Bendtner is locked in talks with a host of clubs, as he is set to leave Arsenal this summer.

The 25-year-old Denmark international had looked close to a deal with Frankfurt but the German media has reported that a deal is looking increasingly unlikely.

Frankfurt chief Heribert Bruchhagen told Die Welt: "Chances are slim that Nicklas Bendtner will be joining us.

"He is simply in a different salary class and even if we would be able to pay those wages, he cannot deceive our key players.

"We would just able to afford a Nicklas Bendtner salary inside our wages budget. I would think it is definitely unrealistic to believe Arsenal FC could be out to heavily subsidize this deal."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
