If it's transfer speculation you want, then there's plenty to go with your corn flakes this morning, although other breakfast cereals are available.
There's no sign of last week's ludicrous Ronaldo rumour, but there are other big names being linked with us - the People say we have already launched a bid for Cesc Fabregas with Luka Modric mentioned if that fails. The same article says that Roberto Mancini also wants Wesley Snijder and Ashley Young. Kudos to the sub-editor for the headline of "Smash and Grabu Dhabi" - do you see what they did there?
The Daily Star Sunday says we are after Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero, and the same paper's Scottish edition has Rangers player Greg Wylde praising our on-loan winger Vladimir Weiss for his contribution to their successful title tilt.
The Mail sums the season up in numbers and tells us something we already knew - that Joe Hart is England's number one, with a shot-saving percentage of 76% and other figures that put him ahead of the now 'retired' Ben Foster.
A trawl of that there t'interweb does not reveal much new under the sun, but final word goes to the Radio New Zealand web site which dubs the final day of the season "intriguing". It takes a lot to get excited in the land of the long white cloud...
