Inter Milan reportedly plan to use Cristiano Ronaldo's impact at Juventus as a blueprint for a possible swoop for Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi.

Inter Milan are reportedly looking to use Cristiano Ronaldo's impact at Juventus as a blueprint for a potential swoop for Barcelona talisman Lionel Messi.

Since arriving in Turin following a stellar career with Real Madrid, Ronaldo has continued his prolific goalscoring form with 65 strikes in 89 matches across all competitions for the Old Lady.

Messi's future at Camp Nou has been called into question this season, and the six-time Ballon d'Or winner is yet to pen fresh terms with the Catalan giants, with his current deal expiring next summer.

According to Gazetta dello Sport, Inter are weighing up the pros and cons of bringing the 33-year-old to Serie A, and the club's owners are studying Ronaldo's influence at Juve as they eye a swoop for Messi.

Barca president Josep Maria Bartomeu is confident that Messi will end his playing days at Camp Nou, but following La Blaugrana's failure to retain the La Liga title, speculation over the Argentine's future continues to grow.

Messi enjoyed another terrific season in the Spanish top flight and chalked up 25 goals and 22 assists for Barca during the 2019-20 campaign.
