Cristiano Ronaldo ‘offered £230,000-a-week by Man City, Harry Kane fined two weeks wages, Kounde Chelsea transfer update

HARRY KANE has taken to Twitter to confirm he will be STAYING at Tottenham.

But it has emerged that the England captain was fined two weeks wages for returning late from his summer holiday, even though he thought the club had given him the all-clear to extend the trip.

Man City were willing to offer Spurs their pick of five players – Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez, Aymeric Laporte or Gabriel Jesus in exchange for Kane – but will now turn their attention elsewhere.

And their top target could be Cristiano Ronaldo, who they have reportedly offered a two-year deal worth £230,000-a-week.

However, City do not want to pay a transfer fee or offer Juventus Gabriel Jesus in exchange, in what could be a potential stumbling block to the move.

  • BRUY OH BRUY

    Manchester City will be without Kevin De Bruyne against Arsenal on Saturday after the midfielder failed to shake off an ankle injury.

    The Belgian has had little luck with injuries of late, having been forced out of the Champions League final before battling a fresh blow at Euro 2020.

    The ankle problem he picked up in the summer has not gone and national team boss Roberto Martinez hasn’t called De Bruyne up to his latest squad.

    And the manager ruled the 30-year-old out of City’s weekend game when confirming the decision.

    Martinez told reporters on Thursday: “Kevin is not available. He played a few minutes against Tottenham, but was sore afterwards.

    “He won’t play this weekend – and then his progress will be looked at.”

  • KANE PAIN

    Manchester City were reportedly so desperate to sign Harry Kane that they offered Tottenham a bunch of their stars to seal the deal.

    It’s believed the Prem champions tried to entice Spurs with Gabriel Jesus, Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez.

    And according to The Athletic, this was one of several bids City made this summer to land the 28-year-old striker.

    The Manchester club reportedly made their final bid for Kane in June, offering £75million plus £25m in add-ons.

    City were prepared to increase their offer to £100m plus £20m in add-ons but Spurs chief Daniel Levy had slammed the negotiating door shut.

  • NEW KOUNDE BID

    Chelsea are preparing a new €60million offer for Sevilla defender Jules Kounde, according to Sport Italia.

    The European champions are set to raise more funds for the French defender by selling Kurt Zouma to London rivals West Ham.

    Sevilla have already rejected an offer for Kounde.

  • HAAL IN

    Man Utd have reportedly decided Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland is their No1 transfer target.

    The Red Devils are on the hunt for a new striker to succeed veteran Edinson Cavani, whose contract expires next summer.

    And according to the Manchester Evening News, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and football director John Murtough have ‘mutually’ agreed on Haaland as their preferred option.

  • ADAMA DRAMA

    Tottenham’s efforts to sign Adama Traore could hit the buffers amid a reported dispute concerning details surrounding the deal.

    Spanish outlet AS claims negotiations between the clubs have hit a brick wall despite them reaching an agreement over a £40million price.

    Traore, 25, is thought to be among the players on Nuno Espirito Santos’ transfer shortlist along with Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

    Tottenham, who play Watford next, are thought to be keen on signing Traore on loan with an option to buy.

    But AS via Sport Witness claim the Molineux side desire a straight transfer of the player for their requested asking price.

  • YOU-TURN

    Arsenal supporters loudly chanted ‘Arsenal Fan TV, get out of our club’ at the end of their League Cup victory against West Brom.

    A large section of the travelling Gunners shouted and pointed towards those involved in the controversial YouTube channel after the 6-0 win.

    Arsenal fans were in fine voice throughout the evening as they backed manager Mikel Arteta and his players in a dominant performance.

    But at the end of the game, a large section of supporters began singing: “Arsenal Fan TV, get out of our club.”

    Many of these fans were pointing in the direction of those who contribute to the divisive YouTube channel, officially known as AFTV.

  • ZOUM-ING TO EAST LONDON

    Kurt Zouma will undergo a medical in Paris today before completing a £26million move from Chelsea to West Ham.

    The late problems caused by agents has been resolved and the Hammers are confident of wrapping up the deal for the French international defender by the weekend.

    A five-year deal has been agreed with the centre-back which is likely to see him become the highest paid player at West Ham as David Moyes finally gets the player he has targeted all summer.

    Zouma has been back in France this week for personal reasons, meaning he would be subjected to a ten-day quarantine on his return to the UK unless he has been doubled vaccinated against Covid-19.

    But the Hammers are relaxed about the situation because of the impending international break, with preparations already a long way down the line for Moyes for Saturday’s clash with Crystal Palace.

  • MCTOMINAY UNDERGOES SURGERY

    Scott McTominay faces a spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on a groin problem.

    Man Utd haven’t confirmed how long the Scotland international will be out for, although he will miss the match against Wolves on Sunday.

