Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich could probably afford a transfer deal for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.

The Argentine forward’s future is in doubt this summer, as pundit Jamie Redknapp explains in the video below as he tips a potential move to the Premier League as realistic.

Redknapp goes on to say he feels Chelsea could probably afford Messi, naming them as one of the few clubs who could rival the likes of wealthy giants like Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain for the deal.

Chelsea have already spent big this summer so surely need to be cautious about further high-profile additions, but fans of the west London giants would surely welcome the legendary 33-year-old to Stamford Bridge.

  1. Chelsea could probably afford to buy Messi but firstly he is 33yrs of age,seems to act like CEO at Barcelona,and is firmly set in his ways.
    This said he would be difficult to manage,could upset existing team members with his stance on a multitude of matters.
    The plus point is his terrific skill and ability and the rewards commercially on signing him !!
    Overall,i think we would wise NOT to add him to our team which at this time is a healthy mix of blokes with general skill and ability plus young bloods to grow as the team develops!
    I see problems galore if we sign him.n

  2. 3 years ago I would loved to have signed him but at 33 I fear his powers will not be the same the club are signing good young talent
