Lionel Messi has agreed to discuss his future this Sunday in a long interview with Sexta, a Spanish television channel. MLS seems to have its preference to this day.
Lionel Messi admits it: he had a bad experience of his summer and his abortive departure from Barça. “I wanted to continue to fight for new titles and in particular the Champions League, I felt that it was the moment of change… I wanted to leave and I wanted to do it correctly, says La Pulga this Sunday in an interview granted on the Spanish television channel La Sexta. During the previous six months, I repeatedly told the president (Bartomeu, editor’s note) that I wanted to leave and that I wanted his help with that. He always said to me: “No, no, no, no”. And then he started to leak things to give me the wrong role. “
Finally, the Argentinian remained at Barça constrained and forced, sometimes mistreated by criticism. “I have heard people say that I was acting badly with a club that gave me everything, that saved my life, that did everything for me… I also gave everything for this club. And everything I received, I earned and deserved! “And the person concerned to finally evoke the thorny question of his future:” I do not know if I will leave or not … If I leave, I would like it to happen in the best way and, in this case i know i would come back someday because i want to live here at the end of my career and bring to this club all i can. Barça is much bigger than any player, including me! “
“Take advantage of an experience in the United States”
Also Lionel Messi assures him, there is no question for him to start negotiations with anyone from January 1 while his current Catalan lease expires next June. “No, I won’t decide anything right now. The important thing is to think about the team, to finish the year well and to try to win titles. I know most of the Barcelona fans want me to stay. But after all that has happened, there are a lot of aspects that come into play. I will do what is best for the club and for me. I have no doubt that I will follow what my heart and my head tell me. “
And while his interlocutor offers him tourist guides of Paris and Manchester – the two destinations that he could join if however he decides to leave the Blaugrana nest – Lionel Messi makes a confession: “I have always had the ‘want to take advantage of an experience in the United States, to discover the championship there (the MLS, note) and to live there the life that I would like. A more peaceful and anonymous life, from his point of view. “I don’t know if it will happen one day, now or later…”
As for the little sentence of Neymar which caused so much talk, the maestro has fun. “He did not say: ‘I want to play with Messi again’. He said: “I would like to play with Messi again”. We talk from time to time. The three of us with Luis, me with him, or me with Luis, every day… We maintain this relationship between us. “And admit, however, that it will be difficult for the two men to play together at Barça. “It will be difficult to bring such players here because there is no money. There are a lot of important players to recruit to be able to be competitive, but these players, you have to pay them! “
