Duran swap?

Lima won't be the last wonderkid to be signed by Chelsea this summer, with Jhon Duran potentially involved in a swap for Conor Gallagher.

However, Chelsea could also repeat what they did with Romelu Lukaku in 2021 and instead re-sign a former youth player.

Man Utd's transfer plans

Man Utd have decided to keep Erik ten Hag on board - but why?

At least four players will stand to benefit from this.

And who will be the biggest losers of this decision?

With the coaching decision settled, transfer planning can kick into gear and Ten Hag has already made two demands.

But Sir Jim Ratcliffe won't spend 'Harry Maguire-like' money on one player this summer.

One of Man Utd's targets is Leny Yoro and his club president has now confirmed that he will be allowed to move.

Matthijs de Ligt has also been linked, but will Man Utd pursue him?

And what does the future hold for Mason Greenwood?

Could he be replaced with one of Ten Hag's compatriots after a stunning, 11th-hour hijack?

Transfer news

Finally, let's finish up with some more transfer news from around the world. Lionel Messi has announced that Inter Miami will be his last club.

Bournemouth youngster Milos Kerkez has become one of Chelsea's top summer targets.

Real Madrid managed to sign Kylian Mbappe for half of what they would have had to pay in 2022.

West Ham lead Aston Villa in the race to sign former Chelsea youngster Tammy Abraham.

Arsenal are interested in a new striker after being snubbed by Benjamin Sesko.

To sign him, they have transfer-listed one of their most high-profile players.

Sesko's decision to reject Arsenal reportedly left them shocked.

The Slovenian sent Arsenal a message after extending his Leipzig contract.

Worryingly for Arsenal, Sesko wasn't the only target to rebuff the Gunners.

Finally, one of Aston Villa's biggest stars has offered himself to Barcelona.
