Lionel Messi’s father and agent, Jorge, has revealed that his son has not yet decided his next club.
Recall that Messi will leave PSG when his deal runs out in 2023 and head to Miami to sign for David Beckham’s MLS club, while also acquiring a 35 per cent stake in the franchise.
However, according to French publication Le Parisien, via TMZ Sports, Jorge has now branded talk of his son agreeing to join Inter Miami’ completely false’.
Jorge is quoted as saying: “Leo has not yet decided on his future. And if Leo Messi has crossed paths with David Beckham in the last few hours, it is only as part of PSG’s stay in Doha where the former English midfielder plays a role as an ambassador for the next World Cup in Qatar.”
Messi joined PSG on a two-year deal from Barcelona last summer.
The Argentine captain has scored 11 goals in 33 outings for PSG this season.
Style of play
A versatile forward, Messi often plays as a classic number 10.
Due to his short stature, Messi has a lower centre of gravity than taller players, which gives him greater agility, allowing him to change direction more quickly and evade opposing tackles this has led the Spanish media to dub him La Pulga Atómica (“The Atomic Flea”).
Despite being physically unimposing, he possesses significant upper-body strength, which, combined with his low centre of gravity and resulting balance, aids him in withstanding physical challenges from opponents; he has consequently been noted for his lack of diving in a sport rife with playacting.
His short, strong legs allow him to excel in short bursts of acceleration while his quick feet enable him to retain control of the ball when dribbling at speed. His former Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola once stated, “Messi is the only player that runs faster with the ball than he does without it.
Although he has improved his ability with his weaker foot since his mid-20s, Messi is predominantly a left-footed player; with the outside of his left foot, he usually begins dribbling runs, while he uses the inside of his foot to finish and provide passes and assists.
