Barca's all-time top scorer Messi attempted to leave the Camp Nou in the close season, and is expected to walk away on a free transfer when his current contract expires in June.

During the summer, young people socialising in groups were widely blamed in Italy for a pick-up in infections after the government loosened restrictions imposed to contain its first wave of the pandemic in the spring.

On Friday the Office for National Statistics (ONS) published its weekly update on coronavirus and its social impacts on people in England and Wales and for the first time examined the difference between men and women. Government data suggests women are more concerned about keeping in touch with friends, while men are preoccupied with takeaway food and pints. The data, which covers the period from 15 to 29 November, found that women were less likely than men to have left home to collect takeaway food or drinks from a restaurant, bar or pub (10 per cent of women and 19 per cent of men). However researchers also found that women were more likely than men to have done so in order to meet up with people in a public place (17 per cent of women and 12 per cent of men), take children or young people to school or college (21 per cent of women and 14 per cent of men) or to go shopping for food and medicine (80 per cent of women and 74 per cent of men) The ONS also found that women (43 per cent) were more likely than men (33 per cent) to report having formed a support bubble; the most common reason reported by both women (42 per cent) and men (43 per cent) for choosing who to form a support bubble with was to see family members.
