There is expected to be an announcement on Thursday but it looks increasingly likely that Rio Ferdinand will announce his retirement after being omitted from a warm-weather training camp in Dubai. The United squad fly out after Wednesday's clash with Arsenal but, according to The Sun, Ferdinand will not be in the party. He has started only seven Premier League games this season and is said to be ready to retire and pursue a media career.

We never really thought it would happen but any lingering ideas that Man United would 'do a Chelsea' and bring back an old unwanted midfielder have disappeared with the news that Paul Pogba is set to commit his future to Juventus. According to the Daily Mirror: 'Super-agent Mino Raiola is flying into Turin to negotiate a contract extension for the 20-year-old that would keep the Frenchman at the Serie A champions until 2018.'

We apologise at having to resort to TalkSPORT but needs must on a slow day for gossip. They claim: 'Manchester City will turn their attentions to France midfielder Blaise Matuidi following reports Fernando has penned a new deal at Porto.' Matuidi is out of contract at the end of the season and City will apparently tempt him with £5m a season to fend off interest from Chelsea and Barcelona.

QPR have already declared their interest but competition is expected.

I really hope Rio plays on - not because I think he can, just to spare the rest of us from his 'media career' for another year at least
