Chelsea have agreed personal terms with center back Nathan Ake, but have not agreed a fee with Man City. City are thought to have valued him about £40 million. He came out of the Blues academy but only made 17 appearances before he left for Bournemouth.

Two departures from Man U

Paul Pogba back to Juventus on a free

Andreas Pereira to Fulham for an undisclosed fee
 
Goodness, I had basically forgotten about the existence of Pogba at this point. The amount United paid to get him and for him to end up leaving on a free is really something.

Didn't Pogba end up leaving Man United on a free the first time he left them as well? What I recall was Sir Alex basically calling him every Scottish insult known to man because he jerked them around until his contract ran out and he bailed for Juve. And now the exact same thing has happened. It's like they didn't learn a single thing in the meantime ... because they obviously didn't.

Yes he did, but the circumstances were probably different. He really only spent 1 season with the senior team after 2 seasons with the youth teams and made 7 appearances, 3 in the league, 3 in the League Cup and 1 in the Europa League. And he had just turned 19.

Sure. Either way, they keep paying somebody for him to show up and then letting Juve get him for free. Maybe stop doing that.

Ajax defender Lisandro Martinez to Man U for north of €57 million. Arsenal had been chasing him too.

Zlatan re-signed with AC Milan for another year. He’s injured and probably won’t be back until January.

Steffen had basically a lost year last season with the injuries and lack of use really cutting into his value to club and country. So, yeah ... Boro is fine, I guess. I was hoping he'd get a better loan than a Championship gig, but honestly the Championship is probably on par overall with 90% of the Euro leagues. It's no worse than a loan to a French side who play against 3-4 quality opponents and a bunch of dreck. At Boro he'll get a steady stream of competent opposition even if he'll be missing the high end action.

Turner ... yeah. He's also a bit beat up at the moment, so shifting to training mode for a bit won't be bad for him in the short run. So long as he gets some live action between now and Qatar it should be fine for the US.
Steffen’s loan move to Boro is complete.

He can also play on the wing ... versatile depth piece.

Lewandowski will be 34 right around the start of the season, but the dude has popped in more than a goal a game for the last three freaking years. He may in fact be ageless.
