Messi Expected to Resist Inter Miami and Stay in Europe Until At Least 2024

Leonel Messi is expected to resist Inter Miami and stay in Europe until at least 2024. Reportedly, Leonel Messi was close to joining Inter Miami. The current deal of Messi with Paris Saint – Germain will run until the end of the season and there is a possibility of an extension to stay on. Options will only be considered by Messi in January as his focus is on helping Argentina to progress in the world cup. 

At least until 2024, Leonel Messi is expected to stay in European football, despite being close to agreeing a deal to join MLS club Inter Miami next year reportedly. 

It was told to sky sports news that Messi is not close to a new agreement with any club. This includes his current team Paris Saint – Germain who is wanting to keep him beyond his current deal which expires in 2023. 

However, the first option of Messi is remaining at PSG and the French club are understood to approach him to enter negotiations over an extension. 

Since Messi is concentrating on the World Cup with Argentina, no future options will be considered by him formally until January. He can also talk to the other top clubs outside France after January. 

It is believed by the thirty-five year old that he is still left with more years at the European level, having settled and impressed further at PSG in his second season. 

No secret of his desire of bringing Messi back to the Nou Camp has been made by the Barcelona chief Joan Laporta. Starting earlier this month, if they can afford Messi, he said : “Leo knows that Barcelona is always his home.” 

In the future, the MLS is an interesting option for Messi because he has already spoken openly about his want of playing there in the past. However, it was told to Sky Sports news that this is unlikely to be a destination for him until at least 2024 or most probably 2025. 

And, his MLS destination is by no means assured to be the Inter Miami of David Beckham either at this stage, despite reports that they are confident to land the Argentina star and close to agree a deal.

MESSI : ANOTHER WORLD CUP STARTS FOR ARGENTINA

Some faith was restored by Messi in Argentina’s bid for what will be his last world cup on Saturday when he scored in a 2-0 win over Mexico in their second group C game that followed the shock defeat to Saudi Arabia. 

This goal was the eighth goal of Messi at a World Cup and it took him level with the legendary Diego Maradona and put him just two shy of the record of World Cup goal scorer Gabriel Batistuta of Argentina. 

Messi said that the arrival of Argentina at the World Cup was signalled by the win and he insisted that now, the only way is forward. 

Messi said, “Another World Cup starts for Argentina.”

“I tell people the same thing, that they continue to believe. Today we did what we had to do.”

“We had no other choice. We had to win so that we depended only on ourselves.”

“The first half we didn’t play as we should and in the second, when we calmed down, we started to play the ball better and after the goal we went back to being what we are.”

Messi is hoping to secure the passage of Argentina to the knockout stages when they will play against Poland in their final World Cup Group C match on Wednesday.
