Mourinho Eyes Premier League Return After Madrid: Soccer Roundup

The following is a roundup of soccer stories from U.K. newspapers with clickable Internet links.

Premier League Return

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho said he wants to return to the Premier League when he leaves the Spanish club, though doesn’t envisage taking over from Alex Ferguson, 71, as Manchester United manager, the Sun reported.

“After Real Madrid, I’d like to manage in England,” the Sun cited Mourinho as saying. “I don’t think I will succeed Sir Alex. I think we will finish our careers more or less at the same time. He will be 90 and I will be 70.”

Wanyama Scouted

Arsenal is scouting Celtic’s Victor Wanyama with a view to signing the holding midfielder in the offseason, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The Gunners have identified the Kenyan as a transfer priority and sent a scout to watch him last night in Celtic’s Champions League loss to Juventus, the newspaper said, adding that a striker and a right-back are the other priorities.

Mindless Signing

Queens Park Rangers “lost their minds” by paying Anzhi Makhachkala 12.5 million pounds ($19.6 million) for defender Chris Samba last month, the Independent cited a director of the Russian club as saying.

“At QPR he will earn almost as much as he did at Anzhi,” the newspaper cited Anzhi director German Tkachenko as saying. “In my view QPR have lost their minds. When they agreed to pay his release fee we wept. He wept.”

Lampard to L.A.?

Los Angeles Galaxy striker Robbie Keane wants the Major League Soccer team to sign Frank Lampard as a replacement for David Beckham, who left in December, the Daily Mail reported.

Keane said England midfielder Lampard, whose Chelsea contract is due to expire at the end of this season, is the type of “big-name player” the Galaxy needs, the newspaper added.
