Sadio Mane has been lined up as his replacement at the Allianz Arena, although the Liverpool forward has reportedly NOT asked to leave Anfield despite claims to the contrary.

Over at Manchester United, Erik Ten Hag could be handed a war-chest of around £ 120m as he attempts what surely has to be quite the rebuild. Jurrien Timber and Darwin Nunes are targets.

The biggest move on the continent is expected to see Aurélien Tchouaméni join Real Madrid for around £ 75m.
