Lionel Messi will not return to FC Barcelona. The Argentine striker has confirmed this in a joint interview with Sport y Sports world in France. Messi says “no” to the supposed team he loves and leaves for MLS to play for Inter Miami.
“I’m not going back to BarçaI will go to Inter Miami. I made the decision that I am going to Miami. I still don’t have it 100% closed, something is missing, but we decided to continue our journey there.”
Messi discards Barcelona by not trusting Joan Laporta and his constant story of the salary limit -then when he wants good Joan he activates the famous levers-.
“I heard that they had to lower wages or sell and I didn’t want to go through that,” Leo said emphatically.
He does not trust Laporta
Messi He has recognized that he does not trust him, after what happened two years ago: “The time I had to go too LaLiga I had agreed to be signed up and in the end it couldn’t be done. Well, I was afraid that the same thing would happen again and that I would also have to rush like it did, that I had to come here to Paris to stay in a hotel for a long time with my family, with my children going to school and still being at the hotel… I wanted to make my own decision and that’s why I didn’t turn around Barça. Although I would have loved it, it couldn’t.”
Messi He has admitted that his intention was to return, but he had doubts about the final outcome: “I really wanted, I was very excited to be able to return, but, on the other hand, after having experienced what I experienced and the exit I had, I did not want to return to being in the same situation again: waiting to see what was going to happen and leaving my future in someone else’s hands, so to speak”.
The Argentine does not want to be responsible for the departure of some of his best friends, and it is that Barcelona should make room in his salary margin to be able to sign up the former PSG: “I wanted to make my own decision, thinking about myself, my family Although I heard that it was said that LaLiga he had accepted everything and that everything was fine for him to return, there were still many other things that had to be given. I heard that they had to sell players or lower player salaries and the truth is that I didn’t want to go through that, or take charge of obtaining something that had to do with all that. I have already been accused of many things that were not true in my career in the Barcelona and I was already a little tired, I didn’t want to go through all that”.
Messi assures that another of the reasons why he has chosen to go to MLS is because he prefers to be calmer.to get out of the media focus that has followed him for many years: “I am in a moment where I want to get out of the focus a bit, think more about my family. I spent two years at a family level that was so bad that I did not enjoy it. I had the That month was spectacular for me for having won the World Cup, but after that it was a difficult stage for me. I want to rediscover myself with the enjoyment, with the enjoyment of my family, my children, from day to day… And for That was a bit of a decision not to give in Barcelona“, has sentenced.
