Chelsea are monitoring the situation developing at Barcelona as the relationship between Argentine star forward Lionel Messi and coach Luis Enrique continues to deteriorate.
AS report that 2015 will be the year Chelsea make their move for Lionel Messi.
The Spanish newspaper report that Lionel Messi is unhappy with the way coach Luis Enrique runs the dressing room at the Catalan giants and this could lead to Chelsea reviving their interest.
Messi is reportedly grown “irritated by the excessive authoritarianism of the coach”.
The situation between the coach and the club’s star player is on tenterhooks.
El Mundo Deportivo has revealed that the club’s first training session of 2015 was marred by a war of words between the two when Enrique failed to award a free-kick to Messi during a 5-a-side game.
Barcelona have slipped into Real Madrid’s shadow this season with a number of defeats including a 1-0 loss to David Moyes’ Real Sociedad on Sunday evening.
