Cahill left Everton in the summer of 2012 for Major League Soccer side the New York Red Bulls and he claims he was wanted by Premier League teams in January this year.

He has again been linked with a short-term loan in the New Year in order to maintain his fitness ahead of Australia's participation at the World Cup.

The 33-year-old is anticipating approaches, but has yet to make a decision on whether to move when the transfer window reopens.

"In the last loan period, three or four clubs came in and one was really close to signing me," Cahill told The Sun.

"It was from the Premier League and it went all the way up to the wire. It was to stay fit.

"I'm definitely going to get a lot of shouts again now and there will always be people knocking at the door.

"But I have to assess where my body's going to be for the next World Cup for Australia and also my fitness leading in Brazil."

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!
