If you ever wonder how hard it is to fill an entire newspaper, then we have the answer for you here. On election day, the Daily Mail is usually preoccupied with spreading hatred of foreigners, and all other intersections of minorities. It is a vile rag - and we all endorse Jeremy Corbyn (NB only I endorse him, I can't speak for anyone else). However, today it is treating us to news of what Jose Mourinho's hotel looks like. That's right, I said it was hard to fill a newspaper.

Alvaro Morata's agent has hinted at a move for the Real Madrid man, this time to Manchester United. United have run out of options, but let's please hope that one of the options is not Diego Costa, after what Geoffrey Kondogbia said about him. Similarly, rumours about John Terry would be similarly depressing.

There's a story in the Guardian - so it is probably wrong - that Morata could be the subject of a new, £60m bid from Manchester United. I've absolutely no idea if he's any good or not, but United need plenty more players than him over the next month or two.

There's two rumours for United, that United want Andrea Belotti and James Rodriguez. It's hard to see where Rodriguez fits in, but if enough supplementary talent is brought in, then he can clearly be an effective and dangerous talent.

In the Telegraph, there's a story that United are getting closer to the signature of Monaco's £50m defender/midfielder Fabinho. Could he be an improvement upon Marouane Fellaini? It's hard to see how anyone could be an improvement on the magical Belgian.

And lastly, in the age of Brexit, remember to vote. We cannot say who you should vote for, but do remember that Theresa May wants to enact despicable, racist policies.
