Lionel Messi is soon to define his future. The Argentine idol advice that he won’t start the negotiations to leave FC Barcelona on January, date in which he could do such a thing, and that he will wait until the end of the season to decide. The options of him moving are very clear, as that was what he tried to do during the past transfer window.
Messi is 33 years old already and thinks that at Barça there are not many options for him to shine at the end of his career. Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain appear as the best options for him at Europe, but there are also some others at the MLS, where he will be very well-received.
The attacker himself talked about the MLS and said that it will be a pleasure for him to have that experience before retirement. City Group is thinking on an offer for him to play a couple of years at Manchester City and then to move to New York City FC, the MLS franchise of the Group.
But another interested agent for Messi moving to the MLS is David Beckham. The president of Inter Miami has a good relationship with him and wants him as the franchise player of his team. Actually, Gonzalo Higuaín is the best paid player of the league with a salary of $8.8 million and the one of Messi could even quadruple that number.
