The summer transfer window may be just a distant memory, but with the season well underway managers have started their preparations for January...

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has put Nani up for sale.

Sporting Lisbon are reluctant to buy the player at the end of the season, and United are hoping his fine form will attract suitors.

Another player on his way out of Old Trafford is Robin van Persie.

PREMIER LEAGUE clubs have spent an INCREDIBLE £115m in agent’s fees over the last two transfer windows - with Chelsea and Liverpool splashing out the most.

Steven Gerrard must be rested by Liverpool and his boss Brendan Rodgers knows it, claims Jamie Carragher.

The 34-year-old ex-England captain has come in for criticism over the past few weeks as Liverpool’s struggles have shown no signs of letting up.

Without Luis Suarez and the crocked Daniel Sturridge the Anfield club have looked a shadow of the side which came within a game of Premier League glory last campaign. Daily Mirror
