  • Harry Maguire

The centre-back has been heavily linked with a move to England in the past couple of weeks and is rumoured to have agreed to the personal terms set by the Red Devils.

The 25-year-old is believed to have held 'secret talks' with Barcelona over the last few days amid suggestions that the World Cup victor could be heading for Spain. They claim that United will demand the Polish striker in exchange for Anthony Martial, who is being linked with a move away. The 28-year-old even missed the pre-season tour of America as he was carrying an injury. It remains to be seen whether PSG, who are willing to sell a number of their fringe players such as Goncalo Guedes, would be willing to invest £30 million in Rojo.

Boateng did not enjoy a good World Cup and age is against him.

Despite a strong World Cup performance that saw him score three goals in Russian Federation, the defender has been pushed further down the Barca depth chart with the arrival of Clement Lenglet.

Thibaut Courtois prepared to leave Chelsea FC for free
Chelsea are in the season curtain-raiser after the FA Cup win in Conte's final match as head coach. Los Blancos only value Courtois at £35million, in line with their wider stance on goalkeepers.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mirror say West Ham want Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater. It is reported the Spanish club are asking for £35m to meet his release clause.

The French midfielder's future continues to be the source of much speculation following reports of a bust-up with Jose Mourinho.

N'Golo Kante has been offered a new five-year deal that would make him the highest-paid player in Chelsea's history up to now, amid interest from Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

Shrewsbury have put a £1m valuation on Congolese defender Toto Nsiala after rejecting a bid for the 26-year-old from Ipswich.
