What the papers say

Newly installed Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is looking to splash the cash, with Liverpool's Georginio Wijnaldum top of the wish list, the Daily Mail says. The Dutchman has been at Anfield since 2016 and Jurgen Klopp could look to Bayern Munich's Thiago Alcantara as a replacement, the paper adds.

Meanwhile, the Lionel Messi saga continues with the Daily Telegraph reporting that the Argentina international could command a transfer fee of as little as £88million.
