"I don't rule out the possibility that in the future we open negotiations with Manchester United as we received them with great courtesy," Lopes told Radio Estadao ESPN.
08.59 BST: And the Mail’s take on Arsenal this morning: Arsene Wenger is increasingly confident of persuading Theo Walcott to sign a new contract.
Walcott has been linked with a move to either Liverpool or Chelsea and said earlier this week: “As a player you want to win titles, which we have not been doing - but I believe we will soon.”
08.56 BST: The Mail also reports the heating up of the Joe Allen to Liverpool situation, but says there could be an Anfield exit on the cards as well.
Defender Martin Skrtel, who appears to be a man in increasing demand, could rejoin his former club Zenit St Petersburg on a £110,000-a-week contract. Napoli and Manchester City are also interested in signing the centre-half.
08.50 BST: MODRIC ALERT: Real Madrid “claim they urged wantaway Tottenham star Luka Modric to end his one-man protest”, says the Mirror.
The Spanish champions have hit out at rumours that they encouraged Modric to refuse to fly out on Tottenham’s tour trip to America as the saga of his potential transfer – Spurs want £35 million, at least, for him – rumbles on.
But if it’s not Madrid, says the Mirror, it might be Paris Saint Germain, who are reportedly willing to meet the asking price as their summer of being linked with every footballer under the sun continues.
And smokin’ striker Dimitar Berbatov’s life in the Old Trafford shadows could be about to come to an end: he is being lined up for a £5 million move to Zenit St Petersburg, according to the paper.
AC Milan and West Ham are also reported to be interested, while “several German clubs would like to take the ex-Bayer Leverkusen striker back to the Bundesliga”.
08.43 BST: The Star also has Allen to Liverpool, but puts a different financial structure on it: the paper says Liverpool have bid £10 million and offered a player on loan as part of the package.
That, apparently, hasn’t gone down too well with the Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins, who is “fuming... he feels Liverpool are breaking an agreement not to poach Rodgers’ former players”.
The paper also dabbles in a bit of striker speculation: Demba Ba, it says, is being offered a £95,000-a-week deal to join stupendously wealthy Russians Rubin Kazan from Newcastle. Ba is “available at a cut-price fee until the end of July” and had, according to the report, previously rejected a move to the Russian club before leaving Hoffenheim to come to England.
08.29 BST: If it’s not Robin van Persie, it’s not Luca Modric and it’s not Andy Carroll, then it must be... Joe Allen. Many of the papers this morning seem to think that a reunion for the Swansea midfielder and his former manager Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool is pretty imminent.
The Sun says the Reds are ready to make Allen their second signing of the summer by “triggering a £15million release clause in his contract”. The 23-year-old has a clause enabling him to leave for that amount if Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City or Arsenal come in for him.
Earlier this month, Rodgers confirmed that he would be interested in bringing Allen to Anfield – but the Sun says he may not be alone in wanting to sign him, with Tottenham and Andre Villas-Boas also said to be keen.
Meanwhile, over in North London Arsene Wenger is apparently getting ready to spend some more money, possibly to distract him from the ongoing and never-ending saga of Robin Van Persie's future.
The Sun says the Gunners boss is confident of bringing Spain winger Santi Corzola in from Malaga for £16 million, having already added Lukas Podolski and Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud to his Emirates ranks.
He “is also set to pursue 17-year-old striker M’Baye Niang who plays for French club Caen, although he has already seen a £6m bid rejected”.
And Thierry Henry hasn’t ruled out another emotional return to Arsenal at some stage and in some capacity. “I would like to go back to England with Arsenal for sure,” he said.
“I wasn’t planning to go back to play last season. It was only because Gervinho and Chamakh went to the African Nations Cup. I was there to train and they asked me if I wanted to play. Who knows what might happen in the future?
“I’ve not yet spoken to Arsene about it so I don’t know what capacity I could go back in. But I will go back to Arsenal.”
Still in London, over in the East this time, Big Sam Allardyce is being linked with a £2 million move to bring Aston Villa’s James Collins to Upton Park. If the deal goes through, Collins would begin a second spell with the Hammers, whom he first joined in 2005.
