Leo Messi Full Interview
Leo Messi: “I am going to Inter Miami. I wanted to return to Barca but didn’t want to leave my future hanging in the hands of other people. After winning the World Cup and not being able to go to Barca, I had to go to the American League to experience football differently and enjoy the day-to-day.”
“I wanted to make my own decision, thinking about myself, about my family. Although I heard that it was said that LaLiga had accepted everything and that everything was fine for me to return, there were still many other things that had to be done. I heard that they had to sell players or lower the salary of players and the truth is that I didn’t want to go through that.”
“I had other offers from Europe, but I didn’t evaluate them because of Barcelona. Hopefully, I don’t know when or what or when but hopefully one day I can still contribute something at Barcelona and help because it’s a club that I love as I always said. I appreciate the affection I had from people during my career and I would like to be here again, yes.”
“I spoke very little with Laporta, once or twice at most. I do have a lot of communication with Xavi since he arrived at the club much more, and very often. We talked about the possibility of me returning. We were very excited because when something came out we talked if he really wanted me to come back, if it was good for the team and him, and we kept in communication.”
“So many things have been said, so many lies were told but I can’t go out to deny everything that is said but I see that there are many journalists who tell many lies. Many things bothered me, for example, when they talk a lot about my family, who said that my son had a hard time in Paris when it is the opposite. My children don’t want to leave because of how well they are.”
“Yes obviously yes. I followed Xavi all year and I wanted Barca to win trophies, like all Barcelona fans. And even the first year too, I talked a lot with Xavi after a few games and followed him closely. I was dreaming of Barca return but I was never sure about that happening because I remember very well the story of August 2021, two years ago.I didn’t want to tell my kids: we go back to Barcelona! And then, nothing. I was quiet.”
“I would’ve liked to leave Barcelona as Xavi, Busquets, Alba & Iniesta did. This is why I was very happy to hear the chants with my name by Barca fans at Camp Nou. It was a strange feeling to hear Barça fans calling my name but then. I wasn’t there. I obviously missed Barcelona in these last 2 years. I would like to have a real farewell at some point with the people we lived and enjoyed and suffered so much. They were many years together, and I would like to say goodbye.”
“Yes, obviously I would like to be close to the club. Furthermore, I am going to live in Barcelona. It is one of the things that we are very clear about with my wife and my children. I don’t know at what moment, or what, or when, but hopefully one day I can contribute something to the club and help because it is a club that I love as I always said. I appreciate the love I had from people during my career and I would like to be here again.”
“I’ve come to a point in life where I want to step out of the spotlight.”“If it had been a matter of money, I’d have gone to Arabia or elsewhere. It seemed like a lot of money to me. The truth is that my final decision goes elsewhere and not because of money. Money has never been an issue with me. We didn’t even discuss the contract with Barcelona! They sent me a proposal but was never an official, written and signed proposal.”
“We never negotiated my salary. It wasn’t about money otherwise I was going to join Saudi. I’m not sure if Barça did everything possible to make it happen, honestly, I just know what Xavi told me. I’m sure that there are people in the club that do NOT want me to return to Barca.”
“Busquets to Inter Miami? This was a lie, saying I was going to the same club as Jordi Alba and Busi. No, we never agreed to join the same club.”“I made my decision to join Miami and I don’t know what they are gonna do.”
