Barcelona star Messi has spent his entire career with the Catalan club, but has been linked to several clubs over the last few years.

“It’s been a few years, but one time he told me he would like to play for Inter,” Veron told Tuttosport

“But let me be clear, this was something that happened in the past.

“Massimo Moratti was still the owner of Inter and, frankly, I see it impossible for Leo to leave Barcelona.”
