2023 was an atypical year for Lionel Messi. His contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired on June 30 and he became a free agent, something that had only happened once before in his professional career, in 2021, when he left Barcelona for France. This time he also decided to change country and chose the United States as his new destination to join Inter Miami.

 

This transfer shocked the world, as no one expected the best player in the world to agree to play in Major League Soccer. Instantly, millions of fans from all continents began to pay attention to the U.S. league, something that had never happened before. And Leo did not disappoint them, as just a month later he led The Herons to their first-ever Leagues Cup title.

In 2024, the Argentine forward will try to be even more successful with his club. And he will have great news: he will be reunited with one of his best friends, Luis Suarez, with whom he played between 2014 and 2020 in Barcelona. After a demanding preseason, in which they will play friendly matches in four different countries, Inter Miami will start the MLS season on February 21 against Real Salt Lake at DRV PNK Stadium.

And a few weeks later they will make their debut in the round of 16 of the CONCACAF Champions League, facing the winner of the match between Nashville SC and Moca. This tournament will probably be the main objective for Gerardo Martino's team, since if they win the title they will secure their place in the Club World Cup 2025. In addition, they will try to repeat their success in the Leagues Cup.

 

With Argentina he also wants to be champion

In June Lionel Messi will play a major tournament with the Argentina National Team: the Copa America in the United States. This could be Leo's farewell to La Albiceleste, as he has not yet made sure if he will continue in 2025. That is why he will do his best to win the title, something he already achieved in 2021.
