09.14 BST: STAGGERING! SENSATION! Here’s the Mirror: “Manchester United have agreed a staggering £26 million deal with Sao Paulo for Brazil sensation Lucas Moura.”
The paper says the fee for the 19-year-old has been settle on and it is now a question of terms being agreed with the Sao Paolo forward’s advisers.
Lucas is currently in London as part of Brazil’s squad for the Olympics, and the Mirror says the fee United have agreed – double what Chelsea were reported to have offered for him – means they are on the verge of signing a player they have tracked since March.

08.58 BST: More from Arsenal, and not necessarily good: Arsene Wenger says he does not know when midfielder Jack Wilshere will be fit to play again. Wilshere has been out of action for a year, and is currently recovering from a double operation to cure ankle and knee problems.
The 20-year-old has suffered no setbacks following surgery in May, but Wenger said: “I am positive but a bit cautious because we had so much disappointing news with him.
"Everybody in the medical department says to me he’s doing very well. He is still in the gym. Any player still in the gym in July is not on the pitch in August I don’t want to give him any precise deadline because that would put him under huge pressure. I’m trying to go step-by-step with him, but the news is positive.”
08.52 BST: Further confirmation that the Premier League is the land that any semblance of financial sense or normality forgot: Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany has signed a new contract. And what’s that worth? Just the £34 million, says the Sun.
The paper says the deal is thought to be for five years and worth £130,000 or so a week. It has yet to be signed but has been verbally agreed. Well, you would agree to that sort of contract, wouldn’t you?
08.30 BST: In a long-awaited change of circumstances, today’s transfer news and rumours are brought to you on a day featuring blue skies and sunshine. Some things, though, don’t change: another day, another Robin Van Persie story.
The Sun reports that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reiterated his desire to keep his skipper at the Emirates, but has also indicated that – one way or the other – he wants the issue resolved before the start of the new season.
As we all know, because we keep on hearing it, Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus are the main names in the frame to sign the Netherlands international. United were reported to be favourites last week, but so far none of the clubs have offered anything close to Arsenal’s valuation of more than £20 million.
Speaking in Malaysia at the start of Arsenal’s pre-season tour, Wenger said: “Van Persie is a world-class striker and I am a big supporter of him. I have supported him throughout. He has one year left and is in demand, but our desire is to keep him.
“However, we will do what is in best interest of the club. If you have a decoder in your head, you can decode that. The official transfer deadline is August 31, but then we can create an internal deadline.”
Wenger confirmed that he meant resolving things before the start of the season, and also hit out at Van Persie’s agent, Kees Vos, after the striker issued a statement earlier in the summer that said he would not be signing a new deal with the Gunners.
“I wouldn’t like to comment too much on that situation because you’re not always sure that it’s Van Persie’s statement, you know,” he said.
Van Persie has not joined the Arsenal party on the tour, staying in London as the speculation around his future swirls on. And on.
Meanwhile, news from the other side of the North London divide, and a saga that’s threatening to become almost Van Persie-like. Luka Modric, Spurs and Madrid – and now it’s getting petulant.
“Luka on strike!” says the Sun, which reports that Modric has refused to fly with Tottenham on their pre-season US tour in an attempt to force through a move to Real.
Spurs have said they will only let the Croatian go for the right price – thought to be around £40 million – but Madrid have so far failed to offer anything close to that, and that has left Modric attempting to force the issue.
The Sun says Spurs will fine the playmaker £15,000 for each day of his “strike”, having already fined him £80,000 for his refusal to train last week.
New Spurs coach Andre Villas-Boas, who could surely have done without all this nonsense, said: “Modric is wrong. This will go against him. He has worsened the situation and now the chairman [Daniel Levy] is very angry.”
