In the Mail, there's a story running through Louis van Gaal's targets for a striker. With Radamel Falcao at Chelsea and Robin van Persie on his way to Fenerbahce, there's a need for United to get some attacking reinforcements. Van Gaal is apparently happy to go on tour with James Wilson, Memphis Depay, Angel Di Maria and Adnan Januzaj as options in attack, he is looking for a senior striker before the season kicks off.

Harry Kane is the preferred option, but United are not keen on dealing with Daniel Levy or Spurs, and will likely look elsewhere. Christian Benteke, available for a little over £30 million from Aston Villa, and the older Edinson Cavani at PSG look like the two most obvious candidates. You can read about that here.

In the Mirror, there's a rumour that Arsenal are interested in Jonny Evans. For United, that would excellent, allowing them to weaken the Arsenal defence at a stroke. You can read that story here.

ESPNFC have a couple of Real-related stories. The first is that United have bid a record £100 million for Gareth Bale - here's that blog. Keep an eye on this transfer, as there's much of the transfer window to go, with Bale's position in Real by no means settled. Further back on the pitch, Iker Casillas has been sold to Porto, making room for David de Gea to eventually join.
