United are also interested in Argentine World Cup winner Emilio Martinez but they face a three-way battle for his signature. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are chasing the Aston Villa keeper.

Hakim Ziyech’s £8 million move from Chelsea to Al Nassr collapsed after a knee problem was flagged during the winger’s medical.

The Morocco international was expected to sign a three-year deal. However, issues during Ziyech’s medical saw the deal run into problems, while there have also been suggestions that there was a late disagreement over personal terms.

Dominik Szoboszlai wants to join Liverpool with Newcastle United pulling out of the running for the midfielder. That has increased the possibility of a deal being concluded with RB Leipzig. The 22-year-old Hungary international has a £60 million release clause that is understood to have expired on Friday.

Barcelona have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Samuel Umtiti to terminate his contract.

Lionel Messi’s goal best

Calcutta: Lionel Messi has won the Champions League goal of the season.

Messi’s curling strike against Benfica, which included a beautiful touch play between other PSG players, beat tremendous goals from Vinicius Junior of Real Madrid and Manchester City’s Erling Haaland to win the award.

Messi, who did not extend his contract with PSG and moved away from Europe for the first time in his career, is set to join Inter Miami.

Messi’s move to the US came after he could not return to his boyhood club Barcelona.

Messi, 36, is expected to play his first match for Inter Miami on July 21.
