Manchester United defender Patrice Evra is angry at manager David Moyes’ bid for Leighton Baines and is ready to leave Old Trafford.

Evra is reportedly not keen on being the Everton man’s back up and a £12million bid from United last week has left him open to the idea of returning to former club AS Monaco.

Arsenal have been told £10million is a fair price for Swansea City defender Ashley Williams, by his teammate Ben Davies.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is reportedly unwilling to meet the Swans’ valuation of the Wales centre-back, but Davies believes his captain is easily worth the money.

Chelsea have agreed personal terms with Napoli striker Edinson Cavani, but are still refusing to meet his £54million release clause.

Stamford Bridge officials have agreed a £7.2million-a-year salary with the Uruguay international striker and now need only thrash out an agreement with his club.

Tottenham Hotspur have been told they must pay £25million if they want to land transfer target Christian Benteke.

Aston Villa are desperate to hang onto the 19-goal 22-year-old and have intimated Spurs chairman Daniel Levy must be ready to pay top dollar if he wants the Belgium international.

Manchester City will turn to Brazil striker Fred or Spain international Alvaro Negredo to replace Carlos Tevez, after giving up on Edinson Cavani.

Tevez joined Juventus last week, which has left new Citizens manager Manuel Pellegrini with a space to fill in his attacking department.

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas says it would be unthinkable for the Camp Nou club to sell superstar Lionel Messi.

Former Barcelona manager Johan Cruyff suggested the Catalans sell Messi as they did not need him now they have signed Neymar, but Fabregas insisted that was not going to happen.
