Jerome Rothen: Looking for a move away from Bastia

Rothen, who won 13 caps for France between 2003 and 2007, is upset at being overlooked for the captaincy in favour of Yannick Cahuzac for the first half of last season.

"(Hantz) decided to challenge my leadership," Rothen told L'Equipe.

"Last year, there were two captains, Cahuzac first and me second.

"Get me out of that, it's not fair."

Cahuzac's season was ended by a broken upper arm in January.

"An arrangement needs to be found," Rothen continued.

"I am in contact with the president (Pierre-Marie Geronimi), with whom I have a good relationship. He also wants everything to work out well.

"I have had contact with Nantes and Reims, but I am thinking about things. I must not delude myself, it will be a Ligue 1 club playing for survival or a Ligue 2 club who are trying to win promotion."

Lorient and Ligue 2 team Auxerre are also among the clubs to have been linked with a move for the 35-year-old.

Nantes are subject to a transfer ban for this summer and the January window over the signing of striker Ismael Bangoura.

The club have appealed to the Swiss court and as a result have until June 28, when the verdict is expected to be known, to sign players - though as that is outside the transfer window, only free-agent players could be registered.

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...

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.
