Inter Milan dreams of including Argentine Lionel Messi, Barcelona captain, amid media reports talking about the “Nerazzurri” confidence that he can succeed in completing this deal.
The Italian newspaper “Gazeta dello Sport” indicates that the Chinese owners of Inter are determined to push for the contract with the “Argentinian magician” whose contract with Barca ends in the summer of 2021.
The headline in the front page of the Italian newspaper titled “Possible …” Suning Holdings Group – a Chinese company that owns the Italian team – is preparing for a long pursuit to attract Messi.
Another indication that gave rise to the possibility of Messi (33 years) leaving Barcelona to Italy is the transfer of Jorge Messi – Lionel’s father – to the Italian city of Milan, although the reason for this transfer – according to what was said – is purely commercial.
The newspaper concluded that the success of Juventus in the inclusion of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo was a decisive motive in Inter’s insistence on signing the Argentine captain.
It is reported that the Catalan radio “Cadena Ser” claimed last month that Messi had suspended negotiations to renew his contract, and that he was on his way to leave the “Camp Nou” after the accumulated problems and differences between the Barca captain and the team management.
