Zlatan could be seeing stars every day if he leaves Manchester United for LA Galaxy. It’s either stars or chocolate bars for the 36-year-old who is set to rejoin the first-team squad following injury.

Chelsea fans are breathing a sigh of relief with the club turning their attention to Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud. The Gunners want £35m for the 31-year-old.

Antonio Conte is hedging his bets though. Michy Batshuayi, 24, is welcome to stay at Chelsea if he wants, the Italian said after the Belgian scored twice against Newcastle United in a bid to impress suitors.

And that might be because the deal to bring Edin Dzeko, 31, to Stamford Bridge fell through. Roma are blaming his agent.

Joe Hart, 30, is finding life even more difficult away from the Etihad than he did with Manchester City. Fearing he will no longer be England’s Number One, he wants to leave West Ham this week for first-team football.

Not only is Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal, 30, pleased he’s got a pulse, he’s even happier to find out it means Manchester United are keen on signing him.

Things keep getting better for Jose Mourinho with long-term target Fabinho, 24, admitting he wants out of Monaco. The bad news is that Manchester City are interested although they might have been better off buying Monaco rather than paying out for the individual fees…

Newcastle United won’t take no for an answer and are set to return to Feyenoord with a final offer for 27-year-old striker Nicolai Jorgensen.

Sean Dyche rates him but Roy Hodgson is set to whisper sweet nothings in his ear. Crystal Palace want Ashley Barnes, 28, and Burnley are ready to do a deal for him.
