Fabregas isn't trying lure Messi to Chelsea

The punchline here would be that he isn't trying to lure Lionel Messi to Chelsea, he is actually luring Lionel Messi to Chelsea.  Like Yoda said, "do or do not; there is no try," right Cesc?

But there's no punchline.  There's just annoyance from the Chelsea midfielder after the media have blown a few innocuous comments out of proportion.  I doubt Fàbregas is surprised that they were blown up like that -- he's been around long enough in both England and Spain to know better, surely -- but it's probably still annoying to be quizzed on such things on a regular basis.

"I get a bad feeling about it when people are saying that I am trying to convince Messi to join Chelsea. What makes people think I can discuss contracts? I am just a footballer."

"Leo will do whatever makes him happy. As his friend and former team-mate, it would be great if I get the chance to play with him again."

And there you go again, Cesc!  What did we just talk about!?  Don't feed the trolls.
