Summer signing Marin has failed to make an impact since his arrival from Werder Bremen in July, with injuries frustrating his start to life in West London.

The 23-year-old has made just one appearance for the Blues, appearing as a 70th-minute substitute in their 6-0 Capital One Cup thrashing of Wolves.

The attacking midfielder did not feature in former manager Roberto Di Matteo's set-up, with the likes of midfield stars Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar already at his disposal.

But Benitez has hinted he will give the German a chance to play for the European champions.

Questioned if Marin was desperate for football, Benitez told the Fulham Chronicle: "I don't believe he's desperate. He was training really well.

"He's been injured a while, but I know him. He's a good player I know from Werder Bremen.

"Hopefully we can improve fitness for many players and create competition."

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!
