This is what we need, just two or three quality players.

Manchester United have reportedly agreed a £13.1million ($20.3 million) fee for Hoffenheim and Brazil attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino.

The 23-year-old, who scored the winning goal in Brazil's recent 1-0 win over Honduras, is currently on international duty at the Copa America.

Firmino has scored three times in six appearances for Brazil and is likely to be a key figure for Dunga's Brazil side in Chile.

He scored 10 goals and contributed 12 assists in the Bundesliga last season as Hoffenheim finished eighth and missed out on a place in the Europa League by just two points.

Several sources suggest Firmino is chasing a move from the club and that United have agreed a transfer for the player, whose versatility would fit into Louis van Gaal's thinking.

He will undergo a medical at the Copa America this month and his transfer will be concluded once the tournament concludes, according to the latest reports.

£13m for Firmino would be great business. Is he a striker or is he another Coutinho?

I've heard people rave about him but I wasn't sure if he played in the same position or part of a front three for instance.

Oh and fuck off

Ravel Morrison set to leave Lazio without making an appearance as QPR target move for the troubled midfielder
  • Former Manchester United starlet Ravel Morrison wants return to England
  • Midfielder could leave Serie A club Lazio without playing a game for them
  • Morrison, 22, is reportedly homesick and QPR are keen on signing him
  • Has been training with Lazio since signing for them earlier this year

By CHRIS WHEELER FOR THE DAILY MAIL and MIKE KEEGAN FOR THE DAILY MAIL
PUBLISHED: 12:58, 12 June 2015 | UPDATED: 21:33, 12 June 2015

It says much about the ever-changing world of Ravel Morrison that his stay in the Eternal City appears to be over after a few months. Ravel and Rome always felt like a peculiar arrangement.

Lazio were still maintaining on Friday that the former Manchester United wonderkid will stay and play for them next season. ‘I’ve seen what’s in the media but these things don’t interest me,’ the club’s sporting director Igli Tare said.

But news that Morrison may be homesick and wants to leave without having kicked a ball in anger will surprise no one who has followed his chequered career closely.

The player’s representatives are said to be trying to broker a release from the pre-contract he signed with Lazio earlier this year and talks have begun with QPR, one of six clubs with which he has been associated by the age of 22.

On the surface, Morrison appeared to be settling down in his new life. He has trained at Lazio’s Formello HQ, since his contract at West Ham was ripped up in February even though FIFA rules prohibited him from playing for the club in Serie A last season.

In April, he posted a picture of himself in a blue Lazio bathrobe on Instagram, and as recently as last week was said to be making progress with his Italian lessons.

However, several sightings in his hometown of Manchester and reports that he has been reunited with his on-off girlfriend Reah Dixon, who has shared a photo of the two of them on social media, meant that few people were surprised to learn that Morrison may have had a change of heart.

It would not be the first backward step in a once hugely promising career.

Morrison, of course, is the young tearaway that even Sir Alex Ferguson couldn’t tame.

‘I think he’s better out of Manchester to be honest with you,’ said the former United boss after Morrison left the club for West Ham in 2012, referring to the questionable company he was keeping.

On one occasion, Morrison was in a car stopped by police close to the city centre which was found to be carrying guns and drugs. By then, he had already been cautioned for an assault on his mother, Sharon Ryan, at the age of 15.

Born in Wythenshawe and raised in the tough area of Denton, he twice narrowly avoided jail in 2011 after admitting two counts of witness intimidation towards a mugging victim and was then found guilty of criminal damage for throwing his girlfriend’s mobile phone out of a window during a heated row. Morrison was also arrested and charged with assaulting his ex-partner and her mother last summer but the case was dropped in January, clearing the way for his move to Italy.

His talent has never been in doubt. In fact, Ferguson rated him as the best young player he had witnessed coming through United’s youth academy since Paul Scholes.

But many feared he lacked dedication, sometimes skipping training to play football with his friends instead.

‘He had a tendency to disappear for the odd day or two and then we would manage to find him and bring him back in,’ said Ferguson’s No 2 Mike Phelan.

‘At United there were other things going on which were a distraction for him and that played a part in his downfall. It’s easy to say we let our most promising player leave but is it worth the hassle to wait and maybe not see fruition to it?’ Birmingham considered terminating Morrison’s loan from West Ham over his attitude to training, and a similar agreement with Cardiff was cut short in December due to ‘personal circumstances’.

His brief spell at QPR was more encouraging, and Morrison even emerged as an outside contender for a place in England’s World Cup squad last summer.

But Sam Allardyce, like Ferguson, lost patience in the end. ‘You can lead the horse to water but you can’t make it drink,’ lamented the former Hammers boss.

On Friday, as the Italian media claimed that Manchester City have launched a £58million bid to take his old United youth team-mate Paul Pogba back to England from Juventus, Morrison might want to think about that.

Chelsea are close to signing 29-year-old striker Radamel Falcao on a season-long loan from Ligue 1 side Monaco, despite the Colombia international's underwhelming campaign at Manchester United. (Sunday Telegraph)

It looks like Carlos Bacca is off to Roma. According to his agent : “Carlos is deeply religious. And in Rome, there is the pope. And apart from that we are talking about one of the best clubs [Roma].”

Hold on, I thought we didn't want to sign more potential? Now we are not getting this lad, we should be? I can't keep up.

Falcao looked like a lost soul in Columbias first game on the Copa.

Chelsea can afford to take the risk. If he gets back to form, he'll be an amazing signing & sure if he stays as shit as he has been in the premier league.... he'll be just another squad player on huge wages that Chelsea can afford to take on.

Win win situation for them.

I think Spurs will finish above us next season, the squads are close in ability, and their's might just edge it, but I think Pochettino is a better manager.

To be fair they did finish above us.

You could say there's nothing especially good about that since they've finished above us for 5 of the last 6 seasons.
