Papers: Saha Roma-bound?

Roma primed to strike loan deal
Roma are ready to take United striker Louis Saha on loan with a view to a £7m move to Serie A. The Italians want to be sure of Saha's fitness before sanctioning a permanent deal for the injury-plagued France striker whose Old Trafford career has ground to a halt following a series of injuries. Ironically they are also looking at United target Luis Fabiano who is expected to leave Sevilla this summer. Sir Alex Ferguson had the Brazilian watched last season, but Fabiano's agent Jose Fuentes has hinted that he may prefer a move to Rome where fellow countrymen Alexandre Doni, Rodrigo Taddei and Cicinho all play for last season's Serie A runners-up.

United are also being linked with Schalke midfielder Jermaine Jones, according to the Mail. Jones, 26, was one of the key members of the Schalke side which reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season, but was cut from Germany's final squad for Euro 2008.

Meanwhile, The Sun claim the Glazer family have insisted that Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale at any price. The Daily Express reckons Real Madrid are ready to bankroll Ronaldo should he stay away from Old Trafford when the players report back for training next month.

In other news, the Mail reports that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to manage at the highest level one day, maybe at Old Trafford. "I have ambitions to go into management. I want to stay in the game and I want to stay at this club," he said.
