There are two stories in the Mirror. The first is that Adnan Januzaj will be on loan at Dortmund for a season, but there's no intention of selling him. Although it has left the squad light on numbers, Januzaj desperately needed regular games, and the chance to get away from such a dull manager. You can read about that here.

Manchester United might also make a move for Pep Guardiola next summer, when he becomes available at Bayern Munich. There's been a lot of talk about Louis van Gaal's three-year contract, but he's not done anything to justify being kept around should one of the best managers in the world want to join the club. It also helps that his brother is an agent to many excellent players. That's here.

Ronald Koeman knows that Daley Blind will struggle against the strongest forwards, which is why you should expect him to be targeted by Graziano Pelle in the match against Southampton today. You can read the quotes in the Mail.

And in the Telegraph, there's a discussion about how Manchester United's boss will react to Luke Shaw's injury. Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo and Blind are all sensible options for him to consider. Anyway, that's it.
