12.30pm: More on Manchester City’s refusal to sell Sergio Aguero.
Chairman Khaldon Al Mubarak said: “Is Aguero staying? Absolutely. There’s never been a doubt about that. I’ve read a lot of the speculation on this and it’s ridiculous,” he said.
“Sergio Aguero is one of the best players in the world. We are a team that aspires to win every competition we compete in.
"Having Sergio Aguero as part of the squad is an absolute must. It has never been in doubt.”
12.25pm: Thomas Tuchel, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal in the past, has just LEFT Borussia Dortmund.

11.30am: The bookies have U-turned!
Diego Costa was 1/5 to be playing his last game at Wembley on Saturday – but odds now show Spaniard is set to stay.
Betway’s Alan Alger said: “The odds suggest Diego Costa’s much-touted move to China could be called off. The Spaniard was as short as 1/5 before the FA Cup final to head east, but the betting has shifted dramatically over the last 24 hours with Costa now odds-on at 4/6 to remain a Chelsea player.
“China isn’t out of the picture at 9/4, although the odds for that move have been steadily drifting, and there’s been plenty of interest in a return to Atletico at 5/2.”
11.13am: Manchester City will NOT sell Sergio Aguero this summer.

Aguero’s future at the Etihad is in doubt following Gabriel Jesus’ arrival in January.

11.10am: Saul Niguez has claimed Atletico Madrid can cope if Antoine Griezmann should choose to join Manchester United.

"If he leaves we have [Fernando] Torres, [Kevin] Gameiro, [Angel] Correa and [Yannick] Carrasco.
"He is a very important player for us, we know the quality he has, but most importantly no one player is above the club."
11.05am: AC Milan are preparing a massive £52million bid to sign Chelsea and Manchester United target Alvaro Morata.
Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport claim Milan are determined to land a marquee singing this summer.
Morata impressed during his two-year stint at Juventus before heading back to Real Madrid.
Express Sport understands Chelsea want to sign the striker, while United are also interested if he becomes available.
But Milan are hoping to plunder the Bernabeu before the Premier League duo get their act together.
10.55am: Morgan Schneiderlin says he’s settled on Merseyside following his January move to Everton – and the French international midfielder is hoping the side can improve to seal a top-four finish in the Premier League next season.
"I'm very happy to be here, very happy to come in every day and happy, to find the joy on my face again, to play week in and week out and, most importantly, have good games," Schneiderlin said.
"I think that's what I did, even if I know myself that I can be even better and improve… That's my main focus and I want to improve and help this team to be in the top four."
Real Madrid could sell Alvaro Morata to Milan
10.30am: Moussa Sissoko has demanded crunch talks with Mauricio Pochettino about his future at Tottenham.
"I would like him to communicate better," Sissoko told French newspaper L'Equipe.
"I want a completely honest conversation to see what they plan to do, what they are seeing in terms of my future.
"The idea is to be clear very early to allow, if I need to leave, for my agent to do good work."
10.10am: Diego Costa has called on Chelsea to sign Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.
“I do not know – that’s a decision for the club,” he said when asked about a deal for the Toffees striker.
“Of course Lukaku is a very big player who played an impressive season. I hope he can sign at Chelsea because it’s a unique club.
“He is a big player and has an impressive future for himself. The past matches have proven that he has quality and scoring ability.
“He is a boy who will take great steps. Hopefully he will continue to grow – he has all the qualities to stay here. (Mickey) Batshuayi may stay because he’s young and I could be leaving.”
10.05am: Liverpool have signed youngster Dal Varesanovic to a professional contract.
Varesanovic, 16, is rated as one of the top players in Liverpool’s academy.
There was an agreement in place that once Varesanovic came of age he could head to Liverpool and pen professional terms.
Varesanovic is an attacking midfielder and joins Liverpool from FC Sarajevo.
Arsenal want to sign Pablo Fornals
10.00am: Malaga duo Sandro Ramirez and Pablo Fornals are ‘serious’ Arsenal transfer targets, according to the Daily Mail.
Sandro scored 16 goals in 31 games this season and has a buy-out clause of just £5million.
Meanwhile, Fornals is viewed as the long-term replacement for Santi Cazorla.
9.47am: Josh Harrop could be on his way out of Manchester United.
Harrop, 21, scored on his Old Trafford debut against Crystal Palace this month.
But a lack of opportunities at the club – and Jose Mourinho’s plans to sign strikers this summer – means he may leave in the search of more game time.
Football League World claim Wigan are leading the race to sign the youngster.
A loan agreement could be struck, with Wigan seeking new players following their relegation to League One.
Luciano Spalletti has quit Roma and is favourite for the Inter Milan role
9.30am: BOURNEMOUTH MEDICAL FOR CHELSEA PLAYER
Chelsea are set to sell Asmir Begovic to Bournemouth in a £15million deal.
Chelsea almost let Begovic leave the club in January but failed to find a replacement.
The goalkeeper doesn’t want another season playing second choice to Thibaut Courtois.
And the Daily Mail claim a deal with Bournemouth has been struck.
According to the report, Begovic will have a medical at Dean Court this week.
8.50am: Luciano Spalletti’s confirmed exit from Roma is good news for Chelsea.
Inter Milan have Spalletti and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte on their list of potential candidates for the vacant job at the San Siro.
Conte has been approached and Chelsea are working hard to keep the Italian at the club.
But Inter will likely now turn to Spalletti, who has left Roma after refusing to pen a new contract.
It means Chelsea and Conte can now likely get to work on preparations for pre-season, with the transfer window opening in just over a month’s time.
