Griezmann speaks out
13.30: Antoine Griezmann has knocked back reports linking him with a move to Barcelona.
When asked directly by French TV station Telefoot if Barcelona were in contact, Griezmann said: “That information is not good.”
He then admitted he has made mistakes when previously addressing his future.
“Last summer I did not express myself well when speaking and those were mistakes I must accept and own up to,” he added.
“Since [the turn of the year] I have come back stronger both physically and mentally.
"Now I feel fresher and I want to continue the form I have shown since January.”
Tuchel to PSG
13.00: Thomas Tuchel is on the verge of joining PSG, according to reports in Germany.
Bild quote a German football website as the source of the rumours.
Tuchel has been linked with the Arsenal and Chelsea jobs, which could both be vacant come the summer.
But the ex-Borussia Dortmund boss is on PSG’s radar as well.
PSG have already failed to snare Luis Enrique, who himself appears keen on the Chelsea post.
Thomas Tuchel is supposedly close to joining PSG
12.15: Alvaro Morata has “sparked fears” among his Chelsea team-mates that he could leave the club in the summer.
Morata joined Chelsea in a club record deal from Real Madrid last summer and made a solid start to his career with six goals in his first 10 games.
But the goals began to dry up with just five scored between September 30 and March 18 and Morata has cut a frustrated figure on several occasions, including a game when he received a red card for diving and dissent against Norwich in January.
And due to his poor form, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has opted to play without a striker at times despite Morata being fit to play.
According to the Telegraph, Morata has been “downbeat” around the training ground and his team-mates think he wants to play in Spain or Italy.
A return to Real could be possible with wholesale changes expected in the summer.
Italian side Juventus have been linked with Morata, where he spent two seasons on loan.
Chelsea sweat over FIFA plans
10.30: FIFA could be about to scrap the loan system.
France Football claim FIFA are wary that some of the world’s biggest clubs are hoarding young players for future profits.
Juventus (41) and Chelsea (38) are just two clubs who have a wide loan network.
And the report claims FIFA wants to stamp down on the supposed practice of youth player speculation.
A meeting at the FIFA General Executive in October could see the loan system overhauled or scrapped altogether.
Barcelona could have signed Ilkay Gundogan back in 2015
Barcelona had Gundogan deal
10.00: Barcelona had a deal for Ilkay Gundogan wrapped up in 2015 - only for then-manager Luis Enrique to reject the move.
That is the revelation coming out of Spain today, with newspaper Mundo Deportivo claiming Gundogan had passed a secret medical at the Nou Camp.
A £17.4m transfer fee with Borussia Dortmund was agreed.
But at the last minute Enrique scrapped the transfer and instead bought Arda Turan, who would prove a flop at the Nou Camp, from Atletico Madrid.
Gundogan waited another season at Dortmund before eventually securing his switch to Manchester City.
Pogba Neymar switch
09.25: Talk is rumbling on about a possible deal involving Paul Pogba and Neymar.
She bookmakers are already drawing up markets for the swap deal, which could also include Anthony Martial.
And now Spanish newspaper Sport are reporting the deal could happen.
Pogba is supposedly open to the move and PSG would be interested in landing the France international.
But the departure of Neymar would likely be the biggest stumbling block, with PSG having paid £200m for the forward just last summer.
Isco to Juventus
09.00: Liverpool could miss out on a deal for Isco this summer as Juventus enter the picture.
Liverpool are said to be keen on landing the Real Madrid star, who remains on the periphery of Zinedine Zidane’s first team.
A summer transfer could be in the pipeline, especially if he impresses at the World Cup this summer.
But Spanish transfer experts Diario Gol claim Juve and Real chiefs will meet this week during their Champions League showdown to discuss Isco’s future.
Upamecano to Barcelona
08.30: Arsenal’s reported interest in RB Leipzig defender Dayot Upamecano is set to be rivalled by Barcelona.
Manchester United, Bayern Munich and AC Milan are also said to be keen on the centre-back.
But French TV station Telefoot claim Barca are preparing an £87m (€100m) deal for Upamecano, to beat off competition from the Gunners and their fellow suitors.

Chelsea loanee wanted
08.15: Bayern Munich and PSG and interested in signing Chelsea’s Kenedy.
The Brazilian has spent this term on loan at Newcastle, where he has become a fans’ favourite.
The Toon could make an offer for him in the summer but Sky Sports claim European giants Bayern and PSG are eyeing rival bids.
Kenedy recently spoke highly of his time at Newcastle, telling UOL Esporte: "If it is good for everyone, it would be a pleasure to keep donning the shirt of such a big team.
”[Benitez] insists that I learn how to speak English.
"He acts like a father, and I learn a lot from him.”
