Transfers LIVE! Lukaku to join Chelsea today; new contract for Kane

Lionel Messi been officially unveiled as a PSG player in one of the biggest transfers in the history of football.

Arsenal have made one big move in £50m Ben White, and want another in the former of either Martin Odegaard or James Maddison.

Kane can’t stay at Spurs

Former Tottenham goalkeeper Paul Robinson can’t see how Harry Kane stays at Spurs this summer, amid strong interest from Manchester City.

“I think there’s going to be a lot more to this story in the coming weeks when things start to unravel,” Robinson told

“The manager’s saying he’s available for selection against Manchester City on Sunday, but I find that strange given he’s only trained for a few days and not played any minutes in pre-season games. I can’t see how that can happen.

“If the manager does start putting him into squads and into the team while the situation is not resolved, I think we’ll end up in a similar situation to when Christian Eriksen was there – sitting on the bench, not playing to his full potential when called upon.

“That upset the rest of the dressing room, in all honesty, and I think the way this has been handled has not been good for either party. It’s very difficult to keep a player happy when he wants to leave.

“I don’t think there’s a possibility that he can stay there now.”
