Mourinho rubbishes Lionel Messi transfer link

Mourinho dismisses Messi talk

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has rubbished speculation linking the club with a move for Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi next summer.

Recent reports claimed that the four-time Ballon d'Or winner could head to Stamford Bridge next season, with sportswear manufacturer Adidas open to endorsing the player's transfer for a whooping fee of around £200m.

However, Blues manager Jose Mourinho has quashed talk of any potential deal for the talented Argentine by insisting that the rumours had no truth in them.

Chelsea are currently top of the Premier League with 33 points.
