Real 'convinced' they'll get Suarez, Gundogan available for £25million, Herrara staying put and so is Morata...
THE GLAZERS WANT AN EXPLANATION
Uh-oh, this doesn't sound good for Ed Woodward. According to the Mirror, the Glazers want answers after Manchester United failed to secure a marquee signing this summer.
'Sunday Mirror Sport understands that new vice-chairman Ed Woodward was expected to deliver at least one stellar name this summer - with Cristiano Ronaldo and Cesc Fabregas at the top of his hit-list,' writes Simon Mullock.
'Now the Florida-based Glazier family (sic (Ed - you could say they made a real mess of the window)) want an explanation as to why Woodward couldn't land any of the club's top targets - and also want answers about why the club's pursuit of players descended into farce.'
Apparently the owners are also hacked off that they had to fork out £4m more than Marouane Fellaini's expired release clause to sign the Belgian on deadline day.
There are reports on Sunday that United are still plotting an £80m bid for Ronaldo - a deal that has become an 'obsession' according to the Daily Mail - but it appears they have a few internal issues to iron out first.
The Mail add that 'a new attempt to bring back Ronaldo could happen in January or next summer'.
Our thoughts on the chances of a January move? Slim and none, and slim just left town. Well, he was on his way out of town when he was hit by a truck.
Don't worry, he's going to be fine.
ENGLAND PASSED UP PEP
Yes, you're right. This isn't transfer gossip. But look - England rejected Pep Guardiola. For Roy Hodgson. Oh, the horror!
'The Football Association turned down the chance to interview Pep Guardiola for the England manager's job last year, appointing Roy Hodgson instead having made a policy decision to hire an English manager,' writes Nick Harris in the Daily Mail.
'An FA insider insists former chairman David Bernstein was right to 'go English', not least because it would send the right message concerning home talent.
'Sources say Guardiola was interested in talking to the FA when Fabio Capello resigned in February last year and an intermediary contacted the governing body to let them know.'
Apparently Guardiola had already decided to leave Barcelona by the time the England job became available although he was unsure whether to take a sabbatical.
But the FA rejected him. They rejected Pep Guardiola. Sweet baby Jesus.
NEW DEAL FOR WENGER
According to the Mirror, Arsenal are planning to offer Arsene Wenger a new contract after he played a key role in the Gunners' £42.4m capture of Mesut Ozil.
Ozil has lavished praise on Wenger since his record-breaking move to the Emirates and the Arsenal board agree that he's still the right man to take the club forward.
'The Frenchman's deal expires at the end of this season and talks over a new contract were shelved while the Ozil signing was secured,' report the Mirror.
'Arsenal fan groups had released statements calling for 63-year-old Wenger's contract to be put on the back burner after the opening-day defeat against Aston Villa.
'But owner Stan Kroenke and chief executive Ivan Gazidis have taken the Ozil signing as further proof that Wenger deserves a new deal.'
The Sun add that Wenger will be given a £40m January transfer kitty as a sweetener.
CITY CHASE MANGALA
Quick line from the Star now, who claim Man City will make a £30m move for Eliaquim Mangala as soon as the transfer window opens in January.
Apparently City made a late bid to sign the France defender on Monday, but Porto rejected the offer because they didn't have time to find a replacement.
However, according to the Star, 'they left the door open for City to return in the new year'.
