Chelsea are set to block Manchester United's move for Christian Pulisic.

The struggling Red Devils, who have lost their opening two Premier League games, are desperate for fresh faces before the transfer window closes. 

But while Pulisic is keen to leave Stamford Bridge to secure regular football ahead of the World Cup, the Blues are unwilling to let the American join one of their top-flight rivals. 

And according to various sources, any offer United make to take the attacker on loan will be rebuffed. 

Newcastle also hold an interest in Pulisic, 23, and his Chelsea team-mates Armando Broja, Conor Gallagher and Callum Hudson-Odoi.

Striker Broja, 20, and midfielder Gallagher, 22, have both made two appearances from the bench so far this season but Hudson-Odoi has yet to be handed any minutes by boss Thomas Tuchel. 

You can't Nab Keita yet

The Mail claim Liverpool have no intention of letting Naby Keita leave before the transfer window closes. 

Amid interest from RB Leipzig, the 27-year-old midfielder is said to be considering his future after contract talks stalled.

"The board have said to me there's no need to sell players. We want to keep improving but to do that we have to keep our best players."
