Published Add your comment

The summer transfer window may have closed a fortnight ago, but that hasn't stopped speculation from filling the national newspapers as domestic football returned after the international break.

As well as talk of players moving from one club to another, there is plenty in the way of new contracts for big players and pressure on managers to deliver for their clubs immediately.

That's where we begin our round-up, with Manchester United at the forefront of the headlines ahead of some big-name debuts against QPR on Sunday...

The Sunday Mirror

New Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is expected to win the Premier League title in his first season at the club.

A Champions League place was thought to be the initial target for the Dutchman, but the domestic crown is also wanted after a summer spending spree in excess of £100million.

Tottenham Hotspur will move again for Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin when the transfer window re-opens in January.

The French international midfielder played for Mauricio Pochettino when he was in charge of the Saints, and the Argentine manager wants to add the 24-year-old to his Spurs ranks at White Hart Lane.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has tipped midfielder Yaya Toure to sign a new contract at the Etihad Stadium.

Real Madrid have been linked with a move for the Ivorian, but his Belgian teammate believes he’ll follow in his footsteps and sign on with the Citizens.
