Andrew Robertson: Wanted in England

Andrew Robertson: Wanted in England

The 20-year-old has emerged as one of the most in-demand players in Scotland, having only signed for United from amateur side Queen's Park last summer.

Robertson quickly established himself at Tannadice and even become a full Scotland international under Gordon Strachan.

West Ham have tried to broker a deal, with their second offer understood to have been £1.5million, but United, who have just sold Ryan Gauld to Sporting Lisbon, rejected their bids.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, United chairman Stephen Thompson refused to be drawn on the subject.

"I'm not going to comment on that," he said. "I prefer to comment when business is done. If they prefer to comment, that is fine, but I am saying no more at the moment."

Everton, West Brom, Sunderland and Newcastle have all been credited with an interest in Robertson in recent months.

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!
