Park Chu-Young: Earned himself a call-up to the South Korea national side

Park has not featured for his country since February 2013 due to a lack of playing time at Arsenal, but head coach Hong Myung-Bo is keen to give the 28 year-old a fresh start since his loan move to Watford in January.

"It was a difficult decision. He hasn't played much but there's no harm in having another look at him," Hong told local reporters.

"I've decided on 80 percent of my final squad and will confirm the starting line-up in June."

Park will be joined by a strong contingent of European-based players including Bayer Leverkusen's Heung-Min Son, Augsburg's Ji Dong-won, Sunderland midfielder Ki Sung-yueng and Bolton's Lee Chung-yong.

The friendly will take place in Athens on March 5.

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!
