Papers: Reds in for Bos?

Fergie's £15.8m bid for Bos
United have bid £15.8million for Portugal right-back Jose Bosingwa. SunSport can reveal Porto received the offer yesterday but want no less than £22m. United boss Alex Ferguson sees him as the successor to Gary Neville. Bosingwa, 25, is similar in style to Patrice Evra and a £55k-a-week deal with the player and his agent has been agreed. Fergie first made a move in January and No2 Carlos Queiroz was sent to open talks.

The Daily Star reckons Sir Alex is lining up a bid for West Ham striker Dean Ashton.

Hammers' boss Alan Curbishley believes the United boss will retire if he wins two more Premier League titles and one more Champions League.

Angry Avram Grant will today accuse Curbishley of potentially destroying the integrity of the Premier League by saying that he wants to see United win the title. Grant is furious that Curbishley has gone public on his wishes to see Sir Alex win a 10th crown when United meet West Ham on Saturday.
