Barcelona fans, cover your eyes... more club politics.

The election dates means they will have a very small window of opportunity to do business as the La Liga winter window shuts on February 1.

15:00 - Perisic 'a good fit' for Spurs and Mourinho

Tottenham continue to be linked with a move for Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic, and Eurosport Italy's Stefano Dolci has given his expert view on why he believes the Croat star would be an ideal fit for Tottenham Hotspur and for Jose Mourinho in his team.
"Inter have desperately tried to sign a new striker to help Romelu Lukaku and, if Christian Eriksen leaves, a new midfielder in this January transfer window," Dolci said.
"Without Champions League games and with only two domestic competitions, the Nerazzurri are making it a priority to sell big-name players and Perisic should leave the club.
"In the four months of this season, Perisic has played as a substitute behind Ashley Young on the left-hand side in a 3-5-2 or as a substitute for Lautaro Martinez or Lukaku.
He has not been a key player for Inter. But in their 4-2-3-1 formation, Perisic should be a good fit for Tottenham and for Mourinho.
"At Bayern he showed he could be a very good replacement as a winger and guarantee goals, assists and good performances at a good price."

Bayern Munich head coach Hansi Flick has admitted that the club is not likely to sign any new players in January, as ''with coronavirus it's not that straightforward.''

14:00 - Exclusive: Fulham open to Mitrovic offers

Aleksandar Mitrovic was expected to play a prominent role for Fulham this season but after losing his place in Scott Parker's first XI, the club are willing to entertain offers for the forward, writes our own Dean Jones.
Mitrovic, who arrived from Newcastle United in 2018, has not scored for the Cottagers since September.
"There have been discussions with Mitrovic over the situation, and there is no friction or animosity that he is now a back-up option for Parker," Jones reports.

Fulham’s stance is that they are not actively looking to sell him but if a fair offer was to land they are willing to let the player make a decision on whether he wants to leave or remain part of the team, where he could still play a vital role as they fight to stay in the Premier League.

Yep, PSG are the second team in the frame for the Barcelona wizard, and reports late last night (from the reliable mouth of an agent...) suggest Aguero is also high on their shopping list, while Messi continues to be linked with a move to the French capital.

An actual deal!
Manchester United may cop a lot of flak but they deserve nothing but praise (for 24 hours, don’t go overboard) after spicing up the transfer window yesterday.
