"That's football, how quickly things move," Milner said of the transfer talk. "We've had a great season with Man City, won the title and had five or six days to enjoy it and then it is gone, forgotten about and I'm concentrating on the World Cup.
"Once the World Cup is done, you are trying to win the league again so unfortunately you don't have that long to enjoy things.
"But football moves quickly and at this moment in time the only thing is the World Cup.
"You don't get too many opportunities to play in a World Cup in your life.
"It is an amazing spectacle and everyone in the squad is really excited and looking forward to that."
