Iceman opens United door

Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen has opened the door for a possible summer transfer to Manchester United, despite his father claiming a deal was highly unlikely. The 29-year-old has struggled to make his mark at the Camp Nou this season, but Arnor Gudjohnsen believes his son will stay put with Barca. He commented: "He's very happy there. He wants to have another chance next season to prove himself even more." However, former Bolton Wanderers and Chelsea frontman, Gudjohnsen junior, has admitted that he would relish a return to England. He told The Daily Mail: "I joined Barcelona to be part of the club's triumphs, but it is not easy for me when you look at the club's forward line and see all the big names there. "Each minute has been a special test for me, but to sit on the bench is not the most desirable experience for a player. "If I leave then my idea would be to return to British football. A perfect choice for me will be a club that plays in the Champions League. "Obviously Manchester United fit that category."
