Messi and his girlfriend have started following Chelsea and a few of their players on instergram! WTF, surely he can't actually be considering a move there. I'm sure it's ether a fake account or something of the sort as apparently he follows Beyoncé and Man City as well.
Apparently, my Chelski mates are saying, that the deal is in place with Messi & his dad to come over already. TRansfer fee of £140M and wages around £350K pw which will be part paid by the kit sponsor to ensure Chelsea meet FFP

*I think it's bobo but we'll see

Pretty sure you can't have fee/wages paid for by a shirt sponsor.
It will have to show legitimately in the accounts and there's no way on earth Chelsea can meet FFP with that deal.

I think it was said that he keeps his naming rights with Adidas or Nike and they pay him the balance of his wages through his company MessyMessi Ltd

So it is being reported that Andrej Kramaric is due for his medical with Leicester today....

Some weird reports of how CFC are still trying to set something up with LCFC to make a purchase in summer....and another report that CFC were basically interested because Roman was trying to show off to his oligarch friends.....it's all very odd....

Saw this posted by a CFC supporter:
  1. Rumours have been flying round at Barca that he's unhappy with Enrique's management and wants a move.
  2. He has problems with taxes and the only way to get away from them would be to move country (Something like this)
  3. Him and Cesc are great friends (Messi was one of the ones begging for him to leave Arsenal).
  4. Messi's wife and Cesc's wife are best friends and Cesc's wife said she didn't know how she would live without Messi's.
  5. Messi is ambassador of Turkish airlines, Chelsea's new shirt sponsor.
  6. Messi is sponsored by Addidas, one of Chelsea's main sponsors.
  7. Messi followed our instagram ;)
  8. Cesc's wife liked a picture of Messi liking ChelseaFC
  9. He has started following our players social media accounts
  10. Barca having a meltdown, and Puyol being quoted as saying something like "I quit after seeing this side of Barca". This damages Messi's reputation.
  11. Messi's girlfriend just followed us on twitter.
  12. He just followed Jose's daughter
  13. My resources in spain tell me he is coming
  14. RAC1 are reporting that Chelsea and Barca having conversations.
  15. Messi's agent has just got in touch with Daniel Levy as we speak to see if Tottenham will pay for his Flight & medical to Chelsea. (found on twitter) (Thanks to /u/Reborno[2] for this information)
  16. Why does he do all that today? After being left on the bench, and then missing a training session. Is that just a coincidence?
:inpain:

But a great comment by a self aware CFC supporter on Reddit about the story:
___Thanatos___

Vitesse is getting one hell of a player too bad it's only a loan

I think he would....they like to use 2 strikers when all are healthy, Dzeko can score for fun when he is in form but is an absolute ghost when he isn't in form and both Jovetic and Aguero work well with a strong forward up front with them....

Well they could just sell their 3rd squad that is out on loan at the moment to offset the spend......and i actually had a friend of mine who is a CFC supporter say that he thinks the club is trying to arrange sales on all those players now to be completed before the end of the month...:banghead:

RAWK level disconnection with reality.

Shitty gonna pay Swansea 30mill for Bony? I thought he might be attainable for around 20, but 30, me thinks they're being done up like a kipper.

If Mourinho thinks Hazard is getting 'kicked out of english football' wait till Messi lines up. Imagine he'd have a triple fracture and a busted ACL within the first season. Would be a shame for such a great player.
