Messi gave a strong hint that he wants to end his career in the MLS

People in Spain and worldwide are waiting for an interview with Barcelona star Lionel Messi with Jordi Evole. Still, the journalist himself admitted that he was surprised that the Argentine told him about his plans. Leo Messi is free to discuss with new clubs from January 1 as his contract at Barcelona comes to an end on June 30, but with long term thinking, Evole gave a strong hint that the 33-year-old might end up playing in the MLS in the future. “Put it on TV on Sunday: you aim very well…” Evole told reporters when asked if Messi could be in the MLS with Inter Miami. Getting an interview with Messi is understandably tricky. The famed journalist revealed how the Barcelona superstar initially turned down an interview before agreeing to sit down after the club’s losses with Cadiz and Juventus.

“In the middle of the lockdown situation, we asked him for an interview,” Evole revealed. “With prudence and humility, he told us that he was nobody to talk about what was happening, but we agreed to talk later. His agent called me after the defeats from Cadiz and Juve, and that’s when I went. He told me about his plans for the future. Messi told me how he wants to end his career, and it surprised me.” Evole came into the interview without having spoken much with Messi in the past, but he noted how they ended up doing a chat rather than a formal interview. “I went without an instruction manual, “he said. “We know Messi very little, and I intended to meet with him. I needed to know what is behind the superstar. In the end, we had a conversation, not an interview.”
