There's a column in the Mirror which suggests that Wayne Rooney might find himself more at home at Everton now. It's something that has been rumoured recently, and relations between the fans and the striker have improved to make such a thing possible, but the question of money is the obvious one.

In the Guardian, Louis van Gaal highlights the failings of Manchester United in their draw against Leicester. It's as if he hasn't work out that he is the root of the problems now. A necessary overhaul of the squad, an improved defence - where's the rest of it?

The Telegraph's transfer round-up leads with a story that Manchester United want teenage striker Breel Embolo from FC Basel, a player previously linked with Arsenal and now also linked with Barcelona. Is he better than Rooney? You assume so.

And lastly, the Manchester Evening News think that Cristiano Ronaldo is now likely to return to Manchester United at the end of the season.
