The Premier League's transfer window will close on Thursday evening and English football is set for a hectic few hours as it approaches its deadline.
Real Madrid are keeping a watchful eye on events, particularly as Christian Eriksen nears a move from Tottenham to Manchester United.
If the Dane gets his transfer over the line in time, then the door could be opened for Paul Pogba to leave Old Trafford.
According to ESPN, and confirmed by MARCA, United are closing in on the signing of Eriksen and Spurs have resumed negotiations with Real Betis for Giovani Lo Celso.
Spurs' efforts to bring in the Argentine could impact on Eriksen's position, though they have now also been offered Philippe Coutinho by Barcelona.
United's problem, however, is that Spurs may still prefer to sell their playmaker to an overseas team, in order to avoid him being a threat to them next season and both Madrid clubs have shown some interest at points this summer.
Nevertheless, Pogba's future does not need to be decided by Thursday, as English clubs can still sell players after their registration deadline, and Spain's window remains open until September 2.
Not everything would be straightforward though. The Red Devils would still be asking for in excess of 150 million euros for the World Cup winner, which Los Blancos would want to lower considerably.
Their willingness to negotiate could increase if they manage to complete deals for Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Bruno Fernandes, as well as the Danish international.
As for Spurs, Paulo Dybala is in talks to move to London after turning down United.
