Antonio Conte reiterated his belief that rumours linking Lionel Messi to Inter are a little farfetched, hinting he struggled to even get the club to sign Romelu Lukaku.
Inter closed out a solid 2019-20 Serie A campaign on Saturday, beating Atalanta 2-0 in Bergamo to secure the runner-up spot in Italy’s top flight.
That result means they finished just a point adrift of champions Juventus, who lost 3-1 at home to Roma in their final league match.
Having already backed Conte significantly in the transfer market, Inter are expected to further strengthen ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
One somewhat outlandish report in Italy has claimed Inter are trying to lure Barcelona icon and Ballon d’Or holder Messi away from LaLiga, with his future a little uncertain due to turbulence at Camp Nou.
