After the first rumours that PSG was looking for Messi jerseys for its own supermarket before a possible move, it is now clear that French champions are gaining confidence in their ability to land the world’s best player.

Messi has had a miserable career with Barcelona this season and despite the departure of club president Josep Maria Bartomeu, the Argentine international still seems to be looking ahead to his future outside the club.

PSG speaker Neymar has admitted that he would like to play with Messi again and reunite with the player with whom he had a deadly partnership on Barca between 2013 and 2017.

And since the future of Kylian Mbappe is unclear, it looks like there will be a big money bid for the Frenchman – maybe for Real Madrid – to bid on Messi.

Messi, 33 years old, can play from 1 year old. January to negotiate a preliminary contract with each club. Zabaleta, who has played for many years with Messi in the Argentine national team, believes that the Barca striker would like to try his luck in the Premier League.

It’s sad to see Messi in this situation, Zabaleta said. I didn’t think he’d make it to the last year of his contract with Barcelona. The team doesn’t play well and he doesn’t seem to like his football. We’ll see what happens at the end of the season.

He has a good friend in town in Sergio [Agüero] and he worked with Pep [Guardiola] on Barca. Some people in the club know Messi too. Every player would like to play in the Premier League, it’s the best league in the world and you might want to spend a few years there. I’d like to see Messi, if he decides to go to another club in England.

Barca expects it on the 24th. In January, a new president is elected before talks with Messi on a new contract begin. In the meantime, other clubs will be available from next month, including City and Paris Saint-Germain as one of the first if he decides to leave Camp Nou.

11:59 GMT: Well, that was quick… Just a few hours after the British press reported that West Bromwich Albion was considering firing director Slaves Bilic, the news was confirmed. The Daily Mail reports that Sam Allardyce will fill the vacancy….

Bilic was fired by West Bromwich Albion despite Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City, which earned the club a surprise point in their fight against relegation.

West Brom is second in the Premier League with only seven points from 13 games, their only victory comes at the end of last month against Sheffield United. They also drew four times and lost eight times.

Bilic, who was appointed boss of West Brom in June 2019 and was promoted to the Premier League last season, is the first senior manager to lose his job this season.

According to the Post, Allardyce will meet the club on Wednesday with the aim of concluding a short-term agreement to ensure the continued existence of the Premier League, following his visits to Sunderland, Crystal Palace and Everton in the middle of the season.

11:26 GMT: Tottenham striker Son Heung-min wants to spend the rest of his career at the club, according to manager Jose Mourinho, but the financial consequences of the Covid 19 pandemic mean that progress has been made with a new contract for the South Korean international.

The son’s current contract does not expire until 2023, but after scoring 13 goals this season and forming a formidable partnership with Harry Kane as Premier League striker, the club would like to sign a new contract with the 28-year-old.

However, with the club recently announced a loss of £63.9 million, Mourinho believes that this is not the time to announce the signing of important new players.

Mr. Mourinho said at a press conference: How do I sign a new contract with a player? We don’t know what’s going to happen next season. You don’t know if you can offer a player a better contract than the one he has now. It’s a very strange moment.

I only trust Sonny and Daniel Levy. I know they both want him to stay, for life if he can, for the rest of his career.

I see Sonny here signing a new contract, but I’m not insisting anything happens now because it’s probably not the right time.

I’m not a money man, but I wouldn’t want to be the owner or CEO of one of those football clubs living in such instability.

The Guardian and The Times were unanimous in their report that Bilic, who was appointed coach of West Brom in June 2019, could be fired despite the draw of the club at the Etihad stadium on Wednesday.

09.24 GMT : The salary of Lionel Messi is too high because of the financial situation of Barcelona, according to presidential candidate Emily Ruso, who adds that he wants to keep the club’s top scorer on a reduced contract.

Messi, who wanted to leave Barca last season, has less than seven months contract with the club where he spent his entire career. Since January he is free to negotiate with competing clubs in another country.

Former Barca vice-president Ruso, who resigned this year in protest at the way the club was run by then boss Josep Maria Bartomeu, said Messi would accept a lower salary if he could convince the club to return to winning ways.

Messi’s salary isn’t sustainable in the club’s current situation, so we’ll have to negotiate with him. We are going to present him with an interesting project, Russo told us Tuesday in the Spanish newspaper AS.

The most important thing here is the sports project. When Messi said he was leaving, he wasn’t talking about money. He has the highest salary in the world, nobody earns more than him, he doesn’t want to leave because he doesn’t earn enough.

He wants out because he wants to win trophies. He mentioned it the other day when he said: The Champions League is no longer in our hands. He wants a team full of talent.
