Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has joked about trying to recruit Lionel Messi.
Messi was released by Barcelona last week and is now set to join PSG.
Jorginho was left in disbelief when he saw the news that Messi had departed Barcelona.
In fact, the 29-year-old wondered if it was just ‘fake news’.
Speaking to TNT Sports in Brazil, he said: “I’ve already texted him (laughs).
“I’m kidding, I’m not even kidding about it. If he does not to come to Chelsea, let him go away (from the Premier League).
“I saw it (the departure) and I was like ‘what happened?’
“I was incredulous. I was wondering if it was fake news.”
