Rumour Mill – 17 June 2011

Now that silly season is well and truly underway, I will run a quick post every morning summarising the main headlines from various sources. Take from them what you will because most of the stories will be tripe, such is the quality of news reporting in England!

                                                                                               

The Independent believe that United have tabled a £9.2m bid for Raphael Varane as interest from Real Madrid picks up.

Daily Mail reports that Bolton are backing out of a bid for Wes Brown, who was considered a replacement as Cahill looked likely to exit.

TalkSport report that Ajax are offering teen sensation Nicolai Boilesen a new contract to fend off interest from United and Barcelona.

The Guardian say that United will enter a bidding war for Luka Modric that might see the price rise above £35 million.

TalkSport also report that Valencia have issued a hands off warning on star Banega to Premier League clubs.

The Telegraph Blog talks about Bebe in a good read about the young Portuguese player.

Click Manchester report that Chelsea are prepared to offer a cash plus player deal in an attempt to steal Sneijder away from possible United interest.
