In the midst of speculation about Lionel Messi’s future, Xavi has admitted his desire to coach the Argentine at Barcelona..
Messi’s contract with PSG expires at the end of the season, and while he reportedly will not make a decision on his future until after the World Cup, a return to Barcelona has been mentioned as a possibility.Xavi, the manager of Barcelona, has stated that Messi is still the best player in the world and that he would like to coach his former teammate, as well as Kylian Mbappe and Neymar.
According to GOAL, he stated, “He is still number one.” Cristiano Ronaldo is still regarded as one of the world’s top three players..
“Sure, Messi can return to Barcelona at some point. Who wouldn’t want to be his trainer? Any of the legends. Mbappe, for example, in France. I’d like to see Neymar and Messi.”
Following reports that the 35-year-old was close to joining Inter Miami, Messi’s agent, Marcelo Mendez, has responded, claiming that no agreement has been reached to join the MLS franchise..
While Barcelona is expected to re-sign their former player, PSG is expected to offer Messi a new contract to stay at the club.
Despite missing a penalty, the forward helped his team advance to the World Cup’s last 16 with a 2-0 win over Poland on Wednesday..
