Barcelona prepared to sell Messi 'for symbolic price'

Barcelona are prepared to sell Lionel Messi for a set fee this summer, it has been claimed.

Inter Milan identities have talked up the prospect this week, including former president Massimo Moratti.

There's been claims Messi can walk away from Barca for nothing due to a break clause in his contract. But Tuttosport says Barca would sell the Argentine - should he demand to leave - for a 'symbolic price' of €100m.

However just last night, Messi slammed the claims he wanted to leave Barca.

The star took a screenshot from TNT Sports and wrote on social media: "#FakeNews'"and "Lie 1: Messi to Inter, Lie 2: Messi gave money to Ronaldinho in jail".
