Right, three hours of sleep, so any mistakes are a result of that, but we'll struggle on regardless.

The Telegraph have a story that Manchester United are preparing a bid for Felipe Anderson. It's time to actually start buying people now, Edward, so get a move on. There's two weeks before pre-season training. You can read that here.

Elsewhere in the Telegraph, it seems that United are interested in Jasper Cillessen of Ajax, to replace the leaving David de Gea. I've barely seen him play, but he doesn't seem like a total clown, and has time to improve as he's relatively young. That's here. Lastly United are apparently lining up a bid for Sergio Ramos, which is written here, and will never, ever happen. Regarding De Gea, Edwin van der Sar has sounded off about him, pointing out - not unreasonably - that as good as he is, it's possible to replace him, That's in the Manchester Evening News.

Robin van Persie has been pretty open abut his desire to play regular football, but also seems quite happy in many respects to stay at a club he likes near a city he likes. He's said as much here, in the Mirror, and it would be slightly odd if Van Persie really is finished at such a young age.

The Daily Mail has a few stories in one article. Ilkay Gundogan and Nathaniel Clyne remain targets for United - with Dani Alves staying at Barcelona and Bastian Schweinsteiger not forcing any exit at the moment from Bayern Munich, that's no surprise. Both are better than what United have, but that's true of many players in Europe, which is an indication of how rotten the squad still is. But Woodward is on the ball, and is raising prices for corporate tickets. Eye on the ball, Edward.
