Jose Mourinho recently indicated his disappointment with United's transfer business so far this summer, and they now have less than a week until the window slams shut on the eve of the Premier League season.

N'Golo Kante could become the highest paid player at Chelsea after being offered a new deal. Paul Pogba who starred in France's world cup winning campaign has warmed to the idea of inheriting Barcelona's legendary midfielder Andres Iniesta's old shirt number of 8.

The Argentine is a versatile player, however, and can fit into a full-back role quite comfortably, as has been witnessed during his time with the national team.

But the Blues have acted swiftly to offer Kante a deal that would see him leapfrog Hazard, who now makes £220,000 a week, as their top earner.

The Frenchman is simply out of Barca's price range given Chelsea are likely to value him at over £100 million ($131m) and are unwilling to entertain any offers.

Barcelona are considered to be the front-runners in the race for the World Cup victor and have reportedly held discussions with him over the last week.

Although, the deadline for Premier League transfers is Thursday, foreign clubs are free to make signings up until the end of the month.

The Belgium goalkeeper isn't keen on renewing his contract at Stamford Bridge, however, and work is ongoing to find a replacement for the Madrid-bound goalkeeper.

Manchester United are set to bid for Barcelona and Colombia centre-back Yerry Mina, 23, after failing in their attempt to sign 25-year-old Leicester City and England defender Harry Maguire.

However, following the completion of Kante's renewal, it is expected that the Chelsea officials will also hold talks with Hazard over a potential new settlement and might offer him similar wages to Kante.
