Lionel Messi prevents Barcelona from signing Chelsea star

Barcelona has ruled out the signing of Chelsea star Callum Hudson-Odoi because Lionel Messi blocked his move. The promising English footballer, 18, has also attracted the attention of Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Milan. La Liga giants were closely following his case, however, Messi blocked his arrival. Hudson-Odoi suffered a very serious injury and had surgery on a ruptured Achilles tendon. According to Don Balon, Barcelona will not pay for a long-time injured player. There are doubts about whether he can return to the highest level after recovering. However, Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has hinted that they might still be interested in the player but refused to add too much to it as the player is currently injured. "Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Hasan Salihamidzic have said that he is an interesting player," Hoeness said. "I think we keep thinking about it. But he's just on the operating table. Therefore it makes no sense to comment on this."
