“Whatever happens, in two years Messi will join Inter Miami CF”
According to journalist José Antonio Ponseti from ‘Carrusel Deportivo,’ Messi’s dad held a meeting in Paris regarding the future of his son.
Lionel Messi’s contract with FC Barcelona expires this summer and no one knows if he is going to extend his time with the LaLiga side or continue his career elsewhere. With the election of Joan Laporta as the new president of Barça, it is expected that the Argentine superstar will renew his contract and stay his time at the Camp Nou.
MLS his next destination?
There has been many speculations about Lionel Messi finishing his career in Major League Soccer, specially after he revealed that he would like to live in the United States in the near future. Several reports in the UK claim that Manchester City will offer Messi a five-year-deal with the first two in the Premier League (with an option to a third) and the next two with their MLS franchise New York City FC.
The five-year-deal is supposed to be worth almost 500 million euros and Messi could become a global ambassador for the City group after he retires. After FC Barcelona’s elimination against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday, there is new information regarding this future.
According to journalist José Antonio Ponseti from La SER in Spain, no matter what happens, Messi will join Inter Miami CF in two years. With Laporta winning the presidential elections the Argentine might renew his contract at the Camp Nou, but only for two more seasons, because after that he will join Inter Miami.
“Whatever happens, in two years Lionel Messi will join Inter Miami CF. He might renew his contract with Barça, but I can assure as of now, that Messi has a 50/50 chance of joining the MLS franchise in 2023,” said Ponseti.
