Messi changes mind over PSG future
Lionel Messi is considering his future at Paris Saint-Germain and is reportedly unwilling to sign a contract extension in the French capital. The 35-year-old’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the season and his future is uncertain. PSG were confident that Messi was planning to extend his contract before the World Cup, but Argentina’s triumph seems to be key to his decision.

“Other clubs such as Inter Miami, Newell’s Old Boys and even Al-Hilal are also interested in landing the 35-year-old star.”
Arsenal close in on summer signing
Arsenal look set to beat Barcelona to the signing of highly-rated midfielder Martin Zubimendi. Barca had targeted the 23-year-old as a long-term replacement for the ageing Sergio Busquet, whose current contract is set to expire this summer, but cannot compete with the Gunners’ finances. The transfer is expected to be completed at the end of the season and Arsenal will pay Zubimendi’s release clause.
The Spaniard “favours a move to England over staying in LaLiga and rejected Real Sociedad’s attempts to increase his release clause when his contract was last renewed.”
Brighton slap £100m asking price on Caicedo
Brighton will demand £100 million for Moises Caicedo to depart in January amid serious interest from Chelsea. The Blues interest, driven by ex-Brighton boss Graham Potter, has already seen a bid rejected by the seaside club this month.
“With Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United all in the market for young, dynamic and technically able midfielders, Caicedo has been listed alongside Jude Bellingham, Enzo Fernández and Declan Rice as a preferred option for the position.”
Everton’s week gets worse and worse
Newcastle United are confident that they will be able to complete the signing of Anthony Gordon from Everton this month, despite rival interest from Chelsea. Both clubs approached the Toffees regarding Gordon last summer and Newcastle had a £35-million bid rejected. The Magpies believe they are favourites to sign the promising youngster, but are still lining up alternative targets in case a deal falls through.
“Newcastle are also sounding out other targets and retain a strong interest in Chelsea midfielder Hakim Ziyech. That is thought to be a much cheaper option if Everton do not compromise on their £60 million asking price for Gordon. Morocco international Ziyech could even join on loan, with Newcastle holding an option to buy him in the summer.”
