Wednesday's La Liga transfer talk news roundup: Pau Torres, Samuel Chukwueze, Lionel Messi

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for La Liga on Wednesday, November 25.

Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest transfer news in La Liga on Wednesday, November 25.

Wednesday morning's La Liga transfer talk news roundup:

Manchester United, Liverpool, Real Madrid, Chelsea 'all chasing Samuel Chukwueze'

Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea are among the clubs interested in signing Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze, according to a report.

The 21-year-old has established himself as a regular member of the Villarreal first team in recent seasons, making 37 La Liga appearances in 2019-20 and featuring in all but one of their matches so far this term.

Chukwueze's form in those games has drawn the attention of a host of Europe's top clubs, with Real Madrid thought to be leading the race for his signature.

La Razon claims that Madrid are eyeing a double swoop for Villarreal pair Chukwueze and Pau Torres and are willing to offer €65m (£57.9m) plus a player in exchange.

However, they could face particularly fierce competition for Chukwueze, with as many as six Premier League clubs among those also keeping tabs on the winger.

Manchester United are thought to view the Nigeria international as a possible alternative to Jadon Sancho, while Chelsea, Liverpool, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Everton and Leicester City have also been credited with an interest.

Man United are considered the biggest rivals to Madrid for his signature, although Villarreal are thought to be holding out for his full €80m (£71.3m) release clause to be triggered.

Chukwueze has scored 13 goals and assisted 12 more in 90 appearances for the Yellow Submarine.

Manchester City 'draw up 10-year plan for Lionel Messi'

The owners of Manchester City are reportedly prepared to put together a 10-year contract for Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.

With his existing deal at Camp Nou due to expire in the summer, the 33-year-old will be able to hold formal discussions with interested clubs in January.

Having failed to sign the legendary Argentine earlier this year, City remain a potential destination for the attacker as he contemplates his next move.

According to the Daily Mail, officials have put together a 10-year plan, one which would see Messi represent New York City FC after a spell at the Etihad Stadium.

The report adds that Messi will also be offered the chance to take on some sort of ambassadorial role at one of City Football Group's club in China, India, Japan or Australia.

Despite his current unhappiness at Barcelona, the player will likely be offered fresh terms over the coming months.
