Thibaut Courtois and his father, Thierry, met with Paris Saint-Germain representatives at a London hotel on Monday.

The Belgian goalkeeper has also spoken to Real Madrid in recent weeks. (RTBF)
Atletico Madrid haven’t made any move to renew Jan Oblak’s contract. The goalkeeper has a deal that runs until 2021 and a buyout clause of €100m (£86.m). The Slovenian is a Liverpool transfer target, while Arsenal, PSG and Juventus have all shown interest. (AS)
Isco upset his fellow Real Madrid team-mates during their 1-0 loss to Espanyol on Tuesday night by taking 28 seconds to leave the pitch when he was substituted. Los Blancos’ captain Sergio Ramos told him in the dressing room after the match that wasn’t how Madrid players should behave. (Sport)

The vice-commissioner of the Italian FA, Alessandro Costacurta, has confirmed Italy’s next head coach will be one of Antonio Conte, Roberto Mancini or Luigi Di Biagio. He denied that the Chelsea boss was their top target though, saying: “Conte? I never said I preferred Conte. I only said that having already worked with the national team, he has the right characteristics.” (Corriere dello Sport)
Pepe Reina has accepted a move to AC Milan, who have offered the goalkeeper a two-year contract with an option for a third. The Napoli goalkeeper is out of contract at the end of the season and the Partenopei are not willing to offer him a new contract for more than 12 months. The 35-year-old has agreed to be Gianluigi Donnarumma’s backup, while he could end up being the Rossoneri’s first choice should PSG decide to pursue a move for the Italian teenager. (Tuttosport)
With Reina set to leave, Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno is now a Napoli transfer target. (Tuttosport)
Inter Milan target Bernard has been tipped to leave by his agent. Adriana Spadoto says the time is right for the Shakhtar Donetsk winger, who is out of contract at the end of the season, to move to a bigger league. “Bernard is a player who is ready to play in any European league,” he said. “Inter? It’s always good that there’s interest in him, it’s a sign that his work is being recognised. We’re deciding Bernard’s future and we can’t say anything else.” (FCInterNews)
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi says the best option for Neymar’s injury was surgery, despite it meaning the Brazilian superstar will miss the Champions League round of 16 second-leg tie against Real Madrid. Al-Khelaifi said: “We’re very sad for him and for the fans too. The best option and the best decision for us and for him was surgery, we had no other choice. We took the decision together, it’s not good news. But we will qualify for the next round of the Champions League thanks to our supporters and our players. I think the match against Real is the most important thing. We will qualify.” (L’Equipe)
