Leo Messi Signable

Pre-order your Inter Miami Lionel Messi Signable to celebrate his latest update!

Inter Miami fans are over the moon right now and understandably so. In case you missed it, superstar goal scorer Lionel Messi recently revealed that he won't be playing for a different team down the road - nope, he's planning to retire with the MLS side. 

There had been speculation that maybe, just maybe, Messi would return to Europe next season, but we know that's not going to be the case. Instead, he's focused on helping Inter Miami win some titles before he ultimately does hang up his cleats.

Lionel Messi said he will retire with Inter Miami down the road 

"I think so, yes. Right now I think it’s going to be my last club, yes," Messi said in an interview with ESPN. "I've done this all of my life. I love playing ball. I enjoy the practices and the day-to-day, the games. Yeah, there's a bit of fear that it's all ending. It's always there. It was a difficult step leaving Europe to come here (Miami). The fact we won the World Cup helped, it helped a lot, to see things in another way. But I try not to think about it. I try to enjoy it. I do that more now because I'm aware that there's not a lot of time left."

Despite being 36 years old, Messi is still playing at an unreal level and he's scoring goals left and right both at the club and international level. This was once again the case on Friday night. 

In a dominant 4-1 Argentina win over Guatemala, Messi scored two lovely goals. Argentina is about to enter the Copa America with a ton of confidence. Don't forget they won that tourney before winning the World Cup too. 

As for Inter Miami, the team is in first place in the Eastern Conference and fans are dreaming of them winning the MLS Cup this year. Should that happen, you already know that Messi will play a massive role in things. 

He's an unreal talent and a joy to watch. While he may end up retiring in a few seasons, the great news for Inter Miami is that he has no plans to leave town to play for anyone else. He'll go down as a Miami legend, no doubt about that.
