According to The Sun, Roman Abramovich has met with Lionel Messi's Father aboard his Super Yacht 'Eclipse' in the last ten days to discuss a possible world record move IF he decided to leave Barcelona. It's being touted as a 'serious approach' but I doubt it. 

'CHELSEA will join Manchester City in the chase for Lionel Messi if the superstar gives any indication he might quit Barcelona.

Messi was sentenced to 21 months jail for tax fraud but is not expected to do any time because prison terms of less than two years in Spain can be served under probation

Barca immediately issued a statement supporting their player but Messi is known to feel that the club could have been more supportive during the case.

The fee for Messi would smash the £100million mark and SunSport understands that Messi’s father, who represents his superstar son, has met with Blues’ owner Roman Abramovich.

The meeting is believed to have taken place in the last ten days on Abramovich’s personal superyacht, the Eclipse.

Chelsea chiefs have been monitoring the tax fraud case which saw both Leo and his father convicted.

Between them, Messi and his dad have been ordered to pay just under £3million in fines and the family feel victimised by Spanish authorities.

The Stamford Bridge club were alerted to the possibility that Messi could leave Barca over the tax case and the club's failure to offer a new contract.

Negotiations were initiated on the basis that if the 29-year-old decided he'd had enough then Chelsea would be in pole position to capitalise.'

Chelsea fans will know that this is not the first time we have been linked with a possible move as a few seasons ago, Adidas were reportedly willing to stump up the majority of a possible transfer fee to take him away from Barcelona who's kit supplier is Nike. In a couple of seasons, Chelsea are switching to Nike from Adidas which is something to consider. 

I personally can never see Leo Messi leaving Barcelona for any other European side, but will leave the Spanish giants to go back to Argentina to finish his career. 

Don't get me wrong, I would but your hand off to sign him if he was ever to be made available but I simply can never see that happening. 

I guess the transfer window is open and these Newspapers need to fill their pages. It's bollocks if you ask me!

What do you think?
