Adnan Januzaj: Has impressed with Manchester United

The 18-year-old midfielder scored twice on his full debut for United last week, and is one of the most talked about young players in Europe.

However, Januzaj's current deal expires at the end of the season and although talks are ongoing - he could in theory open talks with foreign clubs from January.

Juventus are one of those being linked with the player, and they know what it takes to land a United youngster having lured Paul Pogba to Turin last year in similar fashion - as he rejected the chance to sign a new deal at Old Trafford.

"If they fear another case like Pogba's then they are right," Juve's general manager is quoted by the Italian media.

"It's difficult to understand how we can reach a stage eight months prior to the contract expiring without seeing a renewal.

"Januzaj is a player showing big promise. He is a player of great quality."

In recent days Januzaj's agent Dirk De Vriese has confirmed talks are ongoing although the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer meant talks had been delayed.

"The departure of Sir Alex Ferguson meant that there was a break in the negotiations, but we are back working on the calls and will see how it goes," he said.

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.

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!
