Lionel Messi's getting closer to playing in MLSStill not renewed contract with Barcelona and the rumors of "sports move" are getting louder
If there's a contract renewal in the world of football that keeps all lovers of this sport in suspense, it's, without a doubt, that of Lionel Messi with Barcelona. It's that no person imagines the Argentine player wearing a shirt other than that of the Catalans since he represented them from the formative categories and became a true legend, not only of the club, but also of the sport. But the possibility of La Pulga leaving the Spanish entity's a very strong reality.
In recent days, David Beckham, Inter Miami's largest shareholder, made public his desire to be able to sign Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in the short term, not only to reinforce his team with two mega cracks, but also to enhance the image of the MLS. And the desire of the Spice Boy could be half fulfilled since Messi's about to play in that league.
Guillem Balagué, Messi's personal biographer and journalist, revealed an intimate detail that brings the Argentine player closer to US soil. He did it in the transmission of the match between Barcelona and PSG, for the UEFA Champions League, on the CBS Sports network, where he announced that he would land in the United States from June 2022, and that he would not do it alone, as he would be accompanied by a former teammate in the Catalan box, Cesc Fabregas, who's a close friend of his.
The information adds that the current French Monaco player, and that he has a contract until the end of the 2021-22 season, has convinced Messi to play together in MLS, but that is not all, because their respective wives, Daniella Semaan and Antonela Roccuzzo, would also be involved.

"The wives have convinced Cesc and Messi to go to America together, so when that will happen, we don't know yet because Cesc, of course, is still in Monaco. But it's something that is in the back of both players' minds", Balagué assured.

It should be noted that both Messi and Fabregas trained in football at La Masía, and finally played together for Barcelona between 2011 and 2014, where they won the 2012 Club World Cup, a European Super Cup, a championship in LaLiga, two Super Cups of Spain and a Copa del Rey.
