Manchester United manager David Moyes has warned Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho that Wayne Rooney is not for sale.

The Scot admitted he had heard Mourinho’s quotes praising Rooney, but reiterated his stance that the England striker would not be leaving Old Trafford.

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson believes the Gunners would be a ‘massive force’ in European football if they signed Luis Suarez and Gonzalo Higuain.

Arsene Wenger has been linked with bids for both, and Merson believes signing the pair would almost guarantee Arsenal a trophy next season.

Manchester City have failed in their attempts to sign AS Roma star Marquinhos and will be forced to look elsewhere for defensive recruitments.

Manager Manuel Pellegrini was keen on the Brazilian, but his agent has confirmed he would not be leaving Rome this summer.

Tottenham Hotspur captain Michael Dawson is confident Spurs will go one better next season and qualify for the Champions League.

Andre Villas-Boas’ side fell agonisingly short for a second successive year, but Dawson was adamant they would go one better this year.

Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer would not follow the lead of manager Pep Guardiola and say Barcelona’s Thiago Alcantara was a target for the Bundesliga champions.

Guardiola openly admitted his desire to sign the Spain Under-21 international, but Sammer refused to be drawn on whether Bayern were on the verge of completing a deal.
