Zanetti: ‘can’t say’ Inter want Messi

Javier Zanetti’ can’t say’ Inter want to sign Leo Messi as he is convinced the Argentinean will extend his contract with Barcelona.

The contract of the 33-year-old expires at the end of the season, but do Inter want to sign him?

“We can’t say that, he is a Barcelona player and he’s spent the whole career there. I think he will continue there. We are focused on the group of players we have,” the Inter Vice-President told ONTime Sports.

“We must be focused on ourselves, we are focused on the next game. Everyone is doing very well.”

Was Diego Maradona better than the Barcelona star?

“I can’t make comparisons, they are both great champions,” Zanetti said.

“It’s always good when big players move to Serie A. When Cristiano Ronaldo arrived, it was good for the league,” the former defender added.

Inter are the Serie A leaders with a six-point lead over second-placed Milan.

“Antonio Conte is doing a great job in developing our players. We are on top of the Serie A table and he and the lads deserve the praise,” Zanetti concluded.
