MONEY MIGHT BUY YOU STONES (Click to show)
Guillem Balague has been speaking to Sky Sports News HQ after reports in today’s papers that Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are trying to persuade Lionel Messi to leave Barcelona.
Balague interviewed Messi earlier this week and said: “He was very ambiguous, he said I live by the moment and my moment now is Barcelona.
“He’s been there a long time, it’s his life, he’s got it all set up there…But the fact that one of the reported teams approached him and his representatives twice in the last week suggests something is going on.
“The receptions have been interesting because it has been like ‘OK, we are listening, what do you have to say?’. It doesn’t mean he is coming, but it means he is open to the idea, which you couldn’t have said two or three years ago.
“How to convince Messi goes beyond what you can do money wise. It has be a project to win, perhaps with a manager that he would be comfortable with, but he's in a situation where he is very unhappy with the tax case and also maybe a new maturity with two kids where perhaps he wants to learn another language.
"It’s a few things that make the proposition attractive but doesn’t mean he is going to go."

FIORENTINA WANT FALCAO? (Click to show)
Everton are reportedly looking to tie down defender John Stones with an improved deal.
According to the Daily Mail, the Toffees have made an initial approach to Stones to "renegotiate the terms of his contract".
Stones was a transfer target for Chelsea in the summer but the Toffees rejected all approaches from the Premier League champions.
He has three-and-a-half years remaining on his current deal.
FIORENTINA WANT FALCAO?
Fiorentina are apparently one of a number of European clubs interesting in signing Radamel Falcao in January.
The Colombian has failed to impress on a season-long loan with Chelsea and the Daily Mirror claim the Premier League champions might be willing to let him leave.
Fiorentina, Valencia, Villarreal and Porto are said to be interested, although any deal would need clearance from his parent club Monaco.
