Transfer news LIVE! Messi CONFIRMED; Kane to sign new Spurs contract

Chelsea are set to sign Romelu Lukaku from Inter Milan for £97m, with the Blues deciding against Erling Haaland this summer – and that should spark a scramble when his £65m release clause kicks in next summer. And Roma have now reportedly agreed a deal for Tammy Abraham.

Lautaro Martinez has also emerged as a target for Arsenal and Spurs, but the latter are looking to pair him with, rather than replace, Harry Kane – though Lukaku’s exit from Inter could put a spanner in the works. Kane is now being touted to sign a new contract.

DONE DEAL! Messi signs for PSG

It’s been confirmed, the world’s greatest player has a new home.


Messi passes medical

Lionel Messi has passed his medical at PSG, so all roads lead to tomorrow’s unveiling.

That was the final hurdle.


When will Messi make PSG debut?

Messi could make his PSG debut as soon as Saturday night, when Mauricio Pochettino’s side host Strasbourg in their second Ligue 1 fixture of the new season.

They will be looking to build on the opening 2-1 win at Troyes that followed their eight-year dominance of the Trophee des Champions being ended in a 1-0 defeat by Ligue 1 winners Lille.


Kane to sign a new contract?

Could Harry Kane be ready for a Tottenham U-turn?

That’s what Football.London’s Alasdair Gold is reporting, with the new season fast approaching and with less than three weeks to run in the transfer window.

Kane has three years left on his current deal and would be in line for a pay rise. It is unlikely to include a release clause, which helped Jack Grealish join Man City, though would not be an extension.

PSG post another Messi tease

They are LOVING this. And why not.


DONE DEAL: Armstrong joins Southampton

Bolstering their forward line following Danny Ings’ departure.


Messi salary at PSG

Looking at the €35m take home salary, that works out at just shy of €3m per month (€2.91m to be more precise).

Messi will take home €729,000 a week, or €104,000 a day or €8,680 per hour or €144.68 per minute or €2.41 per second. These are all rough estimates, of course.

On top of that, Messi will also pocket a €25m signing on fee.

Interestingly, it is more than Neymar’s reported €31m-a-year wages and PSG remain in talks with Kylian Mbappe over an extension to his contract, which has just one year to run and will be of similar expense.


Tuchel tight-lipped on Lukaku

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has refused to discuss the imminent arrival of Romelu Lukaku.

Belgium striker Lukaku is understood to be on the verge of returning to Stamford Bridge from Inter Milan for a fee believed to be £97million.

However, speaking before Wednesday’s Super Cup final against Villareal, Tuchel said: “I’m absolutely not in a position to announce anything.

“I will maybe refuse to talk about it as we are in a press conference before a European final. Today there is nothing to announce.”
