Recent coach Jose Morais, assistant to Inter Milan, will now see them landing Barcelona star Lionel Messi.
There’s no doubt many teams are interested in Leo Messi. The Barcelona star has repeatedly been linked to Inter Milan and they see it as theoretically probable, with Lautaro Martinez wanted by the Catalans.
Jose Morais, the former assistant to Jose Mourinho, confessed that he can see Messi in Milan.
“I think we can do it. You know why, right? Since they have Zanetti, and Zanetti is appealing to players from Argentina. I think he will draw a player like Messi in the event he wants another opportunity. I believe that going to Inter is almost like going home for an Argentine match.”
Morais praised the club, as well.
“Inter is a very friendly team for Argentine players and that is possible because there is Zanetti. Both Argentine players are there who go to Inter and carry the club’s success. I think that Messi may be one of those stars.’
Morais knows Inter better than anyone, having worked as an assistant to Jose Mourinho during the 2009-10 triple-winning season for the Nerazzurri.
When asked about the possibility for Messi to move Barca to Inter, Morais-now K’s head coach of the League champions Jeonbuk Motors – emphasized the presence of countryman Zanetti of Argentina International.
Although Messi’s potential to grace the blue half of San Siro has delighted fans, Lautaro Martinez’s prospect of departing star forward has dominated headlines. Martinez was closely linked to Barca, which is apparently eager to sign Messi’s international fellow countryman as a long-term substitute for veteran Luis Suarez.
