Robson had been expected to be on the sidelines for another couple of weeks following minor knee surgery last month, but the 34-year-old is poised to return to training in the next few days.

"Barry is knocking his pan in to get back for the Partick game," McInnes said. "He's working hard and he's probably a wee bit ahead of where we thought in terms of his physical state.

"He is back running again and looking strong and powerful. There's not been any setbacks since the operation and he has given himself every chance.

"At the moment I'm not going to count him in for Partick but I certainly won't rule him out.

"We'll have a better idea by the end of the week once he starts doing his twisting and turning and striking the ball.

"Hopefully he'll be back with the first team proper in the next few days and we'll see how he is. At the moment he has every chance."

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!
