Messi won't move from Barcelona - Former Inter Milan president, Moratti

Former Inter Milan President, Massimo Moratti has waved aside the possibility of Lionel Messi leaving Barcelona.

Moratti disclosed Inter Milan's interest in Messi but stated that the Argentine would not be leaving Barcelona.

“Messi is everyone’s dream, but he won’t move from Barcelona. He’s still the best player there is,” Moratti told Gr Parlamento.

He also had words to say on Inter Milan's forward, Lautaro Martinez who is currently linked with a move to Barcelona.

Martinez has scored 16 goals in 31 games across all competitions before football came to a halt due to coronavirus pandemic.

“It will all depend on him, I read that Barcelona are making exorbitant offers for him which will be difficult to say no to,” Moratti said.

Moratti also spoke about an interest in Erling Haaland but stated that Romelu Lukaku is preventing a move for him.

“What he does makes you want to sign him but Inter already have Romelu Lukaku,” he said.
