Lionel Messi has just started following Chelsea’s official Instagram account.

Some of the more eagle-eyed amongst Messi’s 8.7 million followers noticed that the Barcelona star had started following the West London club. And of course this led to everyone saying that it means he’s heading to Chelsea during the transfer window.

Check out Messi's recent Instagram follows:

It follows rumours that the Argentinian is unhappy at Barcelona. He was dropped, along with Neymar and Danny Alves, for Barcelona's loss to Real Sociedad at the weekend, and missed an open training session on Monday. Does all this mean he could be on his way out of the Nou Camp? 

He also followed Cesc Fabregas, which, only adds to the conspiracy theory, right?
