Lautaro has ALSO admitted, in a separate interview, that he's just found out about interest in him from Real Madrid.

Racing de Avellaneda striker Lautaro Martínez, the 20 year old pearl of Argentinean football, has said he's in advanced talks with Atlético Madrid...

Here's more on Barcelona's apparently imminent signing of 18-year-old Ballou Tabla from Montreal Impact:

Barcelona sources have confirmed to AS that a deal is in place to sign Montreal Impact's Canada U20 international Ballou Tabla. The attacking midfielder, 18, is to join the Blaugrana's 'B' team.

Meanwhile, a prison football team somewhere in Spain could be in line for an unexpected boost to their defensive options:

Neymar is so keen on a summer move to Real Madrid that he's even said to be willing to take a pay cut to make it happen...

  Nigerian forward Brown Ideye has arrived in southern Spain to undergo a medical with LaLiga strugglers Málaga, ahead of a mooted loan move from Chinese club Tianjin Teda.

High-flying LaLiga new boys Girona have announced that midfielder Àlex Granell has extended his deal at Montilivi until 2021:

Here's more on that Barcelona farewell to Javier Mascherano, who is off to Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune:

Barcelona have been holding a farewell event for Javier Mascherano this morning/lunchtime, following confirmation that the 33-year-old is leaving the Camp Nou and is heading to Chinese Super League club Hebei China Fortune:

Vicente Guaita has passed a medical in London and is about to complete his move to Crystal Palace. The Premier League side have met the player's 8 million euro buy-out, bringing to an end his three and a half seasons with Getafe.

Laporte flew from Bilbao to Manchester last night and will undergo a medical revision before completing his move to Manchester City, according to Spanish radio. More on that here:

More on Aymeric Laporte's situation: Man City are ready to stump up his buy-out to make him the biggest outgoing transfer in Athletic Club's history.

As reported here yesterday, Málaga have been chasing Brown Ideye and appear to have a verbal agreement with the Nigerian who is expected to fly out to Spain for a medical today. The 29-year-old striker will spend the remainder of the season on loan at La Rosaleda which effectively closes the door on Everton's Sandro Ramirez returning. 

It looks like Celta have lost out in their attempt to lure Lucas Boyé to Balaídos. The Galicians wanted to insert a clause into their loan deal proposal but Torino have got cold feet and now are not willing to let the left winger go.

Betis are close to landing Porto left-back Miguel Layún. The Verdiblancos are keen to take the multi-purpose defender on loan with an option to buy him in the summer but Porto prefer a straight transfer.

Barcelona will give China-bound Javier Mascherano a send-off before tonight's Copa del Rey quarter final return leg against Espanyol. The Argentinean is all set to continue his career in Asia with Hebei China Fortune.

Rafa Benítez wants to bring Atlético de Madrid striker Kevin Gameiro to St James Park according to the Express. However, with Torres and Gaitán more likely to leave over the summer, it looks doubtful that Simeone will give the order for the French forward to leave.

In Catalunya, Grêmio whizz Arthur graces the front cover of MD, who report that the player has given his approval for a summer move to Camp Nou. Barça will pay 25 million euros for the 21-year-old Brazilian midfielder.
