Angel di Maria set for Manchester United medical

Manchester United's plan to sign Angel di Maria is progressing, with a fee agreed with Real Madrid. Di Maria said his goodbyes to Real's players this weekend, with Xabi Alonso wishing him well publicly on Twitter, mentioning Manchester United in the message. The Mirror report that Di Maria is to fly out on Monday, and is scheduled to undertake his medical, with United keen to get all the paperwork and work permit complete so he can feature against Burnley next weekend. The paper also add that Di Maria will get United's iconic number 7 shirt, previously worn by Real teammate Cristiano Ronaldo.

Everton looking at Eto'o and Welbeck

Two-time Champions League winner Samuel Eto'o could be heading for Everton, report The Guardian. Manager Roberto Martinez is reported to be 'weighing up' signing the Cameroonian striker on a free transfer. Eto'o was at Chelsea last season on a one-year deal but is still without a club. He has also been linked with Liverpool in recent days. Everton are also considering Danny Welbeck, report the same paper, who is widely reported to be available from Manchester United.

Liverpool to seal Balotelli deal

Liverpool are to seal the signing of Mario Balotelli this Monday, with the striker expected to put pen to paper on a three-year-deal, report the Liverpool Echo. Balotelli was pictured on Merseyside on Friday night but flew back to Italy for the weekend, and is due back over the next 24 hours. The Echo claim that Balotelli could be in attendance at The Etihad as Liverpool take on his former side on Monday night.

Southampton bid for Andros Townsend

Southampton have submitted a £12 million offer for Andros Townsend, report SkySports. Spurs rejected a £10 million bid from the Saints last week, and it is unlikely the increased offer will see them change their stance. With eight full days remaining of the transfer window, it would not be a surprise to see Southampton return with a third bid for the England international winger.

Juventus pushing for Lukas Podolski

Juventus are to hold talks with Arsenal over the future of Lukas Podolski, the Guardian report. The German international is yet to feature this season for the Gunners, and is not expected to play a major role in midweek against Besiktas in the Champions League. Juventus want to sign the forward on a season long loan, but Arsene Wenger is only likely to sanction a permanent move, the paper claim, looking for around £10 million.

How will Di Maria perform for United? Should Spurs sell Townsend?
