Wigan receive Valencia bids

Valencia: Linked with United and Real

Sky Sports News understands Wigan have received bids in excess of £16million from Manchester United and Real Madrid for Antonio Valencia.

The Ecuadorian winger has long been linked with the two European giants and it is now reported that the pair have tabled offers.

United are searching for creativity after big-money signing Nani has failed to live up to expectations and Valencia is said to have impressed boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Real are desperate to overthrow Spanish and continental champions Barcelona and the 23-year-old was thought to be close to a move in the winter transfer window.

Kaka to have talks with Millan

Milan set for Kaka talks

Kaka: Real target

AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has scheduled talks with Kaka where he will make a last-ditch attempt to ensure the Brazilian remains at the San Siro.

The playmaker appears close to a world-record move to Real Madrid and the deal could be confirmed on Monday, while Chelsea are thought to be monitoring the situation.

But Berlusconi has yet to give up hope that he will be able to convince Kaka, who was the subject of a failed bid from Manchester City in the winter, to stay in Italy.

“(Milan general manager Adriano) Galliani and I arranged to meet last Sunday,” he told Milan Channel.

Gareth Barry on Man City and England

Gareth Barry celebrated his £12million transfer to City by grabbing the all-important opening goal for England in Kazakhstan – and then admitted that his Blue move had taken his mind off preparations.

Midfielder Barry’s rare header after 39 minutes was only his second England goal and put Fabio Capello’s side on the way to a 4-0 qualifying win in Almaty that kept up our 100 per cent record at the top of the table.

He said: “That was a special moment, I don’t get many headers so I was delighted to see that one creep in. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t distracted earlier on in the week because I had other things on my mind.
