Rooney to Arsenal FC? Eto'o to Chelsea FC? Suarez to stay at Liverpool FC?

Wayne Rooney
The Sun: Jose Mourinho lit the fuse on the Premier League kick-off with a dig at his Manchester rivals.

Also: Luis Suarez made his grovelling apology to Liverpool yesterday and returned to first-team training.

Daily Mirror: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made a sensational new move for Wayne Rooney.

Also: Ashley Williams has responded to interest from Arsenal by admitting he DOES aspire to play in the Champions League.

Daily Star: Luis Suarez has finally apologised to Liverpool.

Daily Mail: Jose Mourinho exploded back on to the Premier League stage yesterday with a swipe at David Moyes before dismissing the quality of the last two Manchester title-winning teams.

Also: Chelsea are seriously considering a deal for Anzhi Makhachkala striker Samuel Eto'o.

Daily Express: Jose Mourinho announced his return to the Premier League in typical style last night by telling the Manchester clubs their recent league titles are worthless.

Also: Everton are considering a loan move for England midfielder Gareth Barry after he was told he could leave Manchester City.

Metro: Chelsea are ready to lodge a £25million bid for Porto striker Jackson Martinez as Jose Mourinho prepares to move on from Wayne Rooney.

Also: Manchester United have offered Nemanja Vidic a new contract at the club in order to ward off interest from AC Milan.
And: Samuel Eto’o is ready to take a small pay cut in order to join Chelsea this summer – but he will still demand at least £300,000-a-week, his agent has revealed.

Daily Telegraph: Jose Mourinho has marked his long-awaited return to the Premier League this weekend with the contentious claim that the past two champions, Manchester United and Manchester City, were significantly inferior to his old Chelsea team.

The Times: Wayne Rooney is in line to make his hotly anticipated return this evening in David Moyes's first competitive game in charge of Manchester United.
The Guardian: Jose Mourinho returns to the Premier League this weekend convinced Chelsea can regain the championship and stamp authority on a title race that, in his opinion, has lacked an outstanding team over the last few seasons.
The Independent: There is a tendency in Jose Mourinho to wrap up his most provocative statements with a compliment or a kind observation that confuses the target and then other times he just lobs them in like the proverbial hand grenade. It was to the latter category that yesterday's performance belonged. The last two titles, won by Manchester City last year and Manchester United in May? These were not, Mourinho said, the work of great teams.
