John Guidetti: Would be welcomed back at Feyenoord

Feyenoord technical director Martin van Geel says the "door is always open" for John Guidetti should he decide to leave Manchester City.

The highly-rated Sweden striker joined City as an 16-year-old in from IF Brommapojkarna 2008 but has made just one first-team appearance for the Premier League club.

It is unclear whether new City boss Manuel Pellegrini sees a future for Guidetti at the Etihad Stadium, though he is currently part of the first-team squad for their pre-season tour of South Africa.

The 21-year-old, who has also been linked with a move to Sunderland, has been sent out on three separate loan spells, including a season-long loan to Feyernoord in 2011/12.

He scored 20 goals in 23 appearances for the Eredivisie outfit to become an instant crowd favourite at the De Kuip Stadium.

Van Geel says the club would welcome him back with open arms should he be made available, though he stressed no deal was imminent.

"Guidetti is in our hearts and the door is always open for him," he told the AD newspaper. "If a godsend occurs, we would naturally increase our squad with him.

"But I would like to say clearly that no concrete efforts have been made to get him."

S

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!
