Papers: Reds target Pozuelo

United have got Poz-itive vibes
According to The Sun, United are keeping tabs on Real Betis striker Alejandro Pozuelo with the 20-year-old hitman rated in the £4.5million class. Barcelona and Villarreal have also been trailing the Seville-born starlet, who has played only 218 minutes of football in La Liga. United's scouts were spotted at recent matches and Alvaro Vadillo has already been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford.

The same newspaper claims Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo could return to the Theatre of Dreams to play in Rio Ferdinand's testimonial next year, although the event has not been confirmed.

Tomasz Kuszczak's interview in the Polish media has been picked up by several newspapers, including The Daily Mail. "I don't want to slander or criticise Sir Alex Ferguson," he stated. "It's not my style. I've talked to Ferguson recently and asked him to let me leave the club now, before the January transfer window." Sheffield United boss Danny Wilson has confirmed making an enquiry for the Pole and Doncaster are also admirers, it has been revealed in The Sheffield Star.

Andreas Pereira's suggestion that he has sealed a move to United in January is also covered in a number of newspapers. The Guardian pick up on the PSV Eindhoven teenager's comment that the personal touch from Sir Alex helped convince him to head to Manchester when he turns 16.

Finally, Luis Suarez has had his say on the on-field row with Patrice Evra during the recent 1-1 draw with Liverpool. His quotes are repeated in The Daily Telegraph as he says: "The FA will have to clear it up with him, because there is no proof at all that I have said anything racist. I didn’t say anything like that to him. Depending on who ends up in the wrong, one of us will have to apologise."
