With a contract until the end of the 2020-21 season, the future of Leo Messi for the next campaign is unknown.
However, the Argentine has given clues of what may be his steps in the long term: the MLS and a return to the club as a manager or adviser.
Leo Messi spoke at length about various topics during his long-awaited interview with Jordi Évole, although one of the issues that interested him most was the future plans of the Argentinean star, winner of the Golden Ball on six occasions.
After trying to leave FC Barcelona last summer and with his contract in the final stretch, the Argentinian did not reveal whether he will remain with Barça in the long term (he will continue until the end of the year) or whether he will seek a new adventure with a team such as PSG or Manchester City.
However, the star was a little more precise about his long-term future and showed the path he would like to follow in the final stretch of his sporting career and once it comes to an end.
Firstly, the ’10’ made it clear that he would like to play in the United States, so Major League Soccer appears on Messi’s horizon. A league that has recently seen the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and already has teams behind the Argentinian player, such as Inter Miami.
For his part, Leo made no secret of the fact that, once he hangs up his boots, whether or not it is at FC Barcelona, he would love to return to the Barcelona team to carry out any task “that he can contribute to”. A phrase that leaves the door open to the possible landing of Messi in the future as a director, advisor or representative of the club that has been his life.
