3 Reasons Why Messi To Chelsea Will Never Happen

The silly season is about to being in a month’s time, the January transfer window beckons mortal souls to try and move away from their hellish nightmares at their current clubs and find more divinity clad clubs out to save their soul. It’s not just the players who want to make moves, clubs will be out with their scouting reports to snap up certain deals before they go and become expensive players or free agents in the June transfer window.


With the silly season starting, there can be some crazy stories being spread around and the most riveting story being told right now is that Lionel Messi may want to move away from his home for almost 10 years, Barcelona, 10 years since he made his debut for the Catalan outfit, he has been a Barca product through and through but him moving to any club would certainly shatter any transfer record ever made.

The valuation of the Argentine genius is estimated to be roughly close to 200 million Euros, that is the base price with which teams would have to start bidding, there are only a handful of clubs with that sort of money and Chelsea were one of the clubs whose name popped up. Backed by the financial power of Roman Abramovich, he can sign the cheques to bring the star forward to Chelsea however here are 3 reasons why the deal will never happen.

1. It is Jose Mourinho’s team and the team is greater than any individual

A Jose Mourinho team is never built around just one player, signing Messi would mean that he is the focal point of the team and that is something that has never been a feature of a Jose Mourinho team. Ever since he started his managerial career at Benfica and then gained mainstream success with Porto, the team has always been greater than any individual. His teams have stars but none of them are more important than the way they play and their work ethic, he has often shunted out players who he deems are not necessary to the club, no matter how big the player might be, case in point Mata and Luiz.
