Lionel Messi reportedly sent a burofax to Barcelona last night asking the club to let him leave.
The 6 time Ballon d’Or winner has spent his entire footballing career at Catalonia but things have been spiraling down between Messi and club president Bartomeu for quite some time now.
With the president refusing to take responsibility and instead of seeking distractions in the form of managers and players, Messi has finally told the club he wants out. It has naturally sought the interest of a host of clubs who want the football magician to play for them.
Of the clubs generating high interest, there are the likes of Inter Milan and PSG and Manchester City and much to the delight of Chelsea fans, it is us as well!
Rio Ferdinand’s tweet last night encouraging Lampard to go for Messi has some base behind it.
Chelsea have had a stellar window and have wrapped up a few signings. They seem unstoppable at the moment with more transfers lined up and with a free agent Messi available, it will be ideal for Chelsea to bring home the Messiah of football.
The idea of Messi lining up with Havertz, Ziyech, Pulisic and Werner seems perfect for Chelsea right now.
