Moratti Offers Ibrahimovic For Messi

Inter President Massimo Moratti has told Barcelona that they can sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic in exchange for Lionel Messi.

Barca superstar Messi is regarded by many as the best player in the world at the moment, and this was given further credence last week when he outshone Cristiano Ronaldo in the Champions League match against Manchester United.

Inter owner Massimo Moratti has been a long-term admirer of Messi, and has never hidden his dream of one day bringing the Argentine to San Siro.

One player whose future in Italy’s fashion capital is not too certain is that of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Swede was quoted last week as saying that he would one day like to play in England or Spain.

There were immediately reports of a €70m offer from Real Madrid for the forward, however there is new speculation that Barcelona are also interested.

Moratti has stated that Ibrahimovic will be staying with the Nerazzurri, but he did hint that a deal could be done with Barca, if Messi was allowed to move the other way.

"Ibrahimovic will still stay with us ... absolutely,” said the oil tycoon.

“Maybe he likes Barcelona, but he also likes me. And I also like Messi

If I were Barca, I wouldnt let messi go. If I were Inter, id do anything in my power to get him.

I just dont see this deal going through.

Unfortunetly Messi gets injured quite often ... this is probably his only flaw ... if theres one player id switch ibra for its definitly Messi ... such an incredible talent ... but instead of exchanging them i say we should have both of them at Inter

Indeed. He actually was joking. But the press has no sense of humor.
