UNITED TO KEEP 'CLOSE EYE' ON BALE
Yes of course it's probably guffery of the highest order, but we're only reporting what is there, chaps, and the Metro this morning claim that Manchester United are paying close attention to how Gareth Bale adapts to life in Madrid, with thoughts of a bid next year.
So having been blown out of the water by a world record bid in the summer, United will presumably saunter up to the Bernabeu and offer £20m less than Real paid, but crucially also inviting them to their next birthday party as part of the deal in the hope of persuading them to sell.
Let's just say it'd be a surprise, yes?
ARSENAL AND LIVERPOOL BATTLE FOR NAUGHTY GREEK
Before this season, you may have heard the name Kostas Miroglou in relation to this celebration, in which he pretended to shoot away fans with a gun. Well now he's firing in goals. I'm sorry. Really sorry.
14 goals in 14 games this season for Olympiakos, including three hat tricks) have grabbed the attention of a few clubs, with the Daily Star reckoning that Arsenal, Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund are three flirty admirers.
With a price tag at a reported £7million, surely someone will take a chance on such a goalscoring record?
LONDON CLUBS TRACK ANDERLECHT PAIR
You might have heard recently that the Belgians are enjoying wuite the time in the sun. Underrated, so much so that they're overrated. Then so overrated that they're underrated again. Or something like that.
Anyway, Premier League clubs seem rather keen on having a slice of that sweet pie, with the Daily Star reporting that Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs are all keeping tabs on Anderlecht duo Dennis Praet and Youri Tielemans.
With Milan, Inter and Juventus also said to be scouting the pair, it does rather raise the questions of whether they are allowed to be bought as individuals, or only available together like a pair of sibling kittens waiting to be homed.
AND THE REST
Feyenoord boss Ronald Koeman has admitted that Bruno Martins Indi, 21, may have to be sold amid speculation linking the defender with a move to the Premier League...
