TRANSFER NEWS LIVE: Updates from Liverpool, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and the rest of Europe.

18:00: Real Madrid have offered Cristiano Ronaldo a £28.5m-a-year contract to snub Manchester United and stay in Spain.
However, it may not be enough to convince Ronaldo to keep loyal to the Bernabeu club.
Ronaldo supposedly wants an eye-watering £64m—a-year deal, or he will quit Real.
The La Liga giants will not countenance paying him that much but have structured an offer they reckon they can afford, claim Cadena COPE.
Yet the new contract would still see Ronaldo paid less than Lionel Messi – the man he insists he must earn more than.

16:20: Neymar wants to leave PSG for Real Madrid despite reports also linking him with a move to Manchester United.
That’s according to AS, who say the PSG star is keen to move to the Bernabeu.
However, he will not press for an exit amid fears he would upset the Ligue 1 giants’ hierarchy.
13:30: The French Football Federation’s president Noel Le Graet says Nabil Fekir’s move to Liverpool is still on.
He told Le Progres: “I saw him this morning for 15 minutes.
“He’s in the middle of negotiating, I think they will get it done.
“He was confident about it because the medical he underwent was positive.”
12:55: We are still awaiting confirmation from Liverpool that Nabil Fekir has signed for the club.
But the longer the wait the greater the worry that Liverpool may have pulled the plug on the deal.
Just to recap, Liverpool’s staff appear to have concerns with Fekir’s knee, which was injured in September 2015.
Fekir tore his ligaments when playing for France in a friendly with Portugal almost three years ago.
The playmaker was in visible pain when he limped off after just 14 minutes but did manage to recover before the end of the 2015/16 season.
12:25: Mario Gotze has revealed he is interested in playing for Liverpool.
The Borussia Dortmund star played under Jurgen Klopp during the German’s time in the Bundesliga.
He said: “I decided to leave Bayern and Jurgen Klopp was interested in getting me to Liverpool.
“And I was also interested in working with him again.
“It (the desire to play for him) still exists. He is a world class coach and that’s why it’s always an option.
“I decided to join Borussia Dortmund, but it was not a decision against Liverpool or Jurgen Klopp.”
11:40: Barcelona want to sign Sevilla star Clement Lenglet this summer – and Jasper Cillessen could be out.
Lenglet, 22, will be available for around £30m this summer as his release clause comes into effect.
Mundo Deportivo claim Cillessen will leave, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Napoli all keen on him.
However, Barcelona want a team to meet his £52m release clause.
And that may prove too steep for some sides.

11:10: Spurs’ young striker Reo Griffiths has signed a new contract at the club.
The 17-year-old was wanted at RB Leipzig after impressive in Tottenham’s youth teams in recent years.
He scored 33 goals for the U18s last season, catching the eye of Barcelona and Celtic as well.
But football.london claim Griffiths has signed a new deal with the north London club.
10:40: The latest reports coming out of Liverpool this morning is that Nabil Fekir’s move to Anfield is still on.
However, there are worries the Reds camp could actually pull the plug on the move.
Fekir had a medical at Liverpool on Friday, where a knee problem was discovered.
He has already gone through his promotional photo-shoot and Liverpool’s media team are ready to announce the deal.
But there are concerns this knee problem could ruin the £53million transfer.

10:20: Cristiano Ronaldo is so keen to join Manchester United he may even test Jose Mourinho’s resolve to get a move.
United are understood to be interested in Ronaldo but prefer a deal for his Team Madrid team-mate Gareth Bale.
The MEN claim Ronaldo is hoping to push for a move back to Old Trafford after deciding to quit Real Madrid.
But Mourinho may need convincing that spending north of £100m on the 33-year-old is a suitable investment.
10:00: Arsenal have agreed a £16m deal with Borussia Dortmund for Sokratis Papastathopoulos.
The Gunners are expected to announce Papastathopoulos’ arrival next week.
The defender is likely to sign a three-year contract at the Emirates as new manager Unai Emery continues his summer spending.
Papastathopoulos, 29, had just one year remaining on his Dortmund contract, meaning Arsenal could prise him away for a bargain fee.

Transfer news LIVE: Willian (right) looks set to leave Chelsea
09:30: Chelsea are almost certainly set to offload winger Willian this summer.
That is according to South American football expert Tim Vickery.
He told Sky Sports’ Transfer Talk podcast: “It seems very clear that this will be Willian’s last World Cup. He’s desperate to make an impression for his national team and to make a statement to his club manager.
“Unless there are changes at Chelsea, you can certainly see him moving on. He’s said in the past he wouldn’t be adverse to a big money move to China.
“The World Cup will serve to put him in the shop window.”
