Man Utd eye Porto teen Dalot

Manchester United are closing in on a move for Porto defender Diogo Dalot, according to the  Daily Record .

The teenager broke into the Porto first team this season and can play as a full-back on either flank.

Such is his potential his release clause has been set at €20 million (£17.4m/$23m), but the Red Devils are willing to pay that as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his backline.

Ronaldo disappointed at lack of Man Utd effort

Cristiano Ronaldo has apparently been left very disappointed at Manchester United for their failure to go all out to sign him, Don Balon   reports.

The Real Madrid star caused a stir with his post-match comments after the Champions League final having suggested he may not be staying with Los Blancos.

And he is reportedly not happy with United for not pushing hard to bring him back to Old Trafford, with the club unable to match his €50 million (£44m/$58m) wage demands.

Bale may cost £335 million for Man Utd

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho fears his club may be priced out of signing Gareth Bale because of a massive £335 million (€384m/$446m) cost of doing business, according to the  Mirror .

After Bale’s Champions League winning display, Real Madrid want £200m (€229m/$266m) for the Wales international, who then would require another £135m (€155m/$180m) in total wages over four years.

That figure has left Mourinho doubting the Red Devils will shell out for a 28-year-old who has struggled with injuries in the past.
