Inter Milan pursue one in a Milner

Frustrated with being a hexagonal face that doesn’t quite fit in Manuel Pellegrini’s first team plans at Manchester City, James Milner is very much ‘want away’.

Thus far the strong talk has been of the former Leeds man joining Liverpool in the summer, but the Daily Star claim that they’ll face competition from Serie A.

Apparently, Roberto Mancini has been playing with his scarf tassels in a most flirty manner in the hope of luring Milner to Inter Milan. How very interesting…

Louis van Gaal walking to Memphis?

Mancunian late-afternoon journal the Manchester Evening News report that Louis van Gaal and his coaching team were watching Memphis Delay this week.

The Dutch sensation starred in his country’s 2-0 victory over Spain on Tuesday night and the viewing Manchester United manager liked what he saw.

Van Gaal has been something of a mentor/father figure to Depay over the years and a deal with current club PSV Eindhoven has been mooted for months.

Sing a new song, Chicharito

According to the Daily Mirror, Stoke, West Ham and German club Wolfsburg are all like peas in a pod in their pursuit of Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez.

The cherubic 26-year-old is currently on loan to Real Madrid but has confessed that a lack of first team opportunities at the Bernabeu has left his confidence in tatters.

Thankfully there are a number of clubs who would be only too willing to pick up the pieces and treat Hernandez with the kind of love he’d given up on long ago.

But wait! There’s more…
