Exclusive – ‘I can see Messi joining Chelsea’, admits former Barcelona team-mate

first_imgLionel Messi COULD join Chelsea, according to former team-mate Andrea Orlandi.The Argentine superstar’s future is currently being discussed as his relationship with manager Luis Enrique sours at the Nou Camp, with the Blues apparently considering an audacious £200million swoop for his services.And while there have been rumours about him leaving the La Liga giants in the past, Orlandi, who spent two years with Barcelona, believes it now appears more likely than ever he could exit the club.“What I know from people there is that from day one the relationship [between Luis Enrique and Lionel Messi] wasn’t the best and obviously now it’s getting even worse,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast.“Messi didn’t get picked at the weekend and the next day there was an open day for the kids, it���s a big day in Spain, the sixth of January [Three Kings Day]. There were 15,000 to watch training and Messi didn’t turn up. That really wasn’t good from him and obviously it’s not looking good at the moment.“It looks like [we could see Messi at Chelsea]. The rumours in Spain are that Chelsea are after him and I can see that happening because it’s probably the first time a story [like this] about Messi has come out. There have been loads of stories over the years but nothing has come out in the press but it’s been publicised [now] and everyone knows there is a problem there.“I don’t know who has done it [made the problems public] or who wants Messi to leave, whether it’s the club or him, but it looks like he could be going.”last_img
