Lionel Messi has announced that he will join Inter Miami, which plays in the North American championship (MLS), while saying that he was not happy in Paris.
“I’ve decided I’m going to Miami, I don’t have a 100% deal done or maybe there are things left to do, but we’ve decided to continue our journey there,” he said. said the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner in an interview with Spanish newspapers Diario Sport and Mundo Deportivo.
Messi, at the same time, said he was not happy in Paris, where he played two seasons without shining in the jersey of PSG.
“It was two years where I was not happy, I did not like it. And it affected my family life, I missed a lot of my children’s life in school. In Barcelona, I went to look for them, here I did it much less, I shared fewer activities with them, ”he said, explaining that he now intended to prioritize his family life.
Messi has thus chosen the United States at the expense of a return to Barcelona or Saudi Arabia.
Barca have recently shown keen interest in the return of the Catalan club’s all-time top scorer. Laporta and coach Xavi Hernandez have notably confirmed their interest in Messi, despite the club’s finances.
Similarly, senior executives from Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal were in Paris on Sunday to try to secure a huge contract with Lionel Messi, according to a media source.
