According to reports, Lionel Messi has moved a step closer to joining Chelsea following speculation suggesting the West Londoners have agreed to meet his å£200million release clause.
Chelsea have upped their interest in Messi within recent weeks, amid speculation that the Barcelona superstar has become frustrated with life in Catalan, the Metro declares.
Unlike previous years, Barca are no longer the dominant force in Spanish football, with Carlo Ancelotti’s Real Madrid leading the race in La Liga after their Champions League success last season.
Therefore, Messi could be introduced to a new challenge with Chelsea one of few clubs capable of paying the millions to secure his signature.
The Blues’ Premier League rivals Manchester City and French champions Paris Saint-Germain, both backed by millionaire Arab owners, are also interested, although Chelsea appear to be in a stronger position to dominate.
In addition, a move to Chelsea would reunite Messi with former Barca teammate Cesc Fabregas, who has already admitted he would love the Argentine at Stamford Bridge.
