According to reports, Inter Miami will not lend out Lionel Messi, the team’s captain, following the conclusion of the Major League Soccer season.
The attacker, who is 36 years old, has been mentioned in connection with the Saudi Pro League as well as a potential return to FC Barcelona.
According to a claim by the Spanish writer Guillem Balague, the international celebrity will not be travelling anyplace other than on vacation.
“Messi will have around one month holiday, like other footballers,” Balague was quoted as saying by the BBC. “So forget any move to Saudi or similar.”
The possibility of Inter Miami making the playoffs is no longer a possibility. On October 21, they will play their last game, which is against Charlotte.
Since joining Miami, Messi has played in five Major League Soccer regular-season matches (three of which he started), with one goal and two assists. Messi has contributed to 11 goals and eight assists for the club’s offence in 13 appearances across all competitions.
