Inter Milan GM Marotta: Barcelona perfect for Messi

Inter Milan GM Beppe Marotta has played down the prospect of tempting Lionel Messi away from Barcelona.

Messi has been linked with a move to Inter as he enters the final year of his current contract.

But Marotta says: "You have to be realistic, it's a utopia.

"It would be disrespectful to put forward this fantasy, because it is indeed a fantasy. Lionel Messi is a great player, but he belongs to Barcelona.

"This is the perfect place for him. I think he will end his career at Barça."
