Transfer news and rumours LIVE – Barcelona offer Antoine Griezmann to Juventus as Cristiano Ronaldo replacement
We’re back for another day of transfer news and rumours as teams look to try and get as much business done. The club season is over and the transfer window is opened for business as of June 9. With Euro 2020 starting today, Premier League clubs are already starting to make their moves and line up some new arrivals before the summer of international football begins.
News broke yesterday that Manchester United finally, after a full year of speculation, made an offer for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho.
The Athletic has details on that offer, which was reportedly worth €78m plus €10m in add-ons. However, it's claimed Dortmund want a package worth around €100m.

There is, however, confidence at Old Trafford that Manchester United are much closer to getting a deal done for Sancho than they were last summer.
Sancho is reportedly pushing for a return to the Premier League and wants a deal to happen in this transfer window.
16:45 - Rose in talks with Watford
Danny Rose is in talks with Watford over a move to Vicarage Road following his release from Tottenham Hotspur.
The left back had become something of a forgotten figure at Spurs, failing to make a single Premier League appearance for the North London club last season.
Now, though, Rose is looking to kick-start his career and Watford are keen to sign the 30-year-old following their promotion back to the Premier League.
That's according to Sky Sports who report discussions between the two parties have taken place.
16:30 - Another manager linked to Everton!
Yesterday, it was Fatih Terim and Rafael Benitez linked with the Everton job. This was after Eddie Howe, Graham Potter and Nuno Espirito were all reported to be candidates.
Today, another name has been thrown into the mix - Rudi Garcia. According to L'Equipe (via Goal), the Toffees are in contact with the former Lyon boss.

Garcia has recently been linked with Spartak Moscow, but would prefer to stay in Europe's top five leagues. That's to Everton's advantage.
But given the number of names that have been linked with the post since Carlo Ancelotti left last week, do Everton really know what sort of manager they want?
16:10 - Inter make move for Emerson Royal
His arrival at Barcelona was only confirmed last week, but Emerson Royal might be on his way out of the Camp Nou with Inter interested in the full back.
Barca's signing of Emerson, who they held a purchase option on, was reportedly always made with the intention of selling the player on.
Gianluca di Marzio reports Inter have opened discussions with Barcelona over the full back who shone for Real Betis in La Liga last season.
15:50 - Kroos wants Ramos to stay at Real

"I don't know how things are going with the club," said the German midfielder. "Of course he's a top colleague and I enjoyed very much playing with him and I really hope that we'll have some more years together," the midfielder told reporters.
"But in the end it's not my decision. What I can say is that he's a great guy - and the best captain I ever had in my career."
15:35 - Xhaka opens up on transfer talk
By many accounts, Granit Xhaka is close to leaving Arsenal and the Swiss midfielder has now commented on reports linking him with Roma.
Jose Mourinho is believed to be keen on taking Xhaka with him to the Stadio Olimpico with a £17m deal thought to be in the offing.
"There are always rumours as soon as the transfer market opens but I don’t want to talk about my future,"
when asked about the reports.
"I am 100 per cent focused here with the national team. What happens afterwards, you will then get to know about it."
15:15 - Donnarumma 'one step away' from PSG
One of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer might be about to reach a conclusion with Gianluigi Donnarumma reportedly "one step away" from joining Paris Saint-Germain.
That's according to Calcio Mercato who claim the Italian national team goalkeeper will earn €12m a year in the French capital having left AC Milan as a free agent.

Donnarumma had been linked with Juventus, but Fabio Paratici's impending switch to Tottenham Hotspur has disrupted their talks with the 22-year-old. PSG it is, then.
Won't somebody spare a thought for Keylor Navas? It's happening to him again.
15:00 - Which Euro 2020 players will get moves?
You know how it is - there are always players who get a big transfer on the back of their performances at a major tournament. So who will do that at Euro 2020?
Of course, Milinkovic-Savic was previously linked with a move to Manchester United and has been a bit of a star for Lazio for a number of years.
Would he be a good fit for Jurgen Klopp's side?
08:45 - Hello and welcome!
Good morning! Are you ready for another day of transfer madness? Of course, the Euros start today, but the transfer window is open and clubs across the Premier League and Europe are already doing deals.
Let's start off with some news of Harry Kane's future - Juventus are reportedly lining up an offer for the Tottenham Hotspur striker.
