Javier Zanetti, Inter vice president, spoke about the market options of the Lombard club in an interview with TyC Sports. He assured that the rumors that linked Messi with Inter at the time seemed “a surprise” to him.
“Nobody thought he would leave Barcelona. The rumors about Inter? A surprise. We were in the middle of a pandemic crisis, he couldn’t afford such a large investment, it would have put the future of the club at risk. We are a club with a precise strategy and in recent years we have been doing a great job on and off the pitch, “said the Argentine.
He was also happy with his great star and compatriot, Lautaro Martínez. The president and former captain neroazzurro hinted that he will continue in the Meazza. “Lautaro Martínez is now a benchmark, for us and for the Argentine team. When you buy a young player, you have to try to predict what will happen in three or four years and his growth has been important, he has matured, It is not easy to adapt to Italian football. The great players will always be requested by the great clubs, but I see him every day and he is very happy. His joy leaves me very calm, he shows it in every game. It feels important, “he added.
In addition, he ruled out Inter as a possible destination for Julián Álvarez, River Plate star that interests Madrid and Barça, although he confirmed the interest of many clubs in him. “There are many clubs interested in Julián Álvarez, it is logical. He has had a great season, it is not easy to be a forward for River and show what he is showing. ‘La Araña’ has a great future, but Inter’s present is in another part”, sentenced.
