In the Mirror, it seems that both Chelsea and Manchester United are interested in James Rodriguez. It's hard to tell what Jose Mourinho would make of the slight yet stodgy playmaker. It's hardly the midfielder he's renowned for liking, but he made good use of Luka Modric when at Real.

Anthony Martial is quoted on ESPNFC as saying that the speculation about Mourinho is not distracting him. It doesn't appear to be, given his continued goalscoring, but it might be cheering up the rest of the squad. Except maybe Juan Mata.

Manchester United are scouting AZ Alkmaar's Vincent Janssen. That's nice. You can read about that in the Daily Mail.

In the Manchester Evening News, there's some sickening, vile, terrifying news. Apparently Louis van Gaal might have been told that he's staying next season. If that happens, I'll close this and every Manchester United site down.

It never rains, but it pours effluence everywhere. Wayne Rooney could be back against Spurs, it says in the Telegraph.
