Milan will seek to extend the loan of Real Madrid’s Brahim Diaz for another season, according to CalcioMercato.

The Rossoneri believe the youngster will continue to improve and are eager to take him on for another year.

Barcelona head coach Ronald Koeman believes that his side need signings in order to be competitive, but he is prepared to be patient.

The Dutchman appreciates the financial difficulties of the club, Sport reports, and is prepared for a new president to be installed late in January before deals are done.

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid defender Gabriel Heinze will take the manager role at Atlanta United, according to AM.

He has previously coached Godoy Cruz, Argentinos Juniors and Velez Sarsfield.

Sassuolo expect renewed interest in winger Jeremy Boga this January, according to CalcioMercato.

Roma, Milan, Juventus and Napoli were all interested in him during the summer, but it is Juve who lead the way.

A fee of at least €25m (£22m/$30m) is likely to be required to sign the Frenchman.

Barcelona’s stars have agreed to defer their pay for this season in order to save the club €122 million (£109m/$145m), according to Cadena COPE.

Additionally, €50m of bonuses will also be foregone for the moment.

However, the club’s leading performers will be paid the full amount back over the coming four years.

Ex-England Under-21 star Demerai Gray is set to leave Leicester, according to the Daily Mail.

His deal is up in the summer and the Foxes want to sell him in January in order to make a return on the player.

Manchester sides set to duel over Dortmund ace

Manchester United and Manchester City are set to fight over Dortmund striker Erling Haaland in the coming months, according to the Daily Mail.

Real Madrid have also been linked with the forward, though their financial issues may make it tough for them to complete a deal.

Southampton are optimistic they will be able to secure Danny Ings’ long-term future at the club, according to manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Speaking to Hampshire Live, he said:”I think the offer we made him is a fantastic one and, in my opinion, we showed him how much we want him to stay here and the rest is on him.

“If not, as I said, he has to take the responsibility for this and we will have to live with it too.

“We are not addicted to one player only and we must always have a squad that can replace anybody.”
