Messi to solve Pep's problems?

The transfer talks continue this week with some exciting stuff. Here are 3 transfer news that grabbed our attention:

1. Lionel Messi to Manchester City

Every transfer window there are rumours that Lionel Messi will leave Camp Nou. This time, there are talks of a Messi-Pep Guardiola reunion. Manchester City is rumoured to offer £100m for the Argentine forward. It's highly unlikely he'll want to retire at Manchester City. However, Manchester City and the league could certainly benefit from a Aguero- Messi duo.

2. Diego Costa to leave Chelsea

Costa has been linked to the Chinese Super club team Tianjin Quanjian. However, it is said that Chelsea is expected to reject their £80m bid. Costa however may not have a place at Chelsea next season due to his attitude. If Costa is going to be sold, it would make the most sense to sell him to the club offering the most money and this would more than likely be the Chinese Club. Chelsea will need a good striker and the more money they have the likelihood increases that they would get someone good. Rumours are also linking Costa to Barcelona and Atletico Madrid

3. Antoine Griezmann will stay at Atletico Madrid

According to Enrique Cezero, the club will reject the bid from Manchester United. This is really in the Spanish club's best interest because they would be forfeiting all chances of a trophy this season and the coming seasons especially if they don't find someone as dedicated to the club. The need for a forward will just be more and more urgent for Manchester United with their current forwards being far from spring chickens.
