RONALDO SITUATION

Cristiano Ronaldo left Juventus training today with an arm injury and will be assessed ahead of their game against Empoli on Saturday.

Juventus expect Ronaldo to stay at the club despite him being open to leaving the club this summer.

His current contract at the Allianz Stadium runs until June 2022 and he is earning €31m per year after tax.

However, no club has made an offer for him and he has not officially told Juventus he wants to leave.

Any club wanting to sign Ronaldo would have to buy out his Juventus contract, which would cost between €25m and €30m.

CITY DEAL OFF

Harry Kane is STAYING at Tottenham this summer, the striker has confirmed.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with a transfer bid for the £150million-rated forward, but he has committed to Spurs in a tweet sent out on Wednesday.

He wrote: “It was incredible to see the reception from the Spurs fans on Sunday and to read some of the messages of support I’ve had in the last few weeks. 👏⚽

“I will be staying at Tottenham this summer and will be 100% focused on helping the team achieve success #COYS.”

Kane, 28, told Spurs of his desire to leave the club earlier in the year, having gone seven years as a star of the team without a trophy to his name.

ALL IN FOR KYL

Real Madrid could launch a second transfer bid for Kylian Mbappe for a world-record fee.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward, 22, is into the final year of his contract and allegedly told the club hierarchy he wants to leave.

Los Blancos caused a major shock on Tuesday when they submitted an offer of £137million to Paris Saint-Germain for the Frenchman.

It is understood the Ligue 1 side immediately rejected the opening bid.

But according to L’Equipe, PSG were stunned by the price Real offered up front.

And the same newspaper report the Bernabeu club are preparing another package to send across to the Parc des Princes.

This one could exceed the €222m, then around £198m but now £190m, PSG paid Barcelona for Neymar in 2017 – and it would be accepted.

DONE DEAL

Atletico Madrid have finalised a deal for Hertha Berlin’s Matheus Cunha, the club as announced.

The 22-year-old has signed a five-year contract for a fee believed to be around £26million.

The attacking midfielder has represented Brazil and impressed during his time in Germany, scoring seven and assisting five goals in the Bundesliga last season.

PHIL-ING OUT A MOVE

Manchester United defender Phil Jones could still leave Old Trafford before next week’s transfer deadline following interest from Championship club Fulham.

90min report that Fulham are among a handful of Championship teams showing interest in Jones.

The most likely scenario would be a loan, with United still paying the majority of his wages, but it could give him the kind of regular playing time he needs to resurrect his stalled career.

Despite a total lack of competitive football since the start of the last calendar year, Jones is also still commanding Premier League interest from the likes of Newcastle and Watford.

BRAITHTAKING

Tottenham are plotting a transfer swoop for Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite, according to reports.

But according to Spanish outlet Sport, Barca are trying to get rid of the forward against his wishes.

Braithwaite believes he can get game time under boss Ronald Koeman this term, but could be persuaded to leave if big wages are offered.

And one of the only leagues where big wages are likely to be offered is the Premier League.

The report from Sport goes on to say that if an acceptable offer by Spurs was to be tabled before the transfer deadline “anything can happen”.

FE-GET IT

Manchester United target Federico Valverde has signed a new contract with Real Madrid until 2027.

And Los Blancos have slapped a whopping £856million release clause on the Uruguayan midfielder in addition to giving him a significant pay rise, according to Goal.

The 23-year-old, who scored three goals and provided one assist in 38 games last season for Madrid, was already tied down until 2025.

But Carlo Ancelotti’s side were so keen to keep Valverde, they added an extra two years along with the hefty release clause to deter prying parties such as United.

The Red Devils had been lining up the Valverde as a potential replacement for the want-away Paul Pogba.

OKAY TO RETURN?

Watford have had a loan bid rejected by Celta Vigo for Okay Yokuslu.

The Hornets remain in talks over a deal for the midfielder before the deadline.

Yokuslu impressed on loan at West Brom despite their relegation last season.

Sky Sports News revealed earlier in the window that both Watford and Wolves are interested in bringing him back to the Premier League.

JOSE WANTS LOFTUS-CHEEK?

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is wanted by Jose Mourinho at AS Roma, report Corriere dello Sport.

The England midfielder had a disappointing loan spell at Fulham last season and his chances of breaking into Thomas Tuchel’s plans look slim as he was left out of the squad for the win over Arsenal.

The report states that Chelsea are looking for £13.5million for the midfielder.

SPURS TO HIJACK DEAL?

