Transfer News: Chelsea and both Manchester clubs contacted over Lionel Messi transfer
Manchester City have also been contacted by the Argentine’s camp. The Citizens have been told that they could seal a transfer for Messi if they can pay him £500,000-a-week.
Messi has enjoyed a scintillating campaign at Barcelona where he has scored 34 times, but a Camp Nou exit could be on the cards this summer.
Dare we dream?
But it also goes on to mention that the 33-year-old is more likely to stay at the end of the season. Speaking recently about Messi leaving the Catalan club, manager Ronald Koeman said he was ‘not concerned’ about it.
“For me, he has to finish his career here because he has been here all his life, but it is a decision that Leo has to make. I am not concerned at all. What may happen at the end of the season we will see, but today I am not worried.”
There is no doubt about Messi’s abilities even at the age of 33. He continues to be at the top of his game and it is undeniable that he will make Chelsea a threatening side going forward.
Even if the wages are high, the Blues could possibly make up for a decent chunk of it by merchandise sales that would surely go through the roof if the 6-time Ballon d’Or makes the journey to Stamford Bridge.
