Lionel Messi follows Chelsea on Instagram and fans lose it
Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi is rumored to be unhappy with his team, although there are few things that are not rumored to be true during soccer's transfer windows.
Still, Messi added some fuel to the flame when he followed English Premier League club Chelsea on Instagram.
Messi is allegedly very angry that he did not start in the team's recent loss to Real Sociedad, which has some thinking that Chelsea may make an offer for the four-time Ballon d'Or winner, according to 101greatgoals.com and Spanish radio station Cadena Copa.
While this all falls squarely into the category of "rampant speculation," it is enough to send fans of both teams to twitter in fits of sorrow and joy.
