The summer transfer window is heating up as managers eye new recruits to strengthen their squads. Harry Kane is still intent on leaving Tottenham, with the likes of Manchester CityManchester United, and Chelsea all interested.

Real Madrid have filled their vacant managerial spot by bringing back Carlo Ancelotti, who spent the last season with Everton.

Liverpool have already made their move in the market by signing RB Leipzig defender Ibrahima Konate, and will be looking to bring in a few more reinforcements too. United have gone ahead and brought in Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, while many other top clubs are being linked with big names.

With that, here are the top transfer rumours of the day.


United urged to sign Kane

Gary Neville believes Manchester United should make a swoop for Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer as he claimed the arrivals of Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane won't be enough to secure the Premier League title this season.

"I still think they'll be short," the ex-defender stated on Sky Sports. "Chelsea have strengthened with Lukaku, Man City [have gone] in for Grealish and if they get Kane, there's a massive problem for Man Utd. If Harry Kane entered Man Utd you get to 94, 95 points, [and] they still have to replace Cavani and Martial. Why not get the man now? I don't know if they can win the league with Sancho and Varane."


PSG line up Mbappe replacement

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly considering selling Kylian Mbappe this summer and have already lined up a potential replacement for him.

According to RMC Sport, Mauricio Pochettino's side are considering bringing in Everton forward, Richarlison, if Mbappe does leave in the next two weeks. PSG have reportedly already contacted the Brazilian's agents, and the fact he is a friend of Neymar could significantly aid the club in negotiations.


United and PSG handed Camavinga boost

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly been handed a boost in their pursuit of Rennes' star Eduardo Camavinga, with the club naming their asking price for the highly-rated midfielder.

According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Camavinga will not sign a long-term contract at Rennes this summer, meaning they might be forced to part ways with him during the ongoing transfer window, rather than risk losing him for free next year.


Chelsea offered Saul Niguez

Chelsea have reportedly been offered Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez on loan as Thomas Tuchel considers bringing in another new addition, according to Goal.

The 26-year-old has a €150m release clause, and has been linked with a move to Liverpool in the past. However, the report claims that Chelsea could negotiate a reduced option to buy at around €45m, should they push ahead with a loan move.
