Chelsea transfers: Jose Mourinho responds to Lionel Messi speculation
Jose Mourinho rejects speculation linking Lionel Messi with a shock move to Chelsea
Jose Mourinho has rejected speculation linking Chelsea with a sensational swoop for Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
The Argentina captain’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks, with both Chelsea and Manchester City touted as possible Premier League destinations for the four-time Ballon d’Or winner.
However, Mourinho has poured cold water on the reports, labelling them as “obviously not true”.
Asked if he was surprised by the rumours linking Messi with Chelsea, Mourinho replied: “Your world [the media] has changed so much, that our world also changed so much.
“I think in this moment it’s so easy, so easy, to have non-truths circulation.
“It’s so easy for some people to put news without confirming, speaking about rumours. And obviously it’s not true.”
