There are seemingly very few stars of world football that Manchester United are not looking at, if transfer gossip is to be believed.

The latest in a long line of players to be linked to the Old Trafford side is Felipe Anderson of Lazio.

Twenty-two-year-old Anderson, a Brazilian attacking midfielder, will be the subject of a £30m bid.

Charlie Austin is a wanted man, according to the London Evening Standard.

West Ham, Newcastle United and Southampton want the 25-year-old striker, as relegated QPR attempt to cash in on his Premier League goalscoring exploits.

The Daily Star reckon that Everton are lining up a move for Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski.

Liverpool could land themselves another Southampton ace, if their improved bid for defender Nathaniel Clyne goes down well with the Saints – so says The Mirror.

And on the managerial front, The Daily Mail says Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will pen a new £30m deal for four years at Stamford Bridge.
