Lionel Messi was the first choice for San Siro this season. If the vice president of Inter Milan could have gotten his wishes then Lionel Messi would have been playing for this Italian club this season. The Italian club chief came onto Supertele on Monday to discuss inquiries that his team had made regarding Lionel Messi.
It was after he departed from FC Barcelona. Zanetti revealed that he had a close relationship with Messi which he was willing to explore when he announced his intent to leave Barcelona. Zanetti noted that there was a major hurdle that existed if he wanted to get Messi to join the Serie A team in Italy.
