With the international scene being fairly quiet, only a few major events have occurred in recent days. To kick things off, the transfer windows around Europe have opened and transfer talks are well underway.
The biggest transfer story to come out of England is that Uruguayan striker Darwin Nunez may have snubbed Manchester United to join fierce rivals Liverpool as he seeks UEFA Champions League football.
There are also still some concerns over Cristiano Ronaldo's future at the Red Devils. Will the Portuguese veteran stay at a club that cannot offer him Champions League football next season, or will he leave Old Trafford? Will a UCL team sign Ronaldo?
Another big talking point was Lionel Messi's five-star performance in a friendly against Estonia. Magical Messi scored an incredible five goals in that match, becoming the first player in history to score five times in a single match at both club level and for his country.
Right before that fixture, though, Kylian Mbappe seemingly disrespected the South American game by saying that teams are weaker there than in Europe, so it was fitting for Messi to dominate a European team that the likes of Mbappe would face.
