One would think it will take rather more than that to sign Leo Messi, but according to the ol’ Currant Bun, Chelsea are investigating just that possibility. Apparently Roman Abramovich has been wining and dining Messi’s agent (his dad) on his ‘superyacht’ (we’ve seen the pictures – it is indeed quite super), at this stage seemingly feeling things out to get first dibs on Messi should he ever wish to leave Barcelona.

It’s probably not a coincidence that this news emerges the day after Messi was sentenced to 21 months in jail, which he won’t actually serve inside, but there’s no such thing as a bad time to secure a little leverage for any future new contract talks. At a rather different end of the scale, apparentlyEmanuele Giaccherini fancies joining Antonio Conte at the Bridge.
