Lionel Messi is keen on a move to Chelsea. Or at least that's what's been inferred after the Argentina international began following the Premier League club on Instagram. There is talk of unrest at Barcelona, which might add some weight to the claims.

The future of Saido Berahino remains a hot topic with The Independent's Sam Wallace writing that Tottenham and Liverpool are ready to make a move for the striker. West Brom are asking around £20m for the player that scored four goals in the FA Cup at the weekend but refused to celebrate.

Liverpool and Tottenham are in competition for another player - Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph. According to the Daily Mirror bids of £3m will be made in the coming weeks to test Villa's resolve.

The likelihood of Javier Hernandez ever playing for Manchester United again appears to be diminishing. The Mexico international is currently on loan at Real Madrid for the season, but when that deal expires he will be sold by the Red Devils according to the Daily Telegraph.


Wesley Sneijder has been linked with a host of Premier League sides this month - including Manchester United. However, any potential suitors will face competition from Juventus. Massimiliano Allegri, the manager of the Serie A club, has confirmed that he is interested in signing the Galatasaray player.

Wilfried Bony has indicated he would be interested in switching to a Champions League club. Both Chelsea and Manchester City have reportedly shown interest in the Swansea striker.