Tottenham are interested in signing Lyon attacking midfielder Houssem Aouar.

Sky Sports News has learned informal talks have been held with Aouar’s representatives.

Aouar has two years left on his Lyon contract and wants to weigh up all of his options before making a decision on his future.

The playmaker’s preference is to play Champions League football and he is aware he may have more options for a move away from the Ligue 1 club this time next summer.

REDS RACING

Manchester United are in pole position to sign Erling Haaland for just £64million next summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils are one of many teams tracking the Borussia Dortmund striker.

But with his release clause set to kick in, Bild say United may well be at the front of the queue to secure a cut-price deal – especially because the ex-Molde man ‘dreams’ of playing in the Premier League.

However, that would mean having to deal with Mino Raiola to get the transfer done because the controversial agent represents Haaland.

Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping his personal ties with his compatriot can also ensure United win the race for the man widely considered one of the very best strikers in world football.

Chelsea are understood to have made a player-plus-cash offer for Haaland, 21, earlier in the summer window.

CITY SWITCH

According to L’Equipe, Manchester City may use Bernardo Silva and Aymeric Laporte, both 27, as makeweights in a potential deal for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Bombshell news on Tuesday evening suggested the Portuguese hero, 36, persuaded his representatives to contact the Premier League champions over a move.

Both players’ futures remain unclear with the pair linked with transfer exits earlier in the summer – including Laporte to Juventus.

And Pep Guardiola could deem them disposable – especially if it means landing superstar Ronaldo.

The report adds Ronaldo spoke with his Portuguese compatriots and City stars Silva, Rubes Dias and Joao Cancelo about life at the Etihad.

The Citizens would be willing to stump up the cash to pay for the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s mammoth wages.

MEGA DEAL

A super-agent is attempting to construct a deal that will see Kylian Mbappe move to Real Madrid, with Cristiano Ronaldo set to replace him at PSG.

According to Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol, the French giants have offered their star a new contract, but Mbappe appears unwilling to sign it.

Both Mbappe and Ronaldo are out on contract next year, with CR7 reportedly open to moving to Juventus this summer.

And if another clubs makes a move for the Portuguese star the club will not stand in his way.

Solhekol suggests the pandemic has had an affect on Juve’s finances and could be keen to get rid of Ronaldo’s hefty wages.

West Ham are also interested in adding to their attacking options and David Moyes has his sights set on Gaetan Laborde, report French outlet Le10Sport.

Montpellier reportedly want around £12.5m for the striker, who scored 18 goals in all competitions last season.

But with the Hammers also chasing deals for Kurt Zouma and Jesse Lingard, it remains to be seen whether there will be money left over for a forward.

SAR FOR SAUL

Saul Niguez is open to leaving Atletico Madrid before the end of the transfer window, and the Spanish side have already lined up a potential replacement in the form of Paris Saint-Germain playmaker Pablo Sarabia, according to Marca.

PSG need to lighten their squad due to an influx of new players this summer, so they are open to loaning out players that will be more on the fringes this season, such as Sarabia

With not long left in the current transfer window, however, time could be a difficult factor in recruiting the Spanish midfielder, considering the current champions will have to wait to see what happens with Saul before making any move for Sarabia.

JESSE ALTERNATIVE

David Moyes is targeting CSKA Moscow attacking midfielder Nikola Vlasic, as an alternative to Jesse Lingard, according to The Telegraph.

Lingard was a huge success during a loan spell at West Ham last season and he remains the club’s first-choice target in his position.

Should West Ham fail to match United’s asking price or agree another loan switch, then Moyes could give the green light for a move for Vlasic, who has excelled in Russia.

The Croatia international scored 12 goals last season and 13 in the previous campaign, having only made 12 Premier League appearances during his season at Everton.

RICH MOVE

Reports have begun to emerge that Real Madrid might yet make a late swoop to sign Kylian Mbappe in this window. And if that is the case, Richarlison is seen as the man to replace him.

It is indeed true that PSG have an eye on him but sources close to the situation are sceptical about whether there is time for it to fall into place before the deadline on August 31.

Richarlison is very happy at Everton yet has become more open to the prospect of leaving since Carlo Ancelotti exited Goodison Park.

Ideally he would love to join Real Madrid – an idea that has been mooted. However, the PSG route has more scope to open up and it is understood the Brazilian forward is keen on the prospect.

Even if that opportunity does not come now, PSG’s interest is genuine and they will look to move for him next year.
