Messi requests Man Utd deal
Barcelona star Lionel Messi wants the club to sign Manchester United star Paul Pogba, who continues to flirt with a stunning move away from Old Trafford.
That’s according to OK Diario’s Eduardo Inda, who said: "Messi has asked for Pogba, but the problem of Barça is the Financial Fair Play.
"They have a chance to bring Pogba in winter on loan with a purchase option.”
Barcelona would love to sign Pogba but whether or not United let him go in January, particularly if they do not sign a replacement, remains to be seen.
Liverpool and Arsenal plan
Barcelona could raid Liverpool or Arsenal to provide competition for Jordi Alba.
Mundo Deportivo say the La Liga giants are keen to sign Monreal - and think the return of Sead Kolasinac from injury may force him out.
Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno is another player in their sights.
The Spaniard looks likely to leave Merseyside in the New Year after losing his place in Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI to Andy Robertson.
And Barcelona could be his next destination.

Busquets makes Messi claim
Messi is the best of all time, according to Barcelona team-mate Sergio Busquets.
The Argentina star missed out on the UEFA Playter of the Year award to Luka Modric recently.
But Busquets said: "The best in the world now and for many years is Messi, who is the greatest and will continue to be until he retires.
"Modric is spectacular, but Messi has no comparison with Luka or anyone."
