Barcelona board confident keeping Messi from Inter Milan

Barcelona's board is confident of keeping hold of Lionel Messi.

Marca says Barca are completely unfazed by the words of former Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti, who claimed that signing Messi was not out of the question for the Italian club.

Moratti believes that landing the Argentine isn't an impossible goal for the Serie A side and that he could be included as part of a deal that would see compatriot Lautaro Martinez move in the opposite direction.

"I don't believe Messi is a forbidden dream [for Inter] at all," Moratti told Radio Rai.

However, despite Messi's contract expiring in the summer of 2021, the Catalans remain untroubled by the comments.
