It’s Halloween and you wanna know something truly terrifying?
We’re already only two months away from the transfer window creaking opening once again, with all its ghoulish madness.
Here’s some of the #goss that has risen from the depths this week…
Man Utd Scouts Head to Italy for ‘Generational Talent’
The Sun boast an exclusive that Man Utd sent scouts to watch Brescia’s teenage sensation Sandro Tonali (pictured above practising for the ski jump) in the goalless draw with Fiorentina a couple of weeks back.
Despite the lack of goals on show, the travelling scouts to Lombardy were supposedly impressed by the 19-year-old, who is one part Andrea Pirlo two parts Gennaro Gattuso.
The Sun’s ‘source’ said: “We have known about Tonali for 18 months but our Italian scouts say he has gone to the next level and United need to get involved – he could be a generational talent.”
United will face fierce competition with just about every major European club also keeping track of Tonali’s progress.

Newcastle Close to Deal for Sissoko (No, Not That One)
They also claim that Newcastle plan is to have the 22-year-old ‘on board for the start of the window’. Make of that what you will.
Leicester, Watford & Boro in for Non-League Sensation
Ronald Sobowale, whose cousin is David Alaba (he actually is to be fair), is being ‘tracked’ by Leicester City and Watford among many others, according to the Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old is a forward, who was on Chelsea’s books alongside Tammy Abraham before being released at the age of 15.
He is currently banging in the goals for Whyteleafe in the Bet Victor South East League (the eighth tier of English football).
Could he be the next Jamie Vardy you ask? Well, how many Red Bulls does he drink a day and is his wife a grass? These are the important questions Middlesbrough, who have taken him on trial, are surely asking.
