Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has revealed manager Brendan Rodgers tried to sign Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben 12 months ago. Robben is now being linked with Manchester United.

Carragher told the Daily Mail: "Brendan Rodgers tried to sign him for Liverpool before the 2013 Champions League final.

"He wasn't a regular for Bayern then but he scored the winner at Wembley against Borussia Dortmund and has since gone from strength to strength.

"Liverpool have not had a world class wide man since John Barnes."
