Heinze ..............................

Heinze tells Fergie: I still want to go
Contract rebel Gabriel Heinze last night upped the ante in his row with Manchester United by telling Sir Alex Ferguson to his face that he wants to move to Liverpool.
Defender Heinze returned to training with Untied as planned yesterday and headed straight for a meeting with manager Ferguson to thrash out his future.
And the Argentine international told Sportsmail last night he remains set on a controversial move to Anfield and that his lawyers are looking at ways to force the deal through, despite United's oppositions.
Heinze said: "I've spoken with the coach and I have insisted that my wish is to leave the club if a big offer appears on the table.
"Today, the only such offer is from Liverpool and it is this that is causing the problem. Earlier in the summer I received a promise from United that I could leave if the deal was good for both parties and at the moment there is an offer from Liverpool."

Meanwhile, The Sun quote Rio Ferdinand as saying he's more determined than ever to win the Barclays Premier League this season. Rio said: "You can't put into words how exciting [lifting the trophy last season] was. We'll be doing all we can to retain that title."

Cristiano Ronaldo is also determined to win the league again, but wants to go one better, according to The Daily Star. They quote the Portuguese winger as saying he's determined to win the Champions League as well.

The Sun also claim United have rejected a bid from Hull City to take Reserves striker Fraizer Campbell, 19, on loan, while The Daily Telegraph reckon Sir Alex has warned Roy Keane off a loan approach for stopper Tomasz Kuszczak.
