Papers: Morrison on the move

United talks with starlet un-Ravel

The Sun's Neil Custis reports that United look set to lose teenage prospect Ravel Morrison after contract talks broke down. It is suggested that the midfielder, who was a key part of last season's successful FA Youth Cup side, will be allowed to leave when his contract runs out.  "He is now ready to move on despite his unquestionable talent," writes Custis. Morrison came on as a subsitute in the Carling Cup games against Aldershot and Crystal Palace.

Most of the newspapers, including the Daily Mirror, carry quotes from Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini relaying his anger at the decision to uphold Vincent Kompany's four-game suspension following his sending off against United on Sunday.

The Mirror also suggest former Reds midfield star Paul Ince is in line for the managerial post at Bristol Rovers.

Ince's former team-mate David Beckham's son Romeo has broken his father's heart by opting to support Arsenal, according to Metro. Becks attended both the Manchester derby and Arsenal's win over Leeds recently.
