€250m Messi Wants Chelsea Switch – reports

Barcelona forward Lionel Messi prefers a future at Chelsea rather than at his current club, according to Spanish journalist Jordi Baste, reported on radio station RAC1.

The radio station has also claimed that Chelsea are willing to pay a staggering €250 million to bring him to the Premier League.

Messi is reportedly unhappy at the Nou Camp, having seen his playing time cut under Luis Enrique.

The club is also not acting correctly off the pitch, arguably, and yesterday the director of football resigned from his position, followed by assistant director of football Carlos Puyol, a former teammate of Messi’s, also leaving the club.

Roman Abramovich reportedly set a deadline of this year to bring Messi to Stamford Bridge, and it seems like the player himself is keen on a switch.

It now remains to be seen whether the two sides can thrash out a deal, although, undoubtedly, Barca will not want to be seen as weak in losing one of their key players.
