Check out the latest football transfer gossip with our daily video round-up.
On Friday, Paris Saint-Germain's manager, Laurent Blanc, said that the French club would not try to sign Angel Di Maria due to Financial Fair Play regulations, thus clearing the way for Manchester United to attempt to finalise a deal with the Argentinian, who is currently at Real Madrid.
United are also apparently joining the race for another Madrid player, Sami Khedira. Khedira told Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti that he wanted to leave the club this summer.
Liverpool are still interested in free agent striker Samuel Eto'o despite their signing of Mario Balotelli this week. After the sale of Luis Suarez, Liverpool only have Daniel Sturridge and Rickie Lambert as first-team strikers.
