MAN CITY are reportedly back in for Tottenham star Harry Kane, with the board preparing a huge £127m bid. Meanwhile, Romelu lukaku deal done. The Belgian striker is in London and will be confirmed soon after completing a £97m move from Inter Milan. And reports suggest that PSG are eyeing a move for Cristiano Ronaldo next summer as they look to pair CR7 with their new star man Lionel Messi.


 MORE MONEY MESSI

Lionel Messi looks set to pocket more cash from Barcelona despite leaving the Nou Camp for PSG. Football Espana claims the Catalan giants still have to pay the playmaker a £33million loyalty bonus even though he is no longer a Barca player. And the sum is thought to be a part of his eye-watering £492m contract with his former employers. The Argentina skipper, who has one six Ballon d'Or awards, sealed a £1m-a-week move to PSG this month becoming the club's highest earner.


 COSTA COMEBACK

Diego Costa looks set to make his return to football after being without a club since leaving Atletico Madrid in December. The former Chelsea frontman is reportedly set to sign a £40,000 a week deal with Atletico Mineiro. And Goal claims the striker has 'verbally agreed to a one-year deal' with the Brazilian club who are two points clear at the summit of Brazil's top-flight. It is claimed the salary offered to the former Stamford Bridge star is less than he had originally asked for.


HASEN HOPEFUL

 Ralph Hasenhuttl reckons Southampton will be able to keep hold of James Ward-Prowse despite interest from Aston Villa and Tottenham. SunSport's Tom Barclays writes that the Saints boss is confident of retaining the services of the England player, 26, who has four years left of his current deal. Last month Southampton bid farewell to striker Danny Ings who moved to Villa for £30million. And Jannik Vestergaard is finalising a Leicester City move. Hasenhuttl said: “It is normal that Prowsey is a guy that everyone wants to have but I don’t see a scenario for him not to be with us for the next years. “He knows he is the captain here, he knows how important he is for our club. He feels good here and we feel good with him."


 KANE IS ABLE

Man City are reportedly preparing a £127million bid to sign Tottenham striker Harry Kane. Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano tweeted: "Manchester City are not giving up on Harry Kane deal. "Man City board preparing a new bid for €150m [£127m] - if Spurs stance will change. "Tottenham have not received any new proposal for Kane yet, and want to keep him - Man City strategy is to be ready... and wait."


 HERE WE JOE

Newcastle have reportedly made major strides in their £25million pursuit of Arsenal ace Joe Willock. The Toon have allegedly agreed personal terms with the 21-year-old who spent the latter part of last season on loan with them, according to Sky Sports. And his permanent switch to St James' Park is practically a formality, Sky Sports tweeted. Sky Sports claim that Willock and the Magpies have reached a deal in principle, and that all he needs to do is complete his medical. The Gunners and Newcastle had already agreed to a fee potentially rising to £25m for the midfielder, who scored eight goals in 14 games during his short spell with the Geordies.


 HAA LA LAND

Man Utd are the only Premier League club with a chance of signing Erling Haaland, according to reports. But Real Madrid and Bayern Munich have emerged as favourites for his signature. Manchester City and Chelsea were strongly linked with the Norwegian goal machine earlier in the summer. But their swoops for Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku respectively have ruled them out of the race for Haaland. And the man himself has insisted that he is happy at Borussia Dortmund. The German side's enormous £150million price tag has scared off the duo. According to AS, Man United are the only Premier League club that could still make a move for the 21-year-old.


 NEYM CHANGER

Neymar believes that he is on the 'same path' as the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. When probed about how long he can stay at the top while promoting his Neymar Five event, he believes that 39-year-old Zlatan is a reference point for him. Neymar, 29, said: "The three athletes that you mentioned (Messi, Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic) are reference points. "I believe that I’m on the same path as them because I take care of myself a lot and I work hard. "I know that I need my body ready to play at the high level that I demand of myself. "I’ve just extended my contract up until 2025, so up until then, I have to maintain my physical, technical and tactical level."


 CUP OF PLENTY

Chelsea star Trevoh Chalobah has won his second trophy with the club - despite only playing ONE game. The 22-year-old featured for the duration of Chelsea's penalty shoot-out triumph against Villarreal on Wednesday night to win the Super Cup. It meant the Sierra Leone-born defender got his hands on another bit of silverware. Chalobah was part of Chelsea's FA Cup squad for the 2017-18 final against Manchester United. He didn't get on the pitch as an unused substitute - but joined in the celebrations after Eden Hazard's 22nd minute penalty secured a 1-0 win. Chalobah featuring against Villarreal was his full debut for the club having spent the last three seasons out on loan.


 BACK TO WORK

Harry Kane will return to Tottenham first-team training on Friday - if he tests negative for coronavirus. The England captain, 28, finally returned to Spurs HQ from his extended post-Euro 2020 holiday on Saturday. Kane was immediately placed in isolation at Tottenham's on-site Lodge accommodation for five days. With the striker now having served his five days he will take a PCR test on Thursday. Should that come back negative, Kane will be cleared to return to group training sessions, as opposed to the solo workouts he's been restricted to this week. That means Kane could be ready to play a part in Tottenham's Premier League season-opener against Manchester City on Sunday, with kick-off 4.30pm.


 IN THE SAME GOAT

PSG are hoping to finally bring Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo together after eyeing up a spectacular swoop for the Portuguese icon, according to reports. The two stars have long been friendly rivals on the pitch - most-notably in their nine-year stint together in LaLiga at Barcelona and Real Madrid. Earlier this week, PSG completed the free signing of Messi, 34, on a two-year deal following his shock Barca exit. And the Ligue 1 giants have already turned their attention to their next marquee signing by going for 36-year-old Ronaldo - but only if Kylian Mbappe leaves, according to AS. The French striker, 22, has been linked with a move to Real Madrid for years now. Mbappe was tipped with a big-money exit this summer, with just one year left on his contract.


 TUCH AND GO

Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Hakim Ziyech's shoulder injury could be 'serious' for Chelsea. The winger was taken off during the first-half of Wednesday's Uefa Super Cup win over Villarreal, having scored the opener. After the game, Tuchel provided an update on Ziyech's condition. He told BT Sport: "If you take a player out during the first-half it is serious. "[It's] unfortunate, because he has been a decisive player in recent games." Ziyech started in Belfast having hit two goals in pre-season, leading to hopes of a strong campaign off the back of a quiet debut year in West London.


RIO DEAL

Chelsea have developed a 'winning mentality' that can push them towards the Premier League title, according to Rio Ferdinand. Wednesday's Uefa Super Cup victory over Villarreal followed the Blues' Champions League win last season. Ferdinand told BT Sport: "The big difference for them this season is what's expected of them now. "There wasn't an expectancy last season, there is now. Because they've got their hands on two trophies - the big one, the Champions League, and now this. "The winning mentality is in the building, there's a real sense of brotherhood within that squad. "This team now is expected to compete for the Premier League. [For] all the big trophies, they are going to be expected to be there competing for them at the last stages. "That's a difference for them, how they deal with that is the big question."


lukaku deal done

Chelsea have re-signed Inter Milan forward Romelu Lukaku for a fee of around £97.5million, it has finally been confirmed. Lukaku, who left the Blues in 2014 for Everton, has now completed a sensational return to west London as Thomas Tuchel looks to mount a Premier League title challenge in the upcoming season.

The 28-year-old striker fired Inter Milan to the Serie A title last season and will be hoping to do the same with Chelsea for the upcoming campaign. Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia has described the Belgium international as "one of the world's best" following his big-money move and cannot wait for him to get started with the Blues.
