What happened to Lionel Messi?

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner spent two years in France after breaking ties with La Liga outfit Barcelona in the summer of 2021.

Lionel Messi’s footballing career in Europe came to an unnoticeable end following the expiration of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain’s management and was left with little choice but to depart the French club.

Messi sought to leave the team after two unsuccessful seasons playing alongside Neymar Jr. and Kylian Mbappe. As a result, his spectacular deal with Inter Miami in the MLS went through.

Messi decided to pursue a different challenge after his lucrative contract at Parc des Princes expired because he struggled to win over a finicky fan base while competing for PSG, where he won two Ligue 1 titles.

His five goals in Inter Miami’s first three games have helped the renowned footballer renew his passion as he pursues the American dream.

Lionel Messi agreed to a two-and-a-half-year contract in Florida after being brought to the country by Manchester United and England legend David Beckham.

According to Jordi Alba, the 2022 World Cup winner’s intention to achieve is as strong as ever.

The Spanish International player admits that Messi didn’t have a promising time in Paris, but the former Barcelona captain has since recovered from the grin he lost at Inter Miami.

Jordi Alba said; “He feels supported, loved and that’s the most important thing. At PSG he didn’t have a good time, but he recovered his joy. I repeat, it’s a challenge that personally excites him a lot and I see him very happy”.

Messi has scored in three consecutive League Cup victories, raising the profile of Major League Soccer and bringing A-listers to DRV PNK Stadium. Before Messi’s arrival, Inter Miami had been in poor form. Messi probably anticipates taking home a title soon after landing in America.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner has since had a very good start to life in America.

Reunited with old colleagues Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba as well as a former coach and fellow countryman Tata Martino, Messi exploded to 5 goals and 2 assists in his first 3 games.

In Miami, his impact was seen right away as a club that had lost their previous ten games went on to win their first three games with Messi in the lineup.

Alba believes that Messi’s altered mentality and rediscovered quality reflect a favorable mental transformation, even though the league’s caliber is undoubtedly inferior to that of Europe.

The left-back and Messi got along well while they were both playing for Barcelona and on Wednesday, 2nd of August, Alba made his Miami debut off the bench when Miami defeated Orlando City 3-1 in a Leagues Cup semifinal.

Messi is still one of the best players in the world, and even though his performances for a PSG side that lacked togetherness didn’t reflect that, his talent was still evident when he won the Golden Ball at the World Cup in Qatar.

Fans could see that Messi still had magic in his boots during the 2022 winter tournament as he led Argentina with unforgettable performances and crucial goal contributions throughout a historic tournament.

Alongside the advancing Messi, Busquets had a fantastic start to his Miami career, and Alba will want to have a similar outcome whenever he gets a slot in the starting lineup.

What’s next for Lionel Messi?

Miami’s attack is in good shape with 9 goals in 3 games since Messi’s arrival, and they will seek to compete for trophies when they play FC Dallas in the Leagues Cup quarterfinal on Sunday, 6th of August.
