Kiko Casilla: Happy where he is

The 27-year-old goalkeeper is a regular for Los Periquitos, and his fine form has attracted interest from the Premier League duo as well as the likes of Barcelona in Spain.

However, Casilla has no interest in a move away from the Catalan club, revealing he feels he owes his employers for standing by him.

"My intention is to stay here," Casilla told El Mundo Deportivo.

"This club gave me so much when things were going badly, and I always had a helping hand when I needed them.

"Now I am happy here, enjoying myself and playing. This is where I belong."

Casilla has another year left on his current deal, but is not concerned that another may not be forthcoming.

"Obviously I want to stay," Casilla added.

"I am staying here at least one more year so it is not alarming to me."

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!
