Steve Mandanda: Has no offers to consider at present

Reports have suggested that the highly-rated goalkeeper is among those Arsenal are keeping a close eye on, with Arsene Wenger expected to recruit in that area when the transfer window re-opens.

Mandanda is a proven performer at the highest level, with 250 appearances for Marseille to his name and 16 caps for France.

He remains under contract with his current employers until 2016, but that has done little to curb the rumours.

The 29-year-old is, however, adamant that no formal approach for his services has been made and that he remains committed to the Marseille cause.

Mandanda said: "I don't know what will happen next season, but it is likely that I will stay.

"I have not been approached by any club so far.

"When there is a World Cup, transfers are sorted out very late. Also, the goalkeeper market is quite narrow."

On the changes being made at Stade Velodrome, he added: "New coach Marcelo Biesla? He seems competent and ambitious.

"I have to know that he will rely on me. We have to talk. Whatever happens, I am at a great club."

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
