Barcelona have not ruled out making a move to bring Lionel Messi back to the Nou Camp, says the Daily Mirror. Messi swapped Catalonia for the French capital in the summer after two decades with Barcelona but the LaLiga club would welcome a reunion.

Juventus have started discussions with a new deal for Chelsea target Matthijs De Ligt, writes the Express. The defender joined from Ajax in 2019 but the signing of a new deal would not be all bad news for the Stamford Bridge outfit, as De Ligt’s release clause would be lowered in any new deal, the paper says.
