Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle is resigned to selling defender Gary Cahill in the summer.
Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool have all been linked with the former Aston Villa centre-half, who joined the club in January 2008 for just £5m.
And his list of admirers would surely grow if he makes the cut for South Africa this summer.
“I have always said, regardless of what club I am at, that if there comes a time when any player outgrows the football club, I won’t be the person to stand in their way,” the Wanderers boss told the Bolton News.
“I said it to my Burnley lads when I was there – if there is something better for them out there, then they would go and blossom. That will be the same with Gary Cahill.
“I have got everything crossed that Gary gets to the World Cup because if he does he will be terrific, if he is allowed the opportunity.
“And if that means that he is elevated to a position where they are all going to clamour for him, then good luck for Gary Cahill.”
