Mango and yoghurt for breakfast, starting the day as I mean to go on: eating mango and yogurt. (This is a lie: please guess in the comments what I actually had for breakfast.)

Last week, Roberto Firmino was linked with a move to Manchester United, with Jose Elias saying the deal was done. Now, his agent has confirmed that he will be moving to England, but without confirming which club he'll join. Like all these transfers, it's a lot of speculation and waiting, what joy. Read this at Manchester Evening News.

Andy Cole has wibbled on, and so it's reported in the press, and so it is on here. He thinks United should bid for Sergio Aguero, which is a waste of time, said Karim Benzema is perfect for Manchester United, and doesn't think Harry Kane will be a definite success should he move to Old Trafford. That's all in the Daily Mail.

The Mirror has a story linking Axel Witsel with Manchester United, which is fun, bringing back as it does, memories of most of the last decade. Zenit St Petersburg would probably sell, what with the economic crisis in Russia, but Chelsea and Juventus could both be interested. Read it.

Petr Cech's coach has indicated that Cech will move from Chelsea to Arsenal, given his happiness in London, while he thinks United are interested in Hugo Lloris. Please, no. That's in the Telegraph, as is the story that Jesse Lingard is wanted by Newcastle United - it seems a loan is likeliest.
