Jerome Boateng rejects Manchester United move

Ferdinand also sympathised with the Manchester United youth players after Mourinho's scathing comments following their 4-1 pre-season defeat to Liverpool during their tour of America.

Although they are in the market for a centre-back, the Red Devils now appear to have withdrawn from the race.

Despite only making one appearance in the 2018 World Cup for Japan, Muto managed to score eight goals and contribute four assists in his 27 appearances for Mainz in Bundesliga.

As United dither, Liverpool have emerged as second favourites for the title behind City after splashing over £170 million ($220 million) on goalkeeper Alisson and midfielders Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri.

That means that clubs in Scotland, France, Italy and further afield could all move for PNE players, while North End could also shift some out of favour players off the wage bill.

Mourinho warned last weekend that a "difficult season" could lie ahead if they failed to strengthen the squad before the deadline. Out of favour at Tottenham for most of last season, Jose Mourinho is said to be keen to add the Belgian's experience to his defence in time for the new campaign and has made him his number one priority.

Earlier in the day, Pochettino said: "At the moment we haven't received for any player".

India vs England, Lord's Test
Virat Kohli and his men though might now have to deal with the seam and swing of the English pacers, under overcast conditions. Well, bowling coach Bharat Arun hinted the visitors may not opt for an extra batsman and called it a "conservative move".

Manchester United's summer transfer window had so much potential. "Nobody is consistent with 11 players".

I think it'll be tough but if they were to go of the Champions League and they had free weeks after Christmas, Saturday-to-Saturday they could be a real threat this season to City.

Chelsea shattered the world record fee for a goalkeeper with an 80-million euro (£71.6 million, $92 million) swoop for Athletic Bilbao's Kepa Arrizabalaga on Wednesday to replace Belgian global Thibaut Courtois, who has joined European champions Real Madrid. Matic, we weren't expecting him to be injured and needing a surgery after the World Cup.

It is unclear where he stands at Chelsea under Maurizio Sarri. In preparation for this, they've agreed on a double deal for two new central defenders.

The Italian takes his side to Huddersfield Town on Saturday where Kepa Arrizabalaga, the world's most expensive keeper at 71 million pounds ($91.43 million), is set to make his debut.

Perhaps instead, Tottenham should demand to sign Juan Mata in part exchange. But it's been a bit of a unusual pre-season for these teams with people involved in the World Cup.
