Lionel Messi seems to be making history with every passing game at the moment, and he’s going to continue tonight at El Alcoraz.
Messi is set to make his 750th appearance for Barcelona against Huesca, his 500th in La Liga as per Diario Sport.
Once he hits that, next in his sights will be Xavi‘s record of 767 games, 505 of which were in La Liga, between 1998 and 2015.
Messi, who Ronald Koeman has called happy and prepared, needs to play just 18 more games to become the player to have played the most games in the club’s history.
He’s been their leading goalscorer, with 644, for a long time, a record that’s unlikely to ever be surpassed.
The Argentina already holds the record for the most La Liga wins (368) and goals (451) ...
Inter‘s Lautaro Martinez has been one of the most heavily-linked players to Barcelona recently, with the emergency of Covid-19 and Ronald Koeman taking charge at Camp Nou thought to be important factors in cooling a deal according to Mundo Deportivo.
Koeman is largely thought to prefer his countryman Memphis Depay, currently winding down his contract in France with Lyon.
Despite this, Barcelona are said to continue to monitor Martinez closely, with the Argentine recording seven goals and five assists so far this season and apparently open to a move.
Inter are in the midst of a delicate economic situation due to the pandemic and could be forced to sell Martinez to ease the pain, an idea backed by the difficulties player and club are havi...

Back in January this year, a report from the Yorkshire Evening Post claimed that Leeds United had been keeping a close eye on Norwegian prospect Emil Bohinen. Brighton and Hove Albion were also understood to be interested in bringing Bohinen to England but nothing came of those rumours.
The 21-year-old midfielder rose through the youth ranks of Stabaek and made his senior breakthrough in the Norwegian top-flight during the 2017 season. Having made only a handful of league appearances in his first two seasons at the club, Bohinen really came to the fore in 2019.
Bohinen contributed with 4 goals and 5 assists in 29 appearances to guide Stabaek to an impressive 8th-place finish in the 2019 Eliteserien. The Norwegian also played a key r...

UEFA Nations League: Sergio Ramos was making his 177th appearance for Spain to become the most capped European player in history but it was a night to forget for the defender.
Sergio Ramos missed two penalties as Spain needed a late equaliser from Gerard Moreno to draw 1-1 with Switzerland in the Nations League on Saturday. Ramos was making his 177th appearance for Spain to become the most capped European player in history, pulling clear of Italy's Gianluigi Buffon, who has 176. But instead of a celebration in Basel, it was a night to forget for the defender, who saw one spot-kick saved by Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer but backed himself to score a second, only to miss again with a dreadful attempted 'Panenka'.
Spain coach Luis Enrique defended his...

Tottenham are hopeful of signing Gareth Bale permanently next summer for as little as £13.5 million, according to reports in Italy.
The Wales international rejoined Spurs from Real Madrid on loan this summer after falling out of favour at the Bernabeu following the return of Zinedine Zidane as head coach in March 2019.
That deal did not include an option to buy. However, Calciomercato reports Jose Mourinho is keen to strike an agreement to sign Bale, who has made six appearances so far since his return to north London, on a permanent basis.
Bale will have one year remaining on his contract when he returns to Real Madrid next summer, and the reported £13.5m fee Tottenham hope to agree is what he would receive in wages for the 2021/22 season.
Liverpool's hopes of returning to the Premier League summit were frustrated as they fought out a high-quality draw at Manchester City, while both Arsenal and Real Madrid suffered unexpected defeat on Sunday.
Manchester City were left to rue Kevin De Bruyne's missed penalty as Liverpool escaped from the Etihad Stadium with a point for the first time in four seasons after a 1-1 draw.
A flying start from the Reds was rewarded with Mohamed Salah's 13th minute penalty, but Gabriel Jesus leveled for Pep Guardiola's men before De Bruyne failed to hit the target from the spot three minutes before halftime.
A share of the points between the sides that have combined to win the title for the past three seasons leaves Liverpool in third just a point off the top, while City sit five...
