1. Manchester City are plotting a move to bring Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot back to the club when his contract runs out next summer.

Barcelona were reportedly interested in bringing Rabiot to the Nou Camp during the summer transfer window, but PSG were able to fend off interest as he enters the final 12 months of his contract in the French capital.
Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Chelsea and Juventus have all been linked with the talented 23-year-old as they look to get a free transfer over the line.
Now, according to the Daily Star, Pep Guardiola has entered the race to sign Rabiot and bring him back to the Etihad.
He spent a brief period in Manchester as a teenager but quickly returned to his native France after suffering from homesickness.
Rabiot is reportedly seeking £150k per week in wages and an £8m signing-on bonus, which makes him an attractive signing in financial terms given there would be no transfer fee involved.
2. Wolves ward off Manchester City by 'slapping a massive £110m price tag' on star midfielder Ruben Neves
Manchester City's pursuit of Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves has hit a stumbling block after the newly-promoted side quoted them a price of £110million.
Pep Guardiola is keen on a move for Neves as he looks to bolster his midfield numbers after a move for Jorginho collapsed in the summer, with the Italian going on to join Chelsea.

That has led to a short supply of defensive midfielders with Fernandinho the only first-team player trusted with anchoring the midfield at the Etihad Stadium.
Wolves' rich owners will not want to lose their prize asset though, especially in January when it would be tough to bring in an adequate replacement as they try to establish themselves in the top flight.
According to The Times, it now seems Wolves are trying to price City out of a move as they try to retain their Premier League status.
It is also claimed Neves would need persuading to leave the Midlands club because of his role in the team under manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
3. Wigan Athletic are interested in signing free agent centre-back Steven Caulker.
The one-time England international, who is still only 26, left Dundee in the summer and is yet to join a new club.
He has had interest from Arsenal Kiev, coached by Fabrizio Ravanelli, as well as another Championship side in Aston Villa.
Ambitious Wigan are chasing promotion but need to bolster their defensive options as Dan Burn is expected to return to Brighton in January.
Manager Paul Cook has maintained his side's momentum in the Championship following last season's promotion and wants a defender who is also confident on the ball.
They moved into the top three with a 1-0 win over Bristol City on Friday night, although they have played a game more than the teams around them.
Villa have also been looking at former West Ham defender James Collins.
