Transfer news and rumours LIVE: Barcelona form Messi plan

Neymar flirting with Barca return (Mundo Deportivo)

The PSG winger has yet to put pen to paper on an extension with his current club

Neymar's talk behind the scenes does not match his public comments, claims Mundo Deportivo, as he has quietly spoken to people at Barcelona about a potential return.

The winger has repeatedly said he would sign an extension with Paris Saint-Germain, but until that becomes official, speculation from the Spanish press will probably continue.

On Wednesday, he failed to make a decisive impact as PSG lost at home in the Champions League semi-final to Manchester City.

Atletico consider Morata exchange

Atletico Madrid could ask Juventus to send Paulo Dybala to Spain as compensation for keeping on-loan Alvaro Morata on a permanent basis, according to AS.

The clubs would have to negotiate whether one should financially compensate the other, as Dybala and Morata are unlikely to be valued at the exact same price.

Juventus are also at risk of missing Champions League qualification, which could shift their summer plans entirely.

Christensen wants new Chelsea contract

Andreas Christensen said he would like to sign a new deal with Chelsea but has not been made an offer. The defender's current contract runs through next season.

"There have not been any talks (on an extension) yet, but I’m in this for the long run and I always have been," he said via The Athletic. "I feel like this is my second home. Denmark will always be my home, but Chelsea will always be my place.”

Watford discussing Baah signing

Newly promoted Watford are in advanced discussions with Rochdale prospect Kwadwo Baah, whose contract is about to run out, reports The Athletic.

Baah has made 29 appearances in League One this year, scoring three times.

Barcelona form Messi plan (TV3)

The club has outlined a long-term vision for the star that would see him eventually transition into a business role

Barcelona have gotten creative in their attempt to retain Lionel Messi, as they are hoping their long-term pitch to the Argentine convinces him to take a pay cut in the near future, writes TV 3.

According to the plan, they will offer him a two-year deal contract in La Liga before deploying him to MLS as an ambassador and finally transitioning him into an organisational role, thus promising life security beyond his playing career.

Messi's positive relationship with recently elected club president Joan Laporta works in the favour of the deal coming together, though a rival club could swoop in this summer with a mega contract offer to blow the Blaugranes away.
