Messi may join Chelsea in the near future


Can messi move to Chelsea on a free transfer in the near future? Many people think it is impossible. Of course, Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois also thinks that way. He has admitted he doesn’t expect Barcelona star Lionel Messi move to Chelsea in the near future, insisting Jose Mourinho would have to sell half the Blues team to fund a move.

Speculation went crazy that Messi was eyeing a move to the current Premier League leaders when the Argentina captain followed Chelsea on Instagram, along with Blues players Courtois and Cesc Fabregas.

However, the stopper insists that the media have completely hyperboliced Messi’s actions on social media:

“ He just followed my Instagram account, he did not say he would leave Barcelona. ” Courtois was quoted by The Sun.

“ I know him a little, but it’s just crazy how people can make such inventions with social networks. ”

Courtois has not only shunned the idea that Messi’s Instagram activity is important, but has also expressed just how financially difficult, or rather impossible, a move would be.

“ Nobody can buy Messi. I think Chelsea say they wouldn’t. Except if they sell half of the team! ” the keeper exclaimed.

However, despite the ongoing boardroom politics it seems that things have started to settle down again, although questions regarding prospective moves for all high-profile players are never very far away, particularly in the middle of a transfer window.


Messi proves himself by action

Lonel Messi scored a brilliant hat-trick as Barcelona sealed a comfortable 4-0 win over Deportivo on Sunday. Messi followed up a brilliant showing in last weekend’s 3-1 La Liga win at home to champions Atletico Madrid with a hat-trick in a 4-0 win at Deportivo La Coruna which kept Barca hard on the heels of leaders Real Madrid.

messiReports have been swirling about a rift between Messi and Luis Enrique, with the four-times World Player of the Year apparently unhappy with the Barca coach’s management style and tactics and said to be seeking an exit from the club he joined at the age of 13.

Messi responded by saying he was not thinking of leaving but he has not explicitly denied claims his relationship with Luis Enrique has broken down.

Whatever the reality of the situation, if Messi continues his prolific scoring form Barca will have a good chance of returning to winning ways this term after failing to win major silverware in 2013-14 for the first time in six years.

“He has been playing at a phenomenal level the whole season,” Luis Enrique told a news conference on Sunday.

“He has not dropped off at any moment” added the former Barca and Spain midfielder, who took over from Messi’s compatriot Gerardo Martino at the end of last season.

Messi’s treble was his 22nd in La Liga, one fewer than Real Madrid’s Portugal forward Cristiano Ronaldo, who beat Messi into second place to win a third FIFA Ballon d’Or award on Monday.

Messi, voted the world’s best player four times between 2009 and 2012, has hit 30 hat-tricks for Barca in all competitions and three for Argentina.

Real, who have a game in hand, top La Liga on 45 points at the halfway point of the season, with Barca second on 44 and Atletico third on 41.

Cristiano Ronaldo has a Messi fan

Cristiano Ronaldo’s said they met up with the Argentina captain at the Ballon D’Or ceremony in Zurich on Monday.His son Cris junior is a Lionel Messi fan.

After Ronaldo was named 2014 Ballon D’Or winner, beating four-time winner Messi into second place, the two players had a friendly exchange in the lobby of Zurich’s Kongresshaus when Cris pointed at Messi and then stood up to greet him.

Real Madrid’s Portugal captain Ronaldo told his arch-rival Messi: “He watches a video on the internet of all of us and he talks about you,” prompting a coy reaction from his son.

Barcelona forward Messi chuckled and asked the young Cristiano how he was doing.

“You are embarrassed now!” Ronaldo then laughed to his son.

Ronaldo received his third Ballon D’Or on Monday with the Portuguese or Messi having won the award every year since 2008.
Why Cristiano’s son isn’t fan of himself?Let us talking about.


What?Messi a bigger genius than Ronaldo?What are Capello talking about?


The Russia coach has voiced his admiration for the Argentine attacker, but believes the Madrid man could surpass him due to his problems at club level.

Fabio Capello says Barcelona forward Lionel Messi is a bigger genius than Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo, but believes the Argentine’s difficulties at the Camp Nou side could prove to be a problem in the years to come.

The Portugal star scooped up his third Ballon d’Or at the annual Fifa gala in Zurich on Monday and Capello refuses to rule out the possibility that the 29-year-old will eventually win the prestigious individual award more than his Barcelona nemesis, who lifted it four times in a row.

“Can Ronaldo win more Ballons d’Or than Messi? It’s a very interesting battle. Messi is a bigger genius than Ronaldo, but he is having some problems at his club and that could cause some problems,” Capello toldCOPE.

“Cristiano is very solid and mentally very strong. He wants to become the best ever and plays in an amazing team.

“All his team-mates help him and he in turn helps out the team as well. It’s crucial to have the respect of all your team-mates and to always train well.”

Capello then went on to discuss the future of Messi at Barcelona. The attacker’s future has become the subject of much speculation this season, but the Russia coach feels a transfer is out of the question.

“Barcelona should never sell Messi. How can you sell someone like Messi?

“I saw him play at the weekend. He didn’t have a good start and did not seem to be enjoying himself. And then all of a sudden he awoke and put in a superb performance. Barcelona simply cannot sell a player like him.”

Messi has a contract with Barcelona until June 2018.
