    JOE GO

    Manchester City's Joel Latibeaudiere is nearing a move to Swansea, according to the Telegraph.

    The England Under-20 defender spent part of last season on loan at Twente and is set for another temporary stint away.

    Championship high flyers Reading are also said to be keen on Latibeaudiere.

    HAALF A CHANCE

    More on Erling Haaland, as Real Madrid are reportedly keeping tabs on the Borussia Dortmund star as well as Giovanni Reyna.

    Spanish outlet Marca claims that Los Blancos will target Norwegian Haaland if they cannot sign Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.

    The striker, 20, is said to have a £63million release clause in his Dortmund contract and is considered the perfect replacement for Karim Benzema.

    Manchester United have also been linked with the hotshot forward.

    THREE’S COMPANY

    Barcelona are reportedly set to revive their interest in Memphis Depay, Georginio Wijnaldum and Eric Garcia in January.

    The Blaugrana failed in their attempts to sign the trio in the summer with the club lacking funds due to being hit by the Covid-19 crisis.

    The LaLiga giants even had to slash players and staff's wages by 70 per cent after feeling the full economic impact of the deadly virus.

    As a result, Barca were unable to land their main targets – a striker in the shape of Lyon's Depay and a centre-back in the form of Manchester City's Garcia.

    The trio are all set to become free agents in 2021, and according to Mundo Deportivo, the Spanish side will look to secure their services in cut-price deals.

    VIC BOX EXERCISE

    Victor Moses WILL complete his loan move to Spartak Moscow, it has been claimed.

    There have been concerns over the winger’s switch, reportedly of a medical nature.

    But Football.London states that the deal will go ahead before the Russian market shuts on Saturday.

    HIL THE ROAD, AL

    Al Hilal reportedly failed with a deadline day swoop for Gylfi Sigurdsson.

    The Athletic state that a late bid for the Everton star was rejected by the player, to allow him to fight for his place under Carlo Ancelotti.

    The former Reading star, 31, has featured in every Toffees game this season, with three of his four Premier League outings coming off the bench.

    HAA HAA LAND

    Erling Haaland has teased Real Madrid fans with a picture of himself and Martin Odegaard.

    The Norwegian pair featured in Sunday’s 4-0 rout of Romania, with Haaland bagging a hat-trick.

    And, while Manchester United fans harbour dreams of signing the teenager, it was Los Blancos getting excited by this post.

    Reports in Spain suggest Haaland will be a big target for Madrid in 2022, with Kylian Mbappe on their radar next summer.

    STEG OF THE DUMP

    Chelsea were one of many clubs to try and tempt Marc-Andre ter Stegen during the transfer window.

    According to Mundo Deportivo, the Blues urged the goalkeeper to reject a new Barcelona contract.

    Juventus and Inter Milan were also poking at ter Stegen, 28, in a bid to lure him away from the Blaugrana.

    But, with his contract to 2022 currently up for renewal, the German apparently wants to remain in Spain.

    MATA OF FACT

    Juan Mata turned down a mega money move to Saudi Arabia during the transfer window, it has been claimed.

    Spanish newspaper AS detail a whopping £18million contract laid down for the midfielder, 32.

    But, despite being flattered by the offer, Mata wants to try and win a title with Manchester United.

    His contract expires in the summer, with the option for a year extension.

    CANT BE DONE

    A Leeds deal for Norwich’s Todd Cantwell looks unlikely before Friday’s deadline.

    The Whites have been tracking the £20million playmaker since last season and have until Friday to buy EFL players.

    Leeds have also monitored Derby youngster Louie Sibley, but Victor Orta is not confident of adding to Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.

    The transfer chief said: “We are analysing but obviously the market is greatly reduced now.

    “We know them really well, their clubs were our rivals, we analysed [Cantwell] in the Premier League.

    “It's difficult. They are players we analysed, we have information and then we need to think about the possibility.”

