world-class players over recent seasons with Robin Van Persie their only one of note since Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo. Moyes also recognises the dearth of young talent, apart from Adnan Januzaj. He is wary of recruiting any players that do not move United on significantly and is being assiduous in his selection of the right candidates. Despite proclamations to the contrary, he has already ruled out bids for Atletico Madrid’s Koke, Cruzeiro’s Everton Ribeiro and Paris Saint-Germain pair Blaise Matuidi and Marco Verratti. However, he remains interested in Ander Herrera of Athletic Bilbao and scouts watched him play agai ...

GO ARD OR GO HOME They both need a creative midfielder so it kind of makes sense that reports in Turkey - faithfully reproduced in the Daily Express - suggest that Manchester United and Liverpool are both eyeing Atletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan in January. The catch is that he has a £33m release clause in his contract and that kind of money might put him beyond Liverpool's budget at least. After all, that's almost the price of an Andy Carroll. This is what Turan's agent Ahmet Bulut said last season when there was talk of interest from both red teams: "A destination in the Premier League would be to the liking of the player and I can confirm there are clubs interested, like the two mentioned. He wants to work in England." But, to be fair, that was before Atletico Madrid threatened to break up the hegemony of the Big Two in Spain. WHO NEXT FOR UNITED?

Alex Ferguson hopes to make it third time lucky with referee Cuneyt Cakir. Turk Cakir has taken charge of two Manchester United games — and the Red Devils have won neither, losing in last season’s Europa League to Athletic Bilbao after a Champions League draw with Benfica. And United boss Fergie said: “You hope in a game of this nature that you are going to get the best refereeing performance, on the same level as the players on the pitch. “Mistakes will be made by players and the referee but you hope it will be a top performance. “You hope to get nothing less than the best. “An occasion like this deserves that.” (The Sun) .
Athletic desperately needs a change in regime The last derby match at the Estadio San Mames ended in disgust for Athletic Bilbao, as they suffered an embarrassing 1-3 loss to Real Sociedad. By Michael Moschetto Athletic conceded three goals after Ibai Gomez opened the scoring: yet another testament to La Liga’s second-worst defense. The 2012/13 campaign has been a sour disappointment for Marcelo Bielsa’s squad, as the club had been eliminated from both the Europa League and Copa del Rey before the Christmas break. This isn’t the same team that captured hearts all across the footballing world as they completely outplayed Manchester United in March 2012. This isn’t the same team that reached two cup finals later that year with a swashbuckling style of play and a fearless attitude. This season’s Athletic squad has been flat, uninspired, and simply tired. 20-year old star Iker Muniain has registered exactly one assist and zero goals so far in the domestic season. He, along with the likes of Ander He ...

Higuain to Man Utd or Juve? Gonzalo Higuain could make a move to Manchester United or Juventus at the end of the season, reports in Spain have suggested this morning. Marca claim that the relationship between Jose Mourinho and the Argentine striker has broken down to such a level that the Real Madrid striker is desperate to leave Santiago Bernabeu in the summer. The Madrid-based newspaper believe that the Premier League club are favourites for his signature, but there is also some significant interest from the Italian side as well. The Bianconeri recently agreed to sign Athletic Bilbao goalscorer Fernando Llorente in June on a free transfer, and have also been linked with David Villa. football espana admin andrew
Breaking up is hard to do, but if it comes down to a straight choice between the girlfriend and a competition that offers plenty of passion and romance, there's only one winner Dear Deirdre, I'm not a bad guy but I'm considering leaving my girlfriend at home on Valentine's Day to spend this most romantic of manufactured holidays with someone else. I know it sounds heartless but it's just that I've been seeing someone else on Thursday nights for about two years now. Her name's Europa and I've really fallen for her. It's funny, because when we first met in 2009 I wasn't the least bit interested in Europa. She seemed a bit desperate, was a tad too big for my liking, and, to be brutally honest, I was really far more into her elder, far more glamorous sister. But gradually I've come to love Europa, and indeed our Thursday nights together. Who can forget that magical night at Craven Cottage when Fulham routed Juventus? Or when Athletic Bilbao outclassed Manchester United at Old Trafford... Such wonderful memori ...
