* Scholes on Jonny Evans:

"He's a fantastic player. He joined us for a pre-season tournament in South Africa last season and done really well and fitted in no problem. Obviously with him playing for Sunderland I haven't had the chance to see much of him but speaking to people there they have been saying how well he has played for them. It's great for Northern Ireland, there seems to be a lot of good young players coming through and hopefully they can qualify for the (European) championships next year."

* Henry seems to be touting himself for a move:

"That is great to hear (of Milan's interest). How can it be anything else? As I have said many times, at the moment I am an Arsenal player. But everyone knows that a lot of stuff has happened at the club recently that wasn't supposed to happen. In terms of the departure of Mr Dein, the bosses have been unsettled and a lot of players at the club have been unsettled. So the only thing I can tell you is right now I am an Arsenal player but I cannot deny it's nice to hear about Milan.

"I was devastated when Mr Dein left the club. I don't know what happened and I don't want to know. But whatever went on, Mr Dein leaving was not a clever move. Although no one is bigger than the club, Arsene Wenger and Mr Dein are really close to being Arsenal. They are the two people who come really close to saying that. Everybody who knows Mr Dein understands that the guy loves football.

* One time United target joins Bayern:


Franck Ribery has joined German club Bayern Munich on a four-year deal from Marseille. Bayern are reported to have paid an initial £17m for the 24-year-old - and have also unveiled Italian Luca Toni, who joins from Fiorentina for £7.4m.

* Keane talks of enjoying management:

"I was comparing a lot of being a manager to when I was a player.

"It's a million miles away. The difference is unbelievable, but maybe the more experience I get, the more I enjoy it. I don't think it will ever be as hectic as it was last season, especially in the months after I took the job.

"When I took the job, with the transfer deadline approaching and everything else, there was that much going on I didn't have time to take it in, never mind enjoy it.

"It was nice to reflect on the achievement of last season.

"I just like winning football matches, that's what motivates me. But I have quickly moved on from the success - I did it as a player. Getting promotion is history now.

"I think I have the balance right in terms of working and relaxing. I have been able to switch off - you have to do that as a manager."

* Viduka signs for Newcastle ending occasional rumours of a move to OT.

* The Daily Mail:

United chairman Kevin McCabe has asked , Tevez's closest adviser, to help with their bitter legal fight. McCabe believes Joorabchian can help provide the evidence they hope will keep them in the Premier League.

Joorabchian's legal advisers are discussing the possibility that he might appear in person — or at least give written evidence — at the Premier League's unprecedented arbitration panel, which sits on June 18 in London.

His appearance could have a devastating impact on the defence put forward from Upton Park.
