Hyypia is a big fans' favourite at Anfield after spending 10 successful years on Merseyside before moving to Germany in 2009.

The Finn took charge of Bayer on a caretaker basis before being appointed permanently in May 2012 and he has impressed during his short time in charge at the Bayer Arena.

And the 39-year-old has revealed it would be a dream come true to one day return to Liverpool as manager.

"I have two special places in my heart," Hyypia told Bild. "I was born in Finland. And there the national team coach is the biggest job.

"Liverpool has a different place in my heart.

"I will not say that it is a goal, but after the 10 years that I played there, it would be a dream someday to be Liverpool manager.

"But I live in the here and the now. And that is Bayer Leverkusen, and it is great fun."

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!
