The stories out of Paris will not disappear. Paris Saint-Germain continue to be linked with the blockbuster move of letting Lionel Messi leave for free this summer.

Messi struggled in his first season in Paris, but he has been brilliant this season, leading Argentina to World Cup glory in Qatar and scoring 18 goals in 32 appearances for PSG.

Messi earns a massive £740,000 a week, and with team-mate Sergio Ramos also on huge wages, PSG are under Financial Fair Play constraints after being hit with a FFP fine of £8.6million in September, with a further £56.3m dependent on future compliance.

Ricardo Pepi continued his rich vein of form, scoring a delicious winning goal for the United States vs. El Salvador in its 1-0 victory. The 1-0 win booked the USMNT’s ticket to the CONCAF Nations League semifinals, to be held in June.

Pepi gave the US a tangible reward for an inspired second half performance following a dour first 45 minutes.

The Groningen striker, who scored twice in 7-1 win at Grenada on Friday, entered in the 60th minute and put the US ahead two minutes later.

Juventus v Inter

It was a rare glimmer of sunshine for Juventus fans at the weekend as they beat Inter Milan 1-0 in the Derby D’Italia. The winner, from Filip Kostic was not without controversy as there were major question marks around an Adrien Rabiot handball in the build-up. The goal stood after a length VAR check, infuriating Inter and their supporters.

For all the criticism that Max Allegri’s side have faced this season, they find themselves heading into the international break in 7th place in the table, only 7 points behind fourth place AC Milan. Juventus are scheduled to have their appeal against the 15-point penalty on April 19 and if they win that appeal, they will move back into second place, making it very likely that they will be in the Champions League next season.
