I hope Guardiola doesn't go to chelsea and i don't think if chelsea could pay for the transfer fee if Messi would want to go.

It would be nice to have Messi here but 250m euros? damn.

I think our line-up of strikers Torres, Hazard and Hulk is more than enough.

Id rather have Chelsea keep RDM

No player should ever cost that much.

Messi would be among the worlds players to admit this.

Ahh, you stole the words right out of my mouth, that's a sick amount of money to be paying for a Single Player, no matter how legendary of a performance he gives after that. It'll still be considered over-paid.

Do it and I will celebrate when chelsea fails miserably.
