Transfer Rumours-Latest

Lucas Moura - Sao Paulo
Wander Roberto/VIPCOMM
The agent of sought after Brazilian star Lucas Moura has moved to quell further speculation on the player’s future after insisting he will not be moving to Manchester United this summer.
United have already had a bid rejected for the attacking midfielder, but are unwilling to increase their offer.
Moura is currently with the Brazilian Olympic team in England and played twenty minutes against Great Britain in a warm up match last Friday at the Riverside Stadium.
Sao Paolo have reportedly slapped a £30 million price tag on the 19 year old and that was sufficient for Sir Alex Ferguson to pull out of negotiations over Moura after a summer of transfer conjecture.
And Wagner Ribeiro, a leading agent in South America, can’t envisage Moura moving anywhere else after United turned their attentions elsewhere and insisted the youngster needs to forget about the speculation.
Ribeiro told UOL, "They [Manchester United] have reached their limit. Lucas Moura won't leave. He is happy at Sao Paulo.”
“We have to forget this subject. There is no possibility he leaves now.”
"Manchester United made an offer, which was rejected and they won't make another one as they have reached their limit."

Elsewhere, Arsenal has made a rather suprisingly 15.6 Million Pounds Bid On Spain's Santi Carzola.

Luka Modric has apologised to Tottenham for missing their pre-season tour of USA and is now back in training, a move which Andre Villas-Boas welcomed even if he does not expect the Croatian midfielder to remain with his club.
The Portuguese boss declined to name his side's asking price for their star man, who is being chased by Real Madrid, but gave a revealing insight into the current situation.

"He has spoken to me and the chairman. His apology comes and it is well welcomed," Villas-Boas told reporters after their friendly with LA Galaxy finished in a 1-1 draw.

"He's now training and we hopefully make the right decision in the future. We're just waiting on the bidding clubs to offer the right value for a player of big dimension.

"Modric is of course an extremely good player that has helped Tottenham reach success in the last couple of years.

"I think the fact that it's been difficult for us to deal with clubs is because of Luka's dimension as a player and what he did for the team. He's an extremely good player. Any coach would like to count on a player of that standing."

As it stands Modric will remain in England to train, as Villas-Boas feels that the compressed travel and "tremendous heat" of the remainder of the USA trip would not necessarily help bring the 26-year-old's fitness up to par.

"We decided for him to stay in London. That's something that I have to judge," the former Chelsea boss continued.

"I think it would be unsensible to bring Luka back, but still a decision can be taken."

The 34-year-old manager seems resigned to losing the midfield schemer. Should that come to pass it would hinder Villas-Boas' efforts in his first season with the north London club, according to former Spurs striker Robbie Keane.

"When you're this far across the water it's very difficult to keep track of what things are going on," Galaxy forward Keane said of Modric's situation.

"Listen, if you lose him he's obviously a top, top player. It'd be a shame for Tottenham to lose a top player like him."

Theo Walcott's Agent Is Yet To Talk About the player's new contract with Arsenal. This not another good sign for Arsenal, as another star sets to leave the club after Robin Van Persie earlier refusing to sign a new contract. The English winger has been linked with amove to Chelsea!
