What will Lionel Messi do after June 2023? He can extend the adventure at PSG, return to FC Barcelona or discover MLS and sign at Inter Miami. A very real possibility for the sporting director of the franchise, who is full of praise for the Argentinian.
The 2022-2023 season appears to be decisive in the end of Lionel Messi’s career. First of all, the Argentinian will try to conquer the World Cup in Qatar, undoubtedly his last personal opportunity to finally get his hands on this trophy which escapes him, the only one. Then he will try to help PSG win their first Champions League. Finally, his club career could evolve significantly in the coming months. La Pulga is coming to the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain next June, and he is spoiled for choice. He can continue the adventure in Paris, by activating the one-year option made available to him by Nasser Al-Khelaifi last year. But, he can also look elsewhere and offer himself a last contract before turning the page, the sevenfold Ballon d’Or still being 35 years old.
In Miami, we welcome Messi with open arms
The two possibilities open to him, other than an extension with the French champions, are a return to FC Barcelona, the club where he spent most of his career and which he left in tears, or he can discover the United States and Major League Soccer, where so many great players quietly come to end their careers. Rumors strongly point to an interest from Inter Miami in Lionel Messi. David Beckham’s franchise welcomed Gonzalo Higuain recently and dreams of one of the sport’s biggest stars. For franchise athletic director Chris Henderson, that sweet dream may come true in the near future. In any case, he wishes it with all his heart.

” I know Lionel Messi could come! It’s great to be connected with incredible players and our club with. I don’t want to comment on someone outside of our roster speculation and rumours, but he’s one of the greatest players to ever play the sport. Messi in any team in the world will change that team. I don’t want to speculate and talk about him in our squad, but he changes every league and every team he plays for “said the leader of Inter Miami on Sky Sports England. Inter Miami are more than optimistic about signing Lionel Messi this summer, and last week The Athletic even claimed that discussions had already started between the officials of the MLS club and the entourage of Leo Messi in order to know more about the intentions of the latter at the end of the season.

However, all of that can quickly change and the next few months will be key in measuring the Argentine’s motivation in European football. The success or otherwise of his sporting goals will be of paramount importance in his future in a club at PSG or elsewhere. A few days ago, Guillem Balague, Spanish journalist and biographer of Lionel Messi, had let him know that the latter felt really good in Paris and that it could well be that the number 30 finally extends his contract with the club of the capital city. Enough to make the Barcelona sports press cry, who dream more than anything that Leo Messi will tear up the offer extended by Qatar and return for one last dance at Barça. A sweet dream that Nasser Al-Khelaifi does not share.
