Wilf Zaha hasn't exactly started his Manchester United career flying, and there might be a man who wants to help him out.

The altruistic chap in question is Alan Pardew, who according to The Daily Mirror, wants to take Zaha on loan in January.

In fact, there's a queue of them, with Stoke and West Brom also keen, while even more altruistic is Roberto Martinez, who apparently wants Zaha on a permanent deal.

'Moyes has not given up on Zaha yet,' sagely reports the Mirror.

We should bloody hope not.

Here's a talking man. That man is Rene Meulensteen. And he's talking about Javier Hernandez.

"Chicharito Hernandez is a fantastic striker," the former United assistant told talkSPORT. "Wherever he pops up he will score goals.

"With Hernandez, having Robin van Persie in that position mean sometimes you will fall short. That's why it's so important that, at the right time, you mix up the combinations and that all these players feel like they contribute to the competitions that you play in.

"If Hernandez comes to an age where he thinks he wants regular football and he can get into another top team in the Premier League then I can see him considering it, but it's not easy leaving Manchester United."

Ilkay Gundogan is a wanted man, it seems. Wanted by some of the shiniest clubs in Europe.

One of those clubs - Real Madrid - were said to have a 'first refusal' agreement in place for the Borussia Dortmund midfielder, but the rest have been encouraged by the revelation that this is in fact tish and fipsy.

"There is no agreement between Gundogan and Real Madrid," his old man told Kicker magazine.

"We only stopped contract negotiations with Dortmund because we do not want to disturb him during his injury.

"Obviously, it is possible that he will extend his contract."

Arsenal and Manchester United are thought to be among the chasing pack.

The Daily Mirror reports that Brendan Rodgers is very keen indeed to beef up his Liverpool squad in January, but he might be frustrated by Liverpool's owners, who are apparently on something of an austerity kick.

Nevertheless, Rodgers wants a forward and a midfielder in January, according to the paper, and the Mirror has a name for us.

That name is Konstantinos Mitroglou, the Olympiakos striker, who could apparently be available for around £6million.
