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.
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.
Sportsmail will keep you up-to-date with the latest negotiations, rumours and done deals below.
Reports have suggested that Manchester United are favourites to land Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund next summer.
The Norwegian striker scored 41 goals in 41 games last season and is wanted by a huge number of clubs including Chelsea, Manchester City and Real Madrid.
But it’s said Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are favourites to sign the prolific striker when his £64m release clause kicks in next summer.
The big news from last night was that Real Madrid have confirmed to Sportsmail they have put in a £137m bid for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe.
It would be a stunning move especially so late into the transfer window though the French side are expected to reject the bid.
If a move could be worked out it could though lead to Cristiano Ronaldo joining Lionel Messi and forming a dream team in Paris.
There is less than a week to go before the end of the summer transfer window and there are still some huge names who could find themselves at new clubs.
Real Madrid have submitted a £137m bid for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, which in turn could open the door for Cristiano Ronaldo to form an unlikely alliance with Lionel Messi at the French giants.
Manchester City meanwhile are looking to make one last effort to sign wantaway Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
