The Premier League is well underway, and the end of the transfer window is fast approaching.

Despite reported interest from Arsenal, Marco Asensio is set to receive a salary increase when he signs a new contract with Real Madrid, going from €3.5m-a-season to €4.5m after-tax. The new contract will also include a €500m (£458.6m) release clause and will run to 2023. (Marca)

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has spoken out about Barcelona’s pursuit of Borussia Dortmund striker Ousmane Dembele. “If BVB receives 120, 130 or 150m,” he says. “Then Dortmund is the winner and not the player, but it can’t be the player who determines the price. I do not have respect for the club [Barcelona] anymore, to lead a player to break a contract, this is the lowest class.” (Bild)
