According to The Mirror, Manchester United are going to, ‘scrap it out,’ for Jonny Evans, who still hasn’t found his missing, ‘h.’ Arsenal are also interested, but there’s no reason to think that anyone in the world would want to join them. It has come to something when an average player like Evans is of use to either United or City, but it at least demonstrates the shortage of adequate centre-halves in football at the moment.

Manchester United think that Jose Mourinho could be on his way out at the end of the season after he has withdrawn from life at the club. He still lives in a hotel, his sordid little grief hole, and makes regular trips back to London to see his family. Given the story is from Matt Lawton, who is no expert on United, it’s worth taking with a pinch of salt, but it would be no surprise if Mourinho has decided to jack it in so he can move to Paris and join up with PSG, where there is more money, and France is far less awful country than England.

United have been strongly linked with PSG’s winger Lucas Moura. The 25-year-old Brazilian almost joined United in the summer of 2012, but he ended up in France. With Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, he is struggling for minutes and the club are struggling for income. He would offer width to a side that struggles to play naturally along the touchlines.

Some praise for Paul Pogba after his impressive display against Everton. Give him space and the chance to play higher up the pitch, and he’ll have no trouble with the doggerel that makes up most of the league.

And lastly, United face difficulty in getting Alex Sandro out of Juventus in this transfer window, and also will have competition from Chelsea for any move.
