Victor Valdes could be a winter target for Chelsea, who have targeted the Manchester United goalkeeper after Thibaut Courtois' serious injury.

Angel Di Maria gave the ball away 31 times in his first full game for PSG, and has been described as a damp squib by France's media. He is, according to this story on ESPNFC, happy to put United spell behind him. It'll be interesting to see if the same is being said about his spell in Paris next year.

The Telegraph has chat that suggests that Anthony Martial's goal against Liverpool could be an Eric Cantona moment, something that sparks the side into something like cohesion and effectiveness. The answer is: how on Earth could anyone possibly know?

Louis van Gaal has said he will protect Martial, which is sensible. There's no point expecting too much from a young player in such a boring side. He will probably feature against PSV, though, given Wayne Rooney will still be injured. You can read about this in the Manchester Evening News.

In the Mirror, there's a rumour that Victor Valdes is wanted by Chelsea. Thibaut Courtois could be out for many months, and Asomir Begovic does not have the same experience. Valdes is not wanted by Van Gaal or United anymore, so a winter move would make sense for all parties.
