Kudos to the Star Sunday for the most outlandish back page of the lot.
Even though transfers hardly ever happen on a Sunday, you can always count on the UK tabloids to make up some outlandish gossip.
The Star Sunday is a split back page tomorrow with the suggestions that Arsenal have turned their attentions to Wayne Rooney and Spurs want Luis Suarez to replace Gareth Bale.
Both these rumours (Arsenal in for Rooney and Spurs chase Suarez) have been suggested before this summer but seem rather unlikely.
Would Wayne Rooney really join Arsenal? Can the Gunners pay his wages and would they offer the personal and team challenges he is reportedly keen to sign on for at Chelsea?
Luis Suarez meanwhile has said he wants to play Champions League football. And if Liverpool won’t sell to a Champions League spot rival in Arsenal, then why would they allow the Uruguayan head to Spurs?!
