Carles Puyol: Looks likely to stay at Barca

The Rossoneri have been linked with a move for Puyol after the Barca stalwart admitted he is a fan of the Serie A outfit, but Galliani says age is not his side.

"Carles is a good friend of Milan and we know how much he loves this club after Barca," he told Mundo Deportivo.

"But we have to say that our current plans do not include signing any older players, despite Puyol's ability, and will focus on youngsters."

However, Galliani did admit that Milan would jump at the chance to sign some of Barcelona's younger players should they become available, with rumours of a move for Cesc Fabregas and Alexis Sanchez in the pipeline.

"Barca have a number of young players that would interest us if they were to become available," Galliani added.

"We talk to them informally on occasion and Barca and Milan maintain an excellent relationship."

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!
