Lionel Messi reveals Inter Miami will be his last club as he contemplates retirement

Inter Miami and Argentina forward Lionel Messi has opened up on his plans for the final stage of his career ahead of the 2024 Copa America

The 36-year-old says he will not sign for another club but emphasised that he is still passionate about the game and won’t retire now.

Messi admitted (via ESPN), “Inter Miami will be my final club. However, I’m not prepared to leave football just yet.”  

He acknowledged the influence of Argentina’s World Cup victory in Qatar on his decision to move to Major League Soccer.

“Winning the World Cup was a dream come true and it allowed me to make a change with a bit more peace of mind,” he added.

Messi was linked with a return to Barcelona after leaving Paris Saint-Germain. He also had a mega offer from the Saudi Pro League to renew his rivalry with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner rejected those opportunities, choosing to move to the United States in the twilight of his career.

Messi’s love for the game remains strong despite the move to a less competitive league. “This is what I’ve done all my life,” he confessed.


“The training sessions, the games – I enjoy them all. The fear that it’s all over is always there, but I’m not ready for that just yet.”

Messi’s comments will undoubtedly fuel excitement among MLS fans eager to see him continue his magic on American soil. Miami may be his final stop, but Messi still has plenty to offer the beautiful game.

The 2024 Copa America is a chance for Messi and Argentina to continue their remarkable run. They won the last edition and then claimed the 2022 World Cup.
