Papers: Red rule

Giggs: We can rule for years
As a veteran of nine Premier League title triumphs with Manchester United, Ryan Giggs knows better than anyone what it takes to achieve sustained success. And as Giggs closes in this season on a 10th league title, the 34-year-old revealed his belief that Sir Alex Ferguson's current side can rule English football for years to come. "I don't see why this team can't dominate for the next few years," said Giggs yesterday while at United's Carrington training complex. "Everything is in place for that to happen. It just depends whether the younger players have the hunger and desire to keep on winning trophies, but I'm sure that's the case."

The Reds are within touching distance of their tenth Premier League title and could edge ever closer on Thursday evening if Chelsea fail to win at Everton. Former Red Phil Neville says the Toffees are desperate to end Everton’s big-gun hoodoo having not beaten one of the top four sides this season — and earn himself a pat on the back off his big brother Gary.

In other news, The Sun claims Sir Alex has already identified £40million of new talent to help sustain his stranglehold on the Premier League. Sporting Lisbon stars Miguel Veloso and Joao Moutinho are top of the shopping list. And the boss is reportedly also targeting Wigan aces Wilson Palacios and Luis Antonio Valencia.
