Moratti: 'Inter thought about Messi'

Former Inter President Massimo Moratti continues to maintain Lionel Messi could join the Nerazzurri. “Knowing Steven Zhang’s courage, he will certainly have thought about it.”

Messi was contacted by Inter in the early years of his Barcelona career, but opted to remain at Camp Nou out of a sense of gratitude for all the club had done for him.

Moratti never lost hope of one day making the dream move come true, and after another interview made waves, the Treble-winning patron doubled down on TeleLombardia.

“Knowing Steven Zhang’s courage, he will certainly have thought about it,” smiled Moratti when asked about the Messi connection.

“After all, Messi’s contract is due to expire in 2021. It’d be wonderful, giving back some vitality to Serie A as a whole and more hope to Inter.”

This would also allow the duel between Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to be revitalised, having been interrupted by CR7’s transfer to Juventus.

“Of course, my insistence on this subject is purely as someone outside of the club, so it’s not worth that much.”
