Papers: Fab wants OT move

Brazilian after Manchester United move
Brazil star Luis Fabiano has issued a remarkable plea to Manchester United to sign him this summer. With Sir Alex Ferguson in the market for a striker, £15million-rated Fabiano claims he would not fail to deliver goals for United because of the service he would receive at Old Trafford. Fabiano, 29, has 90 goals from 187 games for Sevilla but, with only a year left on his contract, he is ready for a move. And his stock could rise if he shines at the World Cup. He said: “If you are asking me what team I most admire it is Manchester United. If you play under Sir Alex Ferguson then you are probably going to win a title or another major trophy.”

That's not the only transfer speculation in today's tabloids. The Sun claim Dimitar Berbatov will be heading to AC Milan in the summer... in a swap deal for Dutch striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. The Milan vice president said: "When Klaas was at Real Madrid, he had the chance to go to England, Germany or Italy, and he chose Milan. But England could be a future solution."

The Daily Mail, meanwhile, say United are trying to sign "Nigerian wonderkid Ramon Azeez, despite work permit difficulties and interest from Manchester City."

In other news, The Sun report Aaron Lennon will line up for Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday; he hasn't played since December after suffering a pelvic injury.
