Check out all the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip from today.

Manchester United's alleged interest in Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado is attracting a lot of attention, with speculation in Italy now suggesting that Louis van Gaal will return with a £27 million bid for the Fiorentina star this summer. (La Nazione)

The Red Devils apparently had a £20 million offer turned down in May, but hope that a £7 million improvement will be enough to lure the player to Old Trafford.

Of course, conflicting reports maintain that Manchester United have already lodged a bid in the region of £32 million, but Fiorentina are holding out for closer to £40 million.

In reality, it looks as though few people know what is really going on, but if Van Gaal's interest in Cuadrado is genuine, then Manchester United are going to have to pay big money for his signature, particularly after the 26-year-old's impressive showing at the World Cup this summer.

Angel di Maria

Manchester United are also believed to be at loggerheads with Real Madrid over the price of Argentine winger Angel di Maria. (Daily Star)

Louis van Gaal has been offered the chance to sign the 26-year-old, but United's £30 million valuation is £10 million less than the Spanish club's asking price.

Di Maria scored 11 goals and provided 26 assists last season, and would certainly represent the world-class signing that Red Devils fans are craving this summer.

James Rodriguez

One player Manchester United are definitely being priced out of signing is AS Monaco playmaker James Rodriguez, with the Ligue 1 club demanding €75 million for his transfer. (Marca)

The 22-year-old has been one of the leading star's at the World Cup this summer, and has seen his valuation sky-rocket to more than double what Monaco paid to bring the Colombian to Stade Louis II last summer.

Other direction

Manchester United flop Bebe remains a target for Benfica and the Portuguese giants are plotting a second offer. (A Bola)

Benfica's initial approach was rebuffed by the Red Devils as the figure was too low. But the Europa League finalists are set to return with a second improved offer once Nico Gaitan is sold.
