Manchester United star Antonio Valencia is returning to full fitness

After the twists and turns of the transfer window, the new Premier League season kicks off this weekend - and you'll be able to watch numerous star signings on Sky Sports.

Unai Emery has already splashed out on Sokratis from Borussia Dortmund but with Calum Chambers joining Fulham on loan the Gunners are in the market for another centre-back and Boateng is one of several players being linked.

Rio Ferdinand has revealed which Manchester United centre-back transfer target is his preferred choice to join the club.

Any hope with which Manchester United supporters woke up on transfer deadline day has quickly been quashed by Jose Mourinho. Mourinho appeared to question Pogba's effort and heart while playing for his club, saying, "I don't think it's about us getting the best out of him [at Manchester United], it's about him giving the best he has to give".

Spurs are willing to negotiate over Alderweireld but United say they will not pay over the odds for a player who will be available for £25 million next summer.

Interest from Barcelona means that he may not be a Manchester United player for much longer, but his contributions to the club should not be underestimated.

With the transfer window set to shut down on Thursday, time is the most essential factor here, and both clubs are expected to find a way through on deadline day.

"He said: "[Sergio] Romero, he had a surgery after his injury, [Antonio] Valencia, he was injured in pre-eason, Marcos Rojo, he was injured in the World Cup, [Diogo] Dalot had a surgery in Porto at the end of April and he is not yet ready. In fact, the report suggests that the personally phoned in to Jose Mourinho to let him know of his decision to remain at the Allianz Arena.

Manchester United are trying to sign Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham. "That's why I am backing Jurgen Klopp's side to pip them to the title".

United, according to sources, have the funds to complete the deals they want but will not be held to ransom at this late stage of the window.

England internationals Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Eric Dier are among the players to have been given time off after the tournament, with no participation in pre-season games as a result.

A fourth successive top-four finish would represent a good outcome for Spurs, but they will be under pressure from Chelsea and Arsenal who finished fifth and sixth past year, while big-spending West Ham could push for a top-six finish.
