BBC sports editor David Bond has now claimed that an offer has finally been made for the Spaniard, believed to be in the region of £35m, which was processed through intermediaries acting on behalf of Manchester United.
The news arrives after widespread reports stated that United were already negotiating with Chelsea, and that a deal for the 25-year-old could well go through before the weekend.
