Metro have Chelsea fans looking up here in the Football Transfer Tavern as the publication seem to think that the Blues will not be signing Lionel Messi.
As our landlord reminds us, there have been a fair amount of stories in the press in recent weeks and it seems that Blues boss Jose Mourinho is determined to make it very clear that stories are just that.
Mourinho spoke to the press and was more than willing to clear up any rumours that had been doing the rounds, noting: ‘Your world has changed so much that our world has changed. It’s so easy to have untruths circulating,
‘Some people put news without confirming. Speak about rumours like they are true. It’s obviously not true.’
Now as our punters note, the Blues are flying high this season in the league and we certainly think they are pretty good – but the dream of adding a player like Lionel Messi would be the icing on top of a very nice cake – according to our regulars of course.
