Messi: I’m Ready Quit Barca For Chelsea Or Manchester United
In the month of January 2015, Lionel Messi was linked with some of the big Premier League clubs especially with Chelsea and Manchester City.
Messi got injured during La Liga match against Las Palmas. He is recovering from injury and it is expected that he can play against Real Madrid in first leg of El Clasico 2015. You can check el clasico 2015 time and telecast.
Messi embroiled in an ongoing dispute with the Spanish authorities. He and his father Jorge face trial over an alleged £3.1 million tax fraud relating to image rights deals.
The Sun report Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all made informal approaches to Messi’s representatives this week — with one club making contact twice this week. The Sun add Messi often speaks to his friends who play in the Premier League such as Cesc Fabregas and Sergio Aguero.
A summer move is unlikely given the 28 year old’s 180 million release clause at Barcelona. But in June 2017, Messi will be 30 with just a year left on his deal with Barcelona.
In the month of August Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said “I think there are only three clubs in the world who have the power to say, ‘I don’t sell’. This is Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.”
