Headlines
Another of Copa America's big names will likely miss at least one match. Lionel Messi has been battling a back injury and he will not be in the starting lineup when Argentina takes on Chile tonight. He will, however, be on the bench in case the superstar is needed. Kickoff at Levi's Stadium is set for 10pm.

The Jamie Vardy to Arsenal saga is looking to come to a swift end. The Leicester City striker is reportedly deciding on his move to North London today. The two clubs have negotiated throughout the weekend and Vardy even underwent a medical exam with The Gunners yesterday, which he passed. By the time this publishes, it's possible we already know the answer. England leaves for Euro's in France at 11:30 BST, which is 6:30am eastern time. Arsenal and Vardy have both said they want this wrapped up before the European Championships.

Another, more established, star is apparently picking his 2016-17 club soon. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is planning a "big announcement" for Tuesday. Manchester United are the favorites to land the Swedish goal machine, so it's not unlikely that he announces his intentions to join Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, but we never know.
