Cristiano Ronaldo set to stay

Will he? Won’t he?

Chelsea, Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli, Sporting CP. Plenty of clubs have been linked with a move for Ronaldo, who hasn’t started either of Manchester United’s last two matches, in recent weeks.

For now it looks like he’s staying at Old Trafford but is either party happy with him being on his salary but playing as a squad player?


Can Chelsea sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang? And Anthony Gordon?

Everton boss Frank Lampard has insisted it’s too late for Anthony Gordon to be sold now but Chelsea’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang pursuit remains alive.

It really seems like all parties want that one done.

There could be more outgoings at Stamford Bridge too, especially if players arrive. Keep an eye on Hakim Ziyech and maybe Armando Broja.


Is Frenkie de Jong staying at Barcelona?

After all that, it looks like a move is now off the table for Frenkie de Jong.

Unless he forgoes some of his Barcelona salary and Manchester United, or possibly Chelsea, return for him? Stranger things have happened.


Can Memphis find somewhere to play regular football?

Speaking of Dutchmen at Barcelona, Memphis Depay is yet to feature this season. Any takers?


Keep an eye out for Cody Gakpo

Another Dutch winger, Gakpo has been widely linked with a move away from PSV, with half the Premier League said to be interested.

One problem: the Eredivisie window shut on Wednesday and PSV can’t sign a replacement.


Liverpool still haven’t made their move

Signing a player this late in the day is tough and Liverpool can’t seem to find an attainable midfielder who can fit in.

Jürgen Klopp has admitted the club would like to and that they are trying but it might be too late.


Arsenal linked with a host of names

It seemed Arsenal would chase a winger in the final moments of the window, with Wolves’ Pedro Neto and Shakhtar’s Mykhaylo Mudryk both linked in recent days.

But injury has struck both Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny, leaving them light in midfield.

Palmeiras’ Danilo has been a rumoured target but will the Brazilian side be willing to enter talks this late?


Barcelona chasing fullbacks

Thomas Meunier, Marcos Alonso, Héctor Bellerín. Will one or two arrive at Camp Nou? And will Sergiño Dest be off?

Barcelona are not finished yet.


Free agents still available

Dan-Axel Zagadou, Marcelo, Florian Grillitsch and Ross Barkley are just some of the biggest names still without a club. Come and get your bargains here!


Surely Nottingham Forest are done now?

Surely?
