As speculation grows that Lionel Messi could leave Barcelona, his father Jorge has reportedly moved into an apartment right next to the Inter HQ.
The Argentina international has not held back in venting his frustration at the direction this club has taken and they could end the season without a trophy for the first time in 12 years.
According to various reports in Spain, Messi has the ability to walk away from his contract at the end of this season.
Inter remain the most likely candidates if he should leave, especially as he’d continue the battle with Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus and in Serie A.
La Gazzetta dello Sport continue to push the suggestion Inter really could make this work, especially after Messi’s father Jorge moved into an apartment in Milan that is on the doorstep of the Inter headquarters.
There’s no denying this move was due to the financially welcoming tax status given to rich foreigners coming to Italy, but it’s the same reason Messi Junior could also follow.
It would be a huge coup for the Suning corporation, who own Inter, and sponsorship deals would cover the costs of such a massive operation.
The summer of 2021 is considered a more probable window, as that is when Messi’s contract expires, allowing him to become a free agent.
However, reports in Spain suggest there’s a clause that would let La Pulga walk away early for a minimal fee.
