Let's got on with the quiz.

The Telegraph has a story that Real Madrid will soon make their move for David de Gea. It's been obvious for a while, and the world will be grateful that this is getting wrapped up quickly. The only details left to be ironed out, it seems, are the size of the fee and whether or not the deal includes Karim Benzema. You can read about that here.

The Mirror believes that Nicolas Otamendi will soon be the subject of a bid from United, but Valencia, his current club, will make sure that the full release clause of £35 million is met. It seems a lot, but that's how much players cost these days, and it's not our money. So it doesn't matter. He's good, sign him. Read that here.

ESPNFC run through the remaining options for United at right-back after Dani Alves decided to stay at more than a club. If you like, read it. Nathaniel Clyne is the best option, it seems, but there's also Seamus Coleman and options of players abroad. Please, please, just no Antonio Valencia.

The Express have quotes from Bayern Munich, saying they will only consider selling Bastian Schweinsteiger should he put in a transfer request, which you'd imagine is to do with any contractual loyalty bonus he may be paid otherwise. That's here, should you want to verify what I've just said.

The Daily Mail links Manchester United with a move for Internacional midfielder Rodrigo Dourado. I've never heard of him before, but let's hope he's better than his colleague, ex-Manchester United midfielder Anderson. That's here, and there's a video of him running about below. Dourado, that is, not Anderson.
