Pep Guardiola refuses to rule out Man City transfer for Dani Alves

Manchester United look set for a busy end to the window with Romelu Lukaku and perhaps Paul Pogba still heading for the exit.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears happy to ditch the Belgian and Juventus may have edged ahead of Inter Milan in the race to sign him.

Paulo Dybala in return, as well as Inter’s stubborness to raise their offer closer to United’s asking price, could send Lukaku to Turin in a sensational swap move.

Meanwhile, Gareth Bale’s move to China has collapsed and he is too “traumatised” to travel to Germany for the Audi Cup.

Though Josh Toshack has criticised the Welsh forward for his behaviour since moving to Spain.

“Come out Gareth, do an interview, speak yourself,” the 70-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live. “You’ve been here six or seven years now. You don’t speak the language. That’s an insult to the people that you’re working for.

“It’s not gone down well at all here in Spain, and it saddens me.

“He’s been important in Real Madrid. It’s just a great pity that he hasn’t engaged himself a little bit more with the country that he’s living in, with the supporters that are there every week.

“Gareth, come on. Take a little bit of time out and learn the language.”


All of the Italian dailies report on Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala's potential swap move. 

Pavel Nedved has already confirmed there have been proposals for the Argentine forward. 

And Juventus have moved ahead of Inter Milan for the Belgian striker, who is out of favour under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, by offering the player in exchange. 

Meanwhile, it could mean Inter shifting focus to Edinson Cavani, though the PSG forward remains a key part of Thomas Tuchel's side and losing such a top player this late in the window without an alternative lined up appears unlikely.

Marcos Rojo is evaluating his future at Man United. 

ESPN claim the Argentine could push for a move if his chances of first team football remain limited. 

With interest in Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe also at the club, Rojo's days look numbered at Old Trafford.

Arsenal could hand Nicolas Pepe a medical today before a deal can be completed on Wednesday. 

The Gunners appear to have beaten Napoli for the Ivorian winger. 

A first payment of £20 million will be paid by the Gunners, before £52m in installments are added, according to the Mail.

Monaco have bid €30m (£27.5m) for Porto's Danilo. 

L'Equipe and Record report the defensive midfielder is top of the Ligue 1 club's to-do list for the remainder of the window. 

The French newspaper also reports Radamel Falcao could leave, meaning Real Madrid's Mariano Diaz could become a late target.

Neymar's PSG exit could be back on. 

That's because the French club have lowered their asking price, according to Sport. 

From €300 million (£275m) to €180m (£165m), meaning Barcelona may now be able to afford a deal. 

No players will be accepted as part-payment for the Brazilian, who has made it clear he wants to leave.

Philippe Coutinho remains in a difficult situation as there are currently no suitors for his services. 

The club and the player's representatives are yet to receive any offer for the Brazilian. 

While the Premier League looks impossible due to the premature closure of the window, PSG are now the only solution or Ernesto Valverde will have to manage a star player disgruntled at a lack of involvement as Barcelona look to move on from the Liverpool star.

There is now real optimism a deal involving Lukaku and Dybala can be made between United and Juventus. 

Corriere dello Sport claim the only sticking point will be whether Dybala wants to move to Old Trafford, but that he can be convinced. 

Inter are not totally out of the picture they add, but for now it seems like there could be a blockbuster deal to end the summer.

Lukaku to Juventus would push Mauro Icardi towards Napoli. 

Carlo Ancelotti could add the out-of-favour Inter star to his front line in an attack that could propel them towards a title challenge. 

Corriere dello Sport claim Napoli are currently preparing their offer. 

While Inter have bid €15m for Edin Dzeko and are also monitoring Cavani in the event the deal for Lukaku falls through.

Man City are reigniting their interest in Joao Cancelo. 

Sportitalia claim Pep Guardiola's wants the Portuguese full-back, who is valued at €50m (£45.8m). 

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were also keen, while City may now have to accept Danilo cannot be included as part of the deal.

Angel Correa's agent has met with AC Milan over a move with Tottenham and Valencia also making offers for the Argentine. 

Atletico Madrid want €50m (£46.8m), but Milan have bid €40m (£36.6m) plus bonuses. 

Rafael Leao of Lille and Flamengo defender Leo Duarte also look set for the San Siro, costing a combined €41m (£37.5m).
