    Liverpool and Barcelona target Tah pens Leverkusen extension until 2023

    Jonathan Tah has extended his contract at Bayer Leverkusen until 2023, the club have confirmed. The Germany centre-back signed a five-year deal at Leverkusen when he joined from Bundesliga rivals Hamburg in July 2015. He has since become a mainstay of their defence, chalking up 69 league appearances. A short statement on the club's Twitter account read: "FanTAHstic News! @jonatah has extended his contract with #Bayer04 until 2023!" Tah is regarded as one of the most promising defenders in European football and the 22-year-old has previously been linked with the likes of Barcelona, Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool. His performances at Leverkusen saw him earn a first Germany call-up in March 2016, and he was taken to the European Championship in the same year to replace the injured Antonio Rudiger.

    Skriniar to frustrate Man Utd & Real Madrid by spending 'many years' at Inter

    Milan Skriniar has dismissed suggestions he will look to leave Inter in the coming months and is adamant he will be at the Serie A club "for many years". The centre-back, who scored in Saturday's 2-0 win over Benevento, has impressed in his first season at Inter, having joined for a reported €23 million from Sampdoria. His seamless transition has not gone unnoticed and the 23-year-old has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona as a result. But Skriniar insists he is in no rush to leave San Siro, despite apparently hinting at the prospect of departing for a bigger club in a recent interview with a Slovakian outlet, which he claims was incorrectly translated. "I see myself here at Inter for many years," the 23-year-old told reporters. "I've never said I wanted to leave, just that anything can happen. "The translation was wrong. All it takes is to change two or three words and it changes the meaning. "I just want to help the team, by scoring too if I can. Defensively we have often conceded with the opposition's first shot, which doesn't help confidence, but finally we have managed to avoid conceding."

    Barcelona defender Semedo out injured until April

    Barcelona's Nelson Semedo has been ruled out for at least five weeks with a hamstring injury, the club have confirmed.  The 24-year-old was restored to Ernesto Valverde's starting XI for the 6-1 derby victory over Girona on Saturday, but was forced to leave the pitch in the latter stages of the game after pulling up. Barca were forced to see out the game with just 10 men having made all three substitutions earlier in the tie, though a Luis Suarez hat-trick, two goals from Lionel Messi and Philippe Coutinho's stunner meant the Camp Nou club eased comfortably to victory.  The result also opened up a 10-point gap at the top of La Liga, with Atletico Madrid not playing until Sunday evening when they travel to Sevilla. Semedo, who has made just 11 starts for the club since his summer arrival, will now miss the club's next five matches at least. The Portugal international will be sidelined for the second leg of Barca's Champions League last 16 tie with Chelsea and a home league game against second-placed Atletico Madrid, as well as a Liga trip to Las Palmas on March 1.

    Kante and Chelsea taking confidence from Barcelona draw to Man Utd

    N'Golo Kante believes Chelsea can take plenty of confidence from their performance in the Champions League against Barcelona.  Chelsea largely controlled the first leg of their round-of-16 tie on Tuesday and appeared poised to take 1-0 lead into the return fixture at Camp Nou. However, a mistake from Andreas Christensen allowed Lionel Messi to net a crucial away goal for Barca, leaving the Spanish giants favourites to progress. The Blues will look to build on that display when they face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, and midfielder Kante feels Chelsea can be buoyed by how they competed with the Blaugrana as they eye second in the Premier League. Kante said: "Second place is still possible, we have to fight for this and see what we can do at the end of the season. It's very tight. We play in Manchester and if we win we will have the same number of points.  "We have to keep winning and hopefully be in the Champions League next season. "For sure this kind of game gives us confidence for the second leg and also in the Premier League. "We played well. We were compact throughout the game, we tried not to give them a lot of chances and we did well in that. We hit the post two times, we scored and to finish 1-1 is a little bit disappointing. "But it's like that, we have to go in two weeks and play to win. We showed we have the ability to do something against Barcelona. "The Premier League is another competition and this is another opponent but it's important, we are fourth in the table and if we want to be at the top of the table and play Champions League next season we have to win these kind of games [against United]."

    'Best in history' Messi lauded by Barcelona colleagues Coutinho & Busquets

    Philippe Coutinho and Sergio Busquets hailed the performance of the "amazing" Lionel Messi in Barcelona's crushing 6-1 La Liga victory over Girona. The Argentina international set up Luis Suarez for an equaliser after Girona had taken a third-minute lead, and netted twice himself, the second an inventive free-kick steered under the opposition's defensive wall at Camp Nou. Coutinho, a January arrival from Liverpool, also supplied an assist for Suarez before getting on the scoresheet, and the Brazilian is already revelling in a productive relationship with his superstar team-mates. "Leo is amazing," he told Movistar. "He fooled everyone with his goal. It's incredible how good he is. Each game we understand each other better, with him, with Suarez, he's very important for us.  "Bit by bit I'm learning and I have a lot of work to do." Holding midfielder Busquets echoed the sentiments of Coutinho, saying of Messi's contribution: "He always makes the difference and that's what makes him the best player in the world and in the history of football." Ousmane Dembele could not find the back of the net himself but did tee up Suarez for the Uruguayan to complete his hat-trick, and Coutinho expects the young France international to hit his stride soon.  "Barcelona play unique football," he said. "Dembele is a great player, I'm sure that with time and work we will learn. We want to do the best we can."
