Chelsea Ready To Buy Messi From Barcelona For £200Million
Chelsea have been given a huge boost in the hunt for Lionel Messi after it was reported that Barcelona have been open to selling the Argentine star.
The Blues have been strongly linked with a £200million move for Messi in the new year, with his father and agent refusing to rule out a move.
And when asked about a possible switch away, the forward’s official biographer, Guillem Balague, revealed that Barca have been discussing selling Messi for the last two years.
‘I don’t think Lionel Messi has been as close to leaving as he is now,’ Balague told Beacher Report.
‘I think it’s still very unlikely. But the interesting thing is that Barcelona have tried to sell him for the last two years – and he knows that.
‘It just feels like a change could be good.’
