Video: Latest transfer news - Angel Di Maria set to join Manchester United for a record fee as Samuel Eto'o closes in on Everton deal

A run-down of today's best gossip

Check out the latest football transfer gossip with our daily video round-up.

On Tuesday, Angel Di Maria is expected to become the most expensive purchase in British transfer history as he nears a £59.7 million move to Manchester United from Real Madrid. Di Maria was at Manchester United’s training ground this morning to finalise the deal.

United are still keen on signing midfielder Arturo Vidal who has been the focus of the club’s attention all summer. Juventus’s valuation of £34 million was considered prohibitive but United are now open to making a move for the midfielder after a disappointing start to the season.

Elsewhere, Samuel Eto'o is close to agreeing a two-year deal at Everton. Eto'o could even sign in time to play against his old club Chelsea this Saturday.
