Robinho: Now eyeing lengthy Milan stay

The tricky forward, who was 29 on Friday, was linked with a move back to Santos but appears to have dismissed reports about his future by reaffirming his commitment to the Rossoneri.

"I'm happy to be here for my 29th birthday," he told Milan Channel. "I'm happy here at Milan and I hope I'll be here for another five or six birthdays.

"The best present would be three points against Atalanta on Sunday. I hope that I'll play well against Atalanta. Winning that match would really be a great gift.

"I have more experience now than during my younger years but the mentality is the same."

Milan have also announced two new deals as they finally confirmed the club has acquired joint-ownership rights to Genoa duo Kevin Constant and Francesco Acerbi.

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!
