Time waits for nobody, and with less than three days left for the Premier League’s transfer window to slam shut, the drama has finally hit it's peak. The other four leagues are still taking their time, but with less than a month left, it’s time to start panicking and dig into a few juicy sagas.

Leroy Sane determined to leave Manchester City

He limped off after a mere 15 minutes in the Community Shield and that did nothing but spark rumors that Sane was faking the injury. Then came the photoshopped photos all showing how angry Sane was at Pep, but now it looks like things might be over. Reliable-ish German outlet Kicker has reported that Sane is determined to leave Etihad.

The report adds that the German has no intention of extending his contract with the English Champions, with Bayern also looking to sign his brother. Sidi Sane has also been linked with a move, so Bayern might get two for the price of a hundred.

Paris Saint-Germain step up a move for Paulo Dybala

Manchester United ended their interest in a move for Paulo “the next Messi” Dybala after he demanded the Old Trafford, the Black Pearl and a MIG as his wages, but PSG are offering him the world. The Parisians could lose Neymar or watch as Neymar goes on strike or simply gets injured again, which does leave them with no-one.

No-one barring Kylian Mbappe, Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria, Julian Draxler and a bunch of youth stars. That has seen Corriere dello Sport report that Dybala is now a target for the Ligue 1 Champs as they look for the next superstar looking to shed a five-time Ballon d’Or shadow.

Malcom could leave Zenit just days after signing for them

He snubbed AS Roma for the lure of Camp Nou, before being shipped out in unceremoniously by said Camp Nou. It wasn’t pretty to watch but at Zenit St Petersburg, the Brazilian gets a chance to restart what should be a blooming career. But that’s not what the Daily Mail reports, with it adding that Malcom could be forced out of the Russian side a mere three days after his move.

The Russia Premier League side are now looking to sell him in January, as they try and win back their so-called “not racist” fans.

Bordeaux and Stade Rennes in talks with Laurent Koscielny

Arsenal outcast and their last reliable defender Laurent Koscielny may finally get his wish to play in France once again over the prospect of ever putting on an Arsenal shirt. Reports have indicated that both Stade Rennes and Bordeaux are eyeing a move for the 33-year-old center-back, with Arsenal looking to offload him as soon as possible.

Liverpool and Manchester United sign Adrian and Harry Maguire respectively

Finally after months and months and months of the transfer window being open and being linked to all sorts of players, Manchester United and Liverpool have added new stars. While the Red Devils finally completed a six-year deal in the making for Harry Maguire all for a world-record sum. This comes just days after a report from the Daily Mail revealed that David Moyes was looking to sign him for £4 million.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have made their third move of the summer, but first senior move by replacing Simon Mignolet with Adrian. The former West Ham star joins the Reds for free, signing for an undisclosed amount of time.
