Instead it comes in the shape of Kenedy who is being linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich including other English clubs, as Sky Sports report.

Bayern, in their seventh straight Champions League quarter-final, enjoyed a low-key title celebration during the weekend after securing the Bundesliga title with five games to spare as they wanted to stay focused on securing the treble. The first one was great fun to watch and this should be no different.

Head coach Vincenzo Montella is under pressure following a 4-0 league defeat at Celta Vigo on Saturday.

However, left-back David Alaba and midfielder Arturo Vidal are injury doubts.

French striker Wissam Ben Yedder scored both goals in Sevilla's shock 2-1 win at Old Trafford last month after a goalless draw in Spain.

But Robben, who scored the victor in the 2013 final, is aware of what Sevilla are capable of having watched the Spanish outfit win 2-1 at Manchester United in the previous round.

The result, however, meant Sevilla, in the last eight of the European Cup for the first time since their only previous appearance at this stage 60 years ago, still managed to snap Heynckes' 12-game record winning run in the competition.

Robben warned that they needed to be "careful" not to underestimate La Liga opponents Sevilla.

Like so many players for Chelsea, Kenedy was bought in at a young age (19 from Fluminese in Brazil) with seemingly the only plan to keep him for a number of years, loan him out, and then sell at whatever profit they can get.

The big man in the middle.

James Rodriguez - so impressive from the Bayern bench in the first leg - grazed the top of the netting with a free-kick after Gabriel Mercado was a touch fortunate to see only yellow for hauling down Robert Lewandowski in the second minute. "It suits the Champions League because all the remaining sides play exceptional attacking football but offer up chances for the opposition".
