Mourinho given ‘all clear’ to get RECORD-BREAKING move signed and sealed by Frenchman

Chelsea have been cleared to sign Lionel Messi with the Barcelona ace ready for a fresh challenge.

Messi, who was linked with a £200million switch to Chelsea in the summer, could be tempted to change teams at the end of the season, according to Eric Abidal.

As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he claimed: ‘Having won everything with Barcelona, perhaps he would like a different challenge.

‘Being able to win trophies with another club, that remains a possibility.’ © 2017 Frontier Theme
