He provided a reading of 63 micrograms per 100 millilitres of breath - the legal limit in England is 35 micrograms.

Manchester United have told Monaco that they won't be looking to make Radamel Falcao's move to Old Trafford a permanent one, according to a report in French sports newspaper L'Equipe.

The report claims that Man Utd decided not to take the option of a €55-million move this summer after the striker's lacklustre display against Preston North End in the FA Cup.

Manager Louis Van Gaal replaced Falcao with Ashley Young when they were trailing 1-0 to the League One club and promptly the Red Devils came back to win the tie 1-3.

It's reported that the club's hierarchy were appalled by Falcao's inability to get the better of defenders two leagues below the top division.

Wycombe sub gets red card five seconds after coming on

Wycombe striker Matt McClure made one of the shortest professional appearances in the history of football after he was sent off just five seconds after coming on as a substitute.

McClure doesn't hold the record for the shortest appearance however, that rather unwanted accolade goes to Sheffield United's Keith Gillespie and Swansea’s Walter Boyd who were both sent off after 0 seconds in 2007 and 2000 respectively. Both were shown the red card after play had yet to be restarted for pushing or elbowing an opponent.

The fastest red card in a game is still held by Kevin Pressman - the Sheffield Wednesday 'keeper was sent off for handling outside the area after his side's new season was just 13 seconds old in 2000.

Dinorah Santana told Spanish radio station RAC1 they are unwilling to wait any longer for a new contract offer from the Catalans, with Alves' current deal set to expire in the summer.

The right back booted a water bottle in anger after being substituted during last month's Champions League win over Man City, and is unhappy in broader terms with the way he has been treated by the club's hierarchy.

“We’re close to signing with another club, the talks are advanced," Santana explained. “They’re making Dani look like the baddie in this movie. We’re tired of this situation now.”

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola is keen to continue his relationship with the club after insisting he is not waiting for any offers from elsewhere.

Guardiola took charge of the German powerhouses in June 2013 and has led them to success in the Bundesliga and in domestic and European cup competition.

His time has been dogged by speculation over swapping leagues, most notably to England and to names like Manchester City, with his current Bayern deal set to run out in 2016.

However, the former Barcelona boss told a press conference: "Of course I'll stay here. I haven't had a contract offer and I am not waiting for a contract offer from anyone else.

"I'm happy here at Bayern, my only idea right now is to stay and work for this club here.

"I can stay in this club five or six years even. This also depends on the players. I'm not the most important thing for the club."
