Inter chief executive Ernesto Paolillo admits the club would still like to sign Lionel Messi.
Serie A champions Inter have been linked with a move for the Argentina international, although the player is thought to be happy at Barca and would command a massive fee.
Inter chief Paolillo admits Messi’s price is currently too high, but would not rule out a move in the future.
He told Gazzetta dello Sport: “In January, we will take two players and two will go out.
“Today Messi is a dream. His price is currently unattainable, but in football we have been accustomed to seeing everything.”
Meanwhile, Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola reaffirmed the fact that it would take a huge bid to persuade Barca to sell.
He told Mediaset Premium: “Messi is a player with massive quality, his performances are of a very high level.
“Inter could take him if they give us €250million and convince Leo to leave Barcelona.
“In football you never know, at the end the most important thing is the will of the player, but he says he doesn’t want to go away.”
