The summer transfer window was unlike any other; see all the major deals and check out how we graded the biggest signings. And just because the window is shut until January, that doesn't mean the rumours won't keep coming. Here is the latest gossip and speculation.
TOP STORY: Roma eyes Madrid's Ceballos
Los Blancos reportedly value the midfielder at €20 million and while his former club Real Betis are also said to be interested, they would be unwilling to match that pricetag. Meanwhile, Mourinho is said to be keen on adding the Spain international to his squad as a "key" to his plans in the January transfer market.
Ceballos, 25, spent the past two seasons on-loan at Arsenal before returning to the Bernabeu this season. He joined up with Spain for the Olympics in the summer and suffered an ankle injury as his side went home with a silver medal. He is yet to return to action following his injury and is expected to be back in mid-November.
However, losses to Lazio and Juventus in the league have shown more reinforcements could be necessary whilst a 6-1 defeat to Bodo/Glimt in the Europa Conference League has also brought criticism onto Mourinho.

21.17 BST: And the final entry of today is news of a possible double exit from Arsenal, with Matteo Guendouzi and Konstantinos Mavropanos set to leave the club on a permanent basis in the summer.
Football London claims that both will exit for a combined £12m, but only if the respective clubs at which they are spending this season on loan, Marseille and Stuttgart, avoid relegation.
20.58 BST: PSG are eyeing Bayern Munich's Corentin Tolisso as a possible midfield option if they cannot land Paul Pogba next summer.

20.28 BST: Talks between Chelsea and defender Andreas Christensen over a new contract have stalled, according to Goal.

18.30 BST: Juventus hope to reduce the clause in Alvaro Morata's loan that would allow them to sign the 29-year-old permanently at the end of the season.
Mundo Deportivo reports the Serie A club intend to sign the Spain international after two seasons on loan from Atletico Madrid, but the current clause of €35m is more than they would be willing to part with.
18.02 BST: Newcastle have put Wolves captain Conor Coady at the top of their transfer target list, according to The Sun.

17.33 BST: According to journalist Gianluca Di Marzio, Real Madrid are attempting to sign Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland next summer.
Speaking to WettFreunde, the journalist said: "Haaland has a release clause of 75 million. It is normal for many clubs to try to get him. Real Madrid will try to get Haaland together with Mbappe. They want to do it, but I don't know if they can do it."

14.00 BST: West Ham United boss David Moyes has told Sky Sports that it will now take an offer of more than £100m if any club is to sign Declan Rice.
Sources have told ESPN that Rice, 22, is on Manchester United's list of transfer targets for next summer. But Moyes says any interested club will have to come up with an even bigger transfer fee than quoted in the summer window just gone to and the midfielder.

Dest, 20, arrived from Ajax in 2020 for €21m plus €5m in add-ons but has been inconsistent with some of his performances.
The full-back missed a golden opportunity to put Barca ahead in the El Clasico defeat against Real Madrid on Sunday (stream a replay on ESPN+), but missed the target.
Barca are still looking to reduce their wage bill in the midst of €1.4 billion debt, so Dest could be one to depart.

"If you ask me, I would love to stay until the last day of my football career. But I can't say much about that, it's not in my hands," he told Sky Sports last week. "It depends on what the club want, not on me. At the moment I can't see myself ever playing against Liverpool. That would make me sad.
"It's hard, I don't want to talk about it, but it would make me really sad... but let's see what will happen in the future."
10.06 BST: Journalist Nico Schira says that a number of top clubs want to sign Porto winger Luis Diaz.

The Colombia international has brought on super-agent Pini Zahavi to help him in the next stage of his career, but has an €80m release clause which Porto will insist on being paid.
09.22 BST: Real Madrid veteran Marcelo will depart the club in the summer says El Nacional.
Marcelo, 33, is coming to the end of his career and wants to head back to Brazil to play for Fluminense before he retires.

08.30 BST: Erling Haaland will command wages of at least £30m if he leaves Borussia Dortmund for a new club next summer, sources have told ESPN, with Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid all in the race to sign the Norway forward.
Haaland, 21, can reportedly leave Dortmund at the end of this season if a club triggers his €75m ($87m) release clause at Signal Iduna Park. Sources have told ESPN the fee will be inflated by a significant payment to Haaland's representatives for brokering a deal.
