The summer transfer window is reaching its crescendo with clubs throughout Europe looking to finalise their squads before the ever-approaching deadline.   

Premier League clubs have until 11pm on August 31 to get their deals over the line, with the future of Tottenham talisman Harry Kane set to be the major talking point until the window’s closure.   

The big bombshell so far has been Lionel Messi’s switch to PSG after leaving Barcelona, which will certainly have a drastic impact of the market. 

Manchester City have  

Of course, Manchester United have been lively, signing both Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, while rivals Manchester City broke the British transfer record with the £100million acquisition of Jack Grealish.   

Chelsea – who spent big last summer – have done so once again, bringing Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge for a whopping £98m.

It has been widely reported that Kounde’s switch to Stamford Bridge relies on the sale of Kurt Zouma, with the Blues defender appearing close to a £25m move across London to West Ham.

Jorge Mendes has flown to Turin for showdown talks with Juventus over Cristiano Ronaldo’s future at the club, according to reports.
