Well we need him. He can be the difference between Chelsea being great to being the best. He imo is the best player in the world. He tormented Man Utd in both legs and it seemed as tho he was playing the mancs on his own. I read about that too, the £80m thing, its insane but why not? We have money to burn and loads of it.

Joe Cole and Messi on either side? Not bad ay. Malouda and Kalou just arent doing it and SWP is just not consistant enough. As a winger, Messi is the best there is end of story. the guy has absolutely everything. Genius.

Not realistic ... No way are we gonna spend 80mill ... If there is SOME truth in this story, I beliebe part exchange + tens of mills (not 80)

I wouldn't mind him :P But does he want to play for Grant ? Or maybe if Rijkaard came here, then he would bring some players with him (he's the one who made Messi great).

Close friend of Senor Laporta, are you? How do you know that Barcelona won't sell - for that amount of money it would be incredibly hard to turn down. Furthermore we need a second consistent winger in addition to Joe Cole. Kakuta will take years to develop to the level that Messi is at already, and words can be idle.

Barcelona won't sell? Every team and every player has a price. Chelsea (Roman) has the money to pretty much buy any top quality player for any price. Barcelona won't want to sell him, but if Chelsea did offer 80-100mil I doubt they'd say no. But again, I don't see it happening.

Sorry but thats hilarious. How many times have you seen the chap play?

I think people are getting abit carried away with Kakuta. Yes he looks a prospect, but so did Carlton Cole and Mikael Forrsell amongst others. He did well in the youth cup, yes, but one or two of the games he was non-existent to be honest. Lets give it 2-3 years to see if hes still impressing before we say hes going to be world class.

As for Messi, as Jim said great player, but cant see Barcelona letting him go. Dont think there short of money, and they're obviously are determined to get back to the level they were 2-3 years ago - something they wont do if they sell Messi.

Kaka is more realistic, and for £35-£40M, he'd be great. Can sense at least one top world class player coming in, and Kaka seems most likely.

i'd love to see messi here but i think kaka is a more realistic target (they want sheva back so badly, could temp them with a player plus cash deal)

and lets not forget ronaldinho, heard on tv today bacelona only want 32mil for him... worth a mention

Its because hes such a big head, and practically does what he wants. Someone on Revista de la Liga (program on Sky Sports about Spanish football) was saying how training at the big clubs in Spain isnt taken as seriously, and the 'big stars' such as Ronaldinho basically train when they want and how they want.

The Sheva situation was different though, he was one of the best strikers around at that time, and also Romans buddy. Ronaldinho isn't what he was a few years ago, and isnt worth anywhere near £30M in my opinion.

For Roman to have the team playing how he wants, it will take 1 of 3 players to achieve.

Kaka, Ronaldo, or Messi. I just can’t see him being satisfied unless 1 of these 3 players are in the team… Until another prodigy comes around anyway…

how old is he now? does anybody know?

i do think a player like ronaldinho, kaka, messi... is the kind of player we need for next season

kalou/malouda/swp just arent good enough
