MOYES WATCHES KROOS SHOW
After midfielder Toni Kroos effectively played as a whole midfield against Arsenal last night, those rumours of Manchester United going back in for the midfielder were always going to resurface, and it is the Daily Mail that show their hand first.

'Moyes in the stands to watch midfield masterclass from £50m United target' was their less than pithy headline, presumably because 'manager watches match' isn't quite as interesting.

Kroos has been holding out for an improvement on his contract at Bayern Munich, and after performances such as that it is clear why he hopes to get a cool £250,000 a week.

The relevant question regarding United's interest can probably be summed up in three words: why would he?


UNITED CLOSER TO CARVALHO

Potential midfielders for United truly are the order of the day, it appears, with the Daily Mirror claiming that they took a step closer to landing target William Carvalho from Sporting Lisbon.

Carvalho has played just 18 league games for Sporting and has an eye-watering release clause of £37.5million, but with the paper claiming that the Portuguese club have already sourced Carvalho's replacement, it seems likely that David Moyes is prepared to pay the big bucks.

With likely (reported) interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid, Moyes may need to move quickly to tie things up.


ARSENAL IN FOR UDINESE's SCUFFET

It really reads like a bad joke. After a night on which Arsenal were crying out for a world class replacement (or competition) for Olivier Giroud, the only transfer rumour of note is a story in the Metro linking them with a goalkeeper. Who is 17.

Udinese's Simone Scuffet is that man, who has recently managed to earn regular Serie A appearance, and with Lukasz Fabianski and Emiliano Viviano expected to leave at the end of the season, Arsene Wenger is said to be keen on the Italian.

Sorry Arsenal fans. We really are sorry.
