Inter Milan sporting director Javier Zanetti has talked about a possible switch for Lionel Messi in the summer.
The future of Lionel Messi is one of the hottest topics in football right now. The 33-year-old winger has spent his entire career at Barcelona, winning countless trophies and proving himself to be the best ever to play the game.
However, the club is at sixes and sevens now and Messi made it clear last summer, that he would be keen to leave Barcelona – a story that has gathered the interests of multiple clubs across Europe.
Zanetti has admitted that Inter would be interested should they get the chance to secure the services of Leo.
“We can’t say that, he is a Barcelona player and he’s spent the whole career there. I think he will continue there,” Zanetti told ONTime Sports.
“We are focused on the group of players we have. We must be focused on ourselves, we are focused on the next game. Everyone is doing very well.”
Asked to compare Messi to legendary football Diego Maradona – who died in November – Zanetti added: “I can’t make comparisons, they are both great champions.
“It’s always good when big players move to Serie A. When Cristiano Ronaldo arrived, it was good for the league.”
