Manchester United are moving closer to a deal to bring Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata to Old Trafford, according to Darren Lewis and David McDonnell of the Daily Mirror.
And the Mirror article claims the Spain international will be just one part of David Moyes' rebuilding programme, which will also include moves for Bayern Munich defender Dante, Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye and Borussia Monchengladbach winger Patrick Herrmann.
Martin Samuel of the Daily Mail believes Chelsea are making a big mistake in allowing Mata to join their Premier League rivals.
However, United striker Rooney is being linked with a £25 million move to Real Madrid, as Mark Ogden of the Daily Telegraph reports.
Ogden claims the Bernabeu club will enter the chase for the England international in the summer after conceding defeat in the hope of landing Sergio Aguero from Manchester City.
Meanwhile, United have failed in their bid to overturn the red card shown to defender Nemanja Vidic in the defeat at Chelsea on Sunday, reports the Daily Express.
United have been told to match the £21 million Chelsea paid for Nemanja Matic if they want to land midfielder Nicolas Gaitan from Benfica, claims Ben Jefferson of the Daily Express.