    WENGER 'WASTE'

    Arsene Wenger feels Mesut Ozil's exile from the Arsenal team is a “waste”.

    The former Gunners boss brought Ozil to the club and hopes to see him back in Mikel Arteta's team.

    He told BBC Sport: “I feel it is a waste for him.

    “Firstly because he's in the years where a player of his talent can produce the most. And it's a waste for the club as well because he's a super talent, a creative talent that in the final third can create that killer pass.

    “The way football is going at the moment it's quick counter-pressing, quick transitions and everybody plays the same. It's kicked out players like Ozil.

    “Although let's not forget who this guy is. A world champion who has played at Real Madrid.

    “He's been the record player of assists, so you have to find a way to get him involved again.”

    DOWN UNDER DEAL

    Melbourne Victory have completed the signing of former Wigan and Stoke winger Callum McManaman.

    The 29-year-old spent last year with Luton as the Hatters beat the drop in the Championship.

    And he now heads to Australia, signing a two-year deal that was confirmed overnight.

    McManaman said: “This is a proud club with a huge supporter base and we all want to help get Victory back up the table.

    “It’s going to take plenty of hard work, but I can’t wait to get started under Grant [Brebner].”

    UNITED NATIONS

    Arsene Wenger wants a World Cup or Euros every summer.

    And he is willing to see the Nations League scrapped in order to accommodate the major shake up.

    Wenger, 70, was appointed Fifa's head of global football development last year and suggested the new plans to improve the international game.

    The ex-Arsenal boss – whose home nation France are the reigning world champions – told Bild: “We need to get rid of the Nations League and find clearer events that everyone understands.

    “If you ask people in the street what the Nations League is, you won’t find many able to explain it.

    “We need to have as few events as possible. One World Cup and one European Championship every other year would probably be more appropriate for a modern world.”

    GOOD MORNING FOOTBALL FANS

    Craig Dawson has signed for West Ham on a season-long loan.

    And if it goes well he will sign a permanent deal worth around £2million next summer.

    Dawson, 30, is leaving Championship Watford to help West Ham boss David Moyes bolster his defence just in time for the resumption of the Premier League this weekend.

    He will wear the No15 shirt at the London Stadium.

    Moyes has been chasing a centre half all summer and failed with a £30million bid for number one target James Tarkowski at Burnley.

    The transfer window for EFL clubs is still open until Friday and Dawson has agreed terms with the Irons and will join up for training later this week.

    Arsenal are set to make a surprise U-turn on William Saliba and keep him at the club despite interest from Fulham, it is being reported.

    The defender had been tipped to go out on loan throughout the window and has multiple admirers at home and abroad.

    But now manager Mikel Arteta looks set to keep the 19-year-old at the club and allow him to develop there.

    Said Benrahma's £25million move from Brentford to West Ham is OFF, according to reports.

    The Algerian has been linked with a move to London Stadium but the deal has fallen through, according to the Mirror.

    Benrahma told the Bees he wanted to leave at the weekend and he is now understood to have fallen out with the West London club over “broken promises”.

    West Ham will instead focus all their efforts on bringing in Josh King from Bournemouth.

    Manchester United could reportedly replace Paul Pogba with countryman Eduardo Camavinga.

    Pogba's deal expires next summer, but United do have the option to extend it for another season.

    But according to Spanish newspaper AS, plans are being drawn up to prepare for the 27-year-old's departure.

    And Rennes starlet Camavinga has emerged as a potential long-term replacement.

    Finally, Arsene Wenger has revealed how painfully close Arsenal came to signing Cristiano Ronaldo in 2003.

    The then-Gunners chief revealed he 'had an agreement' with Sporting Lisbon to sign the Portuguese star in the summer before embarking on the famous 'Invincibles' season.

    Wenger revealed all after being asked if there were any players he regrets missing out on during his career.

    He told The Guardian: “I would say there is not one player… there are 50. We had an agreement with Sporting and Man Utd took Carlos Queiroz as assistant coach, and they just outbid us quickly and took Ronaldo.”

