*Paper Talk* + Liverpool and Van Dijk

* In a bad sign for Lionel Messi's hopes of reclaiming the Ballon d'Or trophy, France Football have shunned the forward from their Champions League team of the season.
Claiming the European Golden Shoe as Barcelona made the last-eight was not considered enough to oust Neymar from the 4-3-3 formation while finalists Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala were also selected.
Gianluigi Buffon has been placed in goal, behind a back four of Dani Alves, Leonardo Bonucci, Sergio Ramos and Marcelo, whilst the midfield was made up of Luka Modric alongside Monaco duo Fabinho and Thomas Lemar.

* With Luis Enrique's departure comes an end to the lack of rotations within Barcelona's first-team squad with new coach Ernesto Valverde set to change the club in this regard.
His time with Athletic Club saw him garner a reputation as a coach who loves to tinker with his team and often made changes whilst Luis Enrique was labelled as the exact opposite.
Under their former coach Los Cules had twice been the club who had made the fewest changes per season in recent years with 20 substitutions left unused in the current season.
That followed on from 24 unoccupied changes during games in 2015/16, with the trip to Valencia that year seeing Luis Enrique completely ignore his bench for the whole 90 minutes.
In Valverde's four seasons with the Basque club there has only been one season in which he left any substitutions unused and this came in 2014/15 when he failed to use all three changes in only two matches.

While his teammates burst into applause upon his arrival, the Atletico Madrid forward didn't join the cheers.

Reporting the alleged incident, the accuser claimed that she and Hernandez were engaged in sexual activity before asking him to stop, as the former Atletico player refused to do so and a struggle ensued, throwing her from the car.

Liverpool have pulled out of the race to sign Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk after a row with their Premier League rivals.

Reports earlier in the week claimed the Saints were threatening action over the Reds's pursuit of their player as they felt an illegal approach had been made.

It was claimed the Netherlands international had told Liverpool he wanted to join them without the clubs having opened negotiations regarding any transfer.

In a statement on their website, Liverpool apologised for any misunderstanding and confirmed they would no longer look to sign Van Dijk this summer.

"Liverpool Football Club would like to put on record our regret over recent media speculation regarding Southampton Football Club and player transfers between the two clubs," it read.

"We apologise to the owner, board of directors and fans of Southampton for any misunderstanding regarding Virgil van Dijk.

"We respect Southampton's position and can confirm we have ended any interest in the player."
