It is just over half a year since Lionel Messi left PSG as a free agent. However, the best footballer in history could return to Paris this summer to attempt a unique entry into football history.
Inter Miami are slowly preparing for the new Major League Soccer season and of course, Lionel Messi is not missing from the team, with legends like Luis Suárez, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba playing alongside him.
On the night of Friday and Saturday, the Florida team was in the capital of El Salvador to take on the national team. The stadium was packed to bursting, with crowds in the stands wearing pink jerseys with the number 10 and the name “Messi” on the back.
The match ended in a 0-0 draw, but that need not worry Inter. The preparation is long. This was the first game. It’s worth noting that Lionel Messi and his team will face Al-Nassr or Al-Hilal in friendlies. The preparation will culminate in a match against Newell’s Old Boys in Argentina.
The MLS will then kick off for Miami on February 22 and the Florida team will definitely want to reach higher ranks with their new team than they did last season. The winner of eight Ballon d’Ors and not just him.
But the star Argentine has other goals than just club ones. He is also focusing on the national team, to which he still has a lot to offer. He currently has to fight with his country to qualify for the next World Cup, plus the Copa América awaits him. But that’s not all.
Lionel Messi could return to Paris in the summer
Although it’s still a short time since Lionel Messi left Paris, he could return to the French capital after a year. He won two titles with PSG. He doesn’t remember his involvement with the club in the best way and would like to create even more pleasant memories in Paris.
DSports has reported that the best footballer in history would like to take part in the Summer Olympics. Paris will be the host city. The Barcelona legend dreams of playing for Argentina alongside Ángel Di María.
After winning the World Cup with Argentina, he would like to add another precious metal to his collection. He has also taken Argentina to the Copa América title in the past. Moreover, in 2008, it was with Di Maria that he was one of his country’s driving forces for gold at the Beijing Olympics.
Both Lionel Messi and Ángel Di María are expected to be part of the Argentina Under-23 squad’s preparations ahead of the start of the Olympics. When they were youngsters in 2008, they played alongside Javier Mascherano, who is now the coach of the under-23 team, or Juan Román Riquelme.
If Messi and Di Maria had actually managed to win the Olympics in Paris, they would be the only footballers in history to have won two Olympic golds, plus a World Cup.
