A Real Madrid star, who is apparently refusing to train with the first-team squad, is reportedly on the verge of joining Premier League outfit Chelsea in "the next few hours".

Many are tipping Liverpool to be their closest challengers this season, after a a £123.6m spending spree this summer.

Man United's pursuit of a new central defender is still underway though, and it's like one of Tottenham Hotspur's Toby Alderweireld, Leicester City's Harry Maguire, Barcelona's Yerry Mina or Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng will arrive before Thursday evening.

Midfield trio Tiemoue Bakayoko, Danny Drinkwater and Ruben Loftus-Cheek may all go out to get more regular game time.

"It doesn't take away from City's excellence, but we want the season to go to the last", said Scudamore.

"If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us".

"I speak to clubs who say: "This is fantastic, we knew what the deadline was and we've worked to that".
