Chelsea to offer £150m for Barcelona superstar

Chelsea are putting together a world record £150million bid for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi next summer, according to Metro.

Chelsea failed in an approach to lure Messi away from Camp Nou in the summer but are still hopeful of tempting him to try life in the Premier League.

Recent reports revealed that the Blues had offered the La Liga giants a huge £118m for Messi during the summer, which was immediately rejected.

But, according to football agent and journalist Philip Harmeling, Jose Mourinho’s side will not give up in the deal and are expected to return for the Argentine forward at the end of the season.

It is being rumoured that Messi is becoming unhappy with life at Barcelena and is considering a new challenge elsewhere.
