Silva was reported to have been involved in Kane's first offer, which was later rejected. City has made it clear that the Portugal international can leave the club following a four year stay, if they are offered a suitable deal.
Atletico Madrid have been long linked to Silva's move and they are still keen to make a deal for him. They are looking to strengthen their ranks to keep the LaLiga title that they won last year.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal is looking to add three players to their roster before the summer transfer window closes. Willian, Hector Bellerin, and Lucas Torreira are all targets for the Gunners, none of whom played any part in their opening-day defeat to Brentford.

McKennie, who had joined Juve from Schalke at 18.5m, made a strong start but was only able to play a smaller role throughout the season.
Outgoings are a priority for Barcelona, despite the well-reported financial difficulties. However, Camp Nou still has a view on inflows. According to AS, Ronald Koeman wants to bring Getafe's midfielder Mauro Ambarri on loan to help them sort out their wage problems. Barcelona must move players to make the move possible. Getafe are also waiting for a club that will trigger the 25m release clause to allow him to leave.
According to Sky Italy, Internazionale is growing more confident about signing Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram. After the departure of Romelu to Chelsea, the Nerazzurri are looking to strengthen their attacking options. They have already signed Edin Dzeko from AS Roma in this window. Inter was unlikely to meet the Bundesliga club's initial valuation of 30m. However, it is believed that they have been in contact since.
According to The Times, Jesse Lingard is willing to leave Manchester United if he cannot be guaranteed game time. The 28-year old impressed last season on loan for West Ham United, which brought him back into England's reckoning with a call up before the European Championships. Lingard was part of the Red Devil's preseason, scoring against Derby County and QPR. However, United's strength as an attacking depth means Lingard will not get as much playing time as he would like.
