Louis van Gaal, the Telegraph says, will play a strong team against Sheffield United in the FA Cup this weekend. Given he's lost out on the League Cup, and lost out on the Premier League, it is only this and the Europa League that he has a chance of winning. It's probably his last season at the club, after all.

On ESPNFC, Andy Mitten sees reason for optimism at Old Trafford. It's a less awful situation than it was, but United could conceivably get rid of Van Gaal if things go south again. The injury list has, at least, relented, though Nick Powell and Phil Jones are the most recent additions.

The Mirror's transfer round-up includes stories that United have a few possible targets, including Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard and Ilkay Gundogan. It's up to you to work out which rumours you believe are credible.

The excellent Ian Ladyman has an article in the Mail about Adnan Januzaj's future, where he correctly summarises the problems the player faces. He's got about six months, and maybe one more manager, before United decide to cut their losses, you'd imagine.

And in the Manchester Evening News, they think it's perfect timing for Januzaj to come back. Well, and stop me if you've heard this one before, he can't be any worse than Wayne Rooney.
