BB Round-up – Mourinho for Man Utd, Blues’ Euro place under threat, Spurs and Orient join forces

With Manchester United and Real Madrid possibly on course for a Champions League final meeting at Wemblet next month, current Madrid boss Jose Mourinho has said that he’ll be the man to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Man United. The Special One looks set for a return to the Premier League sooner rather than later, and Old Trafford could well be his destination.

Elsewhere in the morning’s newspapers, rumours are circulating that Harry Redknapp is ready to discard his error-prone Tottenahm goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, while off the pitch Spurs have joined forces with Leyton Orient to fight the Olympic Stadium decision. Finally Birmingham’s place in Europe may be under threat as their finances are investigated, as the other Blues, Chelsea, have upped their top ticket prices.
