Cornelius was a £7.5million signing from FC Copenhagen last summer, but he has yet to start a Premier League game for Cardiff.

He has made 10 appearances in all competitions without scoring, but Solskjaer believes the 20-year-old can be a success in south Wales.

The Cardiff boss points to his own time as a striker at Manchester United as an example of how players need to be given the chance to settle in English football.

"Andreas had a tough time with injuries and there is always a transition period with the culture and tempo," Solskjaer is quoted in the Daily Star.

"I had a great first season at Man United, then I did my ankle and the whole second half I couldn't get up to the pace of the Premier League.

"So that's what we're doing now with Andreas. We're trying to get him going and working on his confidence.

"He's not had any luck in front of goal, so we'll work every day putting crosses in and getting him fit. He will make an impact at the club."

S

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!
