Sir Alex Ferguson has called on Nani to keep up the form he showed in the 2-1 win over Reading in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday night. 

Nani scored the first and created the second in a man of the match display as Manchester United set up a quarter-final with either Chelsea of Middlesbrough.

Chelsea captain John Terry says he wants to see teammate Frank Lampard stay at Stamford Bridge. Lampard looks set to depart the Blues as his contract expires in the summer and no new deal has been agreed.

Arsene Wenger has the full backing of the Arsenal board according to Peter Hill-Wood. 

The Gunners chairman also feels the fallout to the defeat to Blackburn Rovers has been too hysterical.

PSG have reportedly joined the race for Tottenham star Gareth Bale.

The Welsh winger has been in sensational form of late and the big-spending Ligue 1 side will apparently join the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich in trying to land him.

Kolo Toure believes Roberto Mancini will have to win the FA Cup if he is to keep his job as Manchester City manager. 

The Citizens crashed out of the Champions League at the group stages and trail rivals United by 12 points in the Premier League, leaving the trophy they won in 2011 as the only realistic chance of silverware left this season.

Barcelona are getting the best out of Cesc Fabregas, according to AC Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini.

The Frenchman feels his former Arsenal teammate has been in the form of his life this season.
