John Terry: Back in training but no definite return date

John Terry: Back in training but no definite return date

Terry is back in light training, and worked on Friday without a ball, but his recovery from knee surgery is proving complicated according to Benitez.

He was initially hopeful that his captain would return for Sunday's Premier League clash with Aston Villa, but those hopes are now out of the window and Benitez said Terry would need to come through harder training with no after-effects to come close to consideration.

"The knee is quite complicated," he said. "At least he's now on the pitch - that is positive news - but we cannot say, we cannot predict how long it will take.

"It's one step forward, one step back."

Further asked if Terry would make his comeback in the next fortnight, Benitez said: "I hope so but I am not a doctor. So I cannot guarantee anything."

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!
