LaLiga president Javier Tebas has claimed Lionel Messi’s potential Barcelona exit would not be a blow to the league.

Former Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has hinted that the Nerrazurri could pull off an audacious move for Messi.

The 32-year-old is currently at odds with the Barca board after cutting his wages by 70 per cent to help support non-playing staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Argentine skipper also had a public spat with director Eric Abidal in the wake of Ernesto Valverde’s sacking earlier this season.

And with just over a year remaining on his contract, there is a feeling Messi could leave the LaLiga giants.

But Tebas is confident LaLiga would survive without Messi, claiming it has already gone from strength to strength after Cristiano Ronaldo Left Real Madrid for Juventus two years ago.

“I do not think that the arrival of Messi can solve the problems of Serie A, which are linked to the bad relationship between high debts and insufficient collections.

“Serie A figures are stressed and these economic problems are certainly not solved by Messi.

“I would like Messi to stay here but if he leaves it would not be a drama.

“It was said that without Ronaldo, La Liga would have lost money.

“But instead we have earned more, even in Portugal.

“Players help but are not essential to a championship.”

It now remains to be seen if Inter do move for Messi after they triggered his £132million release clause in 2006 when he was just 18 years old.

Commenting on the possibility of Inter landing Messi, Moratti said: “I don’t believe Messi is a forbidden dream at all.

“Maybe it never was even before all this [coronavirus] misfortune.

“He is in the final stretch of his contract and, without doubt, it would take a tremendous effort to bring him here.

“I don’t know if the current situation changes anything for better or for worse.”

Messi has scored 627 goals in 718 games while winning 10 LaLiga titles and four Champions Leagues.
