15:50 UPDATE: Manchester United announcement

Manchester United have announced Scott McTominay has signed a new contact.

The new deal will run until 2023 and he may now not be loaned out this winter, with Marouane Fellaini’s injury meaning McTominay could get a chance in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

“Manchester United has been my life since the age of five and playing for the club I’ve always supported is all I’ve ever wanted to do,” he said.

“I’m still young and I’m learning all the time from the manager, his coaching staff and from the world-class players in the squad. I can’t wait to continue my progress at this great club.”

15:30 UPDATE: Real Madrid deal?

Jose Mourinho has already made his first signing as Real Madrid manager – even though he isn’t their boss yet!

That is according to Le 10 Sport, who claim Eder Militao agreeing to join Real from Porto is a sign that Mourinho has already been working on deals.

Mourinho was said to be interested in Militao when he was manager of Manchester United.

And the 55-year-old could end up working with the Brazil international if Mourinho secures his return to the Bernabeu.

15:20 UPDATE: Chelsea Higuain deal set

Chelsea have a deal in place to sign Gonzalo Higuain from Juventus – and Express Sport understands the transfer will take place on Tuesday.

All being well Higuain will be included in Chelsea’s squad by Tuesday and he could make his debut against Tottenham on Thursday in the EFL Cup.

15:00 UPDATE: Real want Arsenal target at Tottenham

Arsenal want the sign James Rodriguez on loan – but Real Madrid hope to sen him to Tottenham, reckon the Independent.

Colombian forward Rodriguez has struggled over his two-year real at Bayern Munich on loan from Real Madrid.

Real don’t want the 27-year-old and Bayern are open to letting him go.

The report claims Arsenal could come in for the playmaker but Real would prefer him to move to Spurs, as part of a sweetener to them landing Christian Eriksen.

14:45 UPDATE: Liverpool inadvertently block Man Utd deal

Liverpool have inadvertently helped frustrate Manchester United’s future transfer plans – because the wife of a Red Devils target supports the Reds.

Belgian defender Bjorn Engels plays for Stade Reims and is keen to move to the Premier League, with Arsenal his dream club.

And he told L’Equipe a switch to Old Trafford has been ruled out already.

“I’ve been there a couple of times in the past, maybe next time is the right one. Arsenal? It would be a dream,” he said. “She’s [my wife] from Liverpool and all her family is a fan of the Reds. When Everton were interested in me, she said to me laughing: Everton is ok, but never Man United!”

14:30 UPDATE: Leeds in Mings battle

Leeds United are interested in signing Bournemouth flop Tyrone Mings, reports claim.

Mings, 25, has managed just seven appearances for the Cherries this season.

He cost £8m back in 2015 but now looks set to exit the club – possibly on loan.
