As Three Lions fans continue to mourn England's embarrassingly early World Cup exit, Sunday's newspapers provide a welcome opportunity to forget all international woes and get excited about football again by delving into the transfer rumour mill, which continues to churn out speculation regarding the likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham.
If you believe most of what is written in the press then Louis van Gaal can't have had much time to focus on Holland's World Cup campaign in Brazil, given the huge number of prospective targets the new Red Devils boss has been credited with an interest in signing.
Today is no different, with a series of surprise names linked with a transfer to Old Trafford, while Arsene Wenger's alleged pursuit of a number of high profile names to lure to the Emirates also continues to attract attention.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers's search for reinforcements at Anfield looks like taking another twist as he aims to strengthen his first-team squad on Merseyside ahead of Liverpool's return to the Champions League in 2014/15.
And, despite already completing the marquee signing of Cesc Fabregas this summer, Jose Mourinho is believed to be monitoring additional targets tipped to join the ranks at Stamford Bridge, meaning there is no shortage of stories regarding Chelsea's transfer plans this window either.
Meanwhile, Mauricio Pochettino has been relatively quiet since succeeding Tim Sherwood at White Hart Lane, but the recently appointed Spurs manager is also being mooted as an admirer of some exciting players.
As ever, Spain's big two clubs Real Madrid and Barcelona are also never very far away when it comes to negotiations with some of the biggest names in world football.
