Yaya Toure wants to finish his career in England, the 33-year-old Manchester City midfielder has turned down a huge £430,000-a-week offer to go to the Chinese Super League.

Manchester United youngster Sean Goss is set to have a medical at Queens Park Rangers. The left-footed midfielder, who was touted to be the next Michael Carrick, was part of the pre-season squad under Louis van Gaal last season.

Ashley Young seems to be third Manchester United player who might be leaving through the back door. The former Watford and Aston Villa man ahs hardly had any game time under Jose Mourinho this season, and a host of Premier League clubs are ready to take the wide-man on loan.
