Juan Veron has revealed that his compatriot Lionel Messi previously told him that he'd like to play for Inter Milan. 

Messi, who is expected to win the 2015 Ballon d'Or next month, has long been recognised as one of the greatest players of all-time.

The dynamic Barcelona forward has been a one-club man throughout the course of his career so far, but it has recently been speculated that he could eventually leave the Catalans in pursuit of a new challenge.

The likes of Manchester United and Manchester City have been thrown into the mix, but it appears that Italian outfit Inter Milan may well be ahead of the duo in the pecking order. 

"It's been a few years, but one time he told me he would like to play for Inter," Veron told Tuttosport, as per

"But let me be clear, this was something that happened in the past."

Improving Inter

Of course, Messi moving to Serie A appears to be near enough impossible. Inter certainly don't have the financial muscle to compete with the big boys in Europe, but Veron's revelations will no doubt give the club's faithful something to cheer about nonetheless.

In fact, despite suffering defeat in their last Serie A outing, Inter head into the festive break in great spirits. Roberto Mancini's side currently sit at the summit of the division - one point ahead of Fiorentina. 

Inter certainly appear to be on their way up once again, but they won't be getting their hopes up that Messi really could join them. 

Who should Messi sign for if he leaves Barcelona? Have your say below!
