Messi's £200m Chelsea move, Torres to Anfield, Arsenal eye United target

Posted Tuesday, December 23, 2014 by

Cesc Fabregas has revealed that he would love to see Lionel Messi at Stamford Bridge.

Messi, 27, has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, and in a recent interview with Marca, Fabregas, who played alongside the Argentine international during his three-year stint at the Nou Camp, claimed that he'd love to see the four-time Ballon d'Or winner join him at Stamford Bridge.

He said: "I wish! Why not? I'd love that to happen. I'd be all for it.

"As a Barca man, I believe that Messi deserves to retire there for all that he has given the club.

"He is a legend that has changed Barca's history. But, as his team-mate and friend, without doubt I'd love to have Leo by my side.

"This season Barca are Messi and 10 others. Messi has saved his team on many occasions."

Jamie Carragher has urged Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers not to re-sign Fernando Torres.

Several publications have claimed that Rodgers is keen on signing the Spaniard, who left the Reds 2011 to join Chelsea, in the upcoming January transfer window.

But Carragher has urged the Reds boss not to make a move for the Spanish international, and claimed the Northern Irishman would be making a mistake by bringing Chelsea star back to Anfield.

He said: “I wouldn’t like to see [Fernando Torres return], if I’m being totally honest.

"If Liverpool bring a striker in you want a young, fresh, and energetic young fellow who is looking to make a name for himself.

"Fernando Torres has had an unbelievable career with the trophies that he has won but I think we saw the best of him at Anfield and that was quite a few years ago now.“It’s been unfortunate for the lad, the way his career has gone since then. He’s still picked up plenty of trophies with Chelsea and Spain.

"With that move to Milan you’re thinking a slower paced game would suit him a bit more now, because of the problems he’s had with injuries, but it looks straight away that AC Milan are keen to offload him.

"If Chelsea and Milan are thinking the same I don’t think anything would change too much at Liverpool.

"I wish him well but I think we should be looking for something else.”

Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has urged Arsene Wenger to snap up Manchester United targets Mats Hummels and Morgan Schneiderlin.

Both players have been repeatedly linked with moves to the Emirates in recent months, and Parlour believes Wenger should do everything in his power to sign the coveted duo.

He said: "Mats Hummels would be great, a world cup winner and a good player.

"For midfield, I would go for [Morgan] Schneiderlin if you can get him. He’s at a good age.

"Lots of players are linked. [Sami] Khedira would have been great.

"Players that have played in big games won’t be phased by anything. Schneiderlin hasn’t, but I can see him improving."

Manchester United target Arturo Vidal has once again been discussing his future.

The Chile star has kept his cards close to his chest and refused to rule out a move to Old Trafford when the window opens.

Fernando Torres' future is hanging in the balance and could affect Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal in the near future.

AC Milan want to cut short his two-year loan and plan to sign Atletico Madrid's Alessio Cerci.

Arsenal are interested in Cerci while Liverpool have been linked with a move to bring Torres back to Anfield.
