Todd Boehly has a final opportunity to bring Lionel Messi to Chelsea
Chelsea owner Todd Boehly has not hidden his desire to bring a big-time player to Stamford Bridge and one name that pops up more often than not is that of Lionel Messi. The Argentine World Cup winner is out of contract at PSG this summer and the 35-year-old has a number of options to choose from.
As per football.london, there is of course Barcelona in the list. That is where Messi became arguably the best player in the history of the sport. Apart from the Catalan giants, clubs in Saudi Arabia and even the United States have an eye on the situation. However, the move to either of these two countries would be purely from a financial perspective.
Moreover, the move to Barca is far easier said than done due to the fact that the Catalans find themselves in the midst of a number of financial issues and that could make it tough for them to bring Messi back home. This is where the Blues come in and give Messi the chance to play in the Premier League.
The mere thought of Lionel Messi donning the iconic blue jersey of Chelsea sends shivers of excitement down the spines of fans worldwide.
Messi to London?
Messi’s unparalleled skill, creativity, and sheer genius on the field have established him as one of the greatest footballers of all time, and his arrival at Chelsea could transform the club’s fortunes.
The financial implications of acquiring Messi should not deter Boehly, as the Argentine’s global appeal would undoubtedly generate substantial revenue streams for the club. Merchandise sales, increased ticket demand, and heightened media attention are just a few of the benefits that come hand-in-hand with Messi’s arrival.
As negotiations could potentially loom anytime soon now, Todd Boehly would stand aware of the significance of this moment. Bringing Lionel Messi to Chelsea would not only be a coup for the club but also a testament to Boehly’s determination to assemble a team capable of conquering all challenges and reaching new heights.
With Mauricio Pochettinho also joining the Blues next summer, the opportunity to re-join forces with Messi, who he managed at PSG for the first year of the Argentine’s stay.

The countdown begins as Messi’s contract with PSG approaches its expiration date. Todd Boehly and Chelsea stand poised, ready to seize the opportunity of a lifetime. The world’s best player joining Chelsea would be wonderful. However, with the lack of European football, we cannot say anything as Messi could want to play in the UCL if he remains in Europe.
