Inter Milan are planning to secure the signature of Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi once Financial Fair Play will allow them to do it.
The Italian giants know well that Argentina international would cost around £626m, but the Nerazzurri want to create a rivalry between Messi and Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo.
Juventus have recently completed the signing of Portugal international attacker Ronaldo from Real Madrid for a £105m transfer fee.
Therefore, according to Tuttosport, the San Siro side are adamant to bring Messi in Serie A to rival the former Real Madrid’s all-time top scorer.
Marco Tronchetti Provera, the CEO of Pirelli, has admitted that Inter Milan’s owners Suning are planning to make a major signing.
Provera told Tuttosport: “I hope that Suning, once Financial Fair Play will allow it, can make a huge signing.”
“Messi? How can you say no to Messi?”
Messi, who signed a new contract last year which will tie him at Camp Nou until 2021, has been at Barca in 2001 when was only 14.
The 31-year-old managed to score 552 goals in 637 appearances for Barcelona first team.
