  11. Messi to Man City?

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Times chief football writer Henry Winter: "Lionel Messi is not being badly paid by Barcelona. Lifestyle wise Barcelona is quite nice. 

    "He is also an intelligent individual who looks at his career and thinks if he comes to the Premier League with no winter break, with the Capital One Cup, which he probably won't play him in, there is the FA Cup as well...he will be exhausted by the time the major honours are contested.

    "If he is going to be rated among the greatest players of all time, and you look at Pele and Diego Maradona being in the top two in terms of the World Cup, Messi has still got to deliver a World Cup. Maybe it is all about the money but I just think with Messi it is about the career and his standing in history."

  12. CLOSE

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    .

    Bolton Wanderers manager Neil Lennon: "I'm looking at Barcelona now and they look like they are on the cusp of greatness with the way they are playing. It's very early in the season. I didn't think I'd see a team as good as the Barcelona side that beat Manchester United in the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley. But this current team is starting to show a lot of similarities to the one four years ago."

  30. Guardiola to Man City?

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Times chief football writer Henry Winter: "The Pep Guardiola link is slightly more do-able. You can see the logic in terms of the individuals in power at Manchester City. 

    "Guardiola has talked very politely about English football in the past but from a footballing romantic prospective why leave this Bayern Munich side? They have got some decent players there. 

    "I know Barcelona are probably the best team in Europe at the minute but Bayern Munich are playing some of the most beautiful football. Maybe sometime after Christmas Bayern Munich will announce a new contract for him. He is a special manager."

  31. Guardiola to Man City?

    Pep Guardiola

    It is not only Lionel Messi who Manchester City want. The Premier League big-spenders also want Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola.

    French Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 matches will be played without away supporters for a second successive weekend on government orders in the wake of the Paris attacks. 

    The French football league - the LFP - also said the ruling is set to apply for the subsequent three rounds of Ligue 1 games, the next two rounds of Ligue 2 fixtures, along with matches in the Coupe de France, Champions League and Europa League. 

    It means travelling fans will be able to attend games again on December 18-20, the final weekend before the French game goes on its Christmas break.

  35. 'Obscene'

    Messi to Man City?

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Former Aston Villa and Manchester United striker Dion Dublin: "If there is a club willing to pay you £800,000 a week, are you really going to be bothered about the climate and the standard of life? 

    "Manchester City probably could afford it but it's obscene. I don't care how good the player is. How could you pay someone that amount? I'm not having that."

  40. Messi to Man City?

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Times chief football writer Henry Winter:"I would love to see it happen but I still think it is a long way from La Rambla to the Manchester Ship Canal.

    "From the Premier League's prospective it would be sensational to have Lionel Messi over here to sprinkle a little bit of gold dust. You have seen how we reacted when Jurgen Klopp came over and put on a masterclass of a press conference. 

    "The fact a real showman could come in like Messi, who delivers, who is probably one of the top five players of all-time, I think Richard Scudamore, the broadcasters, even the rivals clubs, would love to see him over here."

    Let's fast forward a few months. Let's imagine Lionel Messi has rocked the Nou Camp to the core by moving to Manchester City. How will he do? Will Messi be able to score as many in the fast-paced Premier League as he does in La Liga?

    Cristiano Ronaldo has already proved he can adapt in England and Spain. Does Messi need to prove himself by moving to the Premier League or should he stay at Barcelona?

  53. Three changes for Barcelona

    Barcelona v Real Sociedad (15:00 GMT)

    Barcelona's Andres Iniesta

    Barcelona make three changes to the side that hammered Roma 6-1 in the Champions League in midweek.

    In come keeper Claudio Bravo, defender Jeremy Mathieu and midfielder Andres Iniesta for Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Thomas Vermaelen and Sergi Roberto.

    Barcelona XI: Bravo, Alves, Pique, Mathieu, Alba, Busquets, Rakitic, Iniesta; Messi, Suarez, Neymar.

    Real Sociedad include forward Imanol Agirretxe, who has scored nine La Liga goals this season.

    Real Sociedad XI: Rulli, Aritz, Mikel, Inigo, Yuri, Markel, Granero, Prieto, Canales, Vela, Agirretxe.

  54. Messi to Man City?

    Barcelona v Real Sociedad (15:00 GMT)

    There's one story dominating the back pages. It involves Lionel Messi and Manchester City offering the Argentine forward a mind-boggling £800,000 a week to leave behind sunny Barcelona for the rainy north west of England.

    Messi, ever the professional, won't let speculation over his future get to him. He is still on the comeback trail having only returned to action last week after two months out with a knee injury.

    He is already building up a head of steam after netting a couple of Champions League goals in midweek. Can he bag his first La Liga goal since 20 September against Real Sociedad?

  55. Staying or going?

    Lionel Messi

    They didn't just defeat bitter rivals Real Madrid, they hammered them. They didn't just overcome Roma in the Champions League, theyembarrassed them.

    Four points clear at the top of La Liga, five straight wins, 18 goals in five outings...life at Barcelona is pretty good right now. 

    Yet are we witnessing the latter stages of Lionel Messi's Nou Camp career? Is the little magician heading for the Premier League to sprinkle his star dust?