    HOMES UNDER HAMMER

    Premier League chiefs want the head of Rick Parry — as it emerged Spurs and Liverpool would get a £150million stadium rebate under Project Big Picture.

    Parry’s future as EFL chairman is under serious threat after football’s civil war intensified.

    Top-flight clubs and League bosses want Parry OUT after he was the frontman for Liverpool and Manchester United’s widely panned scheme.

    The news two of the Big Six wealthiest clubs — both criticised for plans to furlough staff in lockdown — will be huge winners from the proposals added to the turmoil.

    Another day of drama saw all-out war, with:

    – Prem leaders calling off any more EFLbailout talks in protest.

    – Seething club bosses wanting Parry to step down by Thursday’s EFL board meeting, with even some Championship sides admitting the plan is dead.

    – Prem chiefs accusing Parry of seeking to use backing from Liverpool and United to return to the Prem as CEO.

    JUST PLAIN ROM

    Some Man Utd stars are furious at Sergio Romero's treatment, according to reports.

    The backup goalkeeper failed to secure a move away from Old Trafford during the last window as United reportedly refused to let him go for a penny less than £10million.

    The Argentine has now been left out their Champions League squad – replaced by Dean Henderson.

    And that has left members of the Red Devils' dressing room angry, according to ESPN.

    CAM I HAVE IT

    Eduardo Camavinga went home with Cristiano Ronaldo’s shirt after France's 0-0 draw with Portugal and vowed: “I won’t wash it”.

    The in-demand Rennes star was left on the bench as the five-time Ballon d'Or winner played all 90 minutes of Sunday night's Nations League stalemate.

    Despite not making it onto the pitch, Camavinga had seemingly already won the respect of his idol – with Ronaldo giving him his game-worn jersey.

    In France's previous game, the midfielder has scored a stunning overhead kick in the 7-1 drubbing of Ukraine.

    After the game, Camavinga took to Snapchat to share a picture of the grubby shirt with his pals and he captioned the pic: “I won't wash it.”

    Camavinga has made no bones of the fact he is desperate to move to Real Madrid having grown up watching Ronaldo strutting his stuff at the Bernabeu prior to his 2018 exit.

    YOU KEANE ROY?

    Man Utd legend Roy Keane is second-favourite with the bookies to take over as Salford manager after Paul Scholes was named as caretaker on Monday.

    The Irishman, 49, was spotted looking unimpressed in the stands at the club's game with Tranmere at the weekend.

    Keane watched on as the visitors scored twice in the last five minutes to secure a point, which led to Graham Alexander being sacked.

    And now Keane is being tipped with taking over at Salford – after Scholes was installed as temporary boss.

    The former Man Utd hardman hasn't managed since 2011 after a tough two years at Ipswich.

    Keane had spent two years at Sunderland prior to his spell in Suffolk.

    DAVID BETRAYER

    David De Gea has reportedly fallen out with his former agent Jorge Mendes.

    The Athletic claim the pair's relationship first started to break down over the Spaniard's botched move to Real Madrid in 2015.

    De Gea almost moved to Real five years ago before the deal collapsed as the paperwork was not lodged in time due to a fax problem.

    The keeper hails from the Spanish capital and started his career at rivals Atletico Madrid before moving to Old Trafford in 2011.

    And De Gea is said to have been left 'exasperated' with Cristiano Ronaldo's super-agent by his own failed switch to the Bernabeu.

    Mendes was still tasked with sorting the 29-year-old's £375,000-a-week United extension in September 2019.

    But the pair’s relations have reportedly been severely damaged by a dispute during the final stage of the 18-month negotiations.

    HOLD THE DAW

    Craig Dawson is on his way to West Ham on a season long loan.

    And if it goes well he will sign a permanent deal worth around £2million next summer.

    Dawson, 30, is leaving Championship Watford to help West Ham boss David Moyes bolster his defence just in time for the resumption of the Premiership this weekend.

