Welbeck tipped to lead England's line, United seek to secure flurry of talent and Di Matteo makes Chelsea job his for now
England will finally get their Euro 2012 campaign under way tonight with a difficult test against France.
Much of the talk has been surrounding who will lead the line for the Three Lions in the absence of Wayne Rooney.
After several reports suggesting Andy Carroll would take the target man role most pundits, including Michael Cox in the Guardian, insist that Danny Welbeck will start the game just in front of club colleague Ashley Young.
Staying with Manchester United, Sky Sports is reporting on a number of potential signings for Sir Alex Ferguson's side this summer.
Polish striker Robert Lewandowski has been linked to Old Trafford, while Karim Benzema has also revealed that United have been trying to secure him for the last three or four years.
Further to that, reports this morning claim that Crewe's 18-year-old striker Nick Powell will be heading a few miles down the road for around £6 million and speculation is rife that another young forward, Angelo Henriquez, will be joining United's ranks from Universidad de Chile.
Moreover, the Daily Mirror reports that Ferguson is closing in on Everton left-back Leighton Baines.
Baines scored 4 goals last season on his way to an impressive 32 fantasy football points.
According to the Mirror, the Toffees are reportedly tracking Wolves' Stephen Ward as a replacement should Baines leave.
Ward was one of only two players to play every minute of last season's Premier League campaign, picking up 11 fantasy football points on the way.
He's currently at Euro 2012 with the Republic of Ireland where he'll be looking to impress prospective clubs after Wolves were relegated last season.
Finally, the Telegraph reports that Roberto Di Matteo is set to be offered a one-year contract to remain as Chelsea manager after leading the club to FA Cup and Champions League glory.
Journalist Jason Burt suggests, however, that the brevity of the contract inevitably means that Roman Abramovich will seek to lure Pep Guardiola to Stamford Bridge next summer.
