Firstly, your daily Messi update. Reports overnight from Onda Cero claim that Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu will meet with the player’s father (and agent) on Wednesday to potentially discuss a new contract.

Don’t get too excited though – as that is the easiest way for the Argentine to secure a move away from Camp Nou, while also allowing the club to receive a substantial fee for him.

It seems a departure is looking like it is on the cards though, with presidential candidate Toni Freixa admitting that he believes it is ‘likely’ he won’t be at Barça next year.

With ESPN reporting that Manchester United are serious about RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano, the German side have taken to Twitter to warn that he isn’t likely to leave (or it will take a big fee to prise him away).

The Guardian expect Dani Ceballos to return to Arsenal from Real Madrid this week, signing a new one-year deal loan deal in north London.

Sky Sport Italia say that Paris Saint-Germain have started initial discussions through agents over a replacement for the departed Thiago Silva – namely for Milan Škriniar of Inter.

With Aston Villa growing frustrated in their pursuit of Ollie Watkins of Brentford, the Daily Mail report that they’ve turned their attention to Callum Wilson of Bournemouth as an alternative.

With Monaco and Roma having been named as possible destinations, the Express now make the claim that West Ham are keen on free agent and 2014 World Cup hero Mario Götze.

There appears to be no concrete evidence to the Football Insider speculation that Tottenham are discussing a two-year extension with captain Hugo Lloris, whose current deal expires in 2022.

In other news concerning the club who are more in the news for a certain documentary this week, a talkSPORT exclusive suggests that they’re in talks with Bournemouth to sign striking duo Josh King and the aforementioned Wilson.

After so many different rumours about his plans and next destination, Sky Sport Italia have firmed up the situation surrounding Juventus’ Gonzalo Higuaín, who has rejected Fiorentina and Newcastle – with a severance package now looking likely.

We did love the Fanatik report that Mesut Özil is the subject of a staggering offer from Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr.

It claimed that the Arsenal playmaker would not only be in line to receive €17m per season but would also be offered a position as ‘the new prince of Saudi Arabia’.
