Transfer Talk: Chelsea set to offload stars to make room for Haaland
Reports in Germany suggest Chelsea may offload Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham and Hakim Ziyech to clear the way for the arrival of Erling Haaland.
The Borussia Dortmund star, 20, has also been linked with Manchester City and Manchester United, while his agent Mino Raiola is believed to have held talks with Barcelona and Real Madrid officials back in April.
But Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reportedly sanctioned a big-money move for the striker, who was absent from Dortmund's fitness camp yesterday.
United Real keen on Varane
Manchester United are negotiating personal terms with Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane, claim Sky Sports.
If the 28-year-old centre-back can agree a deal, United will open talks with Madrid over a fee.
But big-spending Paris Saint-Germain are also believed to be in talks with Varane, which could price United out of the equation.
Varane has a year left on his Real Madrid contract and the Red Devils are keen to negotiate a lower fee knowing he will be free to sign a pre-contract agreement in January.
Canaries land Lees-Melou

Small set for Goodison exit?
According to The Athletic, Everton youngster Thierry Small could be on the move after reportedly failing to report for training.
The highly-rated full-back, 16, is believed to be intent on securing a switch despite the fact the Toffees have prepared a 'bumper' first professional contract for him to sign on August 1.
At 16 years and 176 days, Small became the club's youngest player to make a senior appearance when he came on as a late substitute in the FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday last season.
