Manchester United believe they can land Owen Hargreaves soon.
Bayern Munich's board meet today to consider United's improved bid of £20million.
The German giants initially said that they wanted to hang on to England midfielder Hargreaves, 26, until the summer.
But now they are trying to sign a replacement for Hargreaves before announcing a decision.
Elsewhere reports suggest that Spurs are in talks with Southampton after having a £10 million bid for Gareth Bale accepted by the club.
