Man United and Chelsea are two of the four transactions that could happen in the final hours of the window.
The summer transfer window shuts on Tuesday at 11 p.m.
The transfer deadline is approaching, and clubs have until 11 p.m. on Tuesday to complete any last-minute moves. Club executives will be working around the clock to give their teams an advantage in what is shaping up to be one of the most competitive Premier League seasons ever.
With a slew of mega-money transfers, it’s been one of the most extraordinary transfer windows ever.
Manchester City surpassed the British transfer record when they signed Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, but they were unable to sign Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
Chelsea surpassed their club transfer record by bringing Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge earlier this month, while Liverpool signed Ibrahima Konate as a defensive reinforcement.
After spending significant money on Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, Manchester United will welcome Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club this week, while Tottenham have also bolstered their ranks.
Arsenal have signed five players so far and will be anxious for more after their disastrous start to the season.
Express Sport looks at four possible deals in the closing 24 hours of the transfer window.
Jules Kounde has been widely connected with Chelsea throughout the summer, and he appeared to be set to join the Blues earlier in the transfer season.
The 22-year-old centre-back started the first two La Liga games of the season for Sevilla, but was benched against Elche on Saturday, fueling doubts over his future.
Kounde has a £68 million release clause, and with Sevilla demanding that the Blues pay it in full, the agreement is hanging on a thread.
Chelsea appears to be on the verge of missing out, but given the Londoners’ financial situation, a last-minute deal is still a possibility.
After a great Euro 2020 performance with England, Manchester United has been pursuing Kieran Trippier this summer.
Trippier would provide Aaron Wan-Bissaka competition at right-back while also allowing United to play five at the back.
The Atletico Madrid full-back can also play on the left side of the defense, giving Solskjaer some attacking options down the flanks.
United, on the other hand, are unwilling to pay Atletico’s high asking price for a player who is 30 years old and will be out of contract in 2023.
The Red Devils’ chances are still up in the air. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
