Pavel Pogrebnyak is reportedly close to being fired by Dynamo Moscow after getting himself embroiled in a hilariously idiotic social media cock-up.

The ex-Fulham and Reading striker dipped out of Dynamo's recent game against Aznhi through "illness" having failed to make the matchday squad for the Russian club's previous four matches.

I fully expect Andrei Arshavin to make a decision on his future today and it is expected that he will be returning to Russia with either Dynamo Moscow or CSKA Moscow being his expected destination.

With Andrei Arshavin being in the last year of his contract, he can walk away for nothing from the Emirates at the end of the current football season. However, reports have been circulating that Arsenal is willing to let the Russian international head back to Russia before that country's transfer window closes on Sept.

Transfers are very much on my mind, but it's tough as I have no idea what my budget is. I am going to hazard a guess that I have £10m before I have to launch into the "sell to buy" category. We already have Podolski to ease the pressure on Robin, so where is strengthening needed. I say a more creative advanced midfielder, and a defence stiffener.

Manchester United are lining up Wolfsburg's left-back Ricardo Rodriguez as a potential replacement for Patrice Evra, who looks increasingly likely to leave Old Trafford this summer, despite having signed a 12-month extension in May.

With Juventus looking to secure Evra's services in the next couple of weeks and with Alex Buttner gone to Dynamo Moscow,Luke Shaw could find himself as the only left-back in the squad come the start of the season and while the England international is a great prospect, Louis Van Gaal is thought to be keen to bring in another left-back to provide competition for the former Southampton man.

Alex Buttner was today unveiled as a Dynamo Moscow player as he became the third player after Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand to leave Old Trafford just over a month after the end of the season but, unlike the former two centre-backs, the Dutchman isn't going to be sorely missed at United.

Arrived a surprise signing from Vitesse Arnhem in the summer of 2012, Buttner never managed to establish himself in the starting XI and made just 13 Premier League appearances in his two seasons at the club making up slightly less than the 50% of his 28 appearances in all competitions for United.

Alex Buttner has claimed that Louis Van Gaal's arrival at Manchester United has convinced him it's time to bring his United career to an end and he'll leave Old Trafford in the summer, with Russian Premier League outfit Dynamo Moscow his most probable destination.

The Dutch left-back was a surprise signing from Vitesse Arnhem two years ago and failed to establish himself at United, playing just 28 times for the first team even though, bizarrely, he claimed he was named man of the match 14 times over his first two seasons at the club and with Patrice Evra extending his contract for another 12 months and Southampton's Luke Shaw firmly on Van Gaal's radar, Buttner's time at United is very much up.

There are plenty of people, not least within the governing bodies of football itself, who would have it that football and politics don't mix. This is, of course, bunkum, whether we like it or not. The game holds such influence over so many people that it sometimes seems impossible for politicians not to be able to link the two, from the relatively harmless, "You only win the World Cup under Labour" slogans of Harold Wilson's British government of the late 1960s to the altogether more sinister machinations of the state organisations and their leaders that ran clubs in Eastern Europe during the Cold War.
