De Sciglio has definitely been ruled out of next Wednesday's tie at the San Siro after suffering a knee injury in training on Monday.

The young full-back will require surgery on the problem and reports in Italy claim De Sciglio could be sidelined for around two months.

Abate will face a race against time to be fit to tackle Celtic after picking up an adductor problem while on international duty with Italy.

Milan expect the defender to be out for between eight and 10 days, making him a huge doubt for the visit of the Scottish champions.

The double injury blow leaves Milan coach Massimiliano Allegri with a selection headache as Cristian Zaccardo is now his only fit senior full-back.

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!
