MATCH takes a look at the hottest gossip flying around the footy world!

LIONEL MESSI

We’re not sure the speculation about Lionel Messi’s future is ever going to end! We’ve heard that Man. City are still interested in signing Barcelona’s 33-year-old megastar, but they are prepared to wait until March or April before enquiring about his situation!

ROMELU LUKAKU

Lionel Messi isn’t the only player Man. City are interested in! Inter Milan’s Romelu Lukaku and Southampton’s Danny Ings are also among the players being considered by The Citizens!

 

RAPHAEL VARANE

One player we weren’t expecting to become available is Raphael Varane! Real Madrid are planning on selling the 27-year-old centre-back in the summer if he does not sign a new deal soon!

IBRAHIMA KONATE

Dayot Upamecano tends to get most of the attention at RB Leipzig, but his centre-back partner Ibrahima Donate is just as exciting! We’ve heard that Man. United have identified the 21-year-old as their main defensive target!

DAVID ALABA

Chelsea are one of many teams interested in signing David Alaba when his contract at Bayern Munich expires in the summer! However, they’re not prepared to pay his current £400,000-per-week wage demands!
