From Kylian Mbappe to Dan James and Ruben Neves, the transfers to look out for on deadline day involving Chelsea, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Arsenal

It’s transfer deadline day and there are still many deals to be completed and plenty of drama to unfold.

Arsenal are looking to move players out of the door and Man United fans really want the club to sign a defensive midfielder, though they will have to lose players first.

There are still some deals that need to be resolved in the next 24 hours
Mbappe has been subject to two unsuccessful bids from Real Madrid so far and will be hoping the two clubs can reach an agreement

It has arguably been one of the best transfer windows in years with many of the biggest names in football moving to new clubs.

Cristiano Ronaldo re-joined Manchester United, Lionel Messi left Barcelona for PSG and Manchester City smashed the British transfer record to sign Jack Grealish for £100 million.

As the clock ticks down for players to seal a late move, looks at who could be playing in new club colours after the 31 August deadline…

Kylian Mbappe: PSG, 22 years old

The France superstar has been in the capital since signing from Monaco in 2017 and is in the final year of his contract.

Reports have said he is not going to sign a new deal despite being offered a new contract by the club and is set to leave the club either in this window or for free in the next.

Real Madrid have already tested PSG’s resolves with two bids, the first was an initial €160m (£137m) and a second of €180m (around £154.4m).

The deal is now apparently hanging in the balance as French outlets say Los Blancos are now preparing a whopping €200m (£171.5m) bid.

Dan James: Manchester United, 23 years old

James is the man to make way for a potential deadline day signing at Old Trafford.

The winger is on his way to Leeds in a £24m move, two years after his move to Elland Road collapsed at the last minute.

It means Jesse Lingard is likely to stay. Following the summer arrivals of Jadon Sancho and the return of Ronaldo, plus the form of Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes, Lingard’s game time appears limited.

However, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to rely on him ahead of what will be a long season for the club as they juggle European and Premier League football. Lingard is out of contract in 2022.

Lingard had hopes to work his way back into the fold at his boyhood club but with Ronaldo coming back, a move away seems to be his best option

Houssem Aouar: Lyon, 23 years old

Lyon’s number 8, Aouar has been subject of numerous interest from varying clubs for the last few seasons with Arsenal heavily interested in the midfielder’s services.

Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano reported he has been offered to both Tottenham Hotspur and the Gunners and he could yet seal a move to either north London club in the remaining time left.

He could also prove to be a real bargain as he is apparently available for a fee as little as £21.5m as the player entered the final two years of his contract.

With that being said, Spurs have said that he is not a priority which could pave the way for their rivals to secure the deal.

Aouar has made 127 appearances for Lyon and will be hoping to not make many more

Callum Hudson-Odoi: Chelsea, 20 years old

Another one who could be best suited for a move away from their boyhood club is Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi.

Several outlets have shown one club to be seriously interested in the player and that is Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund.

Following their loss of Jadon Sancho to Manchester United, a move for Hudson-Odoi makes a great deal of sense as they look to fill the void the former winger created.

A loan offer has reportedly been tabled by Dortmund and the player is keen on the move, however there are still complications in the deal as Chelsea are undecided whether to keep him or not.

Additionally, Leicester are a Premier League side said to be keen.

Richarlison: Everton, 24 years old

Should Mbappe leave the Parc des Princes, Brazil forward Richarlison has been tipped to leave Merseyside for Paris.

Of course the move is highly dependant on the Frenchman’s departure to Real Madrid, but should a deal be agreed, then manager Mauricio Pochettino could make a move for the Everton forward.

The Merseyside club have reportedly placed an £85m price tag on his head as they look to make a substantial profit since signing him from Watford in 2018 for an £35m with the fee potentially rising to £50m.

Richarlison was also furious on the weekend after the ball was taken off him when he wanted to step up to take a penalty against Brighton instead of regular designated spot-kick taker Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Kieran Trippier: Atletico Madrid, 30 years old

Having been linked with a move away from La Liga champions Atletico Madrid all summer, Trippier could still yet leave the Spanish capital.

A move for Trippier could make a great deal of sense for manager Mikel Arteta as the club look to rectify that issue in their defence.

Hector Bellerin has been injured and the club seemingly wants to move him on and he is keen on a departure.

Should he leave, it could pave the way for the former Spurs defender to arrive back into north London despite him being linked to a move to Manchester United for the majority of the window.

Ruben Neves: Wolves, 24 years old

‘Sign a DM’ was trending on Twitter on Monday evening and there are signs that Wolves will let 24-year-old midfielder join United.

He was an odds on favourite on the morning of deadline day to complete a last minute move, which could be made easier by the fact compatriot Renato Sanches is en route to Wolves.

If a move for Cristiano Ronaldo can be rattled through quickly then this should be no problem, right?

Neves can sit deep and dictate the tempo of a game and seems perfect for the middle at Old Trafford

Jules Kounde: Chelsea, 22 years old

The Blues will try and sign the defender one more time.

Journalist Fabrizio Romano noted the complications in getting a deal over the line on Monday, but says there is hope something can be sorted.

It seems the goal posts have been moved a few times by Sevilla, though a deal for Atletico Madrid man Saul is off, it seems.
