He wants to leave the Camp Nou with clubs around Europe ready to pounce including Manchester City who appear to be in pole position to sign the six-time Ballon d'Or winner.

But Minguella, who secured Messi's signing for Barcelona as a 12-year-old, believes the Argentina international will pen a deal at Inter Milan.

Speaking to Cadena COPE via AS, he said: "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."

He added: "Now in Italy they are trying to revitalise the world of football with great signings and with these advantages in the advertising contracts of the football players.

"What Barcelona has to do is rethink its situation. If with Leo Messi they didn't know where the team's course was going to go, imagine it without him."

"It's not a simple operation economically, that's clear. But the biggest obstacle is Messi's intentions," he said.

"You have to understand if he really wants to leave Barca. I'm not clear on that.

"I imagine Inter have already tried [to sign him]. I've seen the Suning advert with the Argentine's silhouette on the Duomo and this makes me think an initiative has already been taken.

"If not, I think they will do so soon."