    The club have confirmed: “Scott has undergone surgery for an ongoing groin injury that was causing significant pain when playing.

    “Having tried all other treatment options in pre-season, surgery was deemed necessary to resolve the issue.

    “We hope to have him back soon.”

  • AUBA THE SLUMP

    Mikel Arteta insists it is no coincidence that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is back to his best following the return of the fans.

    Gunners captain Auba scored a Carabao Cup hat-trick to secure his team’s first win of the season.

    The manager said: “Auba is a happy character and he needs that connection with the fans so to have them back is really positive for him.

    “I said that the leadership and solutions to win matches has to come from the senior players and this was a good example.

    “This result will give us a lot of confidence but I am most pleased with the spirit and togetherness that we could share with our supporters.

    “We had some players that needed minutes and with the players we had available tonight it was best for us to have Auba up front leading the attack.”

    According to The Times, the England captain is currently discussing an improved contract at Spurs.

  • MAN UTD LATEST

    Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has all-but-confirmed that Manchester United’s transfer business this summer is finished.

    Solskjaer told journalist Arilas Ould-Saada: “I don’t think much is going to happen. If something happens, it’s a bonus.

    “You never know what happens in the world of football. But we’ve had a very good window. I’m happy with what we’ve done.”

    According to transfer specialist Duncan Castles, United are considering a move for the teenage midfielder before the end of the window.

    Camavinga, 18, has one year left on his Rennes contract.

    United are also believed to be interested in Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, 21, but not Atletico Madrid ace Saul Niguez.

  • YOUR MOVE

    Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers hopes the club are close to agreeing a new contract with Foxes FA Cup hero Youri Tielemans.

    Liverpool have an interest in Tielemans, 24 – but Rodgers is in no mood to sell to his former club and says the player is in talks to stay.

    Now Tielemans is in talks with director of football Jon Rudkin over a fresh King Power deal – worth £100,00 a week.

    Rodgers said: “Jon Rudkin is meeting with his representatives… I’d love him to re-sign here and extend his time.”

  • HE’S THE RON

    Manchester City have reportedly offered Cristiano Ronaldo a two-year contract after missing out on Harry Kane.

    But rumours suggest the English champs don’t want to pay a transfer fee for the 36-year-old forward – a legend at rivals Manchester United.

    According to Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, City are offering to pay Ronaldo around £230,000-a-week.

    And it’s believed the English club want to keep fellow forward Gabriel Jesus – despite earlier reports suggesting a swap deal could be possible.

  • FER WARNING

    Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has tipped Arsenal to scrape a top-half finish in the Premier League this season after their horror start.

    “I think you will finish ninth. Let me look at the league table right now, you’re 19th right now.

    “Brighton would bang up Arsenal right now! Brighton would be a problem for you lot!”

  • LEAGUES APART

    Liverpool will find out their Champions League group stage opponents when the draw is made on Thursday.

    But what are the best and worst scenarios?

    A group of Bayern, Porto and AC Milan would present Jurgen Klopp’s men with a terribly daunting task so early on in the competition.

    The Merseyside club would undoubtedly prefer to see the likes of Sporting Lisbon, FC Salzburg and Malmo drawn in their group.

  • BAK FOR GOOD

    AC Milan are on the verge of re-signing Tiemoue Bakayoko on loan from Chelsea, according to reports.

    The midfielder hasn’t played for the Blues competitively since May 2018, spending time on loan at Milan, Monaco and Napoli.

    And he is reportedly set to return to the former – despite having his Chelsea contract extended.

    Originally set to expire next summer, the Blues have used an option to extend the deal by another year.

    But according to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, they have no intention of reintegrating the Frenchman into the first-team squad.

  • PHIL JONES LATEST

    Manchester United defender Phil Jones could still leave Old Trafford before the transfer deadline following interest from Championship club Fulham.

    According to 90min, Fulham are among a handful of Championship teams considering a move for Jones.

    The most likely scenario would be a loan – with United still paying the majority of his wages – but it could give him regular playing time.

    Jones hasn’t played competitive football for the Red Devils since January 2020, with Newcastle and Watford also thought to be keen.

  • MESS-ED UP

    Lionel Messi no longer plays in one of Europe’s top-five leagues after Ligue 1 was overtaken by Portugal’s top flight.

    Messi is yet to make his debut but the move has seen him drop out of the so-called big five due to the recent changes in the Uefa coefficient system.

    The points-based rankings take into consideration the results from each team in the European countries in Uefa club competitions.

    And this week’s Champions League qualifiers have tipped the balance in the favour of the Primeira Liga.

    Benfica beat PSV on penalties on Tuesday night which was enough for Portugal to lead France by just 0.05 coefficient points on 42.217 to 42.167.

    And then on Wednesday, Monaco lost their shootout with Shakhtar Donetsk after a 2-2 draw to further hinder Ligue 1’s ranking.