    He will wear the No 15 shirt at the London Stadium.

    Moyes has been chasing a centre half all summer and failed with a £30million bid for number one target James Tarkowski at Burnley.

    The transfer window for EFL clubs is still open until Friday and Dawson has agreed terms with the Irons and will join up for training later this week.

    TEENAGE KICK$

    Manchester United kept up their tradition of spending big on teenage stars in the summer transfer by bringing in Atalanta ace Amad Diallo.

    And Diallo is by no means the first big-money youngster to head to Old Trafford in recent years.

    In fact, United absolutely dominate the list of most-expensive teenagers in Premier League history.

    We've put together the costliest XI ever, below…

    WILL I NEVER

    Arsenal are set to make a surprise U-turn on William Saliba and keep him at the club despite interest from Fulham, it is being reported.

    The defender had been tipped to go out on loan throughout the window and has multiple admirers at home and abroad.

    But now manager Mikel Arteta looks set to keep the 19-year-old at the club and allow him to develop there.

    Saliba's move abroad fell through on deadline day and he was left out of Arsenal's Europa League squad, prompting speculation he could still be on his way before the domestic window closes on October 16.

    But the Athletic report the Frenchman will stay at the Emirates until January at least, despite reported interest from Fulham and Brentford.

    The report also says that Saliba could be in Arteta's Premier League squad, which will be announced on October 20.

    POOR OLD PARRY

    Under-fire EFL chairman Rick Parry was plunged into a second crisis as chief executive David Baldwin quit after just three MONTHS in the job.

    Baldwin filled the vacancy left by December’s departure of Shaun Harvey only in June.

    But he has now announced he will walk out ofhis role in March, leaving Parry and the EFL scrambling to find a replacement.

    Baldwin, a former chief exec at Bradford and Burnley, insisted his decision was “not linked” to the Project Big Picture furore.

    He said: “Clearly, accepting this position pre COVID-19 means the situation is now very different to the one I originally envisaged.

    “That is coupled with it being a very different environment inside the EFL compared to the one I left in 2015/16. Taking those two factors into consideration and balancing the needs of my family, health and well-being, I feel the decision to leave is the right one.”

    KANE AIM

    Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes his old club should abandon their pursuit of Jadon Sancho and go after Harry Kane or Erling Haaland instead.

    An interview clip tweeted by Stadium Astro's Alison Bender said: “Scholes tells me he wants Kane or Haaland, forget Sancho, he’s not the position they need. We also chatted a lot about defenders.”

    He also expressed his frustration with club officials for apparently failing to financially back Solskjaer and other former managers in the transfer market.

    In the same interview he said: “I don’t think he’s the first one who hasn’t been backed.

    “I think [Louis] van Gaal and [Jose] Mourinho especially had a moan about that and it’s understandable when they aren’t getting the players they want.

    “There’s been a lot of money spent but has it been spent on the first choices these managers want? I’m not too sure.”

    SAID BUT NOT DONE

    Said Benrahma's £25million move from Brentford to West Ham is OFF, according to reports.

    The Algerian has been linked with a move to London Stadium but the deal has fallen through, according to the Mirror.

    Benrahma told the Bees he wanted to leave at the weekend and he is now understood to have fallen out with the West London club over “broken promises”.

    West Ham will instead focus all their efforts on bringing in Josh King from Bournemouth.

    CAM AND GET HIM

    Manchester United could reportedly replace Paul Pogba with countryman Eduardo Camavinga.

    Pogba's deal expires next summer, but United do have the option to extend it for another season.

    But according to Spanish newspaper AS, plans are being drawn up to prepare for the 27-year-old's departure.

    And Rennes starlet Camavinga has emerged as a potential long-term replacement.

    United have 'put in place the mechanism' to sign Camavinga – and it started by already dealing with his agent.

    Camavinga is managed by Mousa Sissoko, who also looks after Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele.
