KANT BELIEVE IT
Manchester United have made a shock enquiry for N'Golo Kante, reports the Mirror via Sport Lens.
With the Blues having spent £200m this transfer window, they would reportedly be willing to offload the Frenchman for the right price.
Kante also commands £300,000-a-week in wages, which the Blues would be relatively happy to get off their books.
And the Red Devils are already said to have made contact with Kante's advisors, with boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer being a big admirer of the World Cup winner.
However, Kante is currently said to be reluctant to leave Chelsea.
MORNING, RED DEVILS
Man Utd could allow winger Dan James to leave the club on loan if they manage to secure the signing of top target, Jadon Sancho.
James currently plays second fiddle to superstar in the making Mason Greenwood, and could leave the club to improve his first team opportunities.
United are also looking at alternative options if they cannot prise Sancho from the hands of his current club Borussia Dortmund.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to improve his squad defensively with a move for Porto’s Alex Telles believed to be close.
The left-back would provide some much needed quality and consistency in a position which has failed to be filled by the likes of Luke Shaw.
Solskjaer has also had to back United star Paul Pogba after the French midfielder dropped a disasterclass in the sides 3-2 win away to Brighton.
The United boss said: “He missed a lot of pre-season because of his illness. He's not had internationals or the friendly against Villa.
“The two 65 minutes he's had will help him along and he'll just get better and better.”
Long standing club servant Chris Smalling is also set to leave the club in the transfer window, with Inter Milan believed to be interested in signing the central defender.
Smalling impressed in Italy last season whilst on loan at Roma.

Watch back today's 3-2 win away to Brighton which ended in circumstances which haven't really been seen before!
Manchester United fans spotted Alex Telles liking United legend Patrice Evra's instagram post!
Paul Pogba had an afternoon to forget after dropping an absolute disasterclass.
INTER EYE SMALLING
According to reports, Chris Smalling is now a target to Serie A outfit Inter Milan.
Smalling spent last season on loan at Italian giants Roma, where he left a good impression leading to Roma trying to sign the player on a full time basis.
Roma's attempts however, were unsuccessful and the player remains on the market, open for any possible suitors.
The Nerazzurri are coming to terms with the possibility of losing Milan Skriniar this summer, with Jose Mourinho's Tottenham believed to be closing in on a deal.
Smalling, 30, is a Inter target if the deal to sell Skriniar goes through.
GOOD GUY MARCUS
Marcus Rashford is continuing to use his platform for good as he continues to apply pressure on the UK Government when it comes to child poverty.
The decision to give Manchester United a penalty after the final whistle went, left football fans scratching their heads.
Football fans have however, seen the funnier side to this afternoons events.
Bruno Fernandes scored a dramatic last minute penalty to take all three points back to Manchester.
Speaking to BT Sport after his side secured a 3-2 win away to Brighton, Bruno said: “It was a very difficult game. We know that Brighton are a very good team with good qualities, We left so much space for them to play, we were not as aggressive as I want.
“We gave away two goals, on the penalty I can do much better, I need to stop earlier. Second goal, we need to do much better.
“We did some mistakes but big teams need to be like that, we need to believe until the end.”
GOAL POST DIG
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hilariously trolled Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho after his sides 3-2 win against Brighton on the South Coast.
Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Solskjaer said: “We got away with one. Maybe one point we deserved, we didn't deserve more. But the character deserved more.
“Last season we had too many draws, so that is a big plus for us. You have to be happy Jose is not here to measure the goal posts.”
OLE DEFENDS POGBA
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defended midfielder Paul Pogba after his dismal performance in their 3-2 away win at Brighton.
When being asked about his players performance, he said: “He missed a lot of pre-season because of his illness. He's not had internationals or the friendly against Villa.
“The two 65 minutes he's had will help him along and he'll just get better and better.”
Solskjaer will be hoping to get Pogba up to speed as they face a difficult next five fixtures, including matches against Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.
FERNANDES' MESSAGE TO FANS
Man Utd midfielder Bruno Fernandes, took to Instagram after scoring a dramatic last minute penalty to scrape past Brighton.

German side Augsburg send a cryptic tweet regarding Jadon Sancho and United fans are loving it!
LEEDS WANT JAMES
Leeds have reignited their interest in Man Utd winger Dan James one whole season after failing to sign the player on transfer deadline day in January 2019.
United are thought to be open to the possibility of loaning out James IF they can land their top target, Jadon Sancho.
James is currently back-up to rising academy star Mason Greenwood after going on a poor run of form for large parts of last season.
Quite fittingly, Marcus Rashford's incredible solo-strike was the 10,000th goal in Man United's long history.
The Manchester United boss has given his reaction to a crazy away day at Brighton.
Harry Maguire has taken to twitter to have his say on Manchester United's extraordinary win at Brighton.
Fair to say his tweet has a touch of understatement about it.
CAN YOU BELIEVE WHAT YOU HAVE SEEN?
Brighton looked to have an equaliser in the 95 minute but Fernandes has converted a penalty given by VAR – AFTER the ref blew the final whistle – in the 100th minute!
3-2 to United at full time. One of the most dramatic endings you've ever seen.

VAR is making its presence felt!
Rashford looked to have scored but he was denied by VAR!
Only minutes earlier, Brighton looked to have another pen after Pogba appeared to trip Connolly but VAR overturned it again.
A great first half comes to an end but Solskjaer will want to get his team inside and get them focused.
Maguire's equaliser means they go in level but United will have to show much more if they are to get three points off this very impressive Brighton side.

UNITED ARE LEVEL
Ole's team were behind for only a few minutes but now they're level!
It's 1-1 after a Fernandes free kick found Matic at the back post. He turned it back inside the six-yard box and there was Maguire for the tap in.

RED DEVILS BEHIND
Brighton are 1-0 up after an incredible panenka penalty from Neal Maupay.
Bruno Fernandes clumsily clipped the back of Tariq Lamptey heels and the Seagulls did not waste their chance from the spot.
United's performance has been lacking since the start and they deserve to be behind. Only minutes until half-time

KICK OFF NOW
It's only their second game of the season but there's already something of a “must-win” vibe surrounding Man United, such is the ridiculous pressure of modern day football.
Brighton will make tough opponents as their dismantling of Newcastle last week showed, so United will have to be on top form.
It doesn't help that the South Coast side have fielded an attacking line-up that will challenge the under-fire United defence.
