Papers: It's United's title

Keane: Yule win it, Fergie


United legend Roy Keane tipped his old club to hang on to their Premier League crown after Arsenal were held 0-0 at Portsmouth. Cristiano Ronaldo and Co went a point clear at the top following a scintillating 4-0 destruction of Keane’s Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. Keane said: “My money’s still on United. I thought that two months ago and my opinion hasn’t changed. They are just a lethal attacking team. And they are equally good at the back. Ferdinand and Vidic — they are not bad are they? It takes a combination like that to win the league. Any team like that will get stronger. If United are there or thereabouts they have a chance."

The Sun
suggests Dong Fangzhuo and Wes Brown are heading out of Old Trafford, and speculates that Rangers right-back Alan Hutton will join the Reds for £6milllion.

In other news, Bryan Robson is raiding his old club to sign defender Phil Bardsley. The full-back has been on loan at Sheffield United since October and Robson will pay United £1.5m to make the move permanent.

Another youngster making the news is 20-year-old midfielder Darron Gibson, who has extended his loan spell at Wolves for the rest of the season.
