Despite the transfer market in Spain being officially opened for some time now, Barcelona have been quite thus far. Of course, a lot of their business will inevitably depend on the upcoming elections and with that on hold, everything has stopped.

Still, the papers this morning are focused on two big transfer news surrounding the Catalans. Mundo Deportivo are still dealing with Manchester City’s Eric García, saying the club see his signing as crucial.

It is true that Barcelona have struggled in the backline and could prosper from a young and talented centre-back, not least because he’s an ex-La Masia student and knows the core values of the club.

However, Mundo Deportivo mention that the Catalans will have to move quickly because García is on the radar of some other teams as well, namely Paris Saint-Germain.

Speaking of the French titans, SPORT say they will move for Lionel Messi in the summer in the event their own superstar, Kylian Mbappé, decides to leave.

The young forward’s contract negotiations haven’t exactly been going that well and with his constant links to Real Madrid, his departure does feel inevitable. As does Messi’s, for that matter.

Due to the financial fair play, the outlet suggests, the Parisiens can’t have more than two superstars in the team. But with Mbappé potentially gone sooner rather than later, that leaves the door open for the Argentine’s arrival.

I’ve been a Barcelona fan for more than half of my life. What started as blind love is slowly turning into professional writing. Now, I get to write about Barca, analyse them, and voice my opinions on them across platforms. I’m happy to be a part of this big project.

During the presentation of the new Inter Miami kit, club owner and former football superstar David Beckham confirmed that he has big ambitions for his side. The Englishman has been making major headway since he founded the club, who began playing in Major League Soccer (MLS) last season.

The Miami based club unveiled their secondary jersey, named La Palma on Saturday. Beckham, during the ceremony spoke about his plans for the club, stating how important it is to attract the biggest names in football.

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United man addressed rumours about both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. He said: “I know that in Miami our fans want to see great stars. Messi and Ronaldo have been mentioned, have been at the top of their game and have been the best for the last 15 years. We want to attract the best players.”

Speaking about the talent he has already managed to attract, Beckham added: “We already have players like Higuaín and Matuidi who already bring shine and glamour, but in the future we want to have the opportunity to bring big name signings.”

Back when Messi asked to leave Barcelona last summer, the Argentine was linked however briefly to a move to the MLS. Inter Miami, being the most possible suitors. However, Messi ended up staying in Spain after a complicated transfer saga.

There is no doubt that with Beckham at the helm, Inter Miami could attract a ton of big names in the future. However, a move to the States would most certainly be a step sideways for Messi, considering he still has years left at the top in Europe.
