It’s a surprise choice from the Argentine

Pablo Zabaleta revealed that while he and Lionel Messi were team-mates they used to dabble in a bit of FIFA. Turns out, while they were playing FIFA they each used to have favorite teams.

You might think Lionel Messi either preferred to play as Barcelona or as a club from Argentina, perhaps even the Argentinian national team. No, Messi’s favorite team to play on FIFA with was none other than Chelsea FC.

Check out the video below where Zabaleta talks all about Messi.

Now, some blogs might perhaps twist this and say that Messi really loves Chelsea. Perhaps so much that he would even consider playing for them in more than FIFA. Like I’m not trying to say that Messi is going to go to Chelsea, because that would be irresponsible.

What I’m trying to say is that Messi is already signed for Chelsea, they’re just waiting for FIFA 19 to come out to announce it.
