Ganso to Manchester United? REUTERS

The pick of today's Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and Bundesliga football transfer rumours, news and gossip for 10 October, 2011. All the latest transfer rumours surrounding Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Roma, Barcelona and Real Madrid will be covered here.

AC Milan are prepared to duke it out with Manchester United for the services of highly-rated Santos midfielder Ganso, according to reports in Monday's Metro.

The Italian giants are ready to offer £21m in January but could face stiff competition from Sir Alex Ferguson who was linked with the 21-year-old Brazilian international in the summer. However, the player's £40m buyout clause is likely to prove prohibitive, with Qatari-backed Paris Saint-Germain also interested.

Noisy neighbours Manchester City are ready to offload wantaway striker Carlos Tevez to Real Madrid, according to the Mirror.

Tevez's two-week suspension following his 'Munich Mutiny' ends on Thursday but City boss Roberto Mancini has made it clear the Argentine international is unlikely to feature again at Eastlands.

Jose Mourinho is a keen admirer of the striker but a potential January deal could falter over City's £35m valuation and the player's £250,000-a-week wage demands.

In London, Arsenal are lining up a summer move for Real Madrid 'starlet' Jose Rodriguez after boss Arsene Wenger set up a deal with the La Liga club.

The 16-year-old midfielder could be offered a five-year contract in July after impressing in the Under-17s World Championships.

Across town, Chelsea are interested in a Real Madrid 'starlet' of their own, with Jose Angel Pozo linked with the Stamford Bridge outfit.

Finally, Liverpool are planning a 'double swoop' for midfield duo Moussa Sissoko and Shinji Kagawa, according to the good folks at And that's your lot for today.
