David de Gea hasn't made half the mistakes he had at this stage last season but Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to belatedly ditch the Spanish goalkeeper.
So say the Mirror anyway, who claim Asmir Begovic and Pepe Reina have both been targeted as long-term replacements.
This talk has gathered momentum in the last fortnight and United have enquired about Stoke stopper Begovic's availability.
Reina though is a remote prospect and has become quite the liability at Anfield over the last 18 months. Phil Chisnall is the last player to transfer between Liverpool and United, way back in 1964.
Across the city, Edinson Cavani - named after Thomas Edison but with an extra 'n' - is a £45m target for City, the Mail allege.
Mancini, not content with making Sergio Agüero, Mario Balotelli, Edin Džeko and Carlos Tévez feel unwanted with his weekly lamentations about Robin van Persie not joining City, could have a new object of distraction.
Frank Lampard scored again at the weekend but is still not going to be offered a new Chelsea contract, the Sun confirm.
Like Didier Drogba last year, he is another casualty of the player power clan which has lurked at Stamford Bridge for over seven years now. Ashley Cole will join him in the summer and John Terry, whose contract is up next year, will likely follow.
David Beckham was seen celebrating Manchester United's opener at West Ham on Saturday but a move to the Hammers could be on. Sam Allardyce has refused to rule out the possibility of the Leytonstone-born midfielder plying his trade in the east end, say the Mirror.
L'Équipe say QPR have made an £6.5m offer to side Rennes for French international midfielder and (one-time?) Arsenal target Yann M'Vila.
Because Harry Redknapp is the Rs' manager, you can expect to hear a lot about them in columns such as this, and the Express report they are also in talks withMarseille over a possible £11m deal for 26-year-old striker Loïc Rémy.
"Not Redknapp again"
We know Redknapp likes Rémy, because he told us last year.
Et zut alors! Marseille want to keep Joey Barton beyond this season, according to Metro. Nietzsche must go down well on the southeast coast of France.
