Same as it ever was: Messi hits the magic 400, Neymar staying put and Gattuso two-foots his own player

Welcome to this week's On The Continent, it's bloody marvellous to have your company. Plenty to get stuck into this week as Lionel Messi continues to normalise the extraordinary, Neymar looks to be staying in Paris, and Iñaki Williams pulls up more trees for Athletic Bilbao.

In other transfer news, Gonzalo Higuain looks like he may be on the move, but to where? And if it's Chelsea what does that mean for Alvaro Morata? Elsewhere we appraise the current contract situation with Mauro Icardi, pore over the latest in Ligue Un as Patrick Vieira and Thierry Henry prepare to face off, and there's all your usual favourites besides. Don't miss it!
