Transfer round up: Multiple midfielders ruled out, Rooney close to deal and Baines staying at Everton

by Sam Peoples

Arturo Vidal has categorically said that he does not want to leave Juventus any time soon. He told reporters that he would ‘definitely stay in Turin’ and his unwavering stance means it is unlikely he will Turin in the near future. (Goal)

Yohann Cabaye has agreed a deal in principle with Paris St Germain. David Moyes never followed up on interest in Cabaye and now he has moved to France. (Sky Sports)

Leighton Baines has signed a new long-term contract with Everton which effectively nullifies any prospect of him joining Manchester United in the summer. That’s not a bad thing because there are plenty of other top class left-backs who are much younger than Baines. (ESPN)

Fernando and his future have a big cloud of uncertainly at FC Porto. He is free to leave the club in the summer and has not signed a new contract which indicates that United’s interest would be an attractive prospect to Fernando. (A Bola)

Kurt Zouma, Eliaquim Mangala and Dante are three names still in the hat for a January transfer to United. However, Chelsea fan Zouma is likely to move to Stamford Bridge if he leaves St. Etienne but the duo of Mangala and Dante would be up for grabs if the right offer was made. (Daily Mail)

Wayne Rooney will sign a new deal with United by the end of the week. (Daily Mail)
