The Australia international is wanted by a number of clubs after his strong performances for club and country over the past six months.

Postecoglou is aware of the heightened interest in the player, including claims of a visit from a QPR scout next Tuesday, but issued a hands-off warning to any club looking to sign him.

"He's got two years to go with us (on his contract) so it's as much our decision as anyone else's," he told Herald Sun.

"With every good performance he has at national level I guess his value goes up for ourselves and for anyone else that wants him.

"He's very much a very important part of what we're about and what we want to create."

Meanwhile, Postecoglou confirmed that Melbourne have been in talks with former Fulham and Inter Milan midfielder Giorgios Karagounis.

"We have spoken to him and he has shown an interest," he said.

"It's still a little bit of a long shot for us, but he is someone who would definitely improve our squad and help us achieve what we want to."

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!
