Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is trying to pip Chelsea to the signing of Brazilian teenager Lucas Moura, the Daily Mirror say.
Ferguson is reported to have sent a delegation to Brazil to thrash out a deal to sign the Sao Paulo midfielder and is pleading with United’s owners to spend up to £30m on him.
Real Madrid are also said to be interested in Moura, who has already played for his country and is regarded as one of the world’s top prospects.
It’s believed that Witsel – reportedly a target for Chelsea and Real Madrid – will be allowed to leave if Anderson signs for the Portuguese club.
Meanwhile, QPR’s Jamie Mackie is wanted by Southampton and West Ham, according to The Sun.
Mackie signed a new contract at the end of last season, committing his future to Rangers until 2015.
Fulham are interested in signing Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson, according to the Mail.
The player’s agent Fabio Alho is quoted as saying: “Fulham and Ajax both want to be kept informed about Chris.”
