Lionel Messi to Chelsea?


Recommended Posts



Not really sure how he fits into any big side other than psg. 

He doesnt press at all anymore, so he would most probaly have to play as a false 9. 

City have aguero, who i dont see leaving or playing second fiddle, and if he played deeper, that could make them soft in the middle. Just doesnt seem a natural fit with how Pep has built that squad.

Maybe in a 2 with Lukaku at inter could work in a swap for lautaro.

I think you need to build around messi to get the best out of him, which means covering for his flaws. There arent many teams in a position to do that for a player that is 32. 

Cant see him ending up here, due to fit and wages. It would be great to see him week in week out here though.

He could just threaten to walk for free next summer though, he has a clause that allows him to leave for free for a period each summer. That expired in june, so whilst they can dig their heels in now, they would probably take a decent fee now, rather than nothing next summer.

i actually wouldnt be surpised if this ended up with a new president and koeman being replaced before je has even taken a training session, such is the power messi holds at the club.

If he does go, i would love to see him link up with Ronaldo at Juve, it would be a fantastic end to an era dominated by both players, especially if they won a champions league together.

Juve can't pay them both. 

PSG might.

If Pep can convince the Man City owners to go all in for Messi that would be his best option. I doubt that Inter can pay for Messi.

Incorrect. 

He can leave on a free now. He had a clause in his contract and it expires at the end of each season. The season has just ended which is why he put the paperwork in now. 

His clause extended because the season extended. June isn't the date. This is reported on bbc sport 

There is 0 fee.

However I do think he will stay.
