Manchester United: American investment firm Baron Capital have acquired nearly a quarter of Manchester United's shares listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Despite their problems on the pitch this season, United's share price has been slowly rising in recent weeks and Baron Capital's movement in the market could go some way to explain that increase.
Chelsea: Samuel Eto'o has no intention of hanging up his boots just yet and has hinted he may extend his stay at Chelsea beyond this season. Eto'o, who turned 33 this week, netted his ninth goal of the season in Chelsea's 4-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday and the striker is enjoying life at Stamford Bridge.
Newcastle United: Manager Alan Pardew has been hit with a seven-game suspension for his headbutt on Hull City midfielder David Meyler.

Juventus: Former full-back Fabio Grosso will take up the position of head coach of the Juventus' youth team, the club have confirmed. The 36-year-old ended his playing career with the Turin club, with whom he enjoyed a three-year spell between 2009 and 2012, and replaces Andrea Zanchetta.
Inter Milan: Edin Dzeko and Fernando Torres are unlikely to sign for Inter due to financial reasons, says club director Piero Ausilio.

Napoli: Dries Mertens could star for Belgium at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, according to Napoli team-mate Jose Callejon. The 26-year-old has been one of Napoli's stand-out players this season, with the attacker scoring six goals in 24 Serie A appearances.
Paris Saint Germain: Laurent Blanc insists that PSG are not UEFA Champions League favourites and feels his team are playing catch-up in Europe.

Yohan Cabaye has also said he has no regrets over his decision to join Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain from Newcastle United in January. The France international midfielder has started just one league game for Laurent Blanc's men since making the switch from St James' Park, but the 28-year-old insists he is relaxed about his situation.
