Morning Links: Radamel Falcao linked with cut-price United move

New, comments

Monaco may be forced into selling Radamel Falcao to Manchester United on the cheap as their finances crumble, and Memphis Depay never interested Liverpool's Brendan Rodgers, he claims.

We trudge over to The Guardian, like all lily-livered liberals do on Saturday morning. The first thing to remind yourself is that David Moyes wasn't a bad man, simply out of his depth and without the help he needed. At Real Sociedad, he is blossoming. Or doing quite well. The interview is here.

In The Telegraph, there's good and bad news for United. On the one hand, they still haven't ruled out the possibility of signing Radamel Falcao, but on the other, UEFA restrictions placed upon Monaco may have reduced his price significantly. For all the cheap jokes about Falcao, it isn't impossible that with a proper run of games over the Copa America, and with a decent pre-season, that he could improve his form to an acceptable level.

Brendan Rodgers, always amusing. In this article in The Mirror, he claims that Liverpool were never interested in Memphis Depay? Er, then why did you speak to him in last two weeks about a move, and why did you follow him in The Netherlands for at least a season? You can point and laugh here. Assuming United beat Palace today. Otherwise, worry. In other news, Louis van Gaal has given the players an extra day off to try and shake them out of their losing funk.

At ESPNFC, Miguel Delaney has ranked the best Premier League winning sides in history. As Manchester United have won half of them, they duly figure prominently. Also on the site is Scott Patterson, of Republik of Mancunia, discussing why dominating possession hasn't been much use for United.

And that's it. You can keep up with the Crystal Palace match with our match thread, up a few hours before the game starts this evening, and argue with each other heartily, and you can read our preview of the game here.

One last thing - Marouane Fellaini cried when David Moyes was sacked.
