Spanish paper AS reports that United have made a 24m euro
bid for Vicente Rodriguez a Valencia midfielder. Apparently,
bid was made not through player's representative, but
through an agency in Valencia which club also used when they
were interested in Etoo last summer. Valencia President Orti
says Rodriguez has contract until 2007 and is going nowhere.
It is also rumoured that Abramovich has upped stakes with
Fernando Torres after United's offer of 30m Euro plus Diego
was turned down by Atleti. Chelsea are offering 36million
euros plus Hasselbaink and Makelele (valued at 18m). Juve
are said to be watching situation.
