The fans of the Catalan club were looking forward to the meeting between Messi and the new coach Ronald Koeman on Thursday in order to put an end to the state of suspense, but what leaked from the meeting increased the suspicion and uncertainty.
According to Spanish press reports, Messi assured Coman that he currently sees himself outside Barcelona more than continuing with the team, which prompted international newspapers to compete to speculate on the possible destination of the Argentine star in the event of his departure from Barcelona.
According to these reports, Messi’s future will not diverge in the event of his departure from Barcelona from 3 possible destinations:
Messi is considered an old dream to run the Inter club, and according to Italian newspapers, the Chinese management of the Italian club is preparing to take advantage of the current situation in order to achieve this dream.
Reports indicated that Inter is ready to offer 260 million euros to sign the Argentine star, and is seeking to exploit the Catalan club’s desire to sign Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez in order to include him in the deal.
And in recent days, press reports spoke of Messi’s father’s willingness to transfer his residency to Milan after buying a villa there, and newspapers considered this step a prelude to Messi’s departure to Italy.

2- Manchester City
Messi will be in front of the opportunity to work again with coach Pep Guardiola, who lived with him the brightest of his times in Barcelona, and the English press reports that the English club management is waiting for the green light from Barcelona to make a tempting offer to sign Messi as part of its plan to achieve the Champions League title for the first time in the history of the club .
The presence of striker Sergio Aguero will be another attraction for Lionel Messi, given the players’ strong friendship.
3- Paris Saint-Germain
There have been reports of the Parisian club’s management communicating with the player’s surroundings to inquire about his future, and Saint-Germain will use the opportunity to reach the Champions League final in order to convince the Argentine star of the club’s project.
In the event that the deal succeeds, Messi, along with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, will form a terrifying attack trio that will not stand up to any defense, but this dream may face economic and sports restrictions.
Messi will not have other options due to the lack of teams capable of providing his annual salary, while moving outside the major European leagues is an unlikely option currently for the Argentine star’s desire and ability to win several major tournaments.
The coming days will be decisive in determining Messi’s future, and new coach Ronald Koeman is forced to close this file before leading the team’s first training session at the end of this month.
