The Mirror have a story on how Alvaro Morata came to the decision to leave Real Madrid. Morata has cut short, or interrupted, his honeymoon to come back to Madrid, with the intention of forcing through a move to Old Trafford after there was a hold up in the negotiation over the fee. David de Gea could also provide another stumbling block.

There's a video on the Guardian, asking whether Cristiano Ronaldo is really on the verge of leaving Real Madrid. It seems unlikely now that a few days have passed, but he has a few weeks off now before deciding whether he really wants to agitate for a move away to United or Paris Saint-Germain.

Ryan Sessegnon had long been linked with a move to Manchester United, Liverpool, and other players. The exciting youngster, however, has decided to sign a new contract with Fulham, meaning that there's a good chance he won't actually move for at least five or so months.

Saul Niguez has been impressing, and the Atletico Madrid midfielder could be on the verge of a move to Barcelona. United, too, have been scouting him for what seems like years now, and there's a report in the Daily Mail about why foreigners are all awful. Wait, I mean, there is that in the Daily Mail, but there's also a more relevant article on how Niguez has progressed in his time at Atletico.

Gary Neville, the hotel magnate, thinks that United need to reserve Wayne Rooney's future. In one sense, they're lucky that Zlatan Ibrahimovic has left with an injury, because he has taken up a huge wedge of cash each week. At least Ibrahimovic's absence means that £250,000 a week doesn't have to be an obstacle to bringing in one of the more expensive targets on Jose Mourinho's list.
