We start with the team likely to end as runner-up. Manchester United will, almost certainly, be spending big this summer as they look to gain ground on fierce rivals Manchester City. But if they pull this one off it will feel like a huge transfer: David de Gea is set to sign a new deal at the club which will see him stay at Old Trafford until 2023 on £350,000-a-week, according to The Sun.

For Chelsea, they have even more ground to make up. After Sunday's defeat to Tottenham, Antonio Conte's team looks condemned to the Europa League next season and they could face a massive overhaul. According to the Daily Telegraph, there is a possibility that nine first-team players could be set for the Stamford Bridge exit, including Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois.

Chelsea are, however, also one of the clubs interested in Valencia's 18-year-old winger Ferran Torres, who has also attracted interest from Liverpool, according to the Daily Mail.

In North London, Toby Alderweireld looks set for the exit at Tottenham Hotspur this summer after he was left out of the squad to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. According to the Mail, Paris Saint-Germain look most likely to sign the 29-year-old Belgian center-back and they are prepared to pay him £10 million-per-season.

There is good news for Spurs' first season at the new White Hart Lane, though. According to the Daily Telegraph, Tottenham believe that their manager Mauricio Pochettino will be joined by six of the team's key players in signing new deals before the new season begins.

And finally, Mario Balotelli could be set for a return to English football as, according to the Daily Mirror, the 27-year-old Italian striker's contract at Nice is set to expire in the summer and his agent is already planning a move back to the Premier League.
