Lionel Messi was even very close to joining Chelsea because he talked with Jose Mourinho.
Messi’s desire to leave Barcelona exploded after the Spanish government accused Messi’s family of tax evasion in 2013.
This story happened in January 2014, where Mourinho was serving as Chelsea coach.
Interestingly, although Mourinho, who coached Real Madrid from 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2013, was an enemy of Lionel Messi cs, the chat between Mourinho and Messi was exciting.
