Spanish journalist Guillem Balague reckons that Lionel Messi could be on his way out of Barcelona, he told Sky Sports.
Here are five clubs that could sign the four time Ballon d’Or winner, if Balague’s prediction comes true.
Could Messi follow former Barcelona teammate and childhood friend Cesc Fabregas to Stamford Bridge?
After following Chelsea on Instagram, Messi dropped a huge hint that he could be moving to the Premier League with joint league leaders Chelsea.
The Blues have recently made contact with the Argentine captain’s father, according to the Express, with the hope that Messi’s father could influence his son’s decision.
Blues owner Roman Abramovich certainly has the financial capability to pull off such an astonishing move, especially with the recent selling of former Stamford Bridge favourites David Luiz to PSG and Juan Mata to Manchester United. However, Financial Fair Play rules could make the move near impossible with Mourinho stating only last month that there is ‘no chance‘ the West London outfit could pull the signing off. Chelsea fans will be hoping otherwise.
