Jose Mourinho is monitoring the situation at Tottenham as he plots a path back into management, with Mauricio Pochettino’s men having endured a difficult start to the season, according to the Mail.

Speculation is mounting Pochettino is looking for an exit route from Spurs following a dismal start to the Premier League campaign for the Londoners.

A number of players at the club believe Pochettino is biding his time until he can quit Spurs.

Mourinho has been out of work since he was sacked by Manchester United last season.

Chelsea have put a £22million price tag on Michy Batshuayi as Crystal Palace eye a January transfer deal for the Belgium international, according to the Daily Express.

Manchester United are looking into the possibility of RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann succeeding Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford, says the Daily Mail.

Newcastle are hoping to lure Everton defender Lewis Gibson back to St James’ Park after Peter Beardsley’s departure, with the player having previously complained about the former Under-23s boss, who was handed 32-week suspension from all football-related activity last month after being found guilty of making racist comments, the Daily Mail reports.

The 58-year-old denied the allegations.

Lionel Messi feared Neymar was off to Real Madrid instead of Barcelona last summer

Neymar remains in Paris after a summer of speculation that put other historic transfer sagas to shame – but Lionel Messi admits he was certain he’d leave for Real Madrid if not Barcelona.

Neither Barcelona nor Real could agree to terms with Paris Saint-Germain for the Brazilian, with the Parisians standing pat on their valuation of a player they had bought for 222m two seasons ago.

Neymar was not shy in making his feelings known over the summer – PSG boss Thomas Tuchel went as far to concede ‘he tried everything in his power’ to leave the club.

A reunion with Messi and Luis Suarez looked almost certain at one point – but that dream could well have turned into a nightmare for the Blaugrana.

It is well known that Madrid president Florentino Perez has long admired Neymar’s talents and Messi had at one point feared he would be lining up against his fellow superstar attacker as a rival in El Clasico.

“I really thought Neymar would go to Real Madrid if he didn’t come here,” Messi said in an interview with RAC1.

“He really wanted to leave Paris and he’d shown it.

“And I thought that Florentino [Perez] and Real Madrid were going to do something to sign him.”

Harry Kane

There is speculation in several publications that Manchester United will look to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham in January.

The Red Devils have scored just 11 goals in all competitions this season – four of which came against Chelsea in their opening match.

In the same period, England striker Kane has scored 11 goals on his own for club and country.

Wilfried Zaha is to sue his agent over a failed transfer away from Crystal Palace in the summer, the Daily Mail reports.

Everton are weighing up a January move for reported Manchester United target Moussa Dembele, according to the Daily Star.

The 23-year-old former Celtic and Fulham striker could cost £40m to prise from Lyon.

Liverpool are set to receive just £4.5m of the £84m Barcelona still owe for Philippe Coutinho, the Daily Mirror says, citing reports in Spain.

Coutinho joined Bayern Munich on a season-long loan this summer with an option to make the move permanent.

Both Chelsea and Arsenal are interested in signing 17-year-old Anderlecht striker Jeremy Doku, The Sun reports.
