As we entered the weekend we covered the fact that the Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin wanted to secure a move away from the club inside the next five days.

It was heavily hinted that it was a straight race for the 25-year-old Frenchman between Arsenal and Manchester United.

Yesterday the inference was that United were ahead in the race but there was a small problem of Arsenal being prepared to cough up the full £25 million transfer fee whilst United wanted to offer £20 million plus the other £5 million as performance related add-ons.

Well this morning, the inference being given off by the Sunday Mirror is that a deal is all but done to take Schneiderlin to Old Trafford.

It is also being claimed that Manchester United are also set to continue their summer spending by following up their interest in the 26-year-old Dutch goalkeeper, Jasper Cillessen, who is on the books of Ajax and rated at £20 million.

Keep them peeled as Shaw Taylor was so fond of telling viewers of Police 5!
