Inter Miami does not hide

Entering the home stretch of his commitment to Paris Saint-Germain, will Lionel Messi agree to return for an additional year in the French capital? For the time being, the 35-year-old Argentine striker has given no indication of his intentions in the coming months. In public, the native of Rosario has so far never spoken about his future with the leader of Ligue 1.

The vagueness surrounding the future of the former FC Barcelona player, recruited free during the summer of 2021, does not leave a Major League Soccer club indifferent. Through the voice of its coach Phil Neville, Inter Miami has not hidden its interest in the 2022 world champion. In addition to the Florida franchise, FC Barcelona dreams of a return of the “Pulga”, a position confirmed by Blaugrana coach Xavi.

16 goals this season

What then of the final decision of the Parisian number 30? According to information given by the newspaper The Parisian, an ultimatum was set. Lionel Messi’s future won’t be decided until the Champions League round of 16 second leg against Germany’s Bayern Munich, scheduled for Wednesday March 8 at the Allianz Arena. There is no doubt that the European fate of Paris Saint-Germain, beaten in the first leg at the Parc des Princes (0-1), will undoubtedly tip the scales.

Author of 27 goals in 61 matches in all competitions with the Ile-de-France jersey, the six-time Ballon d’Or winner has scored 16 goals and delivered 14 assists in 27 matches since the start of the 2022-2023 season, including 11 goals and 10 assists in 19 Ligue 1 games. On Sunday, Lionel Messi will be eagerly awaited for the Clasico against Olympique de Marseille at the Orange Vélodrome, at the end of the 25th day.
