Anderson, who joined United from Porto in the summer of 2007, has seen his future the subject of speculation after failing to hold down a regular place in Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

The Brazil international has started to recapture some of his best form this season after a difficult last 18 months at Old Trafford with his form and fitness.

The 24-year-old admits if he was ever to return to Portugal it would only be for Porto, but he insists United want to keep hold of him and that he has no plans to leave.

"In Portugal, I have only ever played for Porto and if one day I came back, I would play for them," Anderson told A Bola.

"But the return to Portuguese football is far from happening. United will not let me go and I will not put myself in that scenario."

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.

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!
