What next for Messi?

    What next for Messi?

    In progress, Barcelona announced on Thursday that superstar and six-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi will leave the club after 18 years.

    The Catalan side said that the financial regulations imposed by La Liga would prevent them from maintaining the highest scorer of all time, which raises the question: what will follow for Messi?

    When Messi asked to leave Barcelona in the summer of 2020, he was expected to connect with former coach Pep Guardiola in Manchester.

    However, with City seeming to have moved on, signing playmaker Jack Grillis and stating that they are linking him with Tottenham striker Harry Kane, this avenue seems closed to the Argentine.

    Controlled city owners from Abu Dhabi have deep pockets, however, and may see it as a very good opportunity to miss.


    Probably the most likely move abroad. One of the few clubs in the world to pay his salary, PSG has been linked with a move for Messi since he took over from Qatari Sports Investments in 2011.

    With compatriot Mauricio Pochettino at the helm of Ligue 1, his former teammate and close friend Neymar and electrician Kylian Mbappe as possible collaborators in the blow, Messi can prove the lost piece of the puzzle in their quest to finally win the Champions League Ε


    Some observers believe that this announcement is a major appeal of Barca’s La Liga bluff.

    It is said that the best player in the world will leave the league due to the restrictions imposed by the league, in an effort to make La Liga relax its financial fair play (FFP) rules to allow him to stay.

    If that happens, it is a bold move, with league boss Javier Tempas often criticizing the club’s financial situation and recently reiterating that they must drastically reduce their salary to keep Messi.

    Whatever the outcome, it allows them to absolve themselves of responsibility in the eyes of their fans for the whole situation.
