Welcome to the 90min Monday live blog. We’ll have all sorts of transfer stories to keep an eye on during the day, so be sure to stick around.
We’ve seen a few big moves so far this winter window – Ferran Torres, Philippe Coutinho and Lucas Digne being among them – and there’s been plenty of speculation over the likes of Erling Haaland, Dusan Vlahovic and Ousmane Dembele as clubs look to strengthen their squads. Everton also dismissed Rafa Benitez over the weekend, and we’ll have the updates from that story as they come through.

9:21am – FERNANDES MAN UTD CONTRACT TALKS SHELVED FOR NOW
Over at Old Trafford, Bruno Fernandes is looking to become one of Manchester United’s top earners, though since he rejected a new offer in late autumn talks have been shelved, according to The Athletic.

Medical staff apparently suggested Hazard having more surgery but president Florentino Perez just wants him gone. The dream move has turned into a nightmare.
