The father of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi has reportedly left Chelsea on hot alert.
Messi, 27, sensationally hinted earlier this week that he would be open to a move away from Barcelona if the right offer came in.
And now, Messi’s dad, who is also his agent, has handed the Premier League giants a huge boost by revealing he would assess any bid that came in for his client.
As quoted on the Daily Star website, he said: “The plan is to stay here in Barcelona, but of course people like to read between lines and exaggerate.
“Leo is happy, but it’s clear that if the club receives an offers tomorrow and says We want to sell you”, well then we’d have to study it.”
