Football rumours from the media

Manchester United's Juan Mata and Paul Pogba are the subject of transfer speculation.

What the papers say

Juan Mata is eager to return to Spain and head back to Valencia if he leaves Manchester United this summer, the Daily Mirror reports. The paper says a report in France indicates the Spaniard, whose contract is up at the end of the season, is waiting to see if Valencia get in touch before speaking to other clubs.

Manchester United have reportedly set their sights on Sampadoria defender Joachim Andersen. The Mirror says reports in Italy suggest United scouts were watching the 22-year-old at his club's defeat by Torino last weekend. Sampdoria chairman Massimo Ferrero is reportedly unwilling to listen to any offers below 30million euros (£26million).

Juventus are in constant contact with Paul Pogba's agent Mino Raiola over a return to the Italian giants, according to reports. The Sun says Italian outlet TuttoSport claims the Manchester United player is keen on the idea of returning to Turin.

Meanwhile, Liverpool's Alberto Moreno is said to have been linked with a return to Sevilla. The Sun says Spanish media reports suggest the Reds have contacted the LaLiga side over offloading the 26-year-old in January. Moreno's time at Anfield has been hit by injuries and he is now a distant second-choice behind left-back Andrew Robertson, the paper adds.

Scott Parker could be in line to take over at Fulham should Slavisa Jokanovic be unable to salvage the club's season, according to the Daily Mail. Jokanovic's job is not under immediate threat, but Parker, a former England midfielder, has been identified as a potential future manager by the Fulham hierarchy, the paper says.

Social media round-up

Players to watch

Leon Bailey: Manchester United and Chelsea are continuing to monitor the Bayer Leverkusen star, according to talkSPORT. The site claims the clubs are leading the English charge after his impressive form, despite the Bundesliga side insisting he will not be sold in January.

Shoya Nakajima: Southampton are reportedly preparing for a £15 million move for the Portimonense striker. TalkSPORT says reports in Portugal claim the Saints are firmly in the hunt for the 24-year-old forward, who has attracted attention across Europe.
