Barcelona star Lionel Messi denied rumours of him moving to Italian club Inter Milan and also mentioned that he had no role in former teammate Ronaldinho’s bail in Paraguay. The forward posted a story on Instagram on Thursday stating both the developments as ‘lies’.
Messi’s rift with the management has raised speculation of the Argentine leaving the club for free this summer despite his contract being active until 2021.
Meanwhile, former Brazil footballer Ronaldinho, who has shared the pitch with Messi during his stint at Barcelona, on Tuesday was granted house arrest after spending 32 days in prison on the charges of visiting Paraguay with fake passport.
This is the third time in 2020 that Messi has used social media to send a message.
Earlier in February, the Argentine got into an argument with Barcelona’s sporting director, Eric Abidal, when the Frenchman suggested that the players were responsible for the sacking of Ernesto Valverde.
