Lionel Messi has opened up on why he decided to snub his former club, Barcelona to seal a deal with David Beckham’s Inter Miami.
The all-time Ballon D’or holder, Lionel Messi emphasized that there are a lot of people around the world that doesn’t really want him to come to Barcelona.
He further stated that he is aware of the conversation he had with Barcelona’s manager, Xavi. Messi shared these during an interview with Mundo Deportivo on Wednesday.
Having reached the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain on June 30, the French Ligue 1 champions confirmed last weekend that the 35-year-old forward would be leaving the team. Messi played his final match for PSG against Clermont Foot on Sunday.
While there were speculations about a potential return to Barcelona or a move to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal, Messi has now made the decision to join Inter Miami.
