ASHLEY YOUNG FIRST OUT OLD TRAFFORD DRAW
We're not sure we would wish him on anyone at the moment, but with David Moyes understandably prepared to allow Ashley Young to leave Manchester United on an ASAP basis, the Mail on Sunday report that former club Aston Villa may come in for their man.

Newcastle and Everton are also mentioned as possible destinations for Young, whilst a fee of £8million is mooted.

Thereafter, the paper start discussing the winger's World Cup chances, which made us feel a little bit queasy.


CLUBS TO FIGHT OVER BARKLEY
He's the new English bright young thing, so it comes as no surprise that the future of Ross Barkley is being widely discussed in the country's gossip columns.

The Daily Star go big on the story this morning, claiming that both Manchester City and United will look to tempt the midfielder from Goodison. A deal is likely to have to wait until January, with Everton hoping to agree a contract extension for Barkley so that they command an augmented fee.

One interesting aside offered is that United could offer Tom Cleverley on loan as part of any deal


BIG CLUBS? NICE TO MICHU
There was widespread surprise that none of the Premier League's bigger names made a move for Swansea's Michu over the summer, especially given the Spaniard's instant impact on the division, but it now appears that the player himself may be fluttering eyelashes at at the bold and beautiful.

The Sunday Express use quotes from Michu that do indeed to be rather flirty: "Every player dreams of playing for very big teams in the Champions League. I am no different."

Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus are all mentioned as possible destinations.


AND THE REST
Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are all in pursuit of Schalke star Julian Draxler... Manchester United boss David Moyes is preparing to start spending in January, with moves for Paris Saint-Germain's Blaise Matuidi and Roma's Dutch star Kevin Strootman... Inter Milan have held talks with Chelsea about Jose Mourinho's interest in attacking midfielder Fredy Guarin... Manchester United are on the trail of AC Milan defender Cristian Zapata... Ajax are trying to sign Thomas Ince - who could move to Holland, only entitling Blackpool to minor compensation...

Newcastle are leading the chase for Fulham's Dimitar Berbatov... Fulham's 16-year-old starlet Patrick Roberts is set to reject a number of clubs including Manchester United, and sign his first pro deal at Fulham... Blackburn Rovers are set to hand a new deal to striker Jordan Rhodes, which could take him to £50,000-a-week... Sunderland are considering a move for former England left-back Wayne Bridge... Manchester City defender Aleksander Kolarov, 28, could be heading back to Italy with Inter Milan...

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
