The 41-year-old is in the market to reinforce his squad for the second half of the season during which the Glasgow giants will aim to retain their Scottish Premier League title and progress beyond the Champions League last 16.

However, the Northern Irishman insists that he will not splash huge clash to bring in an expensive player as there is no need to do so.

"I wouldn't do that (bring in a marquee signing)," he is quoted as saying in the Daily Record.

"I don't think there's any need. We have to be prudent, that's worked for us over the past couple of years and we feel it's the right way to go.

"Left-sided is what we want, either a winger or a left-back, because we are short in that department. So we'll look to enhance that part of the squad if we can."

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!
