FOOTBALL: Inter deal for Giggs.
INTER Milan will step up their interest in Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs next week with a player-plus-cash offer for the Welsh international.
Inter are prepared to make a down payment of pounds 8million and offer Argentine striker Hernan Crespo to tempt United into a deal.
At the same time the Italians, who appear to be distancing themselves from a move for England captain David Beckham, will make a substantial offer for Arsenal winger Robert Pires.
The French international has yet to sign a new contract at Highbury with just 12 months remaining on his current contract.
Inter chief Hector Cuper is prepared to offer a range of players to tempt Arsenal into a deal. They include striker Christian Vieri and defender Fabio Cannavaro.
