Transfer: Done deal; Kim closing in on Man Utd switch; Barcelona offered chance to sign Kante

Done deal: Chelsea extend Kirby contract

Chelsea have triggered their one-year contract extension option on Fran Kirby, despite her season-ending knee injury. The England international has been sidelined since February with a knee injury sustained against West Ham, ruling her out for the remainder of the WSL season and the upcoming Women's World Cup. While Kirby has made just 13 appearances across all competitions this campaign, Chelsea have recognised the importance of the 29-year-old, and have triggered a one-year extension on her current deal.

Kim closing in on United switch

Kim Min-jae is on the brink of wrapping up a move to Man Utd, according to Corriere dello Sport (via The Sun). The South Korea international, signed by Napoli last summer as a Kalidou Koulibaly replacement, is expected to fly to the UK when the transfer window opens. A release clause is due to come into force in July, though reports on the amount are conflicting, with United expected to pay somewhere between £40m and £55m.

Barcelona 'offered' Kante

Barcelona have been offered the chance to sign N'Golo Kante to replace the departing Sergio Busquets according to transfer insider Gerard Romero. The Frenchman has been a major miss for Chelsea this season after suffering from a number of injuries. He is out of contract at the end of the season and while the expectation had been that he would sign a new deal the latest development could have thrown a spanner in the works.
