TOP STORY: City, United join Chelsea chase for Stones

With sources telling ESPN FC on Wednesday that Chelsea have seen an improved bid of £26 million for John Stones rejected by Everton, the Mirror reports that Manchester City are ready to join the race for the 21-year-old centre-back.

Rooney can shoulder responsibility as Manchester United's lead striker

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal addresses the growing rumours of Angel Di Maria nearing a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The departures of Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao over the summer mean the goalscoring burden falls firmly on Wayne Rooney at Manchester United once more. Manager Louis van Gaal talked up the possibility of signing a "surprise" striker before the transfer window comes to a close, and while that may still come to fruition; United, at the time of writing, head into the season with Rooney as the primary frontman.

Should MLS's All-Star match go back to the East vs. West competition?

Kaka opened the scoring and assisted David Villa in the MLS All-Stars 2-1 victory over Tottenham, earning him MVP honours.

COMMERCE CITY, Colo. -- Earlier this week, in the days leading up to this year's MLS All-Star game, which the home team won 2-1 Wednesday night against English Premier League mainstay Tottenham Hotspur, much of the talk centered on the format of the league's annual midsummer classic.

Louis van Gaal and Manchester United are content but face more work

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal addresses the growing rumours of Angel Di Maria nearing a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Manchester United lost for the first time in the International Champions Cup against Paris Saint-Germain by a score of 0-2.

CHICAGO -- Sir Alex Ferguson stood talking to Laurent Blanc, like two old friends united for a brief moment. It was a scenario that happens often in football: Rival players and coaches snatch a handshake in a tunnel or before they get on a coach with peers they see frequently through the prism of the media, but seldom in person.

Ferguson caught up with Paris Saint-Germain manager Blanc, who played for Manchester United from 2001-03, after the French side had won a friendly between the two teams 2-0...
