5Times brings you the latest gossip on football transfers today from around the globe…

  • If England captain Harry Kane, 30, decides to return to the Premier League, Tottenham’s buy-back clause is said to only grant them a first refusal rather than establishing a transfer cost. Kane’s ability to cooperate with chairman Daniel Levy will likely determine whether he decides to return to Spurs.
  • Son Heung-min, a 31-year-old forward from South Korea, may extend his stay in north London through 2025 with a new contract from Spurs. 
  • Ares Management, a US-based investment company, will provide Chelsea with £400 million to go toward their new stadium and other initiatives. The investment will also assist the Blues in becoming a multi-club organisation and lower the Stamford Bridge payroll.
  • Jadon Sancho, a 23-year-old winger for Manchester United and England, is not wanted by Borussia Dortmund. 
  • The Premier League debut of United hasn’t done much to persuade potential purchasers Sir Jim Ratcliffe or Sheikh Jassim to lower the discrepancy between their estimates and the Glazers’ asking price for the club. 
  • If Egyptian striker Mohamed Salah, 31, departs the club in January, Liverpool is eager to sign Real Madrid and Brazil winger Rodrygo.
  • Joao Palhinha, a 28-year-old midfielder for Fulham and Portugal, does not have a release clause in his new contract, giving the Cottagers the option to demand a greater sum should Bayern Munich reopen negotiations after a deadline-day deal fell through. 
  • Valentin Barco, a left-back for Boca Juniors and Argentina, might be signed by Manchester City in January for about £15 million. 
  • Midfielder Divine Mukasa, 16, of the England Under-17 team, is also expected to join City from West Ham. 
  • Oscar Bobb, a 20-year-old striker from Norway, had loan proposals rejected by Manchester City from Ajax and Porto.
  • Hugo Ekitike, 21, of Paris St. Germain is ready to battle for his place with the French champions, but the forward is aware that many Premier League teams, including Crystal Palace, Brentford, Everton, West Ham United, and Wolves, are interested in signing him.
