La Pulga will have to make a big decision as his contract with the Parisien club expires at the end of June.

Messi signed a two-year contract with PSG in August 2021, following his emotional exit from Barcelona for financial reasons. The 35-year-old has formed a celebrity front line in France’s capital, alongside general talents Neymar and Kylian Mbappe. Although, it could all come to an end when the season ends.

The following are the results of a search for a suitable replacement for the aforementioned ad hoc task. According to reports at the time, he was considering a contract extension with PSG. Though, according to L’Equipe, he is now leaning towards leaving. Here are the possible clubs that he could join:

Manchester City

Messi wasn’t just linked to PSG in the summer of 2021. As of Pep Guardiola’s employment at Manchester City and the wealth of the organization, they were also considered as a potential location.

Messi, who excelled while playing for Barcelona under Guardiola’s leadership, has received plenty of praise from the manager.

No matter how good Messi is, signing a player who will soon turn 36 would go against City’s transfer market strategy. There have been no talks between Messi and Guardiola, but this might be their final opportunity to strike a deal.

FC Barcelona

Lionel Messi was very clear when he said he didn’t want to leave Barcelona in August 2021. “We were convinced we were continuing here, at home,” he said as he unsuccessfully tried not to cry. “I did all that I could stay because I wanted to stay.”

Messi calls Barcelona his home, and despite the Catalan giants’ current financial woes, there will always be a desire to bring the Argentine star back. Messi’s return would likely require the team to make other concessions. Though it’s possible that he would be willing to accept a significant pay cut to end his career with them. He amassed 672 goals in 778 games and won 35 trophies.

AC Milan

The possibility of Lionel Messi joining AC Milan has generated a lot of excitement among football fans worldwide. Messi, who is among the all-time greats in football, would undoubtedly improve Milan’s already-impressive squad.

Messi’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of the current season, which opens the possibility of him becoming a free agent. This is the source of the rumours that he will join the Italian team. Messi has played his entire career for Barcelona, but the idea of him moving to Milan seems plausible given the club’s recent resurgence in form and potential for winning titles. It would undoubtedly be one of the biggest transfers in football history and could possibly restore AC Milan’s position as a dominant force in Europe.


Regarding Lionel Messi joining Chelsea, there are rumours. Messi’s potential inclusion in the Chelsea squad, as one of the greatest players of all time, would significantly improve an already struggling team. It has been suggested that Messi may be considering playing in the English Premier League, something he has never done. As a result of reports that he is leaving Paris Saint-Germain. Chelsea might require a player like Messi given their poor performance in the league and the Champions League. Messi and Chelsea have not yet spoken, despite the fact that Chelsea has already spent more than $500 million during both of this season’s transfer windows.


The lavish transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to Al-Nassr demonstrated Saudi Arabia’s willingness to spend a fortune on luring star players to its league. There have been rumours that Messi might relocate to Riyadh ever since Ronaldo did.

Saudi Arabia is vying to host the 2030 World Cup, and the nation would love to have Messi join as an ambassador. According to a recent report in Mundo Deportivo, Al-Hillal, a rival of Al-Nassr, would be willing to pay Messi an astounding £245 million per year. This would be significantly more than Ronaldo’s £177 million salary. What an alluring offer.

Inter Miami

The MLS team, which is coached by Phil Neville and partially owned by David Beckham, has been open about its interest in signing Messi.

According to The Times, they are “confident” in getting Lionel Messi and plan to offer him a contract that will make him the highest-paid player in MLS history. Messi is well known for enjoying Miami as a city. He has taken several family vacations there, and it is obvious that the way of life is appealing. He might consider this to be his favourite spot to unwind with his family and hang up his boots.

Newell’s Old Boys

“The desire is always playing for Newell’s – it is what I dreamed of as a kid,” Messi told TyC Sports five years ago. A team with a long history in Argentine football, Newell’s Old Boys would undoubtedly gain more recognition both domestically and abroad if Messi joined their ranks. The club recently hired Gabriel Heinze as its manager and has publicly expressed his desire for Messi to return to Newell’s Old Boys. But it’s still unclear at this point whether Messi would be enthusiastic about doing so.

The idea of going back to his childhood home before he moved to Barcelona is romantic. While Messi might find it appealing at this time. Messi could uproot and head back to Argentina for one final series before retiring.
