Rivals Manchester City and Manchester United are facing another transfer tug-of-war over Newcastle hot-shot Papiss Cisse.
After missing out on Eden Hazard, who decided to join Chelsea, the city rivals have turned their attention to Cisse.
The Newcastle striker has been named Senegal captain and has won the African Golden Boot.

Sir Alex Ferguson may well feel the need to refresh his attacking options and with Michael Owen out of the picture and the very real possibility that Dimitar Berbatov will also make an Old Trafford exit, a move for a new striker would make sense but could Man United really persuade the Magpies to sell a player who only arrived six months ago?
One would have thought that Demba Ba, who this source confirms is a wanted man and has a £7m release clause, is more likely to be on his way and the chance that Alan Pardew would lose both his Senegal international hit-men will come as grim reading to Newcastle United fans.
Following his £10m arrival from Freiburg the 26 year old netted an astonishing 13 goals in 13 Premier League starts which helped Newcastle United seal a top five finish.
