January 25 News L’Equipe today talked about the topic of Messi’s contract renewal.
It stated that Messi’s future includes other options, MLS Miami International hopes to sign players, Antonella also opens up this option, and playing in the United States is not unattractive in Messi’s eyes, but this is not Messi now
In addition, there is another key reason related to it: Messi has not publicly expressed his views on this matter (Messi wants to announce that he will continue to play for Argentina).
Messi plans to continue playing for Argentina until at least the 2024 Copa America.
In private, Messi also said that so far, the option of participating in the 2026 World Cup is not ruled out, even if the idea is still far away in Messi’s view.
For many reasons, Messi’s priority now is to stay in a competitive environment. He hopes to continue to catch up with Ronaldo’s Champions League scoring record (Messi 129 goals, Ronaldo 141 goals).
Although there have been rumors that the Middle East clubs are chasing Messi with high salaries, there is no official offer yet.
