Clubs are trying to be active in the summer window now the sun has come out, with Manchester United and City trying to set the benchmark.

In order to match their local rivals Manchester United have lined up a £65million for club favourite Cristiano Ronaldo, but it is unlikely that Real Madrid will want to part with their prize asset, but it is well known the Portuguese forward wouldn't mind a return to England (Sun)

It's one in, one out at Old Trafford, as Monaco make a bid for Patrice Evra, with David Moyes hoping to replace the Frenchman with his trusted Everton left-back Leighton Baines, according to the Daily Mirror. The Monte Carlo outfit are also keen on offering £150,000 tax-free to Mr Chelsea, John Terry, for some reason (Daily Telegraph)

Pep Guardiola is making plans for how to make Bayern Munich even better, and that includes putting in a £15million offer for Arsenal's one decent centre-back Laurent Koscielny (Daily Mail)

Another one of the Catalan's ideas, involves swapping the forever hungry Luis Suarez, for the perennially bald Arjen Robben to liven up the attacking options of the Bavarians (Sun)
