Each day we'll bring you the very latest tabloid rumors as the biggest clubs around splash the cash to bolster their rosters. True or not, they're always entertaining... Former Manchester United keeper Peter Schmeichel claims Jose Mourinho will never be manager at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer last night admitted he dreams of managing United. Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has threatened to quit Fulham at the end of the season if he is not given assurances that he remains the club's No 1. Striker Rickie Lambert insists he wants to finish his career at Southampton despite being linked with several Premier League rivals. Chelsea midfielder Florent Malouda has criticised the club for excluding him from the first-team squad. Defender Alex Pearce is set to snub West Brom and Sunderland and sign a new deal at Reading. West Brom are eyeing a summer move for 19-year-old Leeds full-back Sam Byram, who is also being tracked by Liverpool and Everton. Wolves are keen to sign Reading defender Kaspars Gorkss on loan for the rest of the season. Championship side Huddersfield are closing in on Coventry City's Mark Robins as their new boss. Gary Neville has warned Manchester United that Cristiano Ronaldo is a "monster" who "bullies" teams out of games. Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez claims he is not bitter towards the Stamford Bridge boo-boys. Brighton boss Gus Poyet is the shock name in the frame if West Ham do not renew Sam Allardyce's contract at the end of the season. Hull City boss Steve Bruce wants to sign Peterborough striker George Boyd on loan - but will have to pay a hefty 'rental' fee. Roberto Mancini will wield his axe as he looks to save his job and crumbling season. Rio Ferdinand fears the only way to stop Cristiano Ronaldo is to turn him into an emotional wreck. Manchester United's pursuit of striker Robert Lewandowski has suffered a double setback due to interest from Bayern Munich, and Borussia Dortmund's £25.5m price tag. Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham are on alert after 21-year-old Denmark midfielder Christian Eriksen rejected a new contract with Dutch champions Ajax. Gary Neville has warned Manchester United they cannot beat Real Madrid unless they tame the 'monster' that is Cristiano Ronaldo. Liverpool are considering a summer move for Malaga's 28-year-old Chilean playmaker Manuel Itarra, who could be available for £3m. Rio Ferdinand geared up for Manchester United's reunion with Cristiano Ronaldo here tomorrow by suggesting the club will smother him with love. Roman Abramovich's search for his 10th Chelsea manager in 10 years suffered a setback when Jurgen Klopp, one of Europe's best young coaches, pledged his future to Borussia Dortmund. Midfielder Stephen Ireland has been frozen out at Aston Villa and forced to train with the club's youth team. Roberto Mancini has vowed to make widespread changes for Manchester City's FA Cup fifth-round tie against Leeds United on Sunday as the rift between him and his squad widens. Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra are hopeful Cristiano Ronaldo will be overcome with emotion as they plot a way to thwart their formidable former team-mate. Manchester United must avoid the "nightmare scenario" of Cristiano Ronaldo going one-on-one against a former team-mate, the club's former captain Gary Neville said. The rift between Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini and his players is widening. Chelsea could step up their pursuit of Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao by using Belgium goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois as a bargaining tool in negotiations.
