Chelsea have endured an awful start to the defence of their Premier League title, and sit a lowly 16th in the table after 12 games.

Because of their slump, thoughts have reportedly started to turn to the transfer window, and today the Blues have been linked with a Manchester United player.

That is just one of the stories to have made the headlines, with Manchester City and Newcastle United among the other clubs to feature.
