In 2006, 19-year-old at the time Lionel Messi was close to moving to inter for € 150 million.

This was reported by Joan Laporta, who at the time was President of the Catalan club:

“In 2006, inter have made an offer. They were willing to pay clausula in the amount of 150 million euros. Therefore, we later raised its offer to 250 million, but I always felt confident in my relationship with his father.

I told him: “They will have to pay clausula, because I’m not going to sell Leo. He has a good chance to get the glory here. There he will benefit only financially. Your son can be the greatest in history, and here he will have a team that will help to reach this recognition,” said Laporta.

Earlier, Messi praised the forward “Intera” Lautaro Martinez.
