Former Barcelona midfielder has revealed his desire to link up with Lionel Messi once again. The Chelsea midfielder’s comments will fuel further speculations regarding the Argentine’s future at Barcelona.
According to recent reports, Messi is though to be unsettled after a falling out with manager Luis Enrique. The Argentine is frustrated with the issues at the club and would consider moving abroad, should the right opportunity present itself.
If the media reports are to be believed, Chelsea are willing to break the bank for Lionel Messi, should he decide to leave Barcelona.
Speaking to Onda Cero, Fabregas stated that, “Leo will do whatever makes him happy. As his friend and former team-mate, it would be great if I get the chance to play with him again”.
Further, Fabregas claimed that the situation regarding Messi and Luis Enrique has been blown out of proportion. He also outlined that he is not trying to fuel Messi’ exit rumours or trying to lure him to Stamford Bridge.
“His situation has been made out to be worse than it really is. Messi is happy at Barcelona and the club’s happy with him.
“I get a bad feeling about it when people are saying that I am trying to convince Messi to join Chelsea. What makes people think I can discuss contracts? I am just a footballer.
“I don’t really know Luis Enrique. I know Messi, though, and I really doubt that the things people say happened really did happen.
“Leo is a quiet guy and I have never seen anything like that during the three years we were team-mates.”
