Alan Smith will spark fury among Leeds fans when he finally completes a 7million move to Manchester United within the next 48 hours.

The controversial deal is a package which will see left-back Danny Pugh arrive at Elland Road, despite the fact Leeds are still without a manager.

Manchester United have refused to comment, but an announcement is expected to be confirmed to the Stock Exchange once Smith has completed his medical, due to take place on Wednesday.

Villarreal have switched their attentions to Manchester United's Diego Forlan after talks broke down over top target Henrik Larsson. The Spanish side are keen to bolster their attack for next season and had put Larsson top of their shopping list.

Forlan's future at United is uncertain after the recent capture of Alan Smith from Leeds United.

The arrival of Smith increases competition for places in United's attack and it would seem to push Forlan further down the pecking order.

Paris St Germain president Francis Graille believes Gabriel Heinze will soon complete a 6million move to Manchester United.

Heinze, currently on international duty with Argentina, was one of the most impressive defenders in the French Ligue 1 last season.

United have never disguised their interest in the 26-year-old and now a deal could be moving closer.

Paris St Germain president Francis Graille has warned Manchester United that a number of Spanish clubs are queuing up to sign Old Trafford target Gabriel Heinze.

The PSG chief is frustrated that United have not yet met his asking price for the 26-year-old Argentinian central defender, and he would happily sell Heinze to another club.

Axed Real Madrid coach Carlos Queiroz is in line for a return to Manchester United as assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson, according to reports. Queiroz failed to win a trophy in his single season at the Bernabeu and is expected to link up again with boss Ferguson, with whom he helped bring the Premiership title to Old Trafford in 2002/03, rather than seek another manager's position of his own. United surrendered their domestic crown this season, failing to compete with a dominant Arsenal side, with Ferguson working alone before hiring Walter Smith as his number two for the last three months of the campaign. Ferguson told Queiroz he would always be welcome back at Old Trafford and United could now offer the 51-year-old a one-year rolling contract. An announcement could be made by the end of the week.

Yea it looks like Carlos is comming back, he made a huge mistake going to Real but who wouldn't take the job if it was offered.

Oliver Kahn's father has claimed that Manchester United are courting the Bayern Munich goalkeeper.

Rolf Kahn told the Munich-based newspaper AZ that the Premiership giants are interested in taking his son to Old Trafford this summer.

Carlos Queiroz has bounced from abject failure at Real Madrid, where he missed out on silverware despite having the best attacking side in the world, to a new three-year contract as assistant manager at Manchester United.

The Old Trafford club have announced the return of Queiroz after a year away in charge of Real, where he finished fourth and ended with five straight defeats - their worst ever league sequence.

But that has not stopped Sir Alex Ferguson inviting the 51-year-old back for a second stint at the fallen champions, after the Mozambique-born coach quit last summer to join David Beckham at the Bernabeu.

Queiroz seems to hope he'll be the successor to Fergie, but I don't think he stands a chance. They'll want to appoint someone with a proven record of winning things.

I don't think Fergie is the same force as he once was, and I really believe United are going to start slipping. There dominance is up, and I couldn't be happier.

Well i think they will be on the up again. A couple of new signings and they will be well away again. Ferdinand will be like getting a new player once his ban has ended and Christian Ronaldo looks like the next footballing superstar. I expect them to be up their challenging next season.

As for Ferguson he may well be comming ot the end but he still has a bit of fight left in him. I dunno who they could replace him with though. Martin O'neil has always been the favoured choice. I wonder if that is why he has not left Celtic yet as he has had plenty of offers to manange other clubs these last few years.

O'Neil really wanted to come to us but we wanted someone with a proven record of winning things (and the Scottish league does not count, my nan could win that), no doubt Utd will do likewise.

Everyone has their ups and downs, I honestly believe their down is coming.

I can't see how though. They have the players to win championships without doubt and the money to buy new ones.

You can't see how? Well then I'll tell you...

Rafael Benitez, Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho.

They'll laugh at Fergies stale mind games (as two already have) and will stick them up his arse royally. They may have worked with Kevin Keegan but they wont work with these shrewd guys.

Thats all well and good but it's the players on the pitch that will count not Fergies rants and mind games with other managers.

Well that's what won him half his titles. Looking at his stupid watch and winding up other managers, without these they truly are effected don't doubt it.

Also, most of their best players are starting to wind down and some not up to it anymore, I think he's become too loyal to them. With the exception of Rinaldo most of his signings have been awful.

Manchester United are expected to complete the signing of 6million-rated defender Gabriel Heinze later today. The 26-year-old Argentina international will arrive from Paris St Germain after an impressive season with the French club. United have never disguised their interest in Heinze, who is a regular on the international circuit.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been looking to strengthen his defensive options with Rio Ferdinand receiving an eight-month ban for missing a drugs test. Heinze's imminent arrival means Ferguson will have spent around 13million already this summer to reinforce his squad. United splashed out 7million to bring in striker Alan Smith from Leeds.

Sir Alex Ferguson believes Argentina defender Gabriel Heinze will be "a great acquisition" for Manchester United because of his versatility at the back.

The club confirmed the 6.9million signing of the former Paris St Germain player to the Stock Exchange this afternoon.

Heinze is the second new recruit of the summer as Old Trafford boss Ferguson attempts to overtake Arsenal and regain the title next season.

Well as it say's one impressive season. I must say i havn't really heard of him so it remains to be seen if he is THAT good. Ferguson has made a couple of dodgey signings in the past and could this be another?

Reports in Italy claim that Manchester United are trailing Parma starlet Guiseppe Rossi. The 17-year-old is a regular for the Italy Under-17 side but is unlikely to be offered a professional contract at the Ennio Tardini stadium because of the club's crippling financial problems.

Auxerre boss Guy Roux has revealed that Philippe Mexes is snubbing Manchester United in order to try and secure a move to Roma.

The promising centre back has been a long-standing target for Sir Alex Ferguson for many years but the Frenchman prefers a switch to Stadio Olimpico as he is concerned about his first team prospects at Old Trafford.

Presumably, Mexes was another option to Paris Saint Germain's Gabriel Heinze, who has agreed a five-year contract with Ferguson's men.
