The summer months have produced the busiest and most memorable transfer window ever, but clubs will no longer be able to make signings after Tuesday night.
It is set to be an action-packed transfer deadline day with a number of clubs still in the market to strengthen their squad and hopeful of getting deals over the line.
Clubs have until 23:00 BST on Tuesday to sign, which is when the transfer window for the Premier League, English Football League and Scotland closes, with staggered times across Europe’s main leagues.
Follow Mirror Football across the day to keep on top of all the deals, with these 15 players among those whose future will likely have key updates.
The club announced on Friday that an agreement in principle had been struck for a remarkable return of the 36-year-old, but the deal has yet to be formalised to make Ronaldo officially a United player.
A fresh announcement confirming Ronaldo’s arrival – which is likely to clarify his long-awaited squad number – is expected on Tuesday.

One player on his way out of Old Trafford is Dan James, who looks set to join Leeds United in a deal in the region of £30million.
The Welsh forward had started two of the first three Premier League matches for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side but the club have reluctantly allowed the former Swansea player to move on.
James has been a long-term target of Marcelo Bielsa’s side, who had agreed a deal in principle to sign him from the Swans in 2019 but could not formalise the deal in time and it subsequently collapsed.
Chelsea have been trying to construct a deal for Sevilla central defender Jules Kounde for weeks but have not been able to come to an agreement on a transfer fee.
Personal terms had not been a problem for the central defender – rated as one of the best in Europe – but his £68million release clause has proven problematic.
The Blues have moved on Kurt Zouma to help fund a move but as things stand, it appears unlikely they will be able to resurrect a deal for Kounde.

Borussia Dortmund want to sign Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi on a loan deal and have not been put off by Thomas Tuchel’s insistence that the club intend to keep the winger this summer.
The 20-year-old has yet to feature for the Blues in the Premier League this campaign across their opening three matches and wants more first-team football.
Hudson-Odoi has previously been strongly linked with a move to Bayern Munich but he could now join their Bundesliga rivals as a de facto replacement for Jadon Sancho, now at Manchester United.
The right-back only joined Barca officially this summer after spending two-and-a-half years at Real Betis in a co-ownership deal.
His arrival is likely to see him move ahead of Serge Aurier and Matt Doherty in the Spurs pecking order, with the future of each of those players now in question.
West Ham have been monitoring a permanent deal for Jesse Lingard all summer after he netted nine goals in 16 appearances during a loan deal in the second half of last season.
There has been no agreement over a potential fee with Manchester United while the player is said to be content with remaining at Old Trafford and making a push for more game-time.
It is unlikely Lingard will be heavily involved in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans this season but a move to the Hammers will now have to happen at the last moment, if at all.

Spanish midfielder Saul Niguez has spent the entirety of his career at Atletico Madrid but has been made available for an exit this summer.
Diego Simeone’s squad are stacked in midfield options while the club’s finances meant Saul could be offloaded – with Chelsea and Manchester United among the clubs his representatives offered him to.
Despite interest from the Blues in a potential loan deal with obligation to buy, this is another deal which appears to have gone cold in recent days.
What transfer business should your club complete on Tuesday? Comment below
Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez looks set to leave Everton to re-join former club FC Porto on a loan deal.
James enjoyed a sterling opening few months at Goodison Park last season under Carlo Ancelotti – who worked with him at Real Madrid – but his form tailed off and he has fallen from the first-team plans.
His exit would free up wages for the Blues to reinvest in their squad on Tuesday.
One such possible arrival at Goodison Park is striker Salomon Rondon who has been linked with a transfer from Chinese side Dalian Pro.
The Venezuelan enjoyed a successful spell at Newcastle under Benitez before arriving in the Chinese Super League in 2019, where he linked up with the Spanish coach once again.
Rondon spent the second half of last season on loan at CSKA Moscow.

Spanish right-back Hector Bellerin has amassed 239 first-team appearances at Arsenal but is set to complete a switch to Real Betis on Tuesday.
The 26-year-old wants a fresh challenge this summer and there is a lot of goodwill between him and the Gunners, who are likely to grant his return to Spanish football.
Bellerin has previously admitted he was a childhood fan of Betis: “My first shirt was Betis because my father was a fan of the Verdiblanco team. It was difficult for me to support another club.”
Another player who could be on his way out of Arsenal is Ainsley Maitland-Niles, despite the club blocking an approach from Everton on Monday.
That led the England international to take to social media to voice his displeasure at the turn of events, claiming: “All I wanna do is go where I’m wanted and where I’m gonna play @arsenal.”
Maitland-Niles has not started any of the North London club’s four matches to date this season with his two outings coming as substitute appearances in the EFL Cup win at West Brom and Saturday’s Premier League loss at Manchester City.
Leicester are in talks with RB Leipzig over a loan deal for Ademola Lookman as Dennis Praet moves to Torino on a loan deal.
Lookman spent last season on loan at Fulham – whom he was unable to help avoid relegation, with four goals in 35 appearances – and has three years of his contract with Leipzig remaining after joining from Everton in July 2019.
Wolves are interested in signing Lille central defender Sven Botman as they aim to bolster their defence.
The 21-year-old starred in his debut season in Ligue 1 last time out as he played a major role in the club’s stunning title success, pipping Paris Saint-Germain to the crown.
The Netherlands Under-21 international has previously been linked with a move to Liverpool but could join the ranks at Molineux this season.
Another player who could switch the French league winners for Wolves is Portugal international midfielder Renato Sanches.
Sanches, 24, has already won multiple titles in Portugal, Germany and France but previously endured an unhappy loan spell in the Premier League with Swansea City in the 2017-18 season.
Having been capped 30 times by Portugal, his arrival would be another statement signing by Bruno Lage’s side.
One possible outgoing at Molineux is winger Adama Traore, who has long-running links with a switch to Tottenham.
The Spain international starred against Manchester United on Sunday with his directness, acceleration and power all making him stand out and helping to light up matches.
Wolves valuation in excess of £40million may prove prohibitive to a deal, but it is worth keeping an eye on.
