NEW DELHI: Argentine star striker Lionel Messi’s contract with Barcelona Football Club (Barcelona FC) has ended. One of the greatest footballers of all time, Messi is free to join any club at this time. Messi’s contract with Barcelona expires on June 30.
In such a situation, the question arises whether Messi will move to any other club? Last year, Messi expressed his desire to leave the Barcelona club. However, later Messi remained with Barcelona. According to media reports, Messi’s deal with Barcelona was worth 55.55 million euros, or $ 673 million.
Messi was with Barcelona since 2004. If Messi leaves Barcelona, clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) or Manchester City could pick him up. Paris Saint-Germain Club can afford the huge expenses of a big player like Messi. Last year there was speculation about Messi joining PSG as well. One of La Liga’s finest clubs, Barcelona later convinced Messi and kept him with them. However, this is a golden opportunity for PSG to rope in Messi, who is currently out of contract.

Manchester City can also include the huge amount that Manchester City can spend on Lionel Messi. The owner of the Manchester City club has shown tireless ambition in the pursuit of his glory, but so far he has failed to win the Champions League. Manchester City were very close to having Messi on their side last year. In such a situation, this year also he will try his best to bring this star player to his club. inter Milan

The last time Messi made up his mind to leave Barcelona, Inter Milan, one of Italy’s biggest clubs, was in touch with him. Former Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti even claimed that there was contact between Messi and the club. However, Messi had decided to stay with Barcelona. If Barcelona fails to persuade Messi this year, Inter Milan will leave no stone unturned to rope in the star footballer.
