Former Inter Milan star Luis Figo says he'd love to see Barcelona ace Lionel Messi wearing Nerazzurri colours.

Figo, also a former Barca player, said: "Lionel is the best of all, the number one and this is unquestionable.

"His interplay is now stronger than last year. My dream is to see Messi playing for Inter."

On the current Inter team, Figo added: "Inter no longer depends on Zlatan Ibrahimovic. I really like Samuel Eto'o.

"I also think people should talk to (Mario) Balotelli. He needs to work hard and follow what Jose Mourinho tells him."
