The Lionel Messi sweepstakes appear to be over. The most coveted free agent in soccer history is set to sign with Major League Soccer’s Inter Miami, according to a report from Guillem Balague.


Now, according to Spanish journalist Sebastián Quadrelli, Messi may be about to spurn the advances of his former employers. He took to Twitter to say: “Leo is far from Barcelona. There are no guarantees. They do not want to go through the same thing as when they left. What Jorge Messi declared when leaving Laporta’s house was misinterpreted. Leo’s times are not those of Barça.”


LaLiga has validated Barcelona’s viability plan for the next two seasons, as confirmed by the EFE News agency, sources from the Barça entity, which makes it possible for the club to continue working on the return of Leo Messi.

The OK of LaLiga will allow Barça to register the contracts of Pablo Páez Gavira ‘Gavi’, Ronald Araujo, Sergi Roberto and Iñaki Peña, recently renewed, the future renewal of Alejandro Balde or the signing of Íñigo Martínez, who will arrive with the letter of freedom .

Barcelona, therefore, returns to operate in the market with the 1/1 rule, which means that it will be able to sign as long as it manages to release, with the transfer of players, the same salary mass that it needs to deal with new hires.

And it is that, as his economic vice president, Eduard Romeu, has already sent, Messi’s return involves, among other things, selling assets from the squad and thus being able to comply with the ‘financial fair play’: “If there are tickets, there will have to be exits”, sentence.

At the moment, Jorge Messi, father and representative of the player, granted this Monday, after a meeting with the president of Barcelona, Joan Laporta, that the Argentine star wants to wear Barça again this summer.

Barça has a plan that LaLiga has not opposed, so the desire of the club and player seems a little closer to being fulfilled.

Xavi has been asked about Lionel Messi’s future once again after seeing his Barcelona team beat Vissel Kobe in a friendly in Japan on Tuesday.

“The situation is in the hands of the president and Leo’s father, therefore, we’ll see, we’ll see how it ends, but in the end Leo has the upper hand,” he told reporters in Japan.

“We are happy, for the moment we have the OK to the feasibility plan of La Liga and now, to get going, get down to work and strengthen ourselves, which we need.”
