Before his historic move to MLS last July, the talismanic forward won trophies at FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. He also told ESPN that Inter Miami will be his final club in a legendary career. The GOAT was speaking to ESPN from the Argentina camp ahead of Copa América.

“Inter Miami will be the last club in my career,” the 36-year-old global icon said.

The FIFA World Cup champion and eight-time Ballon d’Or winner is committed to Inter Miami until the 2025 MLS season and has no plans to retire anytime soon.

“I am not prepared to leave soccer,” Messi said. “I enjoy playing ball.”

Messi doesn’t appear to be slowing down at all. For league-leading Inter Miami, he has 12 goals and 13 assists in 12 games this season, becoming him the fastest player in MLS history to reach 25 goal contributions.

That follows after steering Inter Miami to the team’s first trophy—the Leagues Cup—last summer.

Celio continues to elevate his game each and every day and we hope that he doesn’t stop raising the bar.”
