PSG make contact over Messi transfer

The Mirror reports that Barcelona could be on the verge of losing star player Lionel Messi. The 33-year-old forward tried to leave the club in the summer but ended up staying, however he is free to sign a new deal with another team in January. PSG have now made contact with Messi’s father, and are one of the few clubs in the world who could afford his wage demands.

***: Creating a forward line of Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar might be enough for PSG to finally win the Champions League, after years of investment to bring glamour to the side. Messi was expected to sign for Manchester City if he ever chose to leave Spain, but PSG are probably just as wealthy.

Neymar may keep Mbappe at PSG

Brazilian striker Neymar is set to sign a new deal with Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Sun. The 28-year-old forward is into the last two years of his contract in Paris and so the club are in talks with him to extend his stay. One prerequisite of negotiations is assurances that Kylian Mbappe will remain in the capital, which may botch Real Madrid and Liverpool’s interest in the French forward.

***Neymar has been linked with a return to Barcelona for years because he seemed so unhappy in France. However he appears to have adjusted to his life and a proper run at the Champions League may have cheered him up. Mbappe is absolutely crucial to the club too, and he will be able to command a huge new salary from whichever club gets his signature next.

Ter Stegen to stay at Barcelona

Marc-Andre ter Stegen has signed a new deal to stay at Barcelona, and he has made it clear that he is not interested in leaving the Spanish club any time soon. The 28-year-old goalkeeper has extended his contract to 2025, and newspaper Marca reported him as saying: "I want to play at the Camp Nou for many years and continue to win trophies.”

Arsenal linked with Yusuf Yazici

The Daily Mail has reported on the successful start to the season for Lille’s attacking midfielder Yusuf Yazici.
