Chelsea have now been linked with a move for Barcelona star Lionel Messi, as reported by Metro .
Reports suggest that Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich held talks with Messi’s father on his yatch on Wednesday.
Chelsea are apparently keeping an eye on the Argentine’s situation at Barca as it has emerged that he feels disappointed that he didn’t get more support from the club after being convicted for tax fraud.
Manchester City are said to be interested as well and could be ready to outbid the Blues in order to bring him over to the Premier League.
Abramovich is said to have met with Messi’s father Jorge, who is also his agent, on his yacht as the club esquires if the player would consider quitting Barca for a move to Stamford Bridge.
