Man Utd boss Mourinho furious with Schweinsteiger after he rejected...
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is furious with Bastian Schweinsteiger after he turned down a move to Sporting CP.
The Daily Star says United even agreed to pay part of the German midfielder's £190,000-a-week wages in Portugal. But the 32-year-old World Cup winner dug in his heels and told Mourinho he would not go.
The angry United boss has vowed not to play the midfielder again despite Schweinsteiger claiming he is still determined to forced his way back into the picture. Mourinho has already axed him from his first-team squad and suggested he would rather pick hopefuls out of the youth team to play in midfield.
Agent eyes future Arsenal move for Almiron
Miguel Almiron would love to play for Arsenal and may get the chance to do so in the future, according to his agent.
The Paraguayan midfielder has been linked with the Gunners this week with reports suggesting that his club, Argentine outfit Lanus, were in talks with the North Londoners.
While Almiron's agent, Daniel Campos, has confirmed interest from Arsenal, he suggests that the 22-year-old is unlikely to make the move to the Premier League before Wednesday night's transfer deadline. "Actually there was an approach, but it didn't go any further," he told Sport Witness.
"I see it more for the future. "No doubt he'd be delighted to play in the Premier League and for Arsenal." Regarding a possible transfer fee for Almiron, Campos added: "That's up to Lanus. But around €10 million."
Chelsea locked in Real Madrid talks to take James on-loan
Chelsea are pushing to prise James Rodriguez away from Real Madrid today.
Marca says Chelsea will make a last minute attempt to lure Colombian Rodriguez to Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Conte would prefer a loan deal for Rodriguez but Real Madrid are holding out for a permanent move after spending around £63million on him following his impressive showing at the 2014 World Cup.
But Zidane has made it clear that he will struggle to force his way into the Madrid side this season by saying that “he could prove a problem." Rodriguez, 25, has made just two substitute appearances this season and Conte believes he could play a big part in Chelsea's title hunt.
The Blues aren't willing to meet Madrid's asking price of a whopping £65m and any hopes of a move would rely on a loan deal.
Moyes could use Januzaj to lure Pogba to Sunderland
Sunderland manager David Moyes is eyeing a late transfer swoop for Florentin Pogba.
Reports suggest that the Black Cats are showing considerable interest in the Saint-Etienne centre-back, who is the older brother of Manchester United's work record signing Paul Pogba.
Moyes has been after a new central defender after it became apparent that Everton were keen on Lamine Kone and it appears as though Pogba, 26, is now on his wish-list. The Guinea international, who has been with Saint-Etienne since 2012, would reportedly cost Sunderland around £6.5million.
It is understood that Black Cats winger Adnan Januzaj, who is on loan from United, may have a role to play in luring Pogba to the Stadium of Light as he has a close relationship with the defender's more famed brother. Hull City are also believed to be showing interest in Pogba.
Tottenham turn down Wolfsburg offer for Son Heung-min
Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly turned down an offer from Wolfsburg for Son Heung-min.
The Sun reports that Spurs rejected the German club's bid of £24million as they plan on retaining his services at White Hart Lane.
The 24-year-old forward only joined Tottenham from Bayer Leverkusen for £22m last summer and was being heavily linked with a return to the Bundesliga but is set to stay put in North London.
Son, who is away on national team duty with South Korea, said: "It is not a good sign these transfer rumours are coming out – although it is meaningful those in Germany acknowledge me."
Valencia edge ahead of Porto for Man City defender Mangala
Eliaquim Mangala will join Valencia on a season-long loan deal on Wednesday.
France Football reports that the Manchester City defender is set to move to Spain after Los Che won the race to his services.
Portuguese giants Porto were showing significant interest in Mangala but it is understood that Valencia made a better loan offer for the Frenchman.
However, the Manchester Evening News have suggested that Mangala, 25, will return to Porto on a two-year deal loan.
Either way, Mangala is out of favour at City under Pep Guardiola following the big-money arrival of John Stones and Aleksandar Kolarov's successful shift to centre-back when required, and will leave the Etihad Stadium before the transfer deadline.
