Fabrizio Romano, in his exclusive Daily Briefing column, recently addressed the buzzing rumors regarding Inter Miami’s Lionel Messi’s speculated loan move to a European club.
Despite being a newcomer to the MLS, Messi may have a significant hiatus due to Inter Miami’s recent playoff exit.
Messi’s prowess undeniably makes him fit to play top-tier European football.
However, Romano emphasizes that no such move is in contemplation, with Messi’s current focus solely on his role in Miami.
The mere thought of Messi returning to Barcelona is undeniably enticing. Yet, Romano douses the current speculations, pointing out that such high-profile players are naturally subjects of media gossip.
Addressing his audience, Romano said, “While I’ve been queried about the news of Messi’s potential loan move to Europe during Inter Miami’s competitive break—a trend once followed by greats like David Beckham and Thierry Henry—I must clarify that I currently have no information supporting these claims.
Messi’s priorities lie with Inter Miami. Though circumstances might evolve, the rumors connecting him to Barcelona, or any other club, lack concrete evidence.”
He further shared his sentiment, expressing, “Undoubtedly, witnessing Messi back in Barcelona would be a heartwarming sight. But ultimately, the decision rests with him.”
For now, Barcelona fans might need to temper their expectations about Messi’s return to the Nou Camp, as it remains a distant dream.
