Last night we had the Romelu Lukaku news up, so let's have a look at the rest.

Matt Radcliffe joined in October from southampton in order prevent injuries. You may have noticed that if that were the case, and he succeeded, then there was still a way to go to prevent another 500 or so injuries. He's left the club, either voluntarily or not. That's here, in the Mirror.

In the Telegraph, they've translated a Marca story saying that Louis van Gaal wants Raphael Varane as any part of a David de Gea transfer, and also have included a story that De Gea won't join Real unless they sell Iker Casillas beforehand, given rumours of his ruthlessness when it comes to competition for places. Read that here.

In the Daily Mail, Roma are aiming to keep Radja Nainggolan away from both United and Liverpool. He's been hugely impressive this last season, carrying his good form into the international games for Belgium, and is precisely the kind of player United should be buying. Should. Here's the article.

Lothar Matthaus thinks that Bastian Schweinsteiger should leave Bayern Munich to rock up at Old Trafford. If he's available, and Morgan Schneiderlin also joins in the summer, that's an excellent couple of buys by United for the midfield. The quotes are in the Manchester Evening News, here. As is a report on Andreas Pereira's success at the U20 World Cup.
