Manchester United and Tottenham are ready to try and hijack Chelsea’s bid to sign Bolton’s Gary Cahill, according to reports today.

Chelsea were expected to wrap-up the signing of Cahill this week after agreeing a £7m fee with Bolton. However, the deal has stalled over personal terms with Chelsea offering £70,000 a week while Cahill is asking for nearer £100,000.

Liverpool were thought to be considering entering the race earlier this week but now The Sun are reporting that Man Utd are also monitoring the situation. Sir Alex Ferguson has seen his defence decimated by injuries this term and the Scot is reported to be weighing up a late move for the England stopper.

However the Evening Standard have got a different take on things, suggesting Tottenham are also set to make a late move for Cahill. The North Londoners tried to snap up the 25-year-old in the summer but failed to agree a fee with Bolton but Harry Redknapp remains interested and is keen to add another centre back to his ranks.

Although it’s claimed that Spurs would only make their move if the Chelsea deals completely falls through, as they are un-willing to enter a bidding war with their London rivals.

    This is discraceful. Cahill is Chelsea property–almost–how dare other clubs even consider a bid. This is just like the Modric saga. After all the work Chelsea and the media invested in trying to wrench him away from Spurs, I now hear Man Utd will get him in the Summer—this is totally unethical and unprincipled. It is time the FA stepped in to stop this kind of unethical behaviour.

    what????
    if cheslea lingers about it, what is the problem for other clups to take cahill / modric??

    i am a chelsea supporter, i really want at least modric, but come on it is a free market!!!

    what do you propose, if a club puts its tabs on a player, other have to look elsewhere????
    fi chelsea do not agree with the player, let other clubs have a go!
    by the way, not that bad that chelsea wants to keep a lid on what they pay the players!!
