The idea Arsenal and Manchester City would agree to exchange star men Alexis Sanchez and Sergio Aguero, as suggested by a couple of UK tabloids over the weekend, seemed utterly fanciful -- but it would be a deal that could work for all parties.

Admittedly, swap deals rarely happen and there have already been denials, but Sanchez's work ethic and versatility across the frontline could be ideal for Pep Guardiola. Aguero's deadly finishing skills are what Arsene Wenger has been missing...

Crystal Palace make classic mistake with Frank/Ronald de Boer mix-up

To herald the arrival of their new manager, Crystal Palace shared a video that featured a succession of stats pertaining to Frank de Boer's illustrious playing career.

Unfortunately, the aforementioned tweet -- which invited Palace fans to "get to know Frank de Boer a little better" -- was chock full of pictures of the Dutchman's twin brother, Ronald.

Crystal Palace gamble on Frank de Boer, but it's a risk worth taking

The FC crew believe Crystal Palace's somewhat unconventional choice of Frank de Boer as manager has potential to pay off.
Shaka Hislop feels Frank de Boer is capable of reinventing his managerial career with his new club, Crystal Palace.

Confirmation that Frank de Boer is the new manager at Crystal Palace has come not a moment too soon. The supporters were beginning to lose patience. An innocent tweet from the club's social media account on Wednesday, an apparently harmless picture of the training ground bathed in sunshine, brought an unexpected response. What followed was a cascade of tweets from fans begging for a new manager to be announced.

You can understand their anxiety. It has been an unsettling 18 months for Palace supporters...

Paul Pogba is the standout candidate to be Manchester United's next captain

Alejandro Moreno says the time has come for Paul Pogba to become a leader at Manchester United.

Wayne Rooney has been an accomplished captain for Manchester United, but given he seldom plays and seems destined to end his career away from Old Trafford, he's obviously no longer the right man for the job.

There's little room for sentiment in football, and United need to be looking forward with the right skipper. Captain duties are often bestowed on a senior player, a role Rooney qualified for when he was made captain by Louis van Gaal in 2014.

Of the side's other senior players, Michael Carrick...

Javier Ribalta, Juve's best-kept secret, is now Man Utd's not-so-secret weapon

Stevie Nicol feels Man United should do their best to sign Alvaro Morata, Jordi Alba and Fabinho to bolster their squad.

Last summer, Juventus sold the world's most expensive footballer and still went on to win a sixth Serie A title in a row and reach the Champions League final. Having paid around £800,000 in compensation for Paul Pogba in 2012, Juventus sold the midfielder back to Manchester United for £89.3 million. The money was reinvested, almost all of it shrewdly, and the Italian giants carried on winning as if nothing had changed.

It was a team effort but many of the plaudits went to a Spaniard...
