Giulianelli: EXCLUSIVE - Higuain chooses Manchester home; Roma want Chelsea's Serb for Radja; Man City fancy CR7

Even if some still write that Manchester United could decide to bet on Ryan Giggs as new head coach for next season, imitating the path of Guardiolism, I'll keep writing that José Mourinho will be on the Red Devils bench - and that's for certain.

And the centre-forward he wants with him is Gonzalo Higuain. The news is that the Argentinian seems to have chosen the home for him and his girlfriend - who has been recently (as I have written) in Manchester to take a look to some houses.

I urge all the sceptics about the transfer of Higuain - from Napoli to Manchester United - to read what Diego Armando Maradona has declared in these past days to local Italian television.


ROMA WANT IVANOVIC AS PART OF NAINGGOLAN DEAL

Hot line between Roma and Chelsea. While Antonio Conte is ready to raise his offer for Radja Nainggolan to €40 million, Roma are not so sure about selling the Belgian midfielder. But they could try to take the Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic from Chelsea.

The problems could be the passport of the non-EU player and the high wage: but the deal could be done on a loan basis.

Talking again about Roma and Belgium, in the bleachers of the Stadio Olimpico hasn't passed unnoticed the black curly hair of Marouane Fellaini, seated to watch Roma-Napoli last Monday. And the player was even in a disco in Rome with other Roma players. More than clues, these actions look like solid evidence regarding the Manchester United midfielder's intentions.


MAN CITY GET SERIOUS ABOUT CR7

Even if Paris Saint Germain seem to have a genuine intention of bringing Cristiano Ronaldo under the Eiffel Tower, pay attention to Manchester City...

If the Citizens are convinced that the chance of a possible sale by Real Madrid of the Portuguese could become concrete, they are ready to table a big contract offer.

Just to recap: it is not so certain that the Blancos will decide to sit at a table to discuss a transfer of their jewel; but if they do decide to do it, the wannabe buyer would not only be Paris Saint Germain (as expected since last summer) but even Manchester City could be interested.

And it wouldn't be a bad present for Pep Guardiola...
