A failure in the Champions League will see Barcelona end the season without a trophy, adding fuel to Messi's Inter Milan rumours

Inter Milan legend Walter Zenga refused to be drawn into speculations over Lionel Messi's next move in his career. Barcelona superstar Messi has been heavily linked with a move to Inter following his issues with the board at the Catalan club.

While Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu maintains that the 33-year-old striker will remain at Barcelona, the Italian media hasn't stopped speculating about the next move of the Argentina captain.

Messi's contract with Barcelona expires at the end of the next season.

With the ageing Barca team struggling to produce their top form in recent months, the six-time Ballon d'Or winner has cut a frustrating figure as bitter rivals Real Madrid clinched the La Liga title.

The Champions League round of 16 win over Napoli may have papered over the cracks, but Barcelona are unlikely to have an easy time in the quarterfinals of Europe's premier club competition against Bayern Munich.

A failure in the Champions League will see Barcelona end the season without a trophy, adding fuel to Messi's Inter Milan rumours.

But Zenga, who spent 16 years at Inter during his glittering career, refuses to believe what the Italian media is writing on Messi's possible move to Italy.

"Oh, I don't know. Listen sometimes, something that they write (in the newspapers) is just to make some rumours. I don't believe them. The only truth is that I know nothing," Zenga told Khaleej Times in Dubai on Monday.

The speculations over Messi's future  grew stronger after the Italian media reported that the Barcelona talisman had bought a property in Milan. 

But Zenga was in no mood to discuss whether the iconic number 10 would leave Camp Nou for San Siro.
