Inter Milan are reportedly considering whether to up their long-standing interest in Barcelona forward Lionel Messi.
Given Messi's affinity to the Catalan giants, no clubs have ever realistically had a chance of tempting the Argentine away from Camp Nou.
However, in the moments after Barcelona surrendered the La Liga crown to Real Madrid earlier this month, the club legend was not shy in voicing his frustrations with regards to the development of the current squad.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter have only been left encouraged by the 33-year-old's recent comments.
With Messi having less than a year remaining on his contract, speculation persists that the he may take the opportunity to leave Barcelona in the coming months.
While a transfer remains unlikely, the clubs have recently been in frequent dialogue regarding a potential deal involving Lautaro Martinez.
