Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte has spoken on the Lionel Messi rumors after beating Napoli 2-0. The Italian coach sees Messi to Inter impossible: “It is easier to move the Duomo (the Milan Cathedral) than to bring Messi to Inter Milan.”
After the negative air that has risen at FC Barcelona due to losing La Liga to Real Madrid, many rumors regarding Messi have come up. Reportedly, Inter was ready to attempt to pull off a huge deal to bring the Argentine to Inter.
However, the speculations are denied by Inter representatives too: “We are talking about fantasy rumors here. Signing Messi is absolutely not our goal. I think he is focused on continuing his football activity with Barcelona.”, said Inter Milan CEO Beppe Marotta.
After all the chaos that has been created regarding Messi’s transfer out of Barcelona, it is clear to come to a conclusion: Lionel Messi is staying with his home club Barça.

85% of signatures against Bartomeu’s board have already been validated
The second round of signature validations for the vote of no confidence against Josep María Bartomeu’s board has ended this Wednesday with 6,810 signatures reviewed in total. According to the promoters of the vote, up to now 5,795, 85%, have been considered valid; 249, 3.65%, have been declared void, and 766, 11.2%, are pending review.
The signature validation is taking place in the Camp Nou auditorium. According to the club’s bylaws, the voting table has ten business days to count and validate the signatures. Of the 20,687 signatures collected, 16,521 are needed to drive the vote of no confidence.
In case there are doubts about the validity of a signature, the services of a graphologist will be required, who will be present at the table, and it is not ruled out to call the partners to check if there are any irregularities. If the count ends up being successful, a referendum will be held among the partners, who will say yes or no to Bartomeu and his board. It’s a matter of time.
