Former Manchester United winger Bebe has mentioned a potential move back to Old Trafford, while David de Gea has refused to deny the presence of a release clause in his new contract.

The Daily Mail carry quotes from Bebe, who says that a return to Manchester United would not be 'impossible'. That's entirely correct, though it almost certainly won't happen. Nevertheless, the player he is now is not the player he was when he joined United. He's strong, fast and with a pretty good shot on him, but more than that, he is far calmer and technically much better.

Northern Ireland drew 1-1 with Finland in the week as they continued their successful attempt at qualification for Euro 2016. In the match, Paddy McNair managed to rupture his liver, which sounds a) desperately painful and b) dangerous. Nevertheless, he's expected to need just a couple of weeks to recover, and is currently still in Finland. It's another injury blow for United's defence, with Marcos Rojo and Luke Shaw currently out of action.

The Telegraph have started to ask if Wayne Rooney should start for England anymore. Come on, Louis, if even broadsheet writers can see what a waste of a position he is now, can't you?

David de Gea has refused to deny that there's a release clause in his contract. The rumours seem correct, so unless Real Madrid act up again, we can expect to see his move completed before the Euros. The chances of Real messing about remain, however, pretty high. They might leave it 'til the end of the transfer window again just to show off. That's in the Guardian.
