Dortmund wasted a string of chances in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final, with Gotze guilty of missing three excellent opportunities.

The Germany international was disappointed not to score, but feels Dortmund are still in a strong position ahead of next week's second leg at home.

"I could have helped the team out a great deal by scoring at least once," said Gotze. "It's a shame that I wasn't able to do that.

"We still have to be satisfied with the result and we still have a return leg."

Gotze's team-mate Ilkay Gundogan was pleased with Dortmund's performance and the fact Jurgen Klopp's side came away with a clean sheet.

The midfielder said: "We produced a good performance for an away match and created several decent chances.

"Mario had three or four and he usually puts at least one of those away. It wasn't meant to be but it was also important to keep a clean sheet."

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!
