11.30 a.m. Manchester United's top officials do not trust Jose Mourinho's trial when it comes to signings, according to Perry Groves.

He said: "They do not trust José Mourinho's judgment on the players.

"When did you hear about Manchester United, oh, no, we're not going to buy it because it does not have a sales commission."

"I can not remember that they did that with Robin van Persie when he was 30, and Sir Alex Ferguson said, 'We need him, it does not matter if it's one or two seasons, he'll win us the league', which He did .

"They had the opportunity to sign Yerry Mina, but then Man United said," Oh, we're not paying the extorted agent's fee. "

"But they did not say that about Paul Pogba with Mino Raiola: they did not bother paying him a fortune in agent fees!

"Now there is an even bigger chasm between Ed Woodward and Mourinho."

9 a.m. Liverpool withdrew from an agreement to sign Lyon star Nabil Fekir because they did not want to bet on his knee problems.

Fekir was strongly related to a move to Chelsea towards the end of the transfer window, while there were suggestions that Liverpool had rekindled his interest.

But according to Liverpool Echo, the Merseyside team had no intention of pursuing their previous interest.

The report states that Liverpool was concerned about offering Fekir a five-year contract worth £ 100,000 per week amid constant fear of injuries.

7 am. Chelsea is close to agreeing an agreement for Tiemoue Bakayoko to join AC Milan on a one-season loan.

Bakayoko joined the Monaco Blues last summer for £ 40 million and started 25 Premier League matches.

But the 23-year-old struggled to adapt to the rhythm and physicality of the English game.

And Bakayoko is ready to be grown on loan to AC Milan later today, according to the Mirror.

6 am. According to reports, Barcelona refused to inform Ousmane Dembele of Arsenal's attempts to recruit him on the transfer deadline.

Despite reports to the contrary from respected journalists, RAC1 says that Arsenal made a serious offer to sign Dembele.

According to reports, the Gunners offered 9 million pounds sterling to take the loan end to next season.

It would have returned to Arsenal another £ 80 million to make the agreement permanent a year later.

But Barcelona was convinced that Dembele would not be interested in the movement, so he decided not to inform the player.

9.30 p.m. Unai Emery has admitted that Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell are free to leave Arsenal.

"Yesterday, the window closed here in the Premier League," he said at a press conference. "Today we had a meeting with the players to close all the possibilities of leaving or coming with more players, we only have three players: Carl Jenkinson, David Ospina and Joel Campbell, with the possibility of leaving.

"But the other players are with us and we are going to work in the Emirates the day before the game with all the players.

"Only two young players will go today to play tomorrow with the under-23s against Manchester City, they are Emile Smith Rowe and Eddie Nketiah.

"The others are with us and tomorrow we will decide the group to go to the hotel and also the first 11 and the first 18 players."

21:00: Gary Neville criticized Manchester United for not signing Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham.

"You think of Alderweireld, which to me seemed a certainty that Manchester United would sign Alderweireld," said the former right-back on Sky Sports.

"It's not too much at £ 50 million because ultimately, you just have to get the players in. That's the main thing, getting players."

Neville went on to criticize the United board for not having backed Mourinho and having signed a defender who so desired.

"José Mourinho was brought here to win, you can not build three quarters of a house and then stop," he added.

"You have to finish the house, you have to go with that."

"You can not go back and think" I'm changing my mind ", you've gone too far.

"The club, since David Moyes was fired, has been in a roundabout and has been reacting to things instead of going with a long-term strategy.

"José Mourinho is a great manager, one of the best managers in the world in the last 15 years and he will go down in history, you have to back him up all the way.

"At this moment it seems to me that the board has retired a little."

8 p.m. Chelsea striker Michy Batshuayi has joined Valencia on a one-season loan.

The Belgian international spent the second half of the last term with Borussia Dortmund.

"But he is very young, I hope he can improve very fast, at the moment, he is not Courtois, of course, but I am very happy that he and Mateo Kovacic enter.

"Courtois' situation was clear, he wanted to go to Madrid.

"So maybe we lost one of the most important goalkeepers in the world, but we bought a young goalkeeper, I think he's one of the most important goalkeepers in Europe, so I'm very happy.

"He's a very technical player and he likes to play between the lines, for us that could be very important."

"He's such an extraordinary kid, honestly, if you could bottle the character and the spirit, yours would be sold all over the world, it's incredibly positive and full of energy."
