The forward has revealed his next move after leaving PSG
Lionel Messi is off to Inter Miami, as he exclusively revealed to SPORT and Mundo Deportivo.
The key question, if not Barcelona, where next? Saudi Arabia? Miami?
I have taken the decision to go to [Inter] Miami. It's still not closed 100%, there are a few final details left, but that's the decision we have made.
With Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba?
That's another thing (the media) have said, that I was going with Busi and Alba to Saudi Arabia, that we had it all sorted. Everyone looks out for their own future. I was obviously pending (their decision), what they would do, but never in any moment did we agree to go one place or another. I made my decision and I don't know what they are going to do. Mine was based on what we have spoken about throughout the interview. And no, I don't have anything set up with anyone.
Is this leaving the spotlight, as you say?
Yes, leaving Europe. The truth is that I had offers from another European team, but I didn't even evaluate it because in Europe my idea was only to go to Barcelona. After winning the World Cup and not being able to go to Barça, it was time to go to the American league to experience football in a different way and enjoy the day-to-day. Obviously with the same responsibility and the same desire to want to win and to always do things well. But with more peace of mind.
