Lionel Messi, Barcelona captain, has not yet confirmed his extension with the Catalan club. And the Barcelona striker is, in some Messi transfer news, in contact with Chelsea.
Chelsea were crowned as winners of the Champions League title over Manchester City on Saturday night. Kai Havertz’s singular goal was enough to win them the final 0-1.
And, to place the cherry on top of the cake, Lionel Messi and his team have approached Chelsea this season.
Messi Transfer News – In Contact with Chelsea
The Sun reported earlier this month that Messi’s camp had been in touch with both Chelsea and Manchester United.
It’s said they ‘put feelers out’ to see whether any of the Premier League’s elite would take the Barcelona star.
Messi scored 35 goals across all competitions and the Barcelona star eve won the Copa del Rey this season.
However, at the age of 33, Messi is approaching the twilight years of his career. And he wants to win the Champions League one last time.
But, as things stand, Barcelona don’t appear to be anywhere close to win the UEFA competition.
As a result, Messi may not stay at Barcelona, with the Argentina international taking his time for his next move.
Staying at the Nou Camp remains a possibility but, with each passing day without an extension, that looks increasingly unlikely.
So, Chelsea bagging a deal for Messi, it seems, can’t be ruled out entirely.
