Journalists in Spain and Italy have been working overtime to rehash some old stories in the last couple of days.

Apparently we are still interested in Sporting Lisbon’s teenage midfielder Ricardo Quaresma, but we are set to join Manchester United and Liverpool in missing out.

AC Milan are so keen on the youngster with little first team experience that they are going to offer £10 million him, according to the Italian press.

It’s been a week or so since we were last linked with Michael Reiziger of Barcelona, but apparently he’s on his way in January.

The Dutch international defender will join on-loan with a view to a permanent move next season. According to the Spanish press anyway.
