Discussion about who could replace David Moyes if/when Manchester United decide to abandon this 'appoint a manager with no experience of managing a big club and no track record of winning silverware' experiment will become commonplace in the coming months and the Daily Star kick off proceedings with an exclusive claim that Carlo Ancelotti is one name in the frame.

They claim that Ancelotti 'is deemed a far safer appointment than Jurgen Klopp', who has in turn been linked with replacing the former Chelsea boss at Real Madrid. They also throw the name of Diego Simeone into the mix. Inevitably.

Don't panic, Manchester United fans, we don't mean Neil Lennon. No, we're talking about Aaron Lennon, who the Daily Express website are linking with a move to Old Trafford in the summer. Because what United desperately need is another winger with no end product.

And in a clear case of 2+2 transfer maths, the Express go on to claim that 'the perennial bench warmer Javier Hernandez is the player United will offer in an exchange deal to land Lennon'. Quite who's paying who in this highly unlikely deal remains unclear.

This is from the Daily Mirror website, who claim that 'Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers is lining up a summer swoop for Southampton defensive rock Dejan Lovren' after missing out on signing the Croat from Lyon last summer.

Lovren cost Southampton £8.5m and has enjoyed an impressive first season in the Premier League so we suspect that he will cost around £12m if Liverpool pursue their interest.

Manchester City are aiming to pull off a cut-price £15 million summer swoop for Barcelona defender Dani Alves...Chelsea are ready to swoop for Nottingham Forest keeper Karl Darlow...Mathieu Debuchy has again hinted he is ready to follow his France team-mate Yohan Cabaye out of Newcastle to Paris Saint-Germain...QPR defender Armand Traore is wanted by Italian sides Genoa and Atalanta...Brazil star Kaka could quit AC Milan for US Major League Soccer in the summer.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
