The Mail (live blog, 11.53am) is reporting that Manchester United are looking to offload the Argentina defender to fund moves for new signings.

The French giants have been interested in the ball-winner for months and have already made contact with both Chelsea and Kante's agent to talk about the possibilities of a transfer this summer.

The 25-year-old is believed to have held 'secret talks' with Barcelona over the last few days amid suggestions that the World Cup victor could be heading for Spain.

The Premier League giants have chose to put other irons in fire and it has been claimed that they have opened a parallel track towards Barcelona defender Mina.

Real Madrid midfielder Mateo Kovacic has reportedly turned down a move to Old Trafford because he does not like Jose Mourinho's tactics. This is why new Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri, doesn't want to lose him.

Chelsea have offered midfielder N'Golo Kante a new contract that will see him ranked as the highest paid player in the club's history in a bid to ward off potential interest from Paris Saint-Germain.

From east London to south London and Crystal Palace look set to complete a move for Ghana forward Jordan Ayew after sealing the signature of West Ham's Senegalese midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate, reports the Guardian.

Paul Pogba has had a very impressive summer indeed, and former Manchester United defender Wes Brown predicts he'll continue his form into the 2018-19 season.

The transfer of Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain, 30, from Juventus to AC Milan is "just about" done, according to Milan's general manager Beppe Marotta.

Chelsea will not allow Kante to leave for France and the 27-year-old has not asked to go.

His current contract has three years left and normally a new deal would not be offered until next year.
