Thomas Sorensen: Hinted he could retire at the end of the season

Sorensen has found himself playing second fiddle to Asmir Begovic for the last couple of seasons and the arrival of England international Jack Butland has increased the competition for places at the Britannia Stadium.

The 37-year-old admits he has no plans to drop down the leagues just to play and will hang up his gloves unless he receives an attractive offer.

"I have set some requirements for next season." Sorensen told Tipsbladet.

"It should be something where I can see some opportunities and challenges, because I feel I have played enough matches in my career.

"Therefore, I will not join a Championship club just to get to play more matches."

"I will turn 38 years and would like my body to still be healthy after the career is over."

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!
