Robert Lewandowski: Has been linked with a move to Bayern Munich or Manchester U

Rummenigge concedes that the club may have to leave their business until a little later than usual due to incoming manager Josep Guardiola and his need to settle in Germany, but confirmed that Bayern would be making signings this summer.

Bayern are currently 17 points clear in the Bundesliga title race and have one foot in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals after beating Arsenal 3-1 at the Emirates. They beat Borussia Dortmund in midweek to reach the DFB Pokal semi-finals.

Chairman Rummenigge, who has been in his position since 2002, dropped a hint regarding the purchase of Polish striker Lewandoswki.

Asked about speculation linking Bayern with the striker, Rummenigge told tz newspaper."I have got to know that often one big signature gives more success than three small deals.

"Look at Manuel Neuer, Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben and Javi Martinez.

"All of them were expensive deals, but all of them helped us a lot in just one step."

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!
