We’re not USUALLY one for football rumours, so this article will be a little bit contradictory. But we couldn’t help it. Messi and his wife are either taking the piss here, or not. And if not, then holy shit.
As you already know, Messi has been unhappy at Barcelona for a while. It’s no rumour. He hasn’t got along with Luis Enrique since he came in as manager and before their defeat to David Moyes’ Real Sociedad this weekend he was dropped from the squad. Then to put the icing on the cake, he skipped training the following day.
When Lionel Messi skips training and isn’t happy at a club, people notice. And it didn’t take long for people to notice that he’d gone and followed Chelsea FC on Instagram. Now a lot of people will probably say it’s just coincidence, but it comes at a very, very convenient time.
So lets add some strength to this. Because only hours later, Lionel’s wife decided to follow Mourinho’s men on Twitter.

Make of this what you will, but the thought of having Lionel Messi in the Premier League week in week out is an extremely exciting prospect.
And I’m not even a Chelsea fan.
