Each day we'll bring you the very latest tabloid rumors as the biggest clubs around splash the cash to bolster their rosters. True or not, they're always entertaining... Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski could still sign for Manchester United this summer despite reports that the Poland striker is set for a switch to Bayern Munich.

West Ham's Frederic Piquionne is trying to earn a move to the MLS after going on trial with the Portland Timbers.
