Messi set to be offered ‘unsurpassed’ deal by Paris Saint-Germain

Barcelona ace will be handed three-year contract by PSG and the No. 10 shirt, while there’s another no for Tottenham.

SOCCER: Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly prepared an "unsurpassed" three-year contract for Lionel Messi.

According to Marcelo Bechler, TNT Sports correspondent in Barcelona, the French club are willing to offer a two-year contract for the Argentine, with the possibility of extending it for another season.

The deal is said to be "unsurpassed", with PSG set to hand Messi the No. 10 shirt currently worn by Neymar.

However, the Sun report that there is growing feeling at Barcelona that their star man will stay.

President Joan Laporta said he was "convinced" the midfielder would agree a new deal with the La Liga club, while Messi's wife Antonela Roccuzzo is reportedly house-hunting for a new property near Barcelona.

PSG remain joint 2/1 favourites to land Messi in the summer, along with Manchester City.

A switch to MLS is next best at 16/1.

Rodgers not willing to swap Leicester for Tottenham

SOCCER: Brendan Rodgers appears to be the latest manager to snub Tottenham.

Leading targets Julian Nagelsmann and Maurizio Sarri have opted for Bayern Munich and Roma, respectively and now it seems Rodgers is unwilling to leave Leicester for the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

High on owner Daniel Levy's shortlist, The Daily Mail say overtures were made this week to gauge whether Rodgers would be interested in taking the job.

However, the Northern Irishman has no interest in leaving the King Power.

Rodgers is on the brink of guiding his team back into the Champions League and wants the opportunity to pit the team he has built against the best in Europe next season.

It leaves Ajax manager Erik ten Hag as the 21/10 favourite with Betfair to replace Jose Mourinho.

Rodgers remains a 13/2 shot.

Wolfsburg manager Oliver Glasner is 10/1 but Tottenham would appear to face competition from RB Leipzig to land the 46-year-old.

Fernandes wants to go from United player to United manager

SOCCER: Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has expressed his interest in managing the club when he retires.

The 26-year-old is a long way from hanging up his boots.

However, he is keen on moving into management in the future and United are the club he'd want to coach.

He said: "I don't know which team I would like to manage. Of course, the biggest team if I can manage Manchester United, I will be happy. I can leave now just some words so if people see this, if I'm a manager in the future, the fans can make some pressure to bring me as a coach!"

Fernandes' desire to one day manage United has not yet translated into the next manager betting, however.

Massimiliano Allegri is seen as the favourite to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer by Paddy Power, with the former Juventus manager priced at 5/2.

Brendan Rodgers is next at 4/1, while those looking for an outsider in the absence of Fernandes, could back Ed Woodward at 200/1, David Beckham at 275/1 or Neil Warnock at 500/1.
