Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Man Utd 'optimistic' of keeping Pogba

Ferdinand wants Kane and Sancho at Man Utd

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand would love to see both Harry Kane and Jadon Sancho move to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have been linked with both players but Ferdinand has doubts whether either will actually make the move.

"Would I take Harry Kane now? Of course you would," Ferdinand said on Instagram Live. "This geezer scores goals but I don't see Tottenham letting Harry Kane go. And with Mourinho there, I don't see Mourinho letting him go to Man Utd.

"I would take Sancho all day..whether we'll get him, though. Great player, great potential, English, he's brilliant."

Summer transfer window could stay open until January

The English Football League (EFL) has discussed the potential of keeping the next transfer window open until January next year, reports the Mirror.

Man Utd now 'optimistic' of keeping Pogba

The World Cup winner could be staying put

Manchester United believe they will keep Paul Pogba beyond this summer as no club can afford him, reports ESPN.

Juventus and Real Madrid have been strongly linked to the Frenchman but the Red Devils doubt whether either club can finance a deal for him.

United currently value Pogba at £100 million ($117m), while he's currently earning around £300,000 a week at Old Trafford.

Premier League clubs looking to ensure Man City's UEFA ban is upheld

A number of Premier League clubs have joined forces in a bid to ensure Manchester City aren't allowed to play in the Champions League next season, according to the Daily Mail.

The likes of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have all written to the same law firm to stress their objection to the possibility of City competing in Europe should their punishment be 'stayed' while appeals are ongoing.

Sheffield United are the only side in the Premier League's current top 10 that haven't formally objected so far.

Barca struggling to lock down Ter Stegen

The club's number one wants to be paid as such

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Barcelona remain 'far apart' over terms of a new contract, reports Sport.

While the German is keen to remain at Camp Nou beyond his current contract that runs until 2022, he wants to be paid a similar amount to the club's biggest stars and therefore has rejected the club's first offer.

Ter Stegen is in high demand with Chelsea among a number of clubs reportedly interested.

Vertonghen weighing up his club options

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen admits he has a big decision to make when it comes to his club future.

Coming to the end of his current Spurs contract, the Belgium international concedes he has plenty to consider before settling on his next step.

"I'm in a process right now that I have to grab a piece of paper and write down the pros and cons of the options I will have soon," Vertonghen told De Kleedkamer.

"I will really have to decide what I want in my career. In three to four years, I will normally return to the place where I will likely settle down.

"I have to start thinking about where I still want to live, what language I want to learn, what culture I still want to live in. And also very importantly: which competitions and prizes I still want to win. I don't want to regret anything in my career."
