Kicking off our report we head to Manchester United, where fans will be pleased to hear that the club will be offering under fire boss David Moyes a transfer kitty of £200 million in order to complete his summer revamp of the squad.
Rumours this morning are that a five-man shortlist of potential purchases has been drawn up, which includes Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan, centre back Eliaquim Mangala, midfielder’s Toni Kroos and William Carvalho, as well as Southampton starlet Luke Shaw.
And it appears that the Premier League champions aren’t the only team willing to spend big this summer, as reports suggest that both Arsenal and Chelsea are willing to splash €38million in order to prise Diego Costa away from Atletico Madrid.
The high-flying La Liga striker has a release clause embedded in his contract which means he is available so long as clubs meet the sum and both Arsenal and Chelsea, who want new frontmen for different reasons, are said to be willing to pay big to get their man.
Now, on the subject of La Liga, it would appear that Real Madrid have virtually assured their qualification from the second-round of the Champions League, as they humbled Schalke 6-1 last night in Germany.
Braces from Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale gave Los Blancos a stunning 6-0 lead against the home side, before Klass Jan Huntelaar hammered home a consolation goal with a terrific volley late on.
And finally, Amir Khan will fight Floyd Mayweather in the future, despite the fact that the American has snubbed him for their proposed May 3rd bout.
The unbeaten world champion opted for Marcos Maidana ahead of Khan, but it’s believed that he is still eyeing a fight in the future, providing the Englishman suffers no more setbacks in his career.
