United were ready to smash their £30.75m transfer record in the summer to sign Lucas from Sao Paulo but he rejected their overtures.

Big-spending PSG stepped in and sealed a deal for the forward in the summer in a transfer worth around £38m.

Lucas will move to France in January when the Brazilian season is over - but the 20-year-old is unsure whether his decision will turn out to be the right one.

"Thiago Silva has told me a lot about the club and its facilities, and it will be nice to have him as my team-mate," Lucas said.

"However, I have to admit that I do have a bit of fear about how things will pan out. I don't know how well it will go.

"I am not thinking about money, but I am more concerned with whether my next destination will be the right one. PSG's ambition and the presence of the other Brazilians convinced me."

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!
