Andres Iniesta still considers Lionel Messi the best player in the world and has dropped a hint about the Argentine’s future.
Author of a double this week in the Champions League against Maccabi Haifa, Lionel Messi has found a very high level after a complicated season of adaptation to Paris Saint-Germain. At the end of the contract in June 2023 with the club of the capital, the Argentinian is not concerned about his future for the moment, at least he does not let the slightest clue about his intentions filter through.
‘Messi is number one’
After all, Lionel Messi is focused on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar with Argentina which will certainly condition whether or not he wants to continue his adventure in European football. It is therefore those close to the seven-time Ballon d’Or, his clan and his former teammates who position themselves on the future of Lionel Messi and fuel the rumours.
Andres Iniesta, a Spanish football legend currently playing in Japan, has claimed that Lionel Messi could return to Barcelona in the future and backed him to win the World Cup with Argentina in Qatar. In an interview with TYC Sports, Iniesta said: “The Messi before and the one now is different from everyone. He is number one”.
‘Leo can come back to Barca, it’s a possibility’
“The only thing he has done is grow, improve and make his teammates better. A team with Messi has a very important point in getting wins and titles. I haven’t seen anyone do what “He does. Coming back to Barcelona is never easy, but Leo can come back, it’s always a possibility.” added the former Barça.
“Argentina are one of the candidates for the World Cup. They have a great team, with experienced players and young people. They are in a great moment. If Messi is there, of course he is one favorites. Other favorite teams are Brazil, Spain and France. If Leo wins the World Cup, I’m happy as a team-mate“, concluded Andres Iniesta.
Lionel Messi certainly hopes that Andres Iniesta’s prediction will come true at the World Cup. As for the Argentine’s future, Andres Iniesta certainly has a good reason to think he could return to Barca. One thing is certain, next summer, Lionel Messi will have the king’s choice if he continues to evolve at this level. PSG, Barça, surely other European and non-European clubs will be at his feet to count on the Argentinian in their workforce.
