If that all sounds like it's playing to the transfer rumours crowd, Ronaldo is at least concentrating on Real Madrid's forthcoming Champions League tie against United. The Sun quotes him saying: “There’s more pressure at Madrid than United. Everyone is totally focused on winning the club’s tenth European Cup. That creates a certain amount of anxiety, which can be felt at times.”
The Daily Star claims that David De Gea is the no.1 target on Barcelona's shortlist of top European goalkeepers they would like to sign.
Crystal Palace boss Ian Holloway says he powerless to prevent Wilfried Zaha from leaving Selhurst Park, with United touted as one of the 20-year-old attacker's many suitors. "After what he did against Stoke at Selhurst Park the vultures came in for him — what can I do about it?" he says in The Sun. "People should be talking about him. He can play anywhere he likes, he is that bloody good.”
