Vincent Kompany: Staying put at the Etihad

The inspirational Belgian defender has been linked with Spanish giants Barcelona, but Kompany is a firm fans' favourite and has five years left on his current deal.

And he has reaffirmed his commitment to the City cause as they will look to recapture the Premier League crown next season.

The 27-year-old told RMC: "I have no reason to go elsewhere.

"I am happy here, I have five years left and if you knew the plans for this team for the future. I consider that to be a real objective.

"We will win the Champions League one day. It is inevitable. The same question arose concerning the Premier League and we did it.

"With the investment being made in all areas of the club, that will surely come. When we see people like [Patrick] Vieira it's one of the things that can help us move forward. In Europe, we will be more competitive.

"Our season will also depend on the cup final. If we win, it'll be fine.

"It will not be easy. The Wembley pitch is huge and Wigan are a team who play good football with their Spanish coach. They play in an unusual system compared to the other teams of the Premier League.

"There is a risk but we were fully awake during the game we played against them recently. We will not be surprised."

He also ruled out any future move to Paris Saint Germain.

"Could I go to Paris Saint-Germain? No, I am a supporter of Marseille."

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.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

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!
