    Robin and Rooney threat for City

    All the talk is of Robin van Persie going to Manchester City, but it is surely at Manchester United where he could prove most devastating. Imagine a forward partnership with Wayne Rooney: two No 10s, who could also operate as No 9s, constantly switching, alternating, dragging their markers out of position, always thinking, always posing questions. If Arsenal decide they have no option but to sell, this could be Manchester Unitedís best chance of matching Cityís firepower. Whether it is wise forArsenal to create a second rival that they cannot get close to is entirely another matter.

    Also in the papers, there's widespread coverage of Ryan Giggs' appointment as captain of Great Britain's Olympic football squad. The Mirror suggests Team GB stands for 'Team (of) Giggs Babes' with skipper Ryan set to "pass on his wisdom to Brit kids."

    As well as the Welshman being quoted - as he was on on Sunday afternoon - there are comments from his Old Trafford and Team GB colleague Tom Cleverley. In The Sun, Tom says: "Hopefully I will win many trophies with Manchester United but to have an Olympic gold on your mantelpiece is something to tell your grandkids about."
