Chelsea fans are in dreamland on Twitter this afternoon as reports in Spain have stated they are readying their bid for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
It’s not the first time we’ve heard these rumours, and it surely won’t be the last, but with Messi’s relationship with coach Luis Enrique at ‘breaking point’, this could be the time that any move were to happen. Although, it’s still pretty high-up on the farfetched rankings.
Chelsea are one of the few clubs with the financial firepower to capture the multiple time Ballon D’Or winner, although it would still cause havoc to their finances due to UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations.
Whilst we shelve this rumour amongst the unlikely, at least for now, these Chelsea fans will be making crossing their fingers and toes.
It’s worth laughing at now, but Imagine the scenes if Chelsea end up signing Messi.

The only way Messi can show up at Chelsea is if we win titles. Show that we mean business, not just grazing past the title yearly!
