Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi wants to join Chelsea in a £200million deal at the end of the season, according to reports.

Messi’s future has been subject of growing speculation in recent days, with sources close to him suggesting he could make a sensational switch away from Barca.

Arsenal and Manchester United have been linked with a deal, but the Daily Express reports that the Argentine will accept a move to Chelsea instead.

The paper says Messi wants to link up with close friend Cesc Fabregas at Stamford Bridge, and that looks like being key to a deal.

This would be the most shocking deal ever in world football, but seems to be gaining legs.
