Josep Maria Minguella, the man who helped Lionel Messi secure his contract with Barcelona as a 12-year-old, commented on his former client’s current situation this week. Minguella, who as far as I can tell hasn’t been involved with Messi on a business level for years, has some interesting insight on the matter and thinks Messi is headed to Inter Milan. 

“For me, Messi already has a team: Inter.

“In Italy they pay less tax, and in fact, there is Cristiano Ronaldo. It’s harder for me to see him in England, no matter how long his friend [Sergio] Aguero and [Pep] Guardiola are at City.”
