Earlier this week, Argentina ace Messi said he believed Nerazzurri president Moratti was joking about signing him, but admitted he was flattered nonetheless.

And while the 23-year-old forward insisted he had no intention of leaving Spain, Moratti has done nothing to dispel rumours he is set for a switch to Giuseppe Meazza.

"Contrary to the way in which his words were reported, Messi was very kind," Moratti told Sky Italia.

"He said: 'Moratti is very kind, I believe he was joking but it makes me happy'.

"Anyway, it wasn't a complete joke and the thing with jokes is that you never know how they are going to end."
