Chelsea fans are looking ridiculously excited here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear the gossip from Metro, who seem to think that the Blues are set to land Lionel Messi.
Even Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has previously admitted that Lionel Messi would cost the Blues too much in the FFP era – but after being handed an extra £40 million this summer and not having to worry about it affecting their spending v income balance, a £181 million move for Messi could well be on the cards.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the bar, we think that Messi would make the Blues a force to be reckoned with both in England and abroad and the possibilities of trophies and brilliant football for the west London side would be endless – but dreaming about it is one thing. Getting Messi to join is quite another.
Chelsea fans. After watching Messi’s masterclass against Manchester City, do you have to sign this man? Let us know your thoughts below.
