What The Papers Say - 24 May

The views on this page are taken from the local and national media and do not necessarily reflect the views of Everton.
 
Today's Daily Mail hints at an Everton departure with back-up goalkeeper Jan Mucha reportedly on the wanted list of Croatian outfit Dinamo Zagreb.
 
The former Slovakia international is out of contract at Goodison Park this summer and is also rumoured to be attracting interest from clubs in Belgium and Holland.
 
Elsewhere, the Liverpool Echo have produced their end of term report on Everton's campaign.
 
Blues reporter Greg O'Keeffe has picked out the 2-0 win over Manchester City in March as the game of the season and named Leighton Baines as his player of the season. The left-back also gets the goal of the season nod for his stunning January free-kick at Newcastle.
 
Baines also appears in the same paper saying Everton's players must look to the future now David Moyes has departed for Manchester United. Assistant boss Steve Round, meanwhile, discusses the Blues' improving record against the top Premier League sides. Watch an interview with Round here.
 
Various newspapers discuss the future of Roberto Martinez, with The Mirror claiming the Spaniard is top of Bill Kenwright's wishlist to replace the OId Trafford-bound Moyes.
 
The tabloid say the Everton chairman is seeking talks with the 39-year-old, while the Daily Star report Martinez will sit down with Wigan chairman Dave Whelan before making any decision on his future after he delayed an announcement on the subject yesterday.
 
The Daily Mail claim the Latics are 'fighting a losing battle' to hold on to their FA Cup-winning boss, but Whelan tells The Times he believes Martinez will stay.
 
Attention also turns to Saturday's Champions League final in many of today's papers, with Thomas Hitzlsperger giving his view on the all-German match-up between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
 
The Blues midfielder tells the Daily Express it's about time a team from his homeland got their hands on club football's biggest trophy and hopes it could be the start of 'something special' for his country's domestic game.  

Paul BatesDon't want Martinez, in relegation battles every year and finally taken Wigan down. Need a manager that has tasted success (not just the fa cup) and has a winning mentality, Vitor could be that man.

Richard ReadI sense we are about to lose Woods and possibly Steve Round. When it comes to the new manager some form of update would be nice.
