Tottenham and MancheUnited in transfer battle

It appears that it's not just going to be on the pitch where Tottenham and Manchester United will be battling it out ahead of Friday's Premier League game in N17.

According to reports from AS in Spain (via Sport Witness), the clubs are going to 'fight tooth and nail' to sign Pervis Estupinan from Watford.

The Ecuador international joined the Hornets in 2016 from LDU Quito but has yet to make an appearance for the club after spending the past four seasons on loan at various Spanish sides.


The left-back is currently making an impression at Osasuna and it's not just the Premier League pair who are believed to be keen on him.

The report from the Madrid-based newspaper states that Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are also interested in the player.

One thing for sure is that Watford will want a big fee for their player if he is to join a rival Premier League club this summer.

Player 'not really won over' by Tottenham

M'Baye Niang's name has recently cropped up regarding a move to Tottenham.The Rennes ace has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past but he has yet to make the move.Amid talk of a switch to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to help bolster Jose Mourinho's frontline, it appears that he doesn't seem overly keen on a switch to N17.


French publication L'Equipe (via Sport Witness ) claim that the Senegal international has 'not really been won over' by the Lilywhites as he will only be cover for Harry Kane.

Niang reportedly is focusing on a move to Marseille instead but the €20million the French club are wanting for his services may be too much for Andre Villas-Boas' side.

The ex-AC Milan player has also been linked with a shock move to Qatar to join Al-Duhail.

Neviile makes Man United claim

Phil Neville has stated that his former club are "looking in great shape" ahead of Friday's game at Spurs.

Whereas the Lilywhites were winless in six games prior to the break in play, United were undefeated in 11 games in all competitions.

Spurs have been boosted by the return of some key players leading up to the fixture but the ex-Everton man had admitted that the Red Devils are looking good.

"You look at Tottenham's form before the cancellation of this period wasn't great," the former player told Premier League productions (via Manchester Evening News). "But now, it's going to be a totally different team.
