Manchester United are monitoring Real Madrid and Uruguay midfielder Federico Valverde, 22.

Everton will make a renewed attempt to sign Juventus and France midfielder Adrien Rabiot, 25, this summer.

Marseille and Croatia centre-back Duje Caleta-Car, 24, says he turned down a move to Liverpool in January.

Paris St-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, whose contract with the French club runs out in summer 2022, says he is “happy” at the Ligue 1 side, but the 22-year-old France international added “it is about reflecting for the long term” when asked about his future.

Austria defender David Alaba, 28, wants Real Madrid to be his next club once he departs Bayern Munich at the end of the season and has started to learn Spanish – but a move to the Bernabeu depends on the future of Real’s Spain centre-back Sergio Ramos.

Alaba remains Real’s top target to replace 34-year-old Ramos, though RB Leipzig’s Bayern Munich-bound French defender Dayot Upamecano, 22, had been their preferred back-up option.

Manchester United were close to signing Upamecano for £1.9m in 2015, according to the player’s advisor.

United States winger Christian Pulisic, 22, and Morocco forward Hakim Ziyech, 27, have struggled for game time at Chelsea under new manager Thomas Tuchel and one of them may have to be sold in the summer.

Firing Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho would cost Tottenham about 40m euros (£34.8m).

RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann and Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers are possible replacements for Mourinho at Tottenham.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has previously tried to bring former Liverpool and Celtic boss Rodgers to the club and is likely to try again should Mourinho leave.

English winger Demarai Gray, 24, says he was never offered a new contract at Leicester before his move to Bayer Leverkusen in January.

After extending 19-year-old England forward Mason Greenwood’s contract, Manchester United are likely to prioritise signing a new centre-back or Borussia Dortmund’s Norway striker Erling Braut Haaland, 20, over a move for Dortmund’s English forward Jadon Sancho, 20.

Manchester United are prepared to offer 70m euros (£60m) to beat Real Madrid and Paris St-Germain to the signing of Sevilla’s 22-year-old French defender Jules Kounde.

Real Madrid have joined the race to sign Braga’s Portuguese centre-back David Carmo. Liverpool tried to sign the 21-year-old in January but talks broke down.

Arsenal are only likely to offer defender David Luiz, 33, a contract extension if the Brazil international agrees to a player-coach role and reduced playing time.

Newcastle are not trying to sign former England striker Daniel Sturridge on a free transfer despite reports. The 31-year-old is a free agent.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says no talks have taken place regarding his future at Old Trafford, with his contract expiring at the end of next season.

Everton director of football Marcel Brands is close to agreeing a new contract with the Goodison Park club.

Former Fleetwood Town manager Joey Barton has held talks with Bristol Rovers about becoming the League One club’s new manager.
