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.
